Stochastic Global Optimization Methods and Applications to Chemical, Biochemical, Pharmaceutical and Environmental Processes focuses on the evolutionary, stochastic and artificial intelligence optimization algorithms. It gives a special emphasis to their design, analysis and implementation to solve complex optimization problems of different engineering fields. Drs. Satya Eswari and Ch. Venkateswarlu detail several real applications of the algorithms in chemical, biochemical, pharmaceutical, and environmental engineering processes. This book is unequalled in the field in its thorough description of the formulation, design and implementation of various advanced optimization strategies to solve wide variety of real engineering problems.
It presents various algorithms, including the genetic algorithm (GA), simulated annealing (SA), differential evolution (DE), ant colony optimization (ACO), tabu search (TS), artificial neural networks (ANN) and radial basis function networks (RBFN). The design and analysis of these algorithms is then studied by applying them to solve complex optimization problems.
