Mind Evolutionary Algorithm (MEA) imitates the human mind evolution by using similartaxis and dissimilation operations, which overcomes the prematurity and improves searching efficiency. But the generation of the initial population is blind and the addition of naturally washed out temporary subpopulations is random. This paper improved MEA by introducing chaos and difference into it, which brought adequate diversity to the initial population and saved the excellent genes in the evolution. Then the improved MEA is used in the synthesis of sparse antenna arrays. The excellent results of computer simulation show the advantage of array antenna patterns synthesis using the improved MEA.
