    Describes a genetically guided approach to optimizing the hard (J 1) and fuzzy (Jm) c-means functionals used in cluster analysis. Our experiments show that a genetic algorithm (GA) can ameliorate the difficulty of choosing an initialization for the c-means clustering algorithms. Experiments use six data sets, including the Iris data, magnetic resonance, and color images. The ... View full abstract»

    The issue of controlling values of various parameters of an evolutionary algorithm is one of the most important and promising areas of research in evolutionary computation: it has a potential of adjusting the algorithm to the problem while solving the problem. In the paper we: 1) revise the terminology, which is unclear and confusing, thereby providing a classification of such control mechanisms, ... View full abstract»

    When searching for prey, many predator species exhibit a remarkable behavior: after prey capture, the predators promptly engage in “area-restricted search”, probing for consecutive captures nearby. Biologists have been surprised with the efficiency and adaptability of this search strategy to a great number of habitats and prey distributions. We propose to synthesize a similar search st...

    Evolutionary programming (EP) has been applied with success to many numerical and combinatorial optimization problems in recent years. EP has rather slow convergence rates, however, on some function optimization problems. In the paper, a “fast EP” (FEP) is proposed which uses a Cauchy instead of Gaussian mutation as the primary search operator. The relationship between FEP and classica... View full abstract»

    We apply evolutionary algorithms to the approximation of a three-dimensional image of a human face using a triangular mesh. The problem is how to locate a limited number of node points such that the mesh approximates the facial surface as closely as possible. Two evolutionary algorithms are implemented and compared. The first does selection and reproduction in the population of node points in a si... View full abstract»

  • Inductive reasoning and bounded rationality reconsidered

    Complex adaptive systems have historically been studied using simplifications that mandate deterministic interactions between agents or instead treat their interactions only with regard to their statistical expectation. This has led to an anticipation, even in the case of agents employing inductive reasoning in light of limited information, that such systems may have equilibria that can be predict...

Aims & Scope

IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation publishes archival quality original papers in evolutionary computation and related areas including nature-inspired algorithms, population-based methods, and optimization where selection and variation are integral, and hybrid systems where these paradigms are combined. Purely theoretical papers are considered as are application papers that provide general insights into these areas of computation.
