operations. Th e methods covered are introduced
in a practice-oriented way that allows the reader to
easily apply them for the determination of decision
algorithms in computer control and management
systems. Th is concise textbook is aimed at students
of automatics, robotics, control engineering, and
computer sciences.

Representations for Genetic and Evolutionary Algorithms
F. Rothlauf
, University of Mannheim, Germany
Th is book breaks with this tradition and provides
a comprehensive overview on the infl uence of
problem representations on GEA performance. Th e
book summarizes existing knowledge regarding
problem representations and describes how basic
properties of representations, such as redundancy,
scaling, or locality, infl uence the performance of
GEAs and other heuristic optimization methods.
Using the developed theory, representations can be
analyzed and designed in a theory-guided matter.
Th e theoretical concepts are used for solving integer
optimization problems and network design problems
more effi ciently. Th is second edition extends the
analysis of the basic properties of representations
and introduces a new chapter on the analysis of
direct representations.

Spatially Structured Evolutionary Algorithms
Artifi cial Evolution in Space and Time
M. Tomassini
, University of Lausanne, Switzerland
Evolutionary algorithms (EAs) is now a mature
problem-solving family of heuristics that has found
its way into many important real-life problems
and into leading-edge scientifi c research. Spatially
structured EAs have diff erent properties than
standard, mixing EAs. By virtue of the structured
disposition of the population members they bring
about new dynamical features that can be harnessed
to solve diffi cult problems faster and more effi ciently.
Th is book describes the state of the art in spatially
structured EAs by using graph concepts as a
unifying theme. Th e models, their analysis, and their
empirical behavior are presented in detail. Moreover,
there is new material on non-standard networked
population structures such as small-world networks.

Data Mining with Computational Intelligence
L. Wang
, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore;
X. Fu
, Institute of High Performance Computing, Singapore
Finding information hidden in data is as theoretically
diffi cult as it is practically important. With the
objective of discovering unknown patterns from
data, the methodologies of data mining were derived
from statistics, machine learning, and artifi cial
intelligence, and are being used successfully in
application areas such as bioinformatics, banking,
retail, and many others.
Th e book is targeted at researchers in both academia
and industry, while graduate students and developers
of data mining systems will also profi t from the
detailed algorithmic descriptions.

Experimental Research in Evolutionary Computation
The New Experimentalism
T. Bartz-Beielstein
Th is book introduces the new experimentalism
in evolutionary computation, providing tools to
understand algorithms and programs and their
interaction with optimization problems. Th e
book develops and applies statistical techniques
to analyze and compare modern search heuristics
such as evolutionary algorithms and particle
swarm optimization. Treating optimization runs
as experiments, the author off ers methods for
solving complex real-world problems that involve
optimization via simulation, and he describes
successful applications in engineering and industrial
control projects.
Th e book bridges the gap between theory
and experiment by providing a self-contained
experimental methodology and many examples, so
it is suitable for practitioners and researchers and
also for lecturers and students. It will be supported
online with downloads and exercises.

In a detailed introduction, the authors explain
computer trading on fi nancial markets and the
diffi culties faced in fi nancial market modelling.
Th en Part I provides a thorough guide to the various
bioinspired methodologies – neural networks,
evolutionary computing (particularly genetic
algorithms and grammatical evolution), particle swarm
and ant colony optimization, and immune systems. Part
II brings the reader through the development of market
trading systems. Finally, Part III examines real-world
case studies where BIA methodologies are employed
to construct trading systems in equity and foreign
exchange markets, and for the prediction of corporate
bond ratings and corporate failures.
