Though I can be totally wrong, I believe Francesco is talking about answer(s) to his question about genetic algorithm posted in the thread titled "How to find the Max of a Piecewise function" [*]. Here is a copy of my reply [**]: (* About Resources on Genetic Algorithm with Mathematica. *) Excellent resources I am aware of, at the introductory level, are: .

[2] The companion website for Christian Jacob's book, *Illustrating Evolutionary Computation with Mathematica*, website that contains numerous Mathematica notebooks. http://pages.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/~jacob/IEC/IEC%20Main%20Page/IEC%20Main... .

The first three examples are implemented as Mathematica notebooks.You will find a detailed description of these exercises in the pdf files linked below. Some basics on the Mathematica interface are given in the pdf file describing the first exercise."
