Evolutionary Simulation of Complex Networks’ Structures with Specific Functional Properties
Thorough studies of technological and biological systems revealed that inherent networking structure of those systems possess similar topological properties, like node degree distribution or small-world effect, regardless the context, which those systems are related to. Based on that knowledge there were numerous attempts to develop models that capture particular topological properties of observed complex networks, although little attention was paid to developing models with certain functional properties. Present paper proposes a method for simulation of networks’ structures with functional characteristics of interest using heuristic evolutionary approach and utilizing a simulated annealing algorithm.
