Book Description

Practical Handbook of Genetic Algorithms, Volume 3: Complex Coding Systems contains computer-code examples for the development of genetic algorithm systems - compiling them from an array of practitioners in the field.
Each contribution of this singular resource includes:

  • unique code segments
  • documentation
  • description of the operations performed
  • rationale for the chosen approach
  • problems the code overcomes or addresses
    Practical Handbook of Genetic Algorithms, Volume 3: Complex Coding Systems complements the first two volumes in the series by offering examples of computer code. The first two volumes dealt with new research and an overview of the types of applications that could be taken with GAs. This volume differs from its predecessors by specifically concentrating on specific functions in genetic algorithms, serving as the only compilation of useful and usable computer code in the field.
