GAs for macro cell placement

Bob Wall at CS 580 - Computational Science Blog refers his students to Genetic Algorithm for Cell Placement. In this paper, Henrik Esbensen of Aarhus University informs the reader of the popular role of simulated annealing for cell placement in VLSI layouts. When this paper was written GAs had been used elsewhere in cell placement but not for macro cell placement. This is yet another interesting and efficient application of GAs to circuits. Thanks Bob for pointing this out.

As a side note, what a good idea to use a blog for class communication. Easy to setup and good for guided discussions. See David Goldberg's earlier post about corporate vs. academic blogging.
