Abstract

The increasing availability of clusters of machines has allowed the fast development of pGAs [6]. Most popular parallel GAs split the whole population into separate subpopulations that are dealt with independently (islands). A sparse exchange of information among the component subalgorithms leads to a whole new class of algorithms that do not only perform faster (more steps by unit time), but that often lead to superior numerical performance [30, 106, 107].
