About These Pages
The initial version of these pages was developed during August and September 1998 at Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Dresden (FH) (University of Applied Sciences) by Marek Obitko, at that time student of the Czech Technical University. First versions of some applets were written during summer semester 1998 at the Czech Technical University, supervised by professor Pavel Slavík. During the stay in Dresden the project was supervised by professor Walter Pätzold from Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Dresden.
This was originally just a small summer project where I was learning both Java and genetic algorithms (and also English, I see that the pages need a few corrections...). And this was both in 1998, and the content of the pages was not updated since that time. Please have this in mind while reading these pages - if you are really interested in GA, continue with more up-to-date resources, as the information here is sometimes oversimplified and not complete.
To my surprise, even after 10 years I receive positive feedback (thanks!), and when the pages were removed a few times because I didn't ask to prolong the web server account, I got many e-mails asking for them. So I have moved the pages here, where they shouldn't disappear any more.
If you would like to send me any comments, questions or suggestions regarding these pages and java applets, use the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. However, please note that I changed my interestes and so I may not be able to answer GA related questions out of the scope of this small tutorial.
