The last two chapters introduced the standard GA, presented an example case study and explored some of the potential pitfalls in using evolutionary methods. This chapter focuses on a number of extensions and variations of the standard GA. While there is not room to cover them all, many extensions to GAs have been proposed usually in response to situations in which the simple GA does not perform particularly well.
