Evolutionary Algorithms in Engineering ApplicationsDipankar Dasgupta, Zbigniew Michalewicz, Editors. Springer-Verlag, March 1997. ISBN: 3-540-62021-4
This book is concerned with applications of Evolutionary Algorithms and associated strategies in the domain of engineering. Evolutionary Algorithms are general-purpose search procedures based on the mechanisms of natural selection and population genetics. These algorithms are appealing because of their simplicity, adaptability, and easy to interface. Unlike other books in the field, this book aims at a systematic treatment of the important applications of evolutionary systems to a diverse field of engineering.
The book consists of five parts (total 554 pages) and each part contains 6 to 8 chapters. The topics are chosen to emphasize important application areas in various fields of engineering (see the table of content)
Table of Contents
- Architectural and Civil Engineering
