The Effect of Network Structure on the Spatial Coevolutionary GA

Morgan McLaughlin and Mark Wineberg

Abstract (Excerpt)

Using the simple one-max problem we will show the range of effects spatial networks have on spatial coevolutionary Genetic Algorithms (GAs). Non-coevolutionary spatial GAs have had their spatial reproductive structures tested to show that different structures can result in varying performance; Coevolutionary variants however have not. In this extended abstract we show that varying types of spatial structures can impact the coevolutionary GA differently than the standard GA.
