Special issue of the Soft Computing Journal

Evolutionary Computing & Complex Systems

The large-scale use and applicability of evolutionary computing for
complex real-life systems and applications determined a need for
ensuring solid theoretical grounds, providing sensitivity, resilience
or error propagation analysis results.

The aim of this special issue is to build a bridge between probabilities,
statistics, set oriented numerics and evolutionary computing, as to
identify new common and challenging research aspects useful for
highly complex systems. Out of control stochastic factors, uncertainty
or error propagation, are all potential pathways for hazardous conditions
or catastrophic failures when dealing with complex systems in financial
markets, nuclear plants, surveillance and defense, etc. Similarly, the
handling of large quantities of data may require the use of distributed
environments where the probability of failure and the stability of the
algorithms may need in-depth study. Therefore, algorithms capable
of delivering robust solutions in the presence of erroneous or abnormal
inputs, resilient to failures or with performance guarantees, evolved to
be of crucial importance when applied to such systems.

The special issue will primarily focus on the solutions provided for
highly complex systems by applied and theoretical evolutionary
computation that advance the research in the field. The topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

· performance guarantee factors for large scale / highly multi-modal problems
· performance guarantees measures for existing algorithms
· highly complex systems optimization
· robust methods for large scale, high dimensional problems
· theoretical tools, components that ensure the robustness in practice
· mathematical objects and evolutionary programming
· robust / fast estimation of mathematical quantities
· particle methods, Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods
· spatial complexity of methods and its implications in practice
· robustness of parallel and distributed evolutionary optimization
· self-tuning, self-adaptive techniques
· particular issues (e.g. landscape analysis)
· swarm intelligence
· real-world applications
