This edited volume deals with the theoretical and methodological aspects, as well as various evolutionary algorithm applications to many real world problems originating from science, technology, business and commerce. It comprises 15 chapters including an introductory chapter which covers the fundamental definitions and outlines some important research challenges. Chapters were selected on the basis of fundamental ideas/concepts rather than the thoroughness of techniques deployed.
