Genetic Programming Theory and Practice IV was developed from the fourth workshop at the University of Michigan’s Center for the Study of Complex Systems. The workshop was convened in May 2006 to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information related to the rapidly advancing field of Genetic Programming (GP). The text explores the synergy between theory and practice, producing a comprehensive view of the state of the art in GP application.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"Every cutting-edge researcher, in every computational discipline, working on any real-world application, should make it a point to keep abreast of the ongoing progress of genetic programming theory and practice, which is currently available in this book. … a great win-win synergy opportunity here for less-cutting-edge researchers to try these maturing tools on more intuitive data masses; they should be more able to appreciate the results, and the genetic programming cryptography community might then learn something new about how to interpret post-scientific results." (Chaim Scheff, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (8), August, 2008)
