This issue of AIEDAM is the second in a series of three “mini” special issues on Evolutionary Design by computers. The papers continue the theme that began in Vol. 13, No. 3, 1999, of using Evolutionary Computation for design problems. The first paper by Eby, Averill, Punch and Goodman provides an excellent overview of the most recent work at Michigan State University on this subject. They describe their work on the optimization of flywheels by an injection island genetic algorithm, and show the importance of minimizing the computation time devoted to evaluation for such real-world applications.
