Zones with nonlinear behavior on an object cause intermodulated components in the scattered electromagnetic field. This problem is relevant both for satellite communications and for radio-astronomical applications. Recently, a heuristic model for the passive intermodulation analysis has been derived in a time domain physical optics framework. The heuristic approach proposed requires the determination of few coefficients. Here, a genetic algorithm is introduced for the computation of the optimum values for these coefficients.
