### Population: P, P'

The maximal population has over an alphabet . Thus we have elements in the alphabet with .

The working set shall be a subset of with many elements in . The real values of the elements of will be chosen by chance.

Using the scilab program GA_v4.sec15.2 we can call the function to generate a working population with 4 many members, each member with the length=5:

``` -->n=4, l=5,[Pwork]=popgen(n,l)
n  =

4.
l  =

5.
Pwork  =

0.    1.    0.    0.    0.
0.    1.    0.    0.    1.
1.    0.    0.    1.    0.
1.    0.    0.    0.    0.
```
