Evolutionary Algorithms are a relatively recent introduction to the field of optimization [1], [2].  They are robust and able to solve problems that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to solve using calculus or other gadient based methods.  The termination criteria for evolutionary algorithms [4] are important considerations [3].  Knowing when an evolutionary algorithm has done all it can do, whether that be convergence to a solution, stalling, or deceleration, allows one to define rules that identify such situations and direct the algorithm to act accordingly.  Â
