Organisms are one of the most wonderful systems in the world. Like the method of the last chapter, we introduce here another powerful problem solving technique inspired from biology. Genetic algorithm, just like simulated annealing, is suitable to both combinatorial and numerical optimizations. They find wide applications in different research fields, such as management, engineering, industrial design, and so forth.
