Abstract  Due to load imbalance and communication overhead the behavior of the runtime of distributed memory machines is very complex. The contribution of this paper is to show that runtime functions predicting the execution time of the communication operations can be generated by means of the genetic programming paradigm. The runtime functions generated dominate those presented in literature, till today.
