DGENESIS: Distributed GA

This directory contains DGENESIS. Based on GENESIS 5.0, it aims to implement a distributed GA on a network of workstations. Each subpopulation is handled by a UNIX process and communication is via UNIX sockets. The user can set the migration rate, the migration interval and the topology of communication between subpopulations.
Version: 1.0 (27-APR-94) Ports: DGENESIS has been tested on DECstations 5000, microVAX 3100, Sun workstations and PCs running 386BSD 0.1. Porting to other systems using the Berkeley socket interface should be easy. Copying: Copyright (c) 1993.
