A general convergence theorem about (μ,λ)-Evolutionary Strategies is purposed and two useful applications are presented. For a continuous fitness function with global maximal set B, we investigate probabilities of a neighboring region of B including the population of (μ,λ)-evolutionary Strategies. Consequently, with a recursion for these probabilities, on several weak conditions, it is proved that the probabilities tend to 1.
