Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on 13 Jan. 2000
An excellent introduction to the subject, even if your maths is a bit rusty. The book takes an engineering approach and seems to be designed to get you quickly to the point where you can solve your own problems. This makes the examples a bit narrow though. Supplying code in C, PASCAL, FORTRAN and BASIC was a nice touch.

Straightforward, no messing, to-the-point book on Genetic Algorithms that enabled me to write one over the weekend. A near perfect example of how a book like this should be.

HASH(0x90b3b9e4) out of 5 stars Get started with GAs fast 30 Nov. 1999
By Mr. T. A. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
The best introduction to GAs for those wishing to get up and running and using such algorithms to solve real problems. The software provided seems to work well and just about anyone will understand the book. My only complaint is that the examples could have covered a better range of topics.

HASH(0x90b3bdec) out of 5 stars Too little information, even for beginners 10 Jun. 2004
By Emre Celebi - Published on Amazon.com
This is an introductory (undergraduate level) book targeted towards practitioners. The content is far from being satisfactory, even for beginners. However, if you have only a couple of hours and you want to get some information about GAs, this book is for you. If you're looking for comprehensive coverage on the topic, I'd recommend Eiben & Smith's "Introduction to Evolutionary Computing".

HASH(0x90b21720) out of 5 stars An honest book 7 Dec. 2004
By Wagner F. Sacco - Published on Amazon.com
A fine introduction. Well written, very, very clear... And the codes are pretty easy to understand even for beginners. I would recommend it as a first course on GAs.

HASH(0x90b3be64) out of 5 stars Excellent practical introduction to GAs 10 April 2005
By Simon Hyland - Published on Amazon.com
Well rounded and importantly, practical introduction to the subject. Gives a rapid basic understanding of the elements required, and provides all the information needed for further reading to expand knowledge in timely and appropriate places in the text.
