Features

  • Provides an overview of genetic algorithms, indicating the leap GAs have made from their origins in the laboratory to the practicing engineer's toolbox
  • Examines 18 applications - one per chapter
  • Provides cost-effective examples and solutions
  • Presents succinct, well-illustrated methods
  • Describes real-world applications as well as state-of-the-art techniques for the range of industry problems
  • Summary

    Genetic algorithms (GAs) are computer-based search techniques patterned after the genetic mechanisms of biological organisms that have adapted and flourished in changing, highly competitive environments for millions of years. GAs have been successfully applied to problems in a variety of studies, and their popularity continues to increase because of their effectiveness, applicability, and ease of use.
    Industrial Applications of Genetic Algorithms shows how GAs have made the leap form their origins in the laboratory to the practicing engineer's toolbox. Each chapter in the book describes a project completed by a graduate student at the University of Alabama.
