Some defects of the Genetic Programming had been point out first in this paper. To overcome these defects, we proposed the “Seed Selection” genetic algorithm. And the algorithmis implemented in the environment ofMatlab. The numerical results show that the algorithm is effective and rapidly convergent. Furthermore, it can assure the evolution algorithm can’t run into local minimizer.
