The content of this site
This site presents documentation and results of the GENETICA project, providing a reference to low‑level implementation details. A general statement of the GENETICA approach to evolutionary problem solving, GENETICA’s theoretical bases, principal methods, justification within the framework of evolutionary computation and comparison with other evolutionary methods are presented in the article titled "GENETICA: A Computer Language That Supports General Formal Expression With Evolving Data Structures" published in the journal IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, volume 7, issue 5, October 2003, pp.456-481.
Specifically this site includes:
· Publications that include the presentation of GENETICA, as well as the report of real scale applications developped in GENETICA.
· A plain in-depth explanation of GENETICA's key concepts, supported by examples and visual effects, as a PowerPoint presentation.
· Presentation of a general method for developing domain specific languages, including GP ones, in GENETICA. The development of the architectural design language G‑CAD in GENETICA is outlined as a case study.
