In this letter, a new optimization algorithm, the Modified compact Genetic Algorithm (M-cGA) is introduced and applied to the synthesis of thinned arrays. The M-cGA has been derived from the compact Genetic Algorithm (cGA), properly modified and improved by implementing more than one probability vector (PV) and adding suitable learning scheme between these PVs. The so-obtained algorithm has been applied to the optimized synthesis of different-size linear and planar thinned arrays: In all the considered cases, it outperforms not only the cGA, but also the other optimization schemes previously applied to this kind of problem, both in terms of goodness of the solution (minimization of the peak sidelobe level) and of computational cost.
