This book covers the basic theory, practical details and advanced research of the implementation of evolutionary methods on physical substrates. Most of the examples are from electronic engineering applications, including transistor-level design and system-level implementation. The authors present an overview of the successes achieved, and the book will act as a point of reference for both academic and industrial researchers.
Dr. Martin A. Trefzer received his PhD from the University of Heidelberg where he worked on the evolution of transistor circuits. He is an Anniversary Research Lecturer at the Dept. of Electronics at the University of York working on using bio-inspired techniques to create scalable, fault-tolerant, adaptive and autonomous digital syste...
