As optimization researchers tackle larger and larger problems, scale interactions play an increasingly important role. One general strategy for dealing with a large or difficult problem is to partition it into smaller ones, which are hopefully much easier to solve, and then work backwards towards the solution of original problem, using a solution from... more...

The success of a genetic algorithm when applied to an optimization problem depends upon several features present or absent in the problem to be solved, including the quality of the encoding of data, the geometric structure of the search space, deception or epistasis. This book deals essentially with the latter notion, presenting for the first time... more...
