This book comprises a selection of papers from the EVOLVE 2012 held in Mexico City, Mexico. The aim of the EVOLVE is to build a bridge between probability, set oriented numerics and evolutionary computing, as to identify new common and challenging research aspects.
The conference is also intended to foster a growing interest for
robust and efficient methods with a sound theoretical background.
EVOLVE is intended to unify theory-inspired methods and
cutting-edge techniques ensuring performance guarantee factors. By
gathering researchers with different backgrounds, a unified view
and vocabulary can emerge where the theoretical advancements
may echo in different domains. Summarizing, the EVOLVE focuses on
challenging aspects arising at the passage from theory to new
paradigms and aims to provide a unified view while raising
questions related to reliability, performance guarantees and
modeling. The papers of the EVOLVE 2012 make a contribution to this
