In this first chapter an introduction to Evolutionary Algorithms will be given. The introduction is focused on optimization. The basic components of the most used Evolutionary Algorithms —Genetic Algorithms, Evolution Strategies and Evolutionary Programming— are explained in detail. We give pointers to the literature on their theoretical foundations.
