Distributed Evolutionary Algorithms Inspired by Membranes in Solving Continuous Optimization Problems

  title={Distributed Evolutionary Algorithms Inspired by Membranes in Solving Continuous Optimization Problems},
  author={Daniela Zaharie and Gabriel Ciobanu},
  booktitle={Workshop on Membrane Computing},
In this paper we present a new strategy to apply the operators in evolutionary algorithms. This strategy is inspired from the way the evolution rules are used in membrane systems. Moreover, analyzing the similarities and differences between the evolutionary operators and the evolution rules in membrane systems, between membrane structures and communication topologies, and between communication rules in membrane systems and communication policies in evolutionary algorithms, we introduce and a… CONTINUE READING
