Subject: [boost] Proposal for a Differential Evolution C++ library

Hello everybody,

Would there be interest in a C++ Differential Evolution optimization (DE)
library as part of boost? The library is functional but hasn't been made
public yet.

The full documentation is at but I'd
suggest these pages for a first read and .

The zip containing the DE C++ library and helper files is at

The DE main page is at .

I took a peak at the overview and some of the other pages and from what I
can see initially, it looks like a very useful library for artificial
intelligence. I have very limited knowledge in the field but this is
something that grabs my interest, so if it's made public I'll definitely use
it for future projects that would benefit from it. Of course whether it is
suitable for Boost is for others to determine.
