What is Platypus?

Platypus is a framework for evolutionary computing in Python with a focus on multiobjective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs). It differs from existing optimization libraries, including PyGMO, Inspyred, DEAP, and Scipy, by providing optimization algorithms and analysis tools for multiobjective optimization. It currently supports NSGA-II, NSGA-III, MOEA/D, IBEA, Epsilon-MOEA, SPEA2, GDE3, OMOPSO, SMPSO, and Epsilon-NSGA-II. For more information, see our IPython Notebook or our online documentation.

Example

For example, optimizing a simple biobjective problem with a single real-valued decision variables is accomplished in Platypus with:


    from platypus import NSGAII, Problem, Real

    def schaffer(x):
        return [x[0]**2, (x[0]-2)**2]

    problem = Problem(1, 2)
    problem.types[:] = Real(-10, 10)
    problem.function = schaffer

    algorithm = NSGAII(problem)
    algorithm.run(10000)
