Distributed Evolutionary Algorithms in Python
DEAP stands for Distributed Evolutionary Algorithm in Python, it is dedicated to people who wish to learn how to use evolutionary algorithms and to those who wish to rediscover evolutionary algorithms. DEAP is the proof that evolutionary algorithms do not need to be neither complex or complicated.
DEAP is a novel evolutionary computation framework for rapid prototyping and testing of ideas. It seeks to make algorithms explicit and data structures transparent. It works in perfect harmony with parallelisation mechanism such as multiprocessing and SCOOP (http://scoop.googlecode.com/).
