Lionel Barnett
Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics (CCNR),University of Sussex


It has come to be almost an article of faith amongst population biologists and GA researchers alike that the principal feature of a fitness landscape as regards evolutionary dynamics is racterised by population drift a long neutral networks punctuated by transitions between networks. The relevance of these models to natural and artificial evolution is discussed."
