A function which performs conversion between binary and continuous representation
pop_out = coding_ga_binary(pop_in,direction,param)
a list which contains all the individuals in the current population.
'code' or 'decode'. If direction == 'code' then we perform a continuous to binary encoding. Else, we convert from binary to continuous.
a parameter list.
'binary_length': the number of bits by variables. If binary_length = 8 and the variable X is of dimension 2 then the binary code will be 16 bits length.
'minboun': a vector of minimum bounds for the variable X.
'maxbound': a vector of maximum bounds for the variable X.
the population coded to binary or decoded to continuous values.
This function allows to code or decode a population of individuals from (resp. to) continuous variables to (resp. from) binary.
pop_in = list(); pop_in(1) = 2; pop_out = coding_ga_binary(pop_in,'code',) // Will return 11111111 pop_in_2 = coding_ga_binary(pop_out,'decode',) // Should be 2
