This book compares the three most prominent representatives of evolutionary algorithms - genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, and evolutionary programming - computational methods at the border between computer science and evolutionary biology. The algorithms are explained within a common formal framework, thereby clarifying the similarities and differences of these methods. The author also presents new results regarding the role of mutation and selection in genetic algorithms and uses a meta-evolutionary approach to confirm some of the theoretical results.Bäck, Thomas is the author of 'Evolutionary Algorithms in Theory and Practice Evolution Strategies, Evolutionary Programming, Genetic Algorithms' with ISBN 9780195099713 and ISBN 0195099710.
