The probability associated with population fitness in a Genetic Algorithm (GA) is studied using the concept of average Euclidean distance. Based on the probability derived from population fitness, the GA can effectively terminate its evolution operations to mitigate the total computational load. Simulation results verify the feasibility of the derived probability used for the GA's termination strategy.
