These are related to the implementation of the Genetic Algorithm in the
software. You probably need to understand a bit. There should be some
documentation on the AutoDock site explaining how this works, probably more
related to AD3.
I'd google around Genetic Algorithm to try to get an understanding of what
is happening. I don't really understand it well enough to explain.
