Detailed Description

Genotype base class.

All Genotypes must inherit this one. Each individual contains a vector of Genotype objects. Each Genotype is an independent object with independent parameters.

Each Genotype class must provide its CrossoverOp and MutationOp operator classes!

Genotype usage
A Genotype instance is _active_ if it is used in the individual structure. Active genotypes may be of any number and kind; each active Genotype instance gets an index, e.g.:
  • Binary (id: 0) Binary (id: 1) Bitstring (id: 2) Tree (id: 3)

A genotype instance becomes active if:
