    Abstract

    This paper discusses the effects of using directed intervention crossover approaches with Genetic Algorithms (GA) and demonstrates their application to scheduling of bio-control agents and cancer chemotherapy treatments. Unlike traditional approaches such as Single Point Crossover (SPC) or Uniform Crossover (UC), the directed intervention techniques actively choose the intervention level based on the fitness of the parents selected for crossover. This work shows that a fitness directed intervention crossover approach leads to significant improvements over SPC and UC when applied to the two different scheduling problems.
