This e-book constitutes the refereed complaints for the 4th ecu convention on Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Optimization, EvoCOP 2004, held in Coimbra, Portugal, in April including EuroGP 2004 and 6 workshops on evolutionary computing.

The 23 revised complete papers awarded have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from 86 submissions. one of the issues addressed are evolutionary algorithms in addition to metaheuristics like memetic algorithms, ant colony optimization, and scatter seek; the papers are facing representations, operators, seek areas, edition, comparability of algorithms, hybridization of alternative tools, and conception. one of the combinatorial optimization difficulties studied are graph coloring, community layout, slicing, packing, scheduling, timetabling, touring salesman, motor vehicle routing, and numerous different real-world functions.

23 Problems in Systems Neuroscience (Computational Neuroscience Series)

The complexity of the mind and the protean nature of habit stay the main elusive zone of technological know-how, but additionally an important. van Hemmen and Sejnowski invited 23 specialists from the various areas--from evolution to qualia--of platforms neuroscience to formulate one challenge each one. even though every one bankruptcy used to be written independently and will be learn individually, jointly they supply an invaluable roadmap to the sphere of platforms neuroscience and should function a resource of inspirations for destiny explorers of the mind.

Milestones in Matrix Computation: The selected works of Gene H. Golub with commentaries (Oxford Science Publications)

The textual content offers and discusses the most influential papers in Matrix Computation authored via Gene H. Golub, one of many founding fathers of the sphere. the gathering of 21 papers in divided into 5 major parts: iterative equipment for linear structures, answer of least squares difficulties, matrix factorizations and purposes, orthogonal polynomials and quadrature, and eigenvalue difficulties an commentaries for every zone are supplied through best specialists: Anne Greenbaum, Ake Bjorkc, Nicholas Higham, Walter Gautschi, and G.
