Grouping Genetic Algorithm

For performing experiments on graph k-colouring with the Grouping Genetic Algorithm (GGA) as introduced by E. Falkenauer. For problem instances it uses the Graph Coloring Problem Generator by Joe Culberson. All results in the paper included as a separate archive.

See the following papers for more details.

  • Comparison of the SAW-ing Evolutionary Algorithm and the Grouping Genetic Algorithm for Graph Coloring (J.I. van Hemert, A.E. Eiben), Technical report, Leiden University, 1997.

This application implements the Stepwise Adaptation of Weigths Algorithm (SAW) and can be used to run experiments on graph k-colouring instances created using the Graph Coloring Problem Generator of Joe Culberson.
