The symbolic network adds the emotional information of the relationship, that is, the “+” and “-” information of the edge, which greatly enhances the modeling ability and has wide application in many fields. Weak unbalance is an important indicator to measure the network tension. This paper starts from the weak structural equilibrium theorem, and integrates the work of predecessors, and proposes the weak unbalanced algorithm EAWSB based on evolutionary algorithm. Experiments on the large symbolic networks Epinions, Slashdot and WikiElections show the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed method. In EAWSB, this paper proposes a compression-based indirect representation method, which effectively reduces the size of the genotype space, thus making the algorithm search more complete and easier to get better solutions.
