Abstract
Most implementations of Cartesian genetic programming (CGP) which can be found in the literature are sequential. However, solving complex design problems by means of genetic programming requires parallel implementations of search methods and fitness functions. This paper deals with the design of highly optimized implementations of CGP and their detailed evaluation in the task of evolutionary circuit design. Several sequential implementations of CGP have been analyzed and the effect of various additional optimizations has been investigated. Furthermore, the parallelism at the instruction, data, thread and process level has been applied in order to take advantage of modern processor architectures and computer clusters. Combinational adders and multipliers have been chosen to give a performance comparison with state of the art methods.
