From the reviews:
"Evolutionary computation is a rich and diverse field ... . This book ... delivers a very practical introduction to the basics of the field ... . The tasks considered are all very motivational and advance from instructional toy examples to real world applications. ... The particular strength of the book lies in its didactic capabilities. The instructor will find different suggestions for selecting chapters leading to courses with different focus. ... This makes designing courses with the help of this book ... an easy task." (Thomas Jansen, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 k)
"This book is based on the author's lecture notes of this lectures given at Iowa State University and is an introduction to evolurionary computation, a field which includes genetic algorithms, evolutionary programming, evolution strategies, and genetic programming. The text is intended for computer science, engineering, and other applied mathematics students. ... Finally, the book is a useful guide to using evolutionary algorithms as a problem solving tool." (Emil Ivanov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1102 (4), 2007)
"The present book is mainly focused on genetic algorithms and genetic programming, and successfully explains evolutionary computation through many different applications of these algorithms. ... I enjoyed reading this book ... . All of the chapters of the book are very well written, easy to understand ... . The book could provide a useful background to both undergraduate and graduate students commencing research studies in evolutionary computation. ... very useful for researchers who are planning to develop and apply evolutionary algorithms for their specific problems." (Adil Baykasoglu, The Computer Journal, Vol. 51 (6), 2008)
