The emerging technologies in control include fuzzy logic, intelligent control, neural networks and hardware developments like micro-electro-mechanical systems and autonomous vehicles. This volume describes the biological background, basic construction and application of the emerging technology of Genetic Algorithms. Dr Kim Man and his colleagues have written a book which is both a primer introducing the basic concepts and a research text which describes some of the more advanced applications of the genetic algorithmic method. The applications described are especially useful since they indicate the power of the GA method in solving a wide range of problems. These sections are also instructive in showing how the mechanics of the GA solutions are obtained thereby acting as a template for similar types of problems. The volume is a very welcome contribution to the Advances in Industrial Control Series
