Number of solutions retrieved by the GA. Boxplots representing the number of matches between MCS retrieved using GA-MCS and APM broken down by cutset cardinality across five runs. Boxes have been drawn around the first and third quartile values, with the median being represented by the horizontal line within the box. Points represent outliers or data with three or lesser number of points. The numbers shown at the top of each plot indicate the total number of MCSs of the given cardinality as found by APM. a, b, c represent results for efficiency maximization and d, e, f for ethanol maximization for the indicated models M1, M2 and M3
