Metaheuristics: from design to implementation by El-Ghazali Talbi

By El-Ghazali Talbi

A unified view of metaheuristics

This publication offers a whole heritage on metaheuristics and exhibits readers the best way to layout and enforce effective algorithms to unravel advanced optimization difficulties throughout a various variety of purposes, from networking and bioinformatics to engineering layout, routing, and scheduling. It offers the most layout questions for all households of metaheuristics and obviously illustrates the right way to enforce the algorithms lower than a software program framework to reuse either the layout and code.

in the course of the e-book, the foremost seek elements of metaheuristics are regarded as a toolbox for:

  • Designing effective metaheuristics (e.g. neighborhood seek, tabu seek, simulated annealing, evolutionary algorithms, particle swarm optimization, scatter seek, ant colonies, bee colonies, synthetic immune structures) for optimization difficulties
  • Designing effective metaheuristics for multi-objective optimization difficulties

  • Designing hybrid, parallel, and dispensed metaheuristics

  • imposing metaheuristics on sequential and parallel machines

utilizing many case reviews and treating layout and implementation independently, this e-book supplies readers the abilities essential to resolve large-scale optimization difficulties fast and successfully. it's a precious reference for training engineers and researchers from varied components facing optimization or computing device studying; and graduate scholars in machine technology, operations examine, keep an eye on, engineering, enterprise and administration, and utilized arithmetic.
