Item description for Evolution and Biocomputation: Computational Models of Evolution (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) by Wolfgang Banzhaf...
This volume comprises ten thoroughly refereed and revised full papers originating from an interdisciplinary workshop on biocomputation entitled "Evolution as a Computational Process", held in Monterey, California in July 1992. This book is devoted to viewing biological evolution as a giant computational process being carried out over a vast spatial and temporal scale. Computer scientists, mathematicians and physicists may learn about optimization from looking at natural evolution and biologists may learn about evolution from studying artificial life, game theory, and mathematical optimization. In addition to the ten full papers addressing e.g. population genetics, emergence, artificial life, self-organization, evolutionary algorithms, and selection, there is an introductory survey and a subject index.

More About Wolfgang Banzhaf
Markus Brameier received a PhD degree in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science at University of Dortmund, Germany, in 2004. From 2003 to 2004 he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Stockholm Bioinformatics Center (SBC), a collaboration between Stockholm University, the Royal Institute of Technology, and Karolinska Institute, in Sweden. Currently he is Assistant Professor at the Bioinformatics Research Center (BiRC) of the University of Aarhus in Denmark. His primary research interests are in bioinformatics and genetic programming.
Wolfgang Banzhaf is a professor of Computer Science at the Department of Computer Science of Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, and head of the department since 2003. Prior to that, he served for 10 years as Associate Professor for Applied Computer Science in the Department of Computer Science at University of Dortmund, Germany. From 1989 to 1993 he was a researcher with Mitsubishi Electric Corp., first in MELCOa (TM)s Central Research Lab in Japan, then in the United States at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs Inc., Cambridge, MA. Between 1985 and 1989 he was a postdoc in the Department of Physics, University of Stuttgart, Germany. He holds a PhD in Physics from the University of Karlruhe in Germany. His research interests are in the field of artificial evolution and self-organization studies. He has recently become more involved with bioinformatics.
