%X The following article presents the description and application of an algorithm for optimal searching for the new stable atomic arrangements of two-dimensional graphenelike carbon lattices with predefined mechanical properties. The proposed method combines the evolutionary algorithm and the conjugate-gradient optimization. The main goal of the optimization is to find stable arrangements of carbon atoms placed in the unit cell with imposed periodic boundary conditions, which reveal desired mechanical properties. Examples of the newly obtained models of the flat, carbon materials are presented. Their mechanical properties are additionally validated during the simulation of the tensile tests using molecular dynamics.
