Method and device for the genetic representation and evolution of networks

A method for the genetic representation of a network (100), the network having one or more devices (20, 30, 70, 80), each device comprising at least one terminal (21, 22, 23; 71, 72) connected to at least one other terminal (21, 22, 23; 71, 72, 61) by a link with a value of interaction strength. The method includes associating with the devices terminal (21, 22,23; 71, 72) a first sequence of characters (121, 122, 123; 171,172), associating with the other terminal (21,22,23; 71,72, 61) a second sequence of characters (121, 122, 123; 171,172; 162), mapping at least part ofthe first sequence of characters (121, 122, 123; 171, 172) and at least part of the second sequence of characters (121, 122, 123; 171, 172; 161) to the value of interaction strength in order to determine the value of interaction strength.
