Talk Abstract
What are Genetic Algorithms? A mathematical perspective

Michael D. Vose, University of Tennessee

This talk presents a ``big picture" view of genetic search in an formal, abstract setting. It limits consideration to describe time invariant, Markovian GAs (the next generation depends only upon the current population) with the aim of uncovering, in general terms, their inherent emergent behavior.
