  1. Progress in Artificial Life

    Randall, Marcus
    4828th ed. - Berlin : Springer, 2007.

    This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third Australian Conference on Artificial Life, ACAL 2007, held in Gold Coast, Australia, in December 2007. The 34 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 70 submissions. Research in Alife covers the main areas of biological behaviour as a metaphor for computational models, computational models that reproduce/duplicate a biological behaviour, and computational models to solve biological problems. Thus, Alife features analyses and understanding of life and nature and helps modeling biological systems or solving biological problems. The papers are organized in topical sections on heuristics, complex systems, evolution, biological systems, and networks.This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third Australian Conference on Artificial Life, ACAL 2007, held in Gold Coast, Australia, in December 2007.

  2. Biologically-inspired optimisation methods : parallel algorithms, systems and applications

    Berlin : Springer, ©2009.

    Humanity has often turned to Nature for inspiration to help it solve its problems. The systems She provides are often based on simple rules and premises, yet are able to adapt to new and complex environments quickly and efficiently. Problems from a range of human endeavours, including, science, engineering and economics, require us to find good quality solutions in exponentially large search spaces, a task that often requires vast amounts computational resources and effort. In this book, the contributing authors solve these problems by modelling aspects of the natural world, from the flocking of birds and fish, the operation of colonies of ants through to chromosome reproduction and beyond. Many of the contributions represent extended studies of work presented at a number of workshops on Biologically-Inspired Optimisation Methods at international conferences on e-Science, Grid Computing, and Evolutionary Computation. A variety of chapters from some of the leading experts in the field present an overview of the state-of-the-art, recent advances in theoretical and practical ideas and techniques, and details of application of these methods to a range of benchmark and real world problems.Includes contributions that represent extended studies of work presented at a number of workshops on Biologically-Inspired Optimisation Methods at international conferences on e-Science, Grid Computing, and Evolutionary Computation.
