Genetic Algorithm does not use the specified Initial Population Matrix

1 view (last 30 days)
I am solving an optimisation problem using genetic algorithm and I generated the initial population matrix as shown in the first screenshot below. In normal situations, the objective function should start from using the decision variable values in the first row of the initial population matrix. However, when I debug my codes, I found that the objective function was not using the first row decision variable values. Instead, it started from the bounds of the decision variables (the second screenshot). What's happening here?

Ok I found the problem in my codes. It is the initial population matrix values that violates the linear constraints I specified.
