Evolutionary Optimization, Hardback Book


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.
