  abstract =     "Many evolutionary systems have been developed that
                 solve various specific scheduling problems. One such
                 permutation based system, which uses a linear GP type
                 Genotype to Phenotype Mapping (GPM), known as the
                 Random Key Genetic Algorithm is investigated. The role
                 standard mutation plays in this representation is
                 analysed formally and is shown to be extremely
                 disruptive. To ensure small fixed sized changes in the
                 phenotype a swap mutation operator is suggested for
                 this representation. An empirical investigation reveals
                 that swap mutation outperforms the standard mutation to
                 solve a hard deceptive problem even without the use of
                 crossover. Swap mutation is also used in conjunction
                 with different crossover operators and significant
                 boost has been observed in the performance especially
                 in the case of headless chicken crossover that produced
                 surprising results.",
