By A. Keane (auth.), Dr. Leila Kallel, Dr. Bart Naudts, Alex Rogers (eds.)

During the 1st week of September 1999, the second one EvoNet summer season college on Theoretical facets of Evolutionary Computing used to be held on the Middelheim cam­ pus of the college of Antwerp, Belgium. initially meant as a small get­ jointly of PhD scholars attracted to the speculation of evolutionary computing, the summer time institution became a winning blend of a four-day workshop with over twenty researchers within the box and a two-day lecture sequence open to a much wider viewers. This ebook is predicated at the lectures and workshop contributions of this summer time tuition. Its first half contains educational papers which introduce the reader to a num­ ber of significant instructions within the conception of evolutionary computing. The tutorials are at graduate point andassume just a simple backgroundin arithmetic and com­ puter technology. No previous wisdom ofevolutionary computing or its concept is nec­ essary. the second one a part of the booklet involves technical papers, chosen from the workshop contributions. a couple of them construct at the fabric of the tutorials, exploring the idea to investigate point. different technical papers may possibly require a trip to the library.

However, because the genetic operators have a random element, we cannot say exactly what the next population will be. What we can say, however, is that there will be a probability distribution over the set of possible populations defined by the genetic operators. We can calculate this, together with the expected next population. Thi s will then enable us to study the expected long-term behaviour of the population. It turn s out that as the popul ation size r tends to infinity, so the prob ability that the next popul ation will be the expected one tends to 1.

000000 . 8). And since these neighbouring population s will also have small arrows induced by G then the GA is likely to stay in this area. 44 6 J. E. Rowe Metastable States We have seen that the GA will stay in the vicinity of the infinite population fixedpoint , becau se actual populations have small arrows induced by the operator G. The same argument would apply to any part of the simplex where the force of G is small, even if these areas are nowhere near the fixed-point. Such. areas are called metastable states and are important in understanding the long-term behaviour of a finite population GA.

Apparently, a CSP ----+ FOP transformation is common and a CSP ----+ COP transformation is not popular. Putting it in the terminology we introduced in section 3, this implies that indirect constraint handling is more common practice than direct constraint handling . On the other hand, in almost all applications some heuristics are used even if the transformed problem is an FOP, and these heuristics are meant to increase the chance of satisfying constraints. In other words, constraints are handled directly by these heuristics.
