Description & Coverage
Description:

Modern optimization approaches have attracted many research scientists, decision makers and practicing researchers in recent years as powerful intelligent computational techniques for solving several complex real-world problems.

The Handbook of Research on Modern Optimization Algorithms and Applications in Engineering and Economics highlights the latest research innovations and applications of algorithms designed for optimization applications within the fields of engineering, IT, and economics. Focusing on a variety of methods and systems as well as practical examples, this book is a significant resource for graduate-level students, decision makers, and researchers in both public and private sectors who are seeking research-based methods for modeling uncertain real-world problems.

Coverage:

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

  • Combinatorial Optimization Methods
  • Dynamic Programming Methods
  • Hybrid Systems
  • Linear Programming Methods
  • Mixed-Integer Programming Methods
  • Optimal Control Methods
  • Stochastic Optimal Control Methods
Reviews and Testimonials

This handbook describes optimization algorithms that can be applied in various branches of science, engineering, and economics where uncertainty is a problem. The topics include a supply chain network design using an enhanced hybrid swarm-based optimization algorithm, applying artificial bee colony algorithms to antenna design problems for radio frequency identification applications, and more.
