Evolutionary computation as a general problem-solving technique has been extensively applied in statistical pattern recognition. Typically, evolutionary algorithms are developed to solve complex optimization and search problems involved in different folds of designing a recognition system, e.g. feature extraction, supervised classification and clustering. These problems are often characterized by high-dimensional search spaces with convoluted landscape, noisy data, and little information about the objective functions. Traditional optimization methods are not efficient in dealing with them and evolutionaryalgorithms are therefore introduced.
