Evolutionary Optimization Hardback
Edited by Ruhul Amin Sarker, M. Mohammadian, X. Yao
Part of the International Series in Operations Research & Management Science series
Evolutionary computation techniques have attracted increasing att- tions in recent years for solving complex optimization problems.
They are more robust than traditional methods based on formal logics or mathematical programming for many real world OR/MS problems.
E- lutionary computation techniques can deal with complex optimization problems better than traditional optimization techniques.
However, most papers on the application of evolutionary computation techniques to Operations Research /Management Science (OR/MS) problems have scattered around in different journals and conference proceedings.
They also tend to focus on a very special and narrow topic.
It is the right time that an archival book series publishes a special volume which - cludes critical reviews of the state-of-art of those evolutionary com- tation techniques which have been found particularly useful for OR/MS problems, and a collection of papers which represent the latest devel- ment in tackling various OR/MS problems by evolutionary computation techniques.
This special volume of the book series on Evolutionary - timization aims at filling in this gap in the current literature.
The special volume consists of invited papers written by leading - searchers in the field.
All papers were peer reviewed by at least two recognised reviewers.
The book covers the foundation as well as the practical side of evolutionary optimization.
