Introduction to Evolutionary Computing by A.E. Eiben, J.E. Smith

By A.E. Eiben, J.E. Smith

The total constitution of this re-creation is three-tier: half I offers the fundamentals, half II is anxious with methodological concerns, and half III discusses complicated subject matters. within the moment version the authors have reorganized the fabric to target difficulties, how you can characterize them, after which how one can decide upon and layout algorithms for various representations. additionally they additional a bankruptcy on difficulties, reflecting the general publication concentrate on problem-solvers, a bankruptcy on parameter tuning, which they mixed with the parameter keep watch over and "how-to" chapters right into a methodological half, and eventually a bankruptcy on evolutionary robotics with an outlook on attainable intriguing advancements during this field.

The ebook is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate classes in synthetic intelligence and computational intelligence, and for self-study by means of practitioners and researchers engaged with all features of bioinspired layout and optimization.

Example text

There are a number of components, procedures, or operators that must be specified in order to define a particular EA. The most important components, indicated by italics in Fig. 1, are: • • • • • • representation (definition of individuals) evaluation function (or fitness function) population parent selection mechanism variation operators, recombination and mutation survivor selection mechanism (replacement) To create a complete, runnable algorithm, it is necessary to specify each component and to define the initialisation procedure.

The new organism develops from this zygote by the process named ontogenesis, which does not change the genetic information of the cells. Consequently, all body cells of a diploid organism contain the same genetic information as the zygote it originates from. In evolutionary computing, the combination of features from two individuals in offspring is often called crossover. It is important to note that this is not analogous to the working of diploid organisms, where crossing-over is not a process during mating and fertilisation, but rather happens during the formation of gametes, a process called meiosis.

It is important to remember that variation operators are representation dependent. Thus for different representations different variation operators have to be defined. For example, if genotypes are bit-strings, then inverting a bit can be used as a mutation operator. However, if we represent possible solutions by tree-like structures another mutation operator is required. 6 Survivor Selection Mechanism (Replacement) Similar to parent selection, the role of survivor selection or environmental selection is to distinguish among individuals based on their quality.
