Grammatical Evolution For Hardware Optimization

Pavel Ošmera , Ondřej Popelka


This paper describes a Parallel Grammatical Evolution (PGE) that can evolve complete circuits using a variable length linear genome to govern the mapping of a Backus Naur Form grammar definition. To increase the efficiency of Grammatical Evolution (GE) the influence of backward processing was tested and an influence of several fitness functions. PGE with backward processing can also take advantage of progressive crossover and mutation operators. The algorithm is internally parallel and consists of three different interconnected populations.
