This paper reports experimental results to test the hypothesis: does the technique change the overall fitness and diversity of Genetic Algorithms. An improved selection algorithm is reported in which a coefficient associated with an individual's fitness is adapted each time an individual is not selected to improve the probability of being selected the next time. The benchmark chosen was symmetric TSP and a new diversity metric was introduced. The results show that using such a technique did improve the overall diversity and fitness of GA. The work in continuing as part of a current PhD project.
