|Book Review: Evolutionary Computation in Practice
Red Cedar Technology staff members Erik Goodman, Ron Averill, and Ranny Sidhu authored a chapter entitled, "Multi-Level Decomposition for Tractability in Structural Design Optimization," in the recently published volume, Evolutionary Computation in Practice
Erik Goodman, CTO of Red Cedar Technology, and Professor of Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan State University, provides the following review of the entire volume:This book is loaded with examples in which computer scientists and engineers
have used evolutionary computation - programs that mimic natural evolution - to
solve real problems. They aren't abstract, mathematically intensive papers, but
accounts of solving important problems, including tips from the authors on how
to avoid common pitfalls, maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of the
search process, and many other practical suggestions. Some of the authors have
already won "Humies"- Human Competitive Results Awards - for the work
described in this book. I highly recommend it as a concentrated source
of good problem-solving approaches that are applicable to many real-world
problems.Additional Publication Information
