What are Evolutionary Algorithms/Methods?

Since genetic algorithms were introduced in the 50's as a research area attempting to apply the mannerisms of natural systems to artificial, numerous branches of research "evolved". This entire research group has been labeled as "Evolutionary Algorithms".

Evolutionary algorithm is an umbrella term used to describe computer-based problem solving systems which use "natural" computational models where evolution is the key element in design and implementation. A variety of evolutionary methods have been proposed. The major ones are:

They all share a common base of simulating the evolution of individual structures via processes of selection, mutation, and reproduction. Details
