Some of the most startling achievements in the use of computers to automate design are being accomplished by the use of evolutionary search algorithms to evolve designs. Evolutionary Design By Computers provides a showcase of the best and most original work of the leading international experts in Evolutionary Computation, Engineering Design, Computer Art, and Artificial Life. By bringing together the highest achievers in these fields for the first time, including a foreword by Richard Dawkins, this book provides the definitive coverage of significant developments in Evolutionary Design. This book explores related sub-areas of Evolutionary Design, including: * design optimization * creative design * the creation of art * artificial life. It shows for the first time how techniques in each area overlap, and promotes the cross-fertilization of ideas and methods. A CD-ROM is included with the book, providing the reader with hands-on activities, evolved images, animations, and source-code related to the text. Evolutionary Design By Computers will be an essential resource for researchers in academia and industry.The crossover of functions worked surprisingly well, with the children of each generation tending to be closely and visibly related to the parent generation, but different enough to allow users to slowly explore the space of images.
