This work was inspired by author experiences with a telescope scheduling. Author long time goal is to develop and further extend software for an autonomous observatory. The software shall provide users with all the facilities they need to take scientific images of the night sky, cooperate with other autonomous observatories, and possibly more. This works shows how genetic algorithm can be used for scheduling of a single observatory, as well as network of observatories. 
Genetic algorithms in astronomy and astrophysics
This review paper provides a very brief introduction to GAs and outlines their utility in astronomy and astrophysics.
Scheduling in Targeted Transient Surveys and a New Telescope for CHASE
We present a method for scheduling observations in small field-of-view transient targeted surveys. The method is based on maximizing the probability of detection of transient events of a given type
Optimal scheduling solution for Sapienza Optical Network for space debris monitoring
This paper outlines the benefits of the presented solution based on a modular architecture and microservices and outlines the results of the application of the NICO scheduler to the recent IADC optical observation campaigns (Inter-Agency Space Debris Coordination Committee).
RTS 2 : meta-queues scheduling and its realisation for FLWO 1 . 2 m telescope
RTS2, or Remote Telescope System 2nd Version, is an open-source, distributed and modular observatory control system. During the course of its development lasting over a decade, the original goal to
RTS2: meta-queues scheduling and its realisation for FLWO 1.2m telescope
This presentation would like to share the experience with meta-queues scheduling, developed primarily for automation of the FLWO 1.2m telescope.
Modeling and Simulation of Sky Survey
Sky surveys with wide and deep field are the key direction of international astronomy research for the next decades. It is worthwhile to study how to design a sky survey algorithm to obtain the
DEdicated MONitor of EXotransits and Transients (DEMONEXT): a low-cost robotic and automated telescope for followup of exoplanetary transits and other transient events
We present the design and development of the DEdicatedMONitor of EXotransits and Transients (DEMONEXT), an automated and robotic 20 inch telescope jointly funded by The Ohio State University and


Scheduling for Robonet-1 homogenous telescope network
The Robonet-1 homogenous telescope network consists of 3 fully robotic 2 m class telescopes. I describe how the observation requests submitted by external users and automated user agents are selected
RTS2: a powerful robotic observatory manager
The evolution of R TS2 is described, from Python-based RTS to C and later C++ based RTS2, focusing on the problems faced during development, and the internal structure of Rts2, focuses on object layering, which is used to uniformly control various devices and provides uniform reporting layer.
Multiobjective Scheduling by Genetic Algorithms
From the Publisher: Multiobjective Scheduling By Genetic Algorithms describes methods for developing multiobjective solutions to common production scheduling situations modeling in the literature as
A fast and elitist multiobjective genetic algorithm: NSGA-II
This paper suggests a non-dominated sorting-based MOEA, called NSGA-II (Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm II), which alleviates all of the above three difficulties, and modify the definition of dominance in order to solve constrained multi-objective problems efficiently.
Astronomical Algorithms
This book intends to be a guide for the (professional or amateur) astronomer who wants to do calculations, although a few astronomy oriented mathematical techniques are dealt with, such as interpolation, fitting curves, and sorting data.
A Multiobjective Evolutionary Conceptual Clustering Methodology for Gene Annotation Within Structural Databases: A Case of Study on the Gene Ontology Database
This work proposes a novel conceptual clustering methodology termed EMO-CC, relying on the NSGA-II multiobjective (MO) genetic algorithm, and applies this methodology to identify conceptual models in structural databases generated from gene ontologies that can explain and predict phenotypes in the immunoinflammatory response problem.
