This well-organized, introductory text takes the reader through the new and rapidly expanding field of genetic algorithms step by step, from a discussion of numerical optimization, to a survey of current extensions to genetic algorithms and applications. For the first time, theory is linked to practical application in a variety of disciplines through the presentation of numerous examples. Includes a glossary of important terms and a list of some genetic algorithm routines in pseudocode.
