%This function inputs an initial population P, as a matrix whose rows are
%binary strings of the same length (for some GA problem), and an objective
%function f (for the GA). The output is a matrix M of the same size as
%P, each of whose rows have been randomly selected from the rows of P where
%the probability that a given row is selected equals its fitness level
%divided by the sum of all the fitness values of the rows of P. The
%nonnegative fitness function used is simply max(0,f(x)).
