  abstract =     "In this paper we give a representation-independent
                 topological definition of crossover that links it
                 tightly to the notion of fitness landscape. Building
                 around this definition, a geometric/topological
                 framework for evolutionary algorithms is introduced
                 that clarifies the connection between representation,
                 genetic operators, neighbourhood structure and distance
                 in the landscape. Traditional genetic operators for
                 binary strings are shown to fit the framework. The
                 advantages of this interpretation are discussed",
