Many scientists and engineers now use the paradigms of evolutionary computation (genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, evolutionary programming, genetic programming, classifier systems, and combinations or hybrids) to tackle problems that are either intractable or unrealistically time consuming to solve through traditional computational strategies. The Handbook of Evolutionary Computation addresses the need for a comprehensive source of reference in the maturing field of evolutionary computation. The handbook is available in a looseleaf print format and an online format.
