  abstract =     "DEAP is a Distributed Evolutionary Algorithm (EA)
                 framework written in Python and designed to help
                 researchers developing custom evolutionary algorithms.
                 Its design philosophy promotes explicit algorithms and
                 transparent data structures, in contrast with most
                 other evolutionary computation softwares that tend to
                 encapsulate standardised algorithms using the black-box
                 approach. This philosophy sets it apart as a rapid
                 prototyping framework for testing of new ideas in EA
                 research. An executable notebook version of this paper
                 is available at",

                 The presented examples covered only a small part of
                 DEAP's capabilities that include evolution strategies
                 (including CMA-ES), multi-objective optimisation
                 (NSGA-II and SPEA-II), co-evolution, particle swarm
                 optimisation PSO, as well as many benchmarks
                 (continuous, binary, regression, and moving peaks), and
                 examples (more than 40).
