Genetic Optimizer (GENOPT)

The optimizer GENOPT is a genetic optimizer which uses a multi-threaded C++ interface of the ``Genetic Algorithm Library'' (GALIB) [262] with some extensions for multi-threaded operations. GENOPT provides a subset of the capabilities of the GALIB such as the standard selection, mutation and crossover operators as well as scaling and termination methods [261,263,243]. However, the convergence of this genetic optimizer is quite slow and should be used only if the other optimization strategies fail.
