  abstract =     "Evolutionary computation has started to receive
                 significant attention during the last decade, although
                 the origins can be traced back to the late 1950's. This
                 article surveys the history as well as the current
                 state of this rapidly growing field. We describe the
                 purpose, the general structure, and the working
                 principles of different approaches, including genetic
                 algorithms (GA) (with links to genetic programming (GP)
                 and classifier systems (CS)), evolution strategies
                 (ES), and evolutionary programming (EP) by analysis and
                 comparison of their most important constituents (i.e.
                 representations, variation operators, reproduction, and
                 selection mechanism). Finally, we give a brief overview
                 on the manifold of application domains, although this
                 necessarily must remain incomplete",
