First order saddle points have important applications in different fields of science and engineering. Some of their interesting applications include estimation of chemical reaction rate, image segmentation, path-planning and robotics navigation. Finding such points using evolutionary algorithms is a field that remains yet to be well investigated. In this paper, we present an evolutionary algorithm...
