Nature-Inspired Computing: Swarm-Intelligence Based Algorithms
Siddique, Nazmul H., Adeli, Hojjat
There is information processing in nature performed in a distributed, self-organized and optimal manner without any central or external control. Scientists have been observing these phenomena in nature for many years and trying to understand, explain, adapt and replicate in artificial systems. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to nature-inspired computing with an emphasis on applications to real-life engineering problems. It focuses on swarm-intelligence along with key algorithms such as ant algorithms, bat algorithms and firefly algorithms.
