Poznań University of Technology

The work presents the description of a method for performing optimized calculations with the use of the genetic algorithm method performed on computers paralleled in a cluster. It defines the scope of electromagnetic calculations which must be performed in order to determine the objective function. It also provides sample factors describing the quality of paralleling the calculation process.
