Abstract

Selection Enthusiasm is a technique that allows weaker individuals in a population to compete with stronger individuals. In essence, each time a individual is selected its enthusiasm for being selected again is diminished relatively; the converse happens to the unselected individuals i.e. their raw fitness is adjusted. Therefore the fitness of an individual is based on two parameters; objectiveness and Selected Enthusiasm. The effects of such a technique are measured and results show that using selection enthusiasism yields fitter individuals and a more diverse population.
