The algorithm adopts the optimal reserved roulette wheel method for chromosome duplication, and adopts optimal reserved sequent crossover operator to achieve the chromosome, whereas mutation operator adopts the improved inversion mutation operator.
(2) When either of the haphazard two points is 0, the other's neighbor is 0, an inversion mutation would produce invalid chromosome, where two zero are neighbors in the chromosome, which is demonstrated in Figure 1.
Inversion mutation operator meanwhile selects a few nodes among all nodes randomly, and the nodes selected are rearranged in inverse order.
These types, depending on the representation used are: Reciprocal exchange Mutation, Inversion mutation, Insertion mutation, Displacement mutation, Boundary mutation and Uniform random mutation.
