EvoOpt: Python Implementation of State-of-Art Evolutionary Algorithms

EvoOpt - Evolutionary Optimization in Python EvoOpt: Evolutionary Optimization in Python         Python implementation of state-of-art meta-heuristic and evolutionary optimisation algorithms.

This library is implemented in Numpy (which was written in C) for fast processing speed

Current support for algorithms

[x] Genetic Algorithm

[x] Duelist Algorithm

[X] Particle Swarm Optimization

[X] Gravitational Search Algorithm

[X] Firefly Algorithm

[X] Simulated Annealing

[ ] Multi-Verse Optimization

[ ] Grey-Wolf Optimization

Getting Started

There are four simple steps to run an optimization problem using EvoOpt

(Example 2 from example folder)

Prerequisites

```from solver.DuelistAlgorithm import DuelistAlgorithm
```

**1. Define your function. Say you want to minimize the equation f=(x1,x2) = (x1)^2+(x2)^2 **

```def f(x1,x2):
return x1*x1+x2*x2
```

**2. Define the variables that can be manipulated for optimization. Define their names as string and put them in an array. **

```x=["x1","x2"]
```

3. Define the boundaries for the manipulated variables:

Say:

x1 is bounded from -2 to 10 (-2 is min value of x1 and 10 is max value of x1)

x2 is bounded from 10 to 15 (10 is min value of x2 and 15 is max value of x2)

We can arrange these boundaries according to the definition array in step 2.

Variables x1 x2
Min -2 5
Max 10 15

The corresponding code is:

``` xmin=[-2,5]
xmax=[10,15]
```

4. Setup the solver and start the solve procedure.

```DA=DuelistAlgorithm(f,x,xmin,xmax,max_gen=1000)
DA.solve(plot=True)
```

Example Result Dependencies

Numpy and Matplotlib

Windows:

```\$python -m pip install numpy matplotlib
```

Linux:

```\$pip install numpy matplotlib
```

Installation

You can use two methods for installation:

```\$ git pull https://github.com/tsyet12/EvoOpt
```

Move to the directory:

```\$ cd (directory of EvoOpt)
```

Run setup. The following command installs all files in directory:

```\$ pip install -e .
```

**1. Install from pip **

You can install this package from pip.

Linux:

```\$ pip install EvoOpt
```

Windows:

```\$python -m pip install EvoOpt
```

To be updated.
