Recent New Development in Evolutionary Programming

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsConference paper (refereed)Researchpeer-review


Evolutionary programming (EP) is one of the major branches of evolutionary computation. It has been applied to many learning and optimisation problems with success in recent years. This paper gives an overview of the latest results on evolutionary programming. In particular, the paper will analyse why the recently proposed fast EP performs better than classical EP for most benchmark functions, discuss the scalability of EP, and demonstrate how EP has been used to solve the function optimisation problem and neural network design problem.
