     furrow made on the shore by water.]
     Grooves or furrows formed in snow by the action of the wind,
     and running parallel with the direction of the wind. This
     formation results from the erosion of transverse waves
     previously formed.

  genetic algorithm
  GA
  genetic algorithms
  
     (GA) An evolutionary algorithm which generates each
     individual from some encoded form known as a "chromosome" or
     "genome".  Chromosomes are combined or mutated to breed new
     individuals.  "Crossover", the kind of recombination of
     chromosomes found in sexual reproduction in nature, is often
     also used in GAs.  Here, an offspring's chromosome is created
     by joining segments choosen alternately from each of two
     parents' chromosomes which are of fixed length.
  
     GAs are useful for multidimensional optimisation problems in
     which the chromosome can encode the values for the different
     variables being optimised.
