EvoHyp

Overview

EvoHyp provides the following packages for evolutionary algorithm hyper-heuristics:

  • GenAlg - A genetic algorithm hyper-heuristic for selection hyper-heuristics
  • DistrGenAlg - A genetic algorithm hyper-heuristic for selection hyper-heuristics which distributes the implementation of the genetic algorithm over a multicore architecture.
  • GenProg  - A genetic programming hyper-heuristic for generation hyper-heuristics.
  • DistrGenProg - A genetic programming hyper-heuristic for generation hyper-heuristics which distributes the genetic programming algorithm over a multicore architecture.
Java Toolkit Version 1.0
  • EvoHyp - contains Java jar files for all four libraries, GenAlg, DistrGenAlg, GenProg, DistrGenProg include InitialSoln, ProblemDomain, Problem and Solution.
  • GenAlg - the jar files for GenAlg including InitialSoln and ProblemDomain.
  • DistrGenAlg - the jar files forDistrGenAlg including InitialSoln and ProblemDomain.
  • GenProg- the jar files for GenProg including Solution and Problem.
  • DistrGenProg - the jar files for DistrGenProg including Solution and Problem.

Example Programs

Project SolveProblem illustrates the use of the GenAlg library and contains the following classes :

  • SolveProblem - Driver class which using GenAlg to create a heuristic combination.
  • ComOptSoln. -  Is an example of the concrete implementation of the abstract class InitialSoln.
  • ComOptProb - Is an example of the concrete implementation of the abstract class ProblemDomain.

Project CreateHeuristic illustrates the use of the GenProg library and contains the following classes:

  • CreateHeuristic - Driver class which using GenAlg to create a heuristic combination.
  • ComOptSoln -  Is an example of the concrete implementation of the abstract class InitialSoln.
  • ComOptProb - Is an example of the concrete implementation of the abstract class ProblemDomain.
  • Entity - Represents an entity to be added to a solution when solving a combinatorial optimisation problem, e.g. an examination in an examination timetabling problem or a bin in one dimensional bin-packing.
