A clear and lucid bottom-up approach to the basic principles of evolutionary algorithms

Evolutionary algorithms (EAs) are a type of artificial intelligence. EAs are motivated by optimization processes that we observe in nature, such as natural selection, species migration, bird swarms, human culture, and ant colonies.

This book discusses the theory, history, mathematics, and programming of evolutionary optimization algorithms. Featured algorithms include genetic algorithms, genetic programming, ant colony optimization, particle swarm optimization, differential evolution, biogeography-based optimization, and many others.

Evolutionary Optimization Algorithms:

  • Provides a straightforward, bottom-up approach that assists the reader in obtaining a clear—but theoretically rigorous—understanding of evolutionary algorithms, with an emphasis on implementation
  • Gives a careful treatment of recently developed EAs—including opposition-based learning, artificial fish swarms, bacterial foraging, and many others— and discusses their similarities and differences from more well-established EAs
  • Includes chapter-end problems plus a solutions manual available online for instructors
  • Offers simple examples that provide the reader with an intuitive understanding of the theory
  • Features source code for the examples available on the author's website
  • Provides advanced mathematical techniques for analyzing EAs, including Markov modeling and dynamic system modeling

Evolutionary Optimization Algorithms: Biologically Inspired and Population-Based Approaches to Computer Intelligence is an ideal text for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and professionals involved in engineering and computer science.

Parallel Genetic Algorithms: Theory and Real World Applications (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Parallel Genetic Algorithms: Theory and Real World Applications (Studies in Computational Intelligence)

This book is the result of several years of research trying to better characterize parallel genetic algorithms (pGAs) as a powerful tool for optimization, search, and learning. Readers can learn how to solve complex tasks by reducing their high computational times. Dealing with two scientific fields (parallelism and GAs) is always...


ARM Assembly Language Programming
ARM Assembly Language Programming
Like most interesting subjects, assembly language programming requires a little background knowledge before you can start to appreciate it. In this chapter, we explore these basics. If terms such as two's complement, hexadecimal, index register and byte are...
Analysis of Phylogenetics and Evolution with R (Use R!)
Analysis of Phylogenetics and Evolution with R (Use R!)
The study of the evolution of life on Earth stands as one of the most complex fields in science. It involves observations from very different sources, and has implications far beyond the domain of basic science. It is concerned with processes occurring on very long time spans, and we now know that it is also...
Knapsack Problems: Algorithms and Computer Implementations (Wiley Series in Discrete Mathematics and Optimization)
Knapsack Problems: Algorithms and Computer Implementations (Wiley Series in Discrete Mathematics and Optimization)
Here is a state of art examination on exact and approximate algorithms for a number of important NP-hard problems in the field of integer linear programming, which the authors refer to as ``knapsack.'' Includes not only the classical knapsack problems such as binary, bounded, unbounded or binary multiple, but also less familiar problems...
