— The island model for distributed genetic algorithms (GAs) is a natural match for the master-worker paradigm in distributed computation. We explore the benefits and drawbacks of several distributed system architectures in developing an implementation of a distributed GA that exploits the Jini and JavaSpace technologies. Our results, using the knapsack(More)
The authors recently developed a method to incorporate alloy scattering into Monte Carlo simulations using first principles density functional theory (DFT) calculations. A statistical model of the alloy is used, and the atomic pseudopotentials include spin-orbit coupling terms. Strain in the alloy and across interfaces is included by lowering the structural(More)
