How to cite GANetXL work
If you are using GANetXL and writing a conference/journal paper or report, please use the following citation to refer to the paper describing the software:

The new Evolutionary Computing methodology for multiobjective optimization of water distribution system design, GALAXY (Genetically Adaptive Leaping Algorithm for approXimation and diversitY), has been used on a number of benchmarks available on this site. GALAXY was developed as part of the PhD work by Dr Qi Wang.
This was developed into a paper: Wang, Q., D. A. Savić, and Z. Kapelan (2017), GALAXY: A New Hybrid MOEA for the Optimal Design of Water Distribution Systems, Water Resour. Res., doi:10.1002/2016WR019854. The paper is available to view on our website.
The code for the GALAXY algorithm and the brief tutorial can be downloaded from here: GALAXY
