Abstract

In [12] a system was described for finding good hierarchical decompositions of complex systems represented as collections of nodes and links, using a genetic algorithm, with an information theoretic fitness function (representing complexity) derived from a minimum description length principle. This paper describes the application of this approach to the problem of reverse engineering the high-level structure of software systems.
