    Lee Spector, William B. Langdon, Una-May O'Reilly, and Peter J. Angeline

    Genetic programming is a form of evolutionary computation that evolves programs and program-like executable structures for developing reliable time—and cost-effective applications. It does this by breeding programs over many generations, using the principles of natural selection, sexual recombination, and mutuation. This third volume of Advances in Genetic Programming highlights many of the recent technical advances in this increasingly popular field.

    Genetic programming, a form of genetic algorithm that evolves programs and program-like executable structures, is a new paradigm for developing reliable, time- and cost-effective applications. The second volume of Advances in Genetic Programming highlights many of the most recent technical advances in this increasingly popular field.

    Genetic programming, a form of genetic algorithm that evolves programs and program-like executable structures, is a new paradigm for developing reliable, time- and cost-effective applications. The second volume of Advances in Genetic Programming highlights many of the most recent technical advances in this increasingly popular field. The twenty-three contributions are divided into four parts: Variations on the Genetic Programming Theme; Hierarchical, Recursive, and Pruning Genetic Programs; Analysis and Implementation Issues; and New Environments for Genetic Programming. The first part extends the core concepts of genetic programming through the addition of new evolutionary techniques—adaptive and self-adaptive crossover methods, hill climbing operators, and the inclusion of introns into the representation. Creating more concise executable structures is a long-term research topic in genetic programming. The second part describes the field's most recent efforts, including the dynamic manipulation of automatically defined functions, evolving logic programs that generate recursive structures, and using minimum description length heuristics to determine when and how to prune evolving structures. The third part takes up the many implementation and analysis issues associated with evolving programs. Advanced applications of genetic programming to nontrivial real-world problems are described in the final part: remote sensing of pressure ridges in Arctic sea ice formations from satellite imagery, economic prediction through model evolution, the evolutionary development of stress and loading models for novel materials, and data mining of a large customer database to optimize responses to special offers.

    Evolutionary Programming V

    Proceedings of the Fifth Annual Conference on Evolutionary Programming

    Peter J. Angeline, Lawrence J. Fogel, and Thomas Bäck

    February 29-March 3, 1996, San Diego, California Evolutionary programming, originally conceived by Lawrence J. Fogel in 1960, is a stochastic and optimization method similar to genetic algorithms, but instead emphasizes the behavioral linkage between parents and their offspring, rather than emulating specific genetic operators as observed in nature.Evolutionary Programming V will serve as a reference and forum for researchers investigating applications and theory of evolutionary programming and other related areas in evolutionary and natural computation. Chapters describe original, unpublished research in evolutionary programming, evolution strategies, genetic algorithms and genetic programming, artificial life, cultural algorithms, and other dynamic models that rely on evolutionary principles. Topics include the use of evolutionary simulations in optimization, neural network training and design, automatic control, image processing and other applications, as well as mathematical theory or empirical analysis providing insight into the behavior of such algorithms. Of particular interest are applications of simulated evolution to problems in biology and economics. A Bradford Book. Complex Adaptive Systems series
