Evolutionary Algorithms

Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 91)


Our general purpose evolutionary algorithm is described in the next section. We have not included a disk containing our evolutionary algorithm in this book since you can download your own software (genetic, evolutionary) from the internet. Use the term “genetic algorithm”, or “evolutionary algorithm” in your search engine to locate their web pages and then you can solve your own fuzzy optimization problems.
