public class VectorMutationPipeline
extends BreedingPipeline

VectorMutationPipeline is a BreedingPipeline which implements a simple default Mutation for VectorIndividuals. Normally it takes an individual and returns a mutated child individual. VectorMutationPipeline works by calling defaultMutate(...) on the parent individual.

Typical Number of Individuals Produced Per produce(...) call
(however many its source produces)

Number of Sources
1

vector.mutate (not that it matters)

Method Detail

defaultBase

public Parameter defaultBase()
Description copied from interface: Prototype
Returns the default base for this prototype. This should generally be implemented by building off of the static base() method on the DefaultsForm object for the prototype's package. This should be callable during setup(...).


numSources

public int numSources()
Returns 1

produce

public int produce(int min,
                   int max,
                   int start,
                   int subpopulation,
                   Individual[] inds,
                   EvolutionState state,
                   int thread)
Description copied from class: BreedingSource
Produces n individuals from the given subpopulation and puts them into inds[start...start+n-1], where n = Min(Max(q,min),max), where q is the "typical" number of individuals the BreedingSource produces in one shot, and returns n. max must be >= min, and min must be >= 1. For example, crossover might typically produce two individuals, tournament selection might typically produce a single individual, etc.
