Evolutionary algorithms, such as evolution strategies, genetic algorithms, or evolutionary programming, have found broad acceptance in the last ten years. In contrast to its broad propagation, theoretical analysis in this subject has not progressed as much. This monograph provides the framework and the first steps toward the theoretical analysis of Evolution Strategies (ES). The main emphasis is deriving a qualitative understanding of why and how these ES algorithms work.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"He gives an extensive mathematical treatment of idealised models of behaviour for several types of EA . . The detail is extensive enough to guide and educate graduate students . . The figures are clear and convincing. Part of the quality of the book is its aesthetically pleasing layout, for both figures and mathematics. . The book is a desirable resource for all those, students and others, who need or wish to have a single portable source for the mathematically-based fundamentals of the subject." (John Campbell, Expert Update, Vol. 6 (1), 2003)"Evolutionary algorithms (EA) have found a broad acceptance as robust optimization algorithms in the last ten years. . The aim of this monograph is to provide a theoretical framework for the ES research field. . The book contains references to open problems, to new problem formulations, and to future research directions at the relevant places." (Horst Hollatz, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 969, 2001)
