The formula of the mutative scale of chaos and Cauchy mutation is as follows:
where [alpha], [beta] are constant adjustive factors, 0 [less than or equal to] [alpha] [less than or equal to] 1,0 [less than or equal to] [beta] [less than or equal to] 1; x is the individual; f ([x.sub.i]) is the object function; [s.sub.i] is the concentration of individuals; [f.sub.max] is the maximum fitness value; f is the fitness value of mutative individual; t is the iterative generation; [P.sub.r max,] [P.sub.r min] are the maximum and minimum crossover probability; [P.sub.u max], [P.sub.u min] are the maximum and minimum mutation probability; Gen is the maximum iterative times.
