C reative Evolutionary Systems, Peter J. Bentley and David W. Corne, eds. Evolutionary computation uses mechanisms derived from natural evolution to solve problems or generate designs. This book concentrates on evolutionary computation in creative areas such as art, music, and design. It shows how human interaction, new representations, and open-ended(More)
1 Executive summary Education reform is top of the agenda of almost every country in the world. Yet despite massive increases in spending (last year, the world's governments spent $2 trillion on education) and ambitious attempts at reform, the performance of many school systems has barely improved in decades. This is all the more surprising because there(More)

In the framework of a lattice-model study of protein folding, we investigate the interplay between designability, thermodynamic stability, and kinetics. To be ‘‘protein-like,’’ heteropolymers must be thermodynamically stable, stable against mutating the amino-acid sequence, and must be fast folders. We find two criteria which, together, guarantee that a(More)
