• ### Method Summary

Methods
Modifier and Type Method and Description
List<T> decode(List<T> sequence)
Permutes the sequence of objects of type T according to the permutation this chromosome represents.
• ### Method Detail

• #### decode

List<T> decode(List<T> sequence)
Permutes the sequence of objects of type T according to the permutation this chromosome represents. For example, if this chromosome represents a permutation (3,0,1,2), and the unpermuted sequence is (a,b,c,d), this yields (d,a,b,c).
Parameters:
sequence - the unpermuted (original) sequence of objects
Returns:
permutation of sequence represented by this permutation
