Description

This book compares the three most prominent representatives of evolutionary algorithms - genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, and evolutionary programming - computational methods at the border between computer science and evolutionary biology. The algorithms are explained within a common formal framework, thereby clarifying the similarities and differences of these methods. The author also presents new results regarding the role of mutation and selection in genetic algorithms and uses a meta-evolutionary approach to confirm some of the theoretical results.show more
