Book Description

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

Evolutionary algorithms (EAs) are a type of . 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 , 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 and dynamic system

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