The single bit mutation and one point crossover operations are most
commonly implemented on a chromosome that is encoded as a bit string.
If the actual arguments are real numbers this implies a fixed point
encoding and decoding each time an argument is updated. A method is
presented here for applying these operators to floating point numbers
directly, eliminating the need for bit strings. The result accurately
models the equivalent bit string operations, and is faster overall.
