A genetic algorithm is a form of evolution that occurs in a computer. Genetic algorithms are useful, both as search methods for solving problems and for modeling evolutionary systems. This chapter describes how genetic algorithms work, gives several examples of genetic algorithm applications, and reviews some mathematical analysis of genetic algorithm behavior.
