  abstract =     "This chapter presents an overview of evolutionary
                 algorithms explaining the main algorithms, and showing
                 how all evolutionary algorithms are fundamentally the
                 same. Evolutionary computation is all about search. In
                 computer science and in artificial intelligence, when
                 we use a search algorithm, we define a computational
                 problem in terms of a search space, which can be viewed
                 as a massive collection of potential solutions to the
                 problem. Any position, or point, in the search space
                 defines a particular solution, and the process of
                 search can be viewed as the task of navigating that
                 space. The chapter then defines and describes creative
                 evolutionary systems, explaining why they were
                 developed and how user interaction and changes of
                 representation can expand the capabilities of
                 evolution. The chapter also explores whether a creative
                 evolutionary system can be said to actually work
                 creatively. This chapter provides a mere introduction
                 to the diversity of techniques that fall under the
                 heading of creative evolutionary systems.",
