Grouping Genetic Algorithm

1 Oct 1997

For performing experiments on graph k-colouring with the Grouping Genetic Algorithm (GGA) as introduced by E. Falkenauer. For problem instances it uses the Graph Coloring Problem Generator by Joe Culberson. All results in the paper included as a separate archive.

See the following papers for more details.
