Genetic Synthesis of Concurrent Code Using Model Checking and Statistical Model Checking [chapter]

Lei Bu, Doron Peled, Dachuan Shen, Yuan Zhuang
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A deficiency of model checking based GP is that it uses a rather limited number of fitness values, based on a small number of modes for each verified specification property (e.g., satisfies, does not satisfy  ...  We describe here the use of a combination of model checking and statistical model checking for calculating the fitness required by GP, where the fitness is calculated based on statistical model checking  ...  We used a hybrid approach, where we used statistical model checking for most of the duration of the genetic process, but involved model checking at the later part of the genetic process to certify the  ...

Bounded rationality in agent‐based models: experiments with evolutionary programs

S. M. Manson
2006 International Journal of Geographical Information Science  
This paper examines the use of evolutionary programming in agent-based modeling to implement the theory of bounded rationality.  ...  This paper reports on how changing parameters in one variant of evolutionary programming, genetic programming, affects the representation of bounded rationality in software agents.  ...  In this case, a population in the range of 200 to 300 programs is the lowest realistic number, as smaller populations do not converge well on useful strategies.  ...
