The simple genetic algorithm - foundations and theory

From the Publisher: The Simple Genetic Algorithm (SGA) is a classical form of genetic search. Viewing the SGA as a mathematical object, Michael D. Vose provides an introduction to what is known (i.e., proven) about the theory of the SGA. He also makes available algorithms for the computation of mathematical objects related to the SGA.. "Although he describes the SGA in terms of heuristic search, the book is not about search or optimization perse. Rather, the focus is on the SGA as an evolutionary system.
