Detailed Description

template<class Predicate>
struct shark::TournamentSelection< Predicate >

Tournament selection operator.

Selects k individuals at random and returns the best. By default k is 2. The Template parameter represents a Predicate that compares two individuals. It is assumed that this is transitive, that is pred(a,b) = true && pred(b,c) == true => pred(a,c) == true. Possible predicates could compare fitness values or the rank of the two individuals.

The size of the tournament can either be set in the constructor or by setting the variable tournamentSize
