Genetic programming [4] uses EAs to evolve more complex structures such as Lisp expressions or neural networks to solve specific problems. For a comprehensive discussion of the differences between the various EAs, the interested reader is referred to [1]. 4 Parallel GAs Given the preceding description of the GA, it is clear that the GA may be parallelised in a number of ways. Indeed, there are numerous variations on parallel GAs, many of which are very different from the original GA presented by Holland [5].

Scale: The concept of fitness is central to all EA approaches. Given that many optimisation problems are characterised by a real-valued objective function, these values must be converted into a non-negative fitness value if they are to be handled correctly by the EA. Early work on GAs concentrated on the use of offsetting objective function values so that selection could be based directly on an individual's performances within a population [6]. The use of scaling retains an individual's relative performance and also attempts to bias the selective pressure towards better individuals although still allowing relatively unfit individuals the potential to reproduce.

Robertson used a SIMD connection machine and assigned one individual per processor. 1). Even considering the large communications overhead of this scheme, the objective function evaluation was significantly large for huge speed up to be reported.
