The so-called transmission function framework is described, and implementations of transmission function models are given for a broad range of genetic algorithms. These models describe GA's with a population of infinite size. An actual implementation of these models for a non-trivial problem involving deception is given, these models are traced, and the results are visualized by means of population flow diagrams. These diagrams show that cross-competition between different parts of the optimal solution takes place.
