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.
Table of Contents
FITNESS EVALUATION Introduction to fitness evaluation Encoding and decoding functions Competitive fitness evaluation Complexity-based fitness evaluation Multiobjective optimization
CONSTRAINT-HANDLING TECHNIQUES Introduction to constraint-handling techniques Penalty functions Decoders Repair algorithms Constraint-preserving operators Other constraint-handling methods Constraint-satisfaction problems
POPULATION STRUCTURES Niching methods Speciation methods Island (migration) models: evolutionary algorithms based on punctuated equilibria Diffusion (cellular) models
ADVANCED TECHNIQUES IN EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION Population sizing Mutation parameters Recombination parameters Parameter control Self-adaptation Meta-evolutionary approaches Coevolutionary algorithms
IMPLEMENTATION OF EVOLUTIONARY ALGORITHMS Efficient implementation of algorithms Computation time of evolutionary operators Hardware realizations of evolutionary algorithms
"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
We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
