Hi Coders,

I'm running many optimizations and I would like to clarify few things.

1. Could you explain me please the meaning of Genetic algorithm option at the optimization? What does it use for? How is it working?

Genetic algorithm

And there is the Optimization panel in this window:

Optimization panel

2. What are these limitations?

Thank you in advance.

  1. If you have more than a small number of parameters then number of combinations will be in the billions and optimization would take years. Genetic algorithm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia reduces that to 8000-20000 tries.
  2. Checking those stops the optimizer early if the condition is met.
