Evolution and complexity characterize both biological and artificial life - by direct modeling of biological processes and the creation of populations of interacting entities from which complex behaviors can emerge and evolve.

This edited book includes invited chapters from leading scientists in the fields of artificial life, complex systems, and evolutionary computing. The contributions identify both fundamental theoretical issues and state-of-the-art real-world applications.

The book is intended for researchers and graduate students in the related domains.
