Continuous Optimization using Memetic Algorithms with Local Search Chains (MA-LS-Chains) in R

An implementation of an algorithm family for continuous optimization called memetic algorithms with local search chains (MA-LS-Chains). Memetic algorithms are hybridizations of genetic algorithms with local search methods. They are especially suited for continuous optimization.
