Abstract

The original schema theorem (an inequality) has been replaced by an equality that determines the expected next generation for a simple genetic algorithm. This has made possible the computation of the trajectory of expected next generations. Visualization of these evolutionary trajectories beginning from different initial populations has led to the discovery of fractal structures.
