Swarm Intelligence has recently emerged as a next-generation methodology belonging to the class of evolutionary computing. As a result, scientists have been able to explain and understand real-life processes and practices that previously remained unexplored.

The Handbook of Research on Swarm Intelligence in Engineering presents the latest research being conducted on diverse topics in intelligence technologies such as Swarm Intelligence, Machine Intelligence, Optical Engineering, and Signal Processing with the goal of advancing knowledge and applications in this rapidly evolving field. The enriched interdisciplinary contents of this book will be a subject of interest to the widest forum of faculties, existing research communities, and new research aspirants from a multitude of disciplines and trades.

Topics Covered

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

  • Analysis of Geotechnical Features
  • Bio Inspired Computation
  • Biometric Feature Extraction
  • Droplet Routing in Digital Microfluidic Biochip
  • Economic Dispatch Problems
  • Encryption in Wireless Communication
  • Image Enhancement Techniques
  • Multi Label Data Classification

Reviews and Testimonials

Researchers in computational intelligence report the current status of swarm intelligence and its use in engineering problems at a level accessible to graduate students and researchers. The topics include quantum behaved swarm intelligent techniques for image analysis, swarm-based mean-variance mapping optimization for solving non-convex economic dispatch problems, image enhancement techniques using a particle swarm optimization technique, the particle swarm optimization method for designing a linear tubular switched reluctance generators, and a strategy for deploying uniformly distributed mobile sensor nodes using swarm intelligence.
