An important aspect in nowadays industries is to obtain end products that are optimal with respect to several criteria. The aesthetic criterion is an essential one and it has been studied since Antiquity by several artists and scientists. In this paper we propose two aesthetic optimization models of a basic shape using evolutionary algorithms. The objective functions are formulated using the Golden Ratio as an aesthetic standard.

Key words: aesthetic standards, mathematical mean, Golden Ratio, optimization, evolutionary algorithms.
