Metaheuristics for Hard Optimization: Methods and Case Studies

£45.00

Product description

Springer. 2003. Book co-ordinated by Siarry, Patrick. Condition: very good. Slight scratch on the front cover. No inscriptions. Spine and pages still all in excellent conditionl.

"Metaheuristics for Hard Optimization comprises of three parts. The first part is devoted to the detailed presentation of the four most widely known metaheuristics:the simulated annealing method, tabu search, the evolutionary algorithms, and, the ant colony algorithms. Each one of these metaheuristics is actually a family of methods, of which the essential elements are discussed. In the second part, the book presents some other less widespread metaheuristics, and then, extensions of metaheuristics and some ways of research are described. The problem of the choice of a metaheuristic is posed and solution methods are discussed. The last part concentrates on three case studies from telecommunications, air traffic control, and vehicle routing" - blurb
