function[newPop] = normGeomSelect(oldPop,options)
% NormGeomSelect is a ranking selection function based on the normalized
% geometric distribution.  
% function[newPop] = normGeomSelect(oldPop,options)
% newPop  - the new population selected from the oldPop
% oldPop  - the current population
% options - options to normGeomSelect [gen probability_of_selecting_best]
