Functional Programming in Scala (draft version)

Sensible programming (FP) is a programming variety emphasizing services that go back constant and predictable effects despite a program's kingdom. consequently, practical code is simpler to check and reuse, less complicated to parallelize, and no more liable to insects. Scala is an rising JVM language that provides powerful help for FP.

Example text

The two most commonly used methods are replace random, which chooses randomly from the potential cells, or replace oldest, which picks the oldest organism from the potential organisms to replace (with a preference for empty cells if any exist). Mass action placement strategies are used in analogy to experiments with microbes in well-stirred flasks or chemostats. These setups allow for exponential growth of new genotypes with a competitive advantage, so that transitions in the state of the population can happen rapidly.

We termed this effect the “survival of the flattest,” because at a sufficiently high mutation rate, a strain that is located at a low but flat fitness peak can outcompete one that is located on a high but steep fitness peak. 3 Evolution of Digital Ecosystems The experiments discussed above have all used single-niche Avida populations, but evolutionary design is more interesting (and more powerful) when we consider ecosystems. The selective pressures that cause the formation and diversity of ecosystems are still poorly understood [46, 48].

In the following subsections, we present a couple of example programs that will illustrate the basics of the analyze scripting language. A full list of commands available in analysis mode is given in the Avida documentation. dat fitness length viable sequence TRACE PRINT The program starts off with the VERBOSE command, which causes Avida to print to the screen all details of what is going on during the execution of the analyze script; the command is useful for debugging purposes. The program then uses the LOAD SEQUENCE command to define a specific genome sequence in compressed format.
