ParaDisEO-Based Design of Parallel and Distributed Evolutionary Algorithms

Abstract : ParaDisEO is a framework dedicated to the design of parallel and distributed metaheuristics including local search methods and evolutionary algorithms. This paper focuses on the latter aspect. We present the three parallel and distributed models implemented in ParaDisEO and show how these can be exploited in a user-friendly, flexible and transparent way. These models can be deployed on distributed memory machines as well as on shared memory multi-processors, taking advantage of the shared memory in the latter case. In addition, we illustrate the instantiation of the models through two applications demonstrating the efficiency and robustness of the framework.
