ecr 2.0: A Modular Framework for Evolutionary Computation in R
The novel R package ecr (version 2), short for Evolutionary Computation in R, provides a comprehensive collection of building blocks for constructing powerful evolutionary algorithms for single- and multi-objective continuous and combinatorial optimization problems. It allows to solve standard optimization tasks with few lines of code using a black-box approach. Moreover, rapid prototyping of non-standard ideas is possible via an explicit, white-box approach. This paper describes the design principles of the package and gives some introductory examples on how to use the package in practise.
