Overview

Featuring copious introductory material by distinguished scientist Dr. David B. Fogel, this formidable collection of 30 landmark papers spans the entire history of evolutionary computation—from today's investigations back to its very origins more than 40 years ago. Chapter by chapter, Fogel highlights how early ideas have developed into current thinking and how others have been lost and await rediscovery. The introductions to each chapter reflect Fogel's one-on-one conversations with the authors and their colleagues, conducted over a period of four years. Evolutionary Computation: The Fossil Record provides in-depth historical information and technical detail that is simply unmatched in the field. This volume is complete with an extensive bibliography of related literature.

Evolutionary Computation: The Fossil Record will be of particular interest to researchers and students in need of a comprehensive resource on this fascinating area of computer science. Historians will also find the book thoroughly engaging.
