Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

"This book is a compilation of different works on evolution. … the book addresses the hot issue of intelligent design (ID) versus evolution. … The book presents interesting work in the area of evolutionary algorithms and their origins and applications. … I recommend this book to everyone who is interested in evolutionary applications and algorithms. Readers will obtain an understanding of most of the applications of evolution, and will find new and interesting approaches to a number of research problems." (Jens Lichtenberg, ACM Computing Reviews, January, 2009)
