How to solve optimization problem with discrete decision variable

Subject: How to solve optimization problem with discrete decision variable

From: hailiang shen

Message: 1 of 3

I am trying to solve an optimization problem with GA. And my decision variables are discrete, they are picked up from 50, 100, 150, 250, 350, 500.

Should I custom my population type?

Thanks for any help.
