Q20.3: Current research projects?


The European ESPRIT III project PAPAGENA is pleased to announce the availability of the following book and software:

Parallel Genetic Algorithms: Theory and Applications was recently published by IOS press. The book, edited by Joachim Stender, provides an overview of the theoretical, as well as practical, aspects involved in the study and implementation of parallel GENETIC ALGORITHMs (PGAs).

The book comes with a floppy disk version of GAME (Genetic Algorithm Manipulation Environment). For more information see the section on GAME in Q20.2.


PeGAsuS is a general programming environment for evolutionary algorithms. developed at the German National Research Center for Computer Science. Written in ANSI-C, it runs on MIMD parallel machines, such as transputers, and distributed systems, as well as serial machines.

The Library contains GENETIC OPERATORs, a collection of FITNESS functions, and input/output and control procedures. It provides the user with a number of validated modules. Currently, PeGAsuS can be compiled with the GNU C, RS/6000 C, ACE-C, and Alliant's FX/2800 C compilers. It runs on SUNs and RS/6000 workstations, as well as on the Alliant FX/28. PeGAsuS is not available to the public.
