Overview

This book is concerned with the application of Evolutionary Algorithms (EA) in the domain of management. EA are powerful and broadly applicable search and optimisation techniques based on principles from evolution theory, with Genetic Algorithms being the most well-known class. The first part of this volume introduces to EA, and contains a discussion of the current state regarding management applications with many useful references. The other parts present papers on innovative management applications of EA. They range from examples in industry, financial services, trade, and traffic management to planning in education, demonstrating the versatility and power of EA. The reader will gain an understanding of the field, be able to appreciate the application potential of EA, and discover many stimulations for own work.
