Foundations of Genetic Algorithms, Volume 7 (FOGA-7) is a collection of 22 papers written by the field's leading researchers, representing the most current, state-of-the-art research both in GAs and in evolutionary computation theory in general. Much more than proceedings, this clothbound book and its companion six volumes document the bi-annual FOGA workshops since their inception in 1990. Before publication, each paper is peer reviewed, revised, and edited. Covering the variety of analysis tools and techniques that characterize the behavior of evolutionary algorithms, the FOGA series, with its brand-new volume 7, provides the single best source of reference for the theoretical work in this field.
