Artificial chemistries by Wolfgang Banzhaf( )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of Artificial life (ALife) is now firmly established in the scientific world, but it has yet to achieve one of its original goals: an understanding of the emergence of life on Earth. The new field of artificial chemistries draws from chemistry, biology, computer science, mathematics, and other disciplines to work toward that goal. For if, as it has been argued, life emerged from pirmitive, prebiotic forms of self-organizations, then studying models of chemical reaction systems could bring ALife closer to understanding the origins of life. In artificial chemistries (ACs), the emphasis is on creating new interactions rather than new materials. The results can be found in both the virtual world, in certain multiagent systems, and in the physical world, in new (artificial) reaction systems. This book offers an introduction to the fundamental concepts of ACs, covering both theory and practical applications. After a general overview of the field and its methodology, the book reviews important aspects of biology, including basic mechanisms of evolution; discusses examples of ACs drawn from the literature; considers fundamental questions of how surveys a range of applications, which include computing, systems modeling in biology, and synthetic life. An appendix provides a Python toolkit for implementing ACs. -- from back cover
Linear genetic programming by Markus Brameier( )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Linear Genetic Programming examines the evolution of imperative computer programs written as linear sequences of instructions. In contrast to functional expressions or syntax trees used in traditional Genetic Programming (GP), Linear Genetic Programming (LGP) employs a linear program structure as genetic material whose primary characteristics are exploited to achieve acceleration of both execution time and evolutionary progress. Online analysis and optimization of program code lead to more efficient techniques and contribute to a better understanding of the method and its parameters. In particular, the reduction of structural variation step size and non-effective variations play a key role in finding higher quality and less complex solutions. This volume investigates typical GP phenomena such as non-effective code, neutral variations and code growth from the perspective of linear GP. The text is divided into three parts, each of which details methodologies and illustrates applications. Part I introduces basic concepts of linear GP and presents efficient algorithms for analyzing and optimizing linear genetic programs during runtime. Part II explores the design of efficient LGP methods and genetic operators inspired by the results achieved in Part I. Part III investigates more advanced techniques and phenomena, including effective step size control, diversity control, code growth, and neutral variations. The book provides a solid introduction to the field of linear GP, as well as a more detailed, comprehensive examination of its principles and techniques. Researchers and students alike are certain to regard this text as an indispensable resource
Evolution and biocomputation : computational models of evolution( Book )

19 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume comprises ten thoroughly refereed and revised full papers originating from an interdisciplinary workshop on biocomputation entitled "Evolution as a Computational Process", held in Monterey, California in July 1992. This book is devoted to viewing biological evolution as a giant computational process being carried out over a vast spatial and temporal scale. Computer scientists, mathematicians and physicists may learn about optimization from looking at natural evolution and biologists may learn about evolution from studying artificial life, game theory, and mathematical optimization. In addition to the ten full papers addressing e.g. population genetics, emergence, artificial life, self-organization, evolutionary algorithms, and selection, there is an introductory survey and a subject index."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the proceedings of EuroGP 2000, the European Conf- ence on Genetic Programming, held in Edinburgh on the 15th and 16th April 2000. This event was the third in a series which started with the two European workshops: EuroGP'98, held in Paris in April 1998, and EuroGP'99, held in Gothenburg in May 1999. EuroGP 2000 was held in conjunction with EvoWo- shops 2000 (17th April) and ICES 2000 (17th-19th April). Genetic Programming (GP) is a growing branch of Evolutionary Compu- tion in which the structures in the population being evolved are computer p- grams. GP has been applied successfully to a large number of di?cult problems like automatic design, pattern recognition, robotic control, synthesis of neural networks, symbolic regression, music and picture generation, biomedical app- cations, etc. In recent years, even human-competitive results have been achieved by a number of groups. EuroGP 2000, the?rst evolutionary computation conference of the new m- lennium, was the biggest event devoted to genetic programming to be held in Europe in 2000. It was a high quality conference where state-of-the-art work on the theory of GP and applications of GP to real world problems was presented
