GENEsYs: Experimental GA based on GENESIS

This directory contains GENEsYs, a genetic algorithms implementation based on Grefenstette's GENESIS. It includes extensions and new features for experimental purposes, such as different selection mechanisms (linear ranking, Boltzmann selection, mu-selection, lambda-selection), general extinctive selection variants, and extended recombination operators (m-point, uniform, discrete and intermediate recombination). Self-adaptation of mutation rates is also possible. A set of objective functions is provided, including De Jong's functions, complicated continuous functions, a TSP-problem, binary functions, and a fractal function. There are also additional data-monitoring facilities such as recording average, variance and skew of object variables and mutation rates, or creating bitmap-dumps of the population.
