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 evolution can extend the capabilities of evolutionary computation. An accompanying CD-ROM offers readers hands-on activities that include evolved images, animations, and source code related to the text.
