Haploid-Diploid Algorithms

This short paper uses the recently presented idea that the fundamental haploid-diploid lifecycle of all eukaryote organisms exploits a rudimentary form of the Baldwin effect. The general approach presented here differs from all previous known work using diploid representations within evolutionary computation. The role of recombination is also changed from that previously considered in both natural and artificial evolution under the new theory. Using the NK model of fitness landscapes and the RBNK model of gene regulatory networks it is here shown that varying landscape ruggedness varies the benefit of a haploid-diploid approach in comparison to the traditional haploid representation in both cases.
