I'm running a genetic algortithm that seachers for the minumum value created by a 7x7 matrix of variables.
I want to create an partial initial population where each "point" is actually a 7x7 matrix of values. I want a total population of 100 but I want the partial initial population to consist of 26 matrices each 7x7. From the documentation it seems like each point needs to be a double value, rather than a matrix. Is there a way to trick the GA into accepting these matrices?
Many thanks in advanced!
