Hierarchical genetic computation in optimal design

Joanna Kołodziej, Robert Schaefer, Anna Paszyńska
The paper presents two examples of genetic hierarchic global optimization methods. They are two different goals of introducing hierarchy into the computational model: to perform the multi-scale search with the adapted accuracy and to better express the structure geometry in the optimal shape design. Results of the formal analysis and simple computational examples are also attached.
Keywords: hierarchical genetic optimization; graph encoding; shape optimization
