This paper presents the learning of neural network parameters using a real-coded genetic algorithm (RCGA) with proposed crossover and mutation. They are called the average-bound crossover (AveBXover) and wavelet mutation (WM). By introducing the proposed genetic operations, both the solution quality and stability are better than the RCGA with conventional genetic operations. A suite of benchmark test functions are used to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm. An application example on an associative memory neural network is used to show the learning performance brought by the proposed RCGA.
