Sample text

By default, if-n-equ compares whether the contents of the BX and CX registers are identical. However, if if-n-equ is followed by a nop-A, then it will compare AX and BX. Fig. 3 shows a piece of example code that demonstrates the principles of nop modification and complement registers. 01 pop 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 pop nop-A inc inc nop-A inc nop-A swap 10 11 nop-C add 12 nop-A We assume the stack is empty. In that case, the pop returns 0, which is stored in BX. Write 0 into the register AX as well.

The metabolic rate indicates how fast the virtual CPU should run. Metabolic rate is a unitless quantity and is only meaningful when compared to the metabolic rates of other organisms. Thus, if the metabolic rate organism A is twice that of organism B, then A should, on average, execute twice as many instructions in any given time frame as B. Avida handles this with two different schedulers (referred to as the SLICING METHOD in the configuration files). The first one is a perfectly integrated scheduler, which comes as close as possible to portioning out CPU cycles proportional to each organisms’ metabolic rate.

3 Mutations So far, we have described all of the elements that are necessary for selfreplication. However, self-replication alone is not sufficient for evolution. There must be a source of variation in the population, which comes from random mutations. The principal form of mutations in typical Avida experiments are so-called copy mutations, which arise through erroneously copied instructions. Such miscopies are a built-in property of the instruction h-copy. With a certain probability, chosen by the experimenter, the command h-copy does not properly copy the instruction at the location of the read head to the location of the write head, but instead writes a random instruction to the position of the write head.
