Catégorie : Ouvrages
Written for: Engineers, researchers and graduate students in chemical process engineering and fields related to metaheuristics. Keywords: Chemical process engineering - Metaheuristics - Optimization - Computational intelligence - Evolutionary algorithms.
Metaheuristics exhibit desirable properties like simplicity, easy parallelizability, and ready applicability to different types of optimization problems, such as real parameter optimization, combinatorial optimization, and mixed integer optimization. They are thus beginning to play a key role in different industrially important process engineering applications, among them the synthesis of heat and mass exchange equipment, synthesis of distillation columns, and static and dynamic optimization of chemical reactors and bioreactors. This book discusses cutting-edge research techniques in related computational intelligence domains and their applications in real-world process engineering. It will be of interest to industrial practitioners and research academics.
