Sugal is the SUnderland Genetic ALgorithm system. The aim of Sugal is to support research and implementation in Genetic Algorithms on a common software platform. As such, Sugal supports a large number of variants of Genetic Algorithms, and has extensive features to support customisation and extension. Some features:

  • Supports multiple datatypes seamlessly: bit strings, integers, real numbers, symbols (from arbitrarily sized alphabets), permutations. Also supports mixed datatypes.
  • A powerful and general Genetic Algorithm
  • Generates extensive statistics on population fitness and diversity.
  • Interface can be extended and/or customised using simple registration routines and screen layout files.
  • Conducts multiple experiments and calculates aggregate statistics.
  • Users can add their own configuration file parameters and/or add additional options to existing parameters.
