  abstract =     "a new mathematical model of the master-slave
                 architecture for distributed evolutionary computations
                 (EC). This model is validated using a concrete
                 implementation based on the Distributed BEAGLE C++
                 framework. Results show that contrary to (current)
                 popular belief, master-slave architectures are able to
                 scale well over local area networks of workstations
                 using off-the-shelf networking equipment. The main
                 properties of the master-slave are also compared with
                 those of the more mainstream island-model.",
