Description & Coverage
Description:

Evolutionary computation brings new tools for software engineering by informing the systematic, disciplined, quantifiable processes of developing, operating, and maintaining software.

Evolutionary Computation and Optimization Algorithms in Software Engineering: Applications and Techniques lays the foundation for the successful integration of evolutionary computation into software engineering. It surveys techniques ranging from genetic algorithms, to swarm optimization theory, to ant colony optimization, demonstrating their uses and capabilities. These techniques are applied to aspects of software engineering such as software testing, quality assessment, reliability assessment, and fault prediction models, among others, to providing researchers, scholars and students with the knowledge needed to expand this burgeoning application.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Ant colony optimization
  • Application of artificial immune systems
  • Application of genetic algorithms
  • Evolutionary computation techniques
  • Fuzzy multi-criteria assessment of software quality
  • Industrial production management
  • Large and complex software projects
  • Object oriented software testing
  • Self organizing multi agents
  • Software fault prediction models
Reviews and Testimonials

This book is valuable and useful to all practitioners and researchers working on different fields in software engineering, evolutionary computation or optimization.
