GENEsYs is a Genesis-based GA implementation which includes extensions and new features for experimental purposes, such as SELECTION schemes like linear ranking, Boltzmann, (mu, lambda)-selection, and general extinctive selection variants, CROSSOVER operators like n-point and uniform crossover as well as 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.
GENEsYs 1.0 is available via FTP from ftp://lumpi.informatik.uni-dortmund.de/pub/GA/src/GENEsYs-1.0.tar.Z The documentation alone is available as /pub/GA/docs/GENEsYs-1.0-doc.tar.Z
