This e-book constitutes the completely refereed post-proceedings of the ninth Workshop at the Foundations of Genetic Algorithms, FOGA 2007, held in Mexico urban, Mexico in January 2007.

The eleven revised complete papers provided have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen in the course of rounds of reviewing and development from 22 submissions. The papers deal with all present subject matters within the box of theoretical evolutionary computation together with evolution innovations, evolutionary programming, and genetic programming, and likewise depict the ongoing development in interactions with different fields akin to arithmetic, physics, and biology.

However, it is important to notice that generally the curves have a tendency to increase, thus showing that for this landscape recombination is aiding the evolution in finding optimal BBs or schemata. 6 Conclusions In this paper we have shown how a selecto-recombinative EA can be most naturally understood in terms of Building Blocks that form a basis for the description of the dynamics and which, in distinction to the notion of building block inherent in the BBH and HST, can be given a complete and rigorous mathematical characterization.

For any set X, an m-parent transmission function [14,1,18] over X is an element of the set m+1 X → [0, 1] ∀x1 , . . , xm ∈ X, T : T (x, x1 , . . , xm ) = 1 x∈X 1 Extending the notation introduced above, we denote this set by ΛX m . Following [17], we use conditional probability notation in our denotation of transmission functions. Thus an m-parent transmission function T (x, x1 , . . , xm ) is denoted T (x|x1 , . . , xm ). A transmission function can be used to model the individual-level effect of mutation, which operates on one parent and produces one child, and indeed the individual-level effect of any variation operation which operates on any numbers of parents and produces one child.

Graph of PI (s + r)/PI (s) as a function of time for N = 4, 4 NIAH blocks and one-point crossover not all order-one BBs have the same evolution, BBs associated with loci at the boundary being preferred to those away from the boundary. This is not a direct effect of recombination, as pc does not explicitly enter in the equations for the order-one BBs, but rather an indirect one, in that it enters in the schema fitness of the BBs.
