Python Lover's Evolutionary Algorithms

PyLEA is a framework for evolutionary algorithms. Its major aim is to be as easy, flexible and modular as possible.

The intended audience is:

  • People who would like to apply evolutionary algorithms to their optimization problems. By specifying the representation of the problem and the fitness evaluation method, they will be able to make use of standard evolutionary operators.
  • People who would like to develop new representations and operators. They will be able to use existing components to derive new ones and easily compare the results.

PyLEA is also registered at the Python Cheeseshop.
