Welcome to the Genetic Programming Home Page. This page was originally created by Adam Fraser at Salford University, and is now maintained by Adil Qureshi.

Genetic Programming FAQs

Adam 'htmlised' the frequently asked questions (FAQ) about genetic programming and also created a FAQ for his own code from some of the questions people have asked him. Note that the GP is a very dynamic field and the FAQ may well have material which is out of date, do not mail me but mail the people talked about in the FAQ !

People who do GP

There is a short (but getting longer...every single day) of the odd, but kinda cute people who do GP.

Software Available

Please set your viewer to 'LOAD TO DISK' and then select a program.

Praise be to Tony Povoas for helping with ftp connections.
