Christian Jacob, 2001, Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, 578 pp., hardbound.

Illustrating Evolutionary Computation with Mathematica introduces evolutionary computation and explores the application of evolution to developmental processes in nature. The text introduces major mechanisms of biological evolution and explains genetic algorithms, genetic programming, evolutionary programming, and evolutionary strategies. Included are a detailed explanation of computer-modeled developmental programs and Mathematica notebooks for all programs in the book. 

Chapters include: The Fascination of Evolution; Evolutionary Algorithms for Optimization; Genetic Algorithms; Evolution Strategies; Programming by Evolution; Evolutionary Programming; Genetic Programming; Advanced Genetic Programming at Work; Computer Models of Developmental Programs; Evolutionary Inference of Lindenmayer Systems; and Artificial Plant Evolution.

This book is available from the Wolfram Worldwide Web Store.
