The Traveling Salesman Problem as a Benchmark Test for a Social-Based Genetic Algorithm

N. A. AL-Madi and A. T. Khader

Abstract

Present research, showed Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) to compare values and results concerning the averages and best fits of both, Simple Standard Genetic Algorithm (SGA) and a new approach of Genetic Algorithms named Social-Based Genetic Algorithm (SBGA). Results from TSP test on Social-Based Genetic Algorithms (SBGA) were presented. Results were encouraging in Social-Based Genetic Algorithms (SBGA) performs better in finding best fit solutions of generations in different populations than the Simple Standard Genetic Algorithm.
