# Evolutionary Computation in Astronomy and Astrophysics: A Review

@article{Gutirrez2012EvolutionaryCI, title={Evolutionary Computation in Astronomy and Astrophysics: A Review}, author={Jos{\'e} A. Garc{\'i}a Guti{\'e}rrez and Carlos Cotta and Antonio J. Fern{\'a}ndez}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2012}, volume={abs/1202.2523} }

In general Evolutionary Computation (EC) includes a number of optimization methods inspired by biological mechanisms of evolution. The methods catalogued in this area use the Darwinian principles of life evolution to produce algorithms that returns high quality solutions to hard-to-solve optimization problems. The main strength of EC is precisely that they provide good solutions even if the computational resources (e.g., running time) are limited. Astronomy and Astrophysics are two fields that…
