Abstract: The minimisation of edge crossings in a book drawing of a graph is one of the important goals for a linear VLSI design, and the 2-page crossing number of a graph provides an upper bound for the standard planar crossing number. We design genetic algorithms for the 2-page drawings, and test them on the benchmark test suits, Rome graphs and Random Connected Graphs. We also test some circulant graphs, and get better results than previously presented in the literature. Moreover, we formalise three conjectures for certain kinds of circulant graphs, supported by our experimental results.
