The Practical Handbook of Genetic Algorithms: New Frontiers, Volume II (Practical Handbook of Genetic Algorithms Vol. 2) by Chambers, Lance D.

The mathematics employed by genetic algorithms (GAs)are among the most exciting discoveries of the last few decades. But what exactly is a genetic algorithm? A genetic algorithm is a problem-solving method that uses genetics as its model of problem solving. It applies the rules of reproduction, gene crossover, and mutation to pseudo-organisms so those organisms can pass beneficial and survival-enhancing traits to new generations. GAs are useful in the selection of parameters to optimize a systems performance. A second potential use lies in testing and fitting quantitative models. Unlike any other book available, this interesting new text/reference takes you from the construction of a simple GA to advanced implementations. As you come to understand GAs and their processes, you will begin to understand the power of the genetic-based problem-solving paradigms that lie behind them.The Practical Handbook of Genetic Algorithms presents for the first time new areas of research and implementation. Problems that for many have been considered intractable are shown to be solvable using the techniques described in this work. Specific solution descriptions to real-world problems are provided, or use these as examples to develop solutions to unique problems.Volume II picks up where the first book leaves off and presents the topic from more of an applications point of view. The focus of the book is to show the reader how to develop their own genetic algorithm coding schemes and how and when to employ the GA to solve problems.
