This paper presents some results on evolutionary optimization of trellis-coded modulation (TCM) schemes. The TCM-encoder and output mapping used in a TCM system are represented as a nite state machine whose parameters are optimized using various genetic operators. Through extensive simulation it is shown that it is possible to consistently arrive at hand-generated (Ungerbck) codes for AWGN channels which are known to be close to the theoretical optimum as determined by the Shan-non bound.
