Genetic Algorithm Toolbox for MATLAB, v1.2

Thank you for requesting a copy of the Genetic Algorithm Toolbox.

The Genetic Algorithm Toolbox for MATLAB was developed at the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering of The University of Sheffield, UK, in order to make GA's accessible to the control engineer within the framework of an existing computer-aided control system design package. The toolbox was written with the support of a UK SERC grant, and the final version (v1.2) was completed in 1994.

The Toolbox was originally developed for MATLAB v4.2. It has also been successfully used with subsequent versions up to and including MATLAB 7.

For a more detailed introduction to the capabilities and use of the GA Toolbox, please refer to the two introductory papers and the Toolbox User's Guide, all of which are available at the GA Toolbox homepage at
