H02D1A
Genetic Algorithms and Evolutionary Computing
1st semester ; 4 ECTS points
Aims
t to describe genetic algorithms and other evolutionary
strategies for search and optimisation
t to analyse their performance (quality of results, cost)
t to discuss some implementation issues
t to illustrate the methods by solving some model problems
(e.g. traveling salesman problem)
t to present some case studies
(e.g. concept learning, timetabling, ‘artificial life’)
t the student will be able to decide whether these methods are
suited to solve a particular search or optimisation problem,
and how to choose appropriate genetic operators
