This volume comprises the 61 revised refereed papers accepted for presentation at the ICEC/PPSN III conferences held jointly in Jerusalem, Israel in October 1994.
With the appearance of more and more powerful computers, there is increased interest in algorithms relying upon analogies to natural processes. This book presents a wealth of new theoretical and experimental results on artificial problem solving by applying evolutionary computation metaphors, including evolution strategies, evolutionary programming, genetic algorithms, genetic programming, and classifier systems. Topics such as simulated annealing, immune networks, neural networks, fuzzy systems, and complex, real-world optimization problems are also treated.
