Item description for Advances in Evolutionary Computing by Ashish Ghosh S. Tsutsui...
The term evolutionary computing (EC) refers to the study of the foundations and applications of certain heuristic techniques based on the principles of natural evolution, and thus the aim when designing evolutionary algorithms (EAs) is to mimic some of the processes taking place in natural evolution.
Many researchers around the world have been developing EC methodologies for designing intelligent decision-making systems for a variety of real-world problems. This book provides a collection of 40 articles, written by leading experts in the field, containing new material on both the theoretical aspects of EC and demonstrating its usefulness in various kinds of large-scale real-world problems. Of the articles contributed, 23 articles deal with various theoretical aspects of EC and 17 demonstrate successful applications of EC methodologies.

Excellent coverage of EC on practical problems May 22, 2003
Although the papers are categorized into "theory" and "applications", all papers are quite practice-oriented. The first 23 "theoretical" papers present various sub-fields of EC while still providing good entries to the applications of these sub-fields. The other 17 papers focus on the application of EC techniques on very specific problems, be they combinatorial or mostly applied.
The papers are quite well written so that reading from cover to cover is possible without getting a headache...A very good book to get an idea of the applications of EC on real problems.
