    The paper presents a simple memetic algorithm for the solution of min-max problems. It will be shown how some of the heuristics provide the analogous mechanism of other evolutionary and non-evolutionary heuristics proposed in the literature. It will be also argued that some existing heuristics might not be sufficient to correctly solve the problem and to avoid the so called red-queen effect.
