      This book is a collection of research on the areas of meta-heuristics optimization algorithms in engineering, business, economics, and finance and aims to be a comprehensive reference for decision makers, managers, engineers, researchers, scientists, financiers, and Brand: IGI Global. Nearly two months ago, someone recommended me this book on my blog, so I decided to read level of details and the language the author uses to present all aspects of meta-heuristics as well as the number of real live examples makes this book a great position for everyone interested in meta-heuristics/5.

    This book is dedicated to metaheuristics as applied to vehicle routing problems. Several implementations are given as illustrative examples, along with applications to several typical vehicle routing problems. Classical meta-heuristics: † Simulated annealing † Tabu search † Genetic algorithms † Ant colonies Difierent rules for choice and/or acceptance of neighbor solution All (except Tabu search) accept uphill moves (in order to escape local minima) Optimization heuristics 14File Size: 1MB.

    Quantum Inspired Meta-heuristics for Image Analysis begins with a brief summary on image segmentation, quantum computing, and optimization. It also highlights a few relevant applications of the quantum based computing algorithms, meta-heuristics approach, and several thresholding algorithms in .   Simple answer: when deterministic methods don’t work well. First, the bad: Metaheuristic methods (particle swarm, genetic algorithms, etc.) are rarely more efficient than gradient based methods when an explicit equation based model exists. These m.

From the Publisher: A meta-heuristic is an iterative master process that guides and modifies the operations of subordinate heuristics to efficiently produce high-quality solutions, and recently, there have been significant advances in the theory and application of meta-heuristics to the approximate solutions of hard optimization problems.

As Touki said, a specific implementation of a meta-heuristic (as opposed to the abstract implementation found in a book) is also a meta-heuristic, even if you have to make decisions related to representation, cost functions, etc., which are often problem-dependent.

This book aims at attracting the interest of researchers and practitioners around the applicability of meta-heuristic algorithms to practical scenarios arising from different knowledge disciplines. Emphasis is placed on evolutionary algorithms and swarm intelligence as computational means to efficiently balance the tradeoff between optimality of the produced solutions and the complexity Author: Javier Del Ser Lorente.

Introduces quantum inspired techniques for image analysis for pure and true gray scale/color images in a single/multi-objective environment This book will entice readers to design efficient meta-heuristics for image analysis in the quantum domain.

It introduces them to the essence of quantum computing paradigm, its features, and properties, and elaborates on the fundamentals of different meta. A meta-heuristic is an elevated stage procedure for heuristics.

It has been designed to analyze, produce or opt for a comparatively lower stage of heuristics to generate the preeminent probable elucidation, especially with partial or inadequate data availability or restricted computation capacity. Meta-heuristics, on the other hand, are problem-independent techniques.

As such, they do not take advantage of any specificity of the problem and, therefore, can be used as black boxes.Meta-Heuristics: Advances and Trends in Local Search Paradigms for Optimization and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at "Heuristic device" is used when an entity X exists to enable understanding of, or knowledge concerning, some other entity Y.

A good example is a model that, as it is never identical with what it models, is a heuristic device to enable understanding of what it models.

Stories, metaphors, etc., can also be termed heuristic in that sense.
