Consideration is given to the effects of representations and operators in evolutionary algorithms. In particular, theorems are presented which establish, under some general assumptions, that no choice of cardinality of a representation offers any intrinsic advantage over another. Functionally equivalent algorithms can be constructed regardless of the chosen representation. Further, a similar effective equivalence of variation operators is shown such that no intrinsic advantage accrues to any particular one-parent operator or any particular two-parent operator
