This is the first self-contained book that covers the topic of Evolving Intelligent Systems in its entirety, from a systematic methodology to case studies and real industrial applications. There is a clear demand for a treatment of this topic in advanced process industries, defense, and Internet and communication (VoIP) applications for intelligent yet adaptive/evolving systems. The book targets researchers, engineers, postgraduate students, and practitioners in advanced process industries, applied mathematicians, software developers of agent-oriented systems, and developers of embedded and real-time systems.
