I'm no expert of GAs but Mathematica's NMinimize function includes
Differential Evolution as one of its method options. I believe DEs are of
the same evolutionary family as GAs. You might find that it will serve you
just as well. I can't make any claims as to which is better or worse, but I
do know that DEs are available for you to consider.
