BUGS: Better to Use Genetic Systems

BUGS is a simple interactive genetic algorithms program. The system displays critters on the screen (graphs of Fourier Series) and lets the user select fit ones with the mouse. It is written in the spirit of Richard Dawkins' celebrated Blind Watchmaker software. Breeding is by the genetic operators of selection, crossover, and mutation. Illustrates genetic drift and premature convergence.
