Adaptation in natural and artificial systems : an introductory analysis with applications to biology, control, and artificial intelligence by John H Holland( Book )

48 editions published between 1975 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genetic algorithms are playing an increasingly important role in studies of complex adaptive systems, ranging from adaptive agents in economic theory to the use of machine learning techniques in the design of complex devices such as aircraft turbines and integrated circuits. Adaptation in Natural and Artificial Systems is the book that initiated this field of study, presenting the theoretical foundations and exploring applications. In its most familiar form, adaptation is a biological process, whereby organisms evolve by rearranging genetic material to survive in environments confronting them. In this now classic work, Holland presents a mathematical model that allows for the nonlinearity of such complex interactions. He demonstrates the model's universality by applying it to economics, physiological psychology, game theory, and artificial intelligence and then outlines the way in which this approach modifies the traditional views of mathematical genetics. Initially applying his concepts to simply defined artificial systems with limited numbers of parameters, Holland goes on to explore their use in the study of a wide range of complex, naturally occuring processes, concentrating on systems having multiple factors that interact in nonlinear ways. Along the way he accounts for major effects of coadaptation and coevolution: the emergence of building blocks, or schemata, that are recombined and passed on to succeeding generations to provide, innovations and improvements. -- Publisher description
Hidden order : how adaptation builds complexity by John H Holland( Book )

31 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The father of the field of genetic algorithms, and one of the pioneers of the new science of complexity, Holland has been at the center of the emerging field of complex adaptive systems (cas) since its inception." "This landmark book offers for the first time a coherent synthesis of this nascent discipline, a summing up which carries on every page the weight of Holland's authority and distinctive point of view. This book emphasizes the search for general principles that govern cas behavior, enlarging on the intuitions of a broad spectrum of scientists, and it includes a computer model that applies to the full range of cas. Holland concludes with a description of what we might do to enhance our theoretical understanding of cas. He suggests ways in which theory can provide useful guidelines for attacking the perplexing cas problems that stretch our resources and place our world in jeopardy."--Jacket
Complexity : a very short introduction by John H Holland( Book )

Adaptive ecologies : correlated systems of living by Theodore Spyropoulos( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent architecture has found itself having to cope with new social and cultural complexities that demand networked systems that are time- based, reconfigurable and evolutionary, and a corresponding model of urbanism defined as an adaptive ecology. It is against this backdrop that the AA's graduate Design Research Lab (DRL) has pursued its recent studio agenda through project-based research focusing on alternative models of housing. Integral to this research is a notion of architecture that looks towards designing systems that seek higher ordered goals emerging through an intimate correlation of material and computational interaction. This book presents the results of this research and with it constructs a generative view of space and structure and the exploration of behaviourbased models of living through patterns found in nature."--Publisher's website
Aha ... that is interesting! John H. Holland, 85 years young( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Holland is one of the few scientists, who all by themselves and by their pursuits, helped change the course of science and the wealth of human knowledge. There is hardly a field of science or problems, that is not affected by John's work on complexity and in particular, complex adaptive systems. On the occasion of his 85th birthday, many of his friends wrote about John, about facets of this remarkable man that only people close to him can know and tell. This book collects those stories highlighting aspects of the creation of complexity science that will most likely not be found in the books on John's works. The stories and anecdotes about his quests, his collaborators, and his friends, show his incredible mind, his boyish curiosity and explorative energy, his philosophy of life, his enormous hospitality and natural inclination to make friends

Hierarchical descriptions, universal spaces and adaptive systems( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The power of an adaptive system depends critically upon its ability to exploit common factors in successful techniques. Each time a device is tried, information accrues about components of each of the potential decompositions. Thus, the richer the variety of decompositions, the higher the effective sampling rate. Of course, to exploit this information about components, the adaptive system must use it to infer the performance of untried devices. And these inferences must, in turn, be used to plan which devices should be generated and tried next. At each stage, the flexibility and success of the process depends upon the flexibility and richness of the system's analysis and synthesis procedures. Among the many important procedures are those of: Substitution, Abstraction, Refinement, Modeling, Change of Representation, and Metacontrol. A structural formalism well-attuned to such procedures will exhibit three critical characteristics: Hierarchical Description, Self-Applicability, and Incorporation of Models. Formalisms with these characteristics are studied using a broad class of automaton representations, the class of compositions, which includes countably infinite devices such as von Neumann's cellular space and iterative circuit computers.

Iterative circuit computer: characterization and resume of advantages and disadvantages( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report begins with a revised characterization of the class of iterative circuit computers (i.c.c.), the various members f this class being determined by the substituton instances of a quintuple (A, A to the O power, X, f, P) where A is any finitely generated abelian group, A to the O power is a selected subset thereof, X is any finite set, f and P are finite functions over extensions of X.A brief decription of the relation of i.c.c.'s to universal embedding spaces follows. The report concludes with a discussion of some of the advantages and disadvantages of i.c.c. rganiation for computers constructed of microelectric modules. (Author)
