A popular application of genetic algorithms (GAs) is to
attempt to generate good, rapid, approximate solutions
to NP-complete or NP-hard problems.
Previously, in [1], and [4], we introduced a hybrid al-
gorithm combining a GA with simple greedy algorithms
applied to the N-Queens problem and to sports tourna-
ment scheduling. The greedy algorithm makes locally
optimal assignments (to Queens or matches) in some
order. We treat that ordering as the sought after goal,
and thus work with a population whose individuals are
The subject of the present paper is the problem of
graph coloring. We focus the present paper on the
single benchmark problem of coloring a three-colorable
