OptiGen Library v2.0

NeuroDimension has released v2.0 of the OptiGen Library, an object-oriented programming interface, incorporating many optimisation techniques into one single package. It combines the power of single- and multi-objective genetic algorithms, advanced attribute selection algorithms, and other optimisation strategies, such as simulated annealing into a common object-oriented interface.

The OptiGen Library is includes: generational and steady-state genetic optimisation; multi-constraint and multi-objective genetic optimisation, including NSGA II; attribute selection methods such as extended versions of Greedy Search and Back Elimination; solution-based optimisation methods, such as Simulated Annealing; support for all .NET languages, Visual Studio C++, and ActiveX (COM)-capable languages, including VBA in Microsoft Office products; support for 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems; and royalty-free distribution.

The new OptiGen Library is available in three different versions, each of which includes support for 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems: OptiGen Library for C++, OptiGen Library for .NET, and OptiGen Library for COM.
