Swarm Intelligence: Focus on Ant and Particle Swarm Optimization
by Felix T.S. Chan, Manoj K. Tiwari
Publisher: InTech 2007
Number of pages: 532
Motivated by the capability of the biologically inspired algorithms, the present book aims to present recent developments and applications concerning optimization with swarm intelligence techniques. In addition to the introduction of new concepts of swarm intelligence, the book also presented some selected representative case studies covering power plant maintenance scheduling; geotechnical engineering; design and machining tolerances; layout problems; manufacturing process plan; job-shop scheduling; structural design; environmental dispatching problems; etc.
