#### DEAP-Overview

DEAP是一个python遗传算法框架，这里是它的简介。 DEAP documentation

## 一. Types

The first thing to do is to think of the appropriate type for your problem.This is done with the creator module.

For example, the following creates a FitnessMin class for a minimization problem and an Individual class that is derived from a list with a fitness attribute set to the just created fitness.

`from deap import base, creator  creator.create("FitnessMin", base.Fitness, weights=(-1.0,))  creator.create("Individual", list, fitness=creator.FitnessMin)`

That’s it. More on creating types can be found in the Creating Types tutorial.

## 二. Initialization

Once the types are created you need to fill them with sometimes random values, sometime guessed ones. Again, DEAP provides an easy mechanism to do just that.一旦这些类型被创建，你就需要用一些随机的值来填充它们，有时是猜测值。同样的， DEAP极大的提供了这样的一个简单的机制来做这件事儿。

The Toolbox is a container for tools of all sorts including initializers that can do what is needed of them. The following takes on the last lines of code to create the initializers for individuals containing random floating point numbers and for a population that contains them.

toolbox 是一个工具容器，可用来包含各种“初始化体”（可以做它们需要的事儿）。以下是以代码来创建包含随机浮点数的初始化和个人人口包含他们最后的线。下面最后几行代码用来创建“初始化体”，为包含那些随机值的“个体”和包含它们的种群。

`import random  from deap import tools    IND_SIZE = 10    toolbox = base.Toolbox()  toolbox.register("attribute", random.random)  toolbox.register("individual", tools.initRepeat, creator.Individual,                   toolbox.attribute, n=IND_SIZE)  toolbox.register("population", tools.initRepeat, list, toolbox.individual)    #是吧，创建的individual放入了population中`

This creates functions to initialize populations from individuals that are themselves initialized with random float numbers. The functions are registered in the toolbox with their default arguments under the given name.这将创建函数来初始化种群（来自那些用随机浮点数初始化而成的个体们）。这些函数在给定名字的默认参数下被“注册到”toolbox中，

register 感觉这个单词在这儿的理解可以看做是“创建”的意思，然后 toolbox 中就有了 toolbox.individual 。具体理解，还得看后面的详细介绍。

toolbox 貌似和 function 有关，里边的第一个参数就是函数名。因为在 Algorithm 步骤里时，出现了这样的用法 toolbox.population() 。

More initialization methods are found in the Creating Types tutorial and the various Examples.

## 三. Operator

`toolbox.register("mate", tools.cxTwoPoint)`

Operators 都在toolbox模块里，要给每个算子选择合适算法。在 Operator 里边可以给每个步骤的算子分别选择合适的算法。

In addition you must create your evaluation function. This is how it is done in DEAP.就是这个评价功能函数得自己写，其实，也就是适应度函数了！

Note also that fitness values must be iterable, that is why we return a tuple in the evaluate function.就是注意评价函数返回值必须是可迭代的。

`def evaluate(individual):      return sum(individual),    toolbox.register("mate", tools.cxTwoPoint)  toolbox.register("mutate", tools.mutGaussian, mu=0, sigma=1, indpb=0.1)  toolbox.register("select", tools.selTournament, tournsize=3)  toolbox.register("evaluate", evaluate)`

## 四. Algorithms

Now that everything is ready, we can start to write our own algorithm. It is usually done in a main function. For the purpose of completeness we will develop the complete generational algorithm.现在一切具备，我们可以开始写自己的算法了。通常在主函数里边写。完整性的目的,我们将开发完整的分代算法。

`def main():      pop = toolbox.population(n=50)      CXPB, MUTPB, NGEN = 0.5, 0.2, 40        # Evaluate the entire population      fitnesses = map(toolbox.evaluate, pop)      for ind, fit in zip(pop, fitnesses):          ind.fitness.values = fit        for g in range(NGEN):          # Select the next generation individuals          offspring = toolbox.select(pop, len(pop))          # Clone the selected individuals          offspring = map(toolbox.clone, offspring)            # Apply crossover and mutation on the offspring          for child1, child2 in zip(offspring[::2], offspring[1::2]):              if random.random() < CXPB:                  toolbox.mate(child1, child2)                  del child1.fitness.values                  del child2.fitness.values            for mutant in offspring:              if random.random() < MUTPB:                  toolbox.mutate(mutant)                  del mutant.fitness.values            # Evaluate the individuals with an invalid fitness          invalid_ind = [ind for ind in offspring if not ind.fitness.valid]          fitnesses = map(toolbox.evaluate, invalid_ind)          for ind, fit in zip(invalid_ind, fitnesses):              ind.fitness.values = fit            # The population is entirely replaced by the offspring          pop[:] = offspring        return pop`

1. 确定 Types -- creator 创建，选好解决问题的类型

2. 初始化 Initialization -- toolbox 注册个体啊，种群啊等等函数。

3. Operator --算子选择，交叉，变异，选择，进化等等。每个算子都有不同的算法，可以选择的！

4. Algorithms --算法就是具体将上面注册的函数啊，等等应用结合起来，编写流程。
