A small genetic algorithm framework written using new Java 8 features
VERSION 1.2 RELEASE 20140922

  • Java 8
  • Maven 3
  • No external dependencies at this time, besides JUnit
  • Note that the current Unit Tests are really just eyeball style tests so I can quickly see if things are working.
  • See examples in the com.mattring.smallevo.examples package

  • 1st example is
  • Attempts to evolve a genome to match the incoming phrase.
  • java com.mattring.smallevo.examples.phrases.PhrasesMain "I love zebras and elephants"

  • 2nd example is
  • Attempts to evolve minimum distance solution to the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP).
  • Reads the tsp_destinations.txt file (which can be created with DestinationFileCreatorMain).
  • The TSP, as I have defined it, is to find the shortest possible path that:
    1. begins at the salesperson's home base (defined as destination[0])
    2. visits every other destination once
    3. returns to home base
  • Provides a javafx-based visual playback of the evolution.
  • java com.mattring.smallevo.examples.travelingsalesman.TravelingSalesmanMain
