A novel approach symbolizing the principles of chaos and its application to evolutionary heuristics is discussed. The concept of local convergence and its symbolism to chaotic attractors is discussed. A novel approach of having a population driven evolutionary heuristic is then proposed combining the principle of chaotic attractors and edges.
