# Category:Genetic algorithms

Computing portal |

Here is a list of articles in the Genetic algorithms category of the Computing portal that unifies foundations of mathematics and computations using computers. A **genetic algorithm** (**GA**) is an algorithm used to find approximate solutions to difficult-to-solve problems through application of the principles of evolutionary biology to computer science. Genetic algorithms use biologically-derived techniques such as inheritance, mutation, natural selection, and recombination. Genetic algorithms are a particular class of evolutionary algorithms.
