Description

Evolutionary Computation 2: Advanced Algorithms and Operators expands upon the basic ideas underlying evolutionary algorithms. The focus is on fitness evaluation, constraint-handling techniques, population structures, advanced techniques in evolutionary computation, and the implementation of evolutionary algorithms. It is intended to be used by individual researchers and students in the expanding field of evolutionary computation.

Reviews

"This second volume provides very interesting information and updated material on additional topics. It also covers some advanced techniques and discusses the efficient implementation of evolutionary algorithms."

-H.D. Hecker, Zentralblatt Math
