This measures the amount of universal time-units a classical Genetic Algorithm needs for one String to evolve into another, thus representing a perfect way to measure the String-metric distances.
The smallest distance is -1 while the largest is infinite.
This means that calculations with -1 to -0 universal-time units came from the past, and that such Strings already exist in this universe; thus representing a negative value. Furthermore, -1 universal time-unit is the maximum allowed time-travel for the quantum-level.
The universal time-unit represents the CPU power of approx. 171.7Ghz - 180Ghz which is based on the quantum mechanics of a time-travel. Today, we can only approximate such a device, and this algorithm does such a task telling us how many time-units one String needs to evolve into another representing a different approach to String Metrics. Input is two Strings, output is an approximated double as a distance in universal time-units.

  • Open a README.txt to find out how to use this program
  • If you don't believe that time-travel on a quantum level is possible, add +1 to your result, and make everything that is less than 0 equal 0, so that 0 is the minimum distance.
