Parallel Genetic Algorithms

Parallel Genetic Algorithms

This book is the result of several years of research trying to better characterize parallel genetic algorithms (pGAs) as a powerful tool for optimization, search, and learning. Readers can learn how to solve complex tasks by reducing their high computational times. Dealing with two scientific fields (parallelism and GAs) is always difficult, and the book […]

Parallel Genetic Algorithms for Financial Pattern Discovery Using GPUs

Parallel Genetic Algorithms for Financial Pattern Discovery Using GPUs

This Brief presents a study of SAX/GA, an algorithm to optimize market trading strategies, to understand how the sequential implementation of SAX/GA and genetic operators work to optimize possible solutions. This study is later used as the baseline for the development of parallel techniques capable of exploring the identified points of parallelism that simply focus on accelerating […]
