Self-assembly of an evolved multiplier


The figure refers to a multiplier evolved using parameters as given in Table 1. a) All six SLBs plus the default block coded by the genome. Direct connections are given by wires, connection to zero by use of the ground symbol and the function generators are represented by boxes containing four hexadecimal digits. It is implicitly assumed that the function generators are connected to all four inputs. b) Scheme for translating the 16 possible outcomes of a four-bit function generator into a four HEX-digit number. c) Assembly of the multiplier. d) The SLBs for an evolved ALU (Arithmetic Logical Unit). e) The ALU-pattern.
