          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
