Abstract: This paper identifies the sequential behavior of the linkage learning genetic algorithm, introduces the tightness time model for a single building block, and develops the connection between the sequential behavior and the tightness time model. By integrating the first-building-block model based on the sequential behavior, the tightness time model, and the connection between these two models, a convergence time model is constructed and empirically verified. The proposed convergence time model explains the exponentially growing time required by the linkage learning genetic algorithm when solving uniformly scaled problems.
