Th is chapter describes clonal selection algorithms and artiﬁ cial immune networks (AINs), which are mainly inspired by B cells’ response to antigens. First, the main features of clonal selection algorithms and their similarities to evolutionary approaches are presented. Th en, continuous and discrete immune network (IN) models are discussed. Finally, diﬀ erent versions of IN model are described brieﬂ y.
5.1 Clonal Selection Algorithms Clonal selection algorithms are developed based on the clonal selection theory (Burnet, 1959) proposed nearly 50 years ago. Th e main immunological elements used are
