comment what is it called when encrypt('a') + encrypt('a') == encrypt('aa')?
They are applied in general too. It is called "Partially Homomorphic Encryption" to be precise !

comment Can we quantify strength of encryption scheme ?
@JohnMeacham that would be too subjective, who qualifies to be schneier ? how would you experimentally verify such units ?

comment Using machine-learning techniques for data-dependent operations in ciphers
there are plenty , just search for "cryptanalysis genetic algorithms" on scholar.google.com

Yes There are few papers using genetic algorithms but i would be very curious to know others

comment What is the most computationally efficient way of generating pseudo-random permutations?
If security is not a major concern , vanilla feistel network with AES-NI as PRF , with 6 rounds would be good enough thank FFX modes
