Previous Work

In this section, a review is presented of some previous artificial life studies. This is not a comprehensive review of the whole field, but focuses on work related to the central topics of this thesis, such as self-reproduction, open-ended evolution and self-maintenance. Coverage of some of the more important contributions to the field that are not discussed here can be found in [Fogel 98].
