About this book

Our everyday lives are practically unthinkable without optimization. We constantly try to minimize our effort and to maximize the reward or progress achieved. Many real-world and industrial problems arising in engineering, economics, medicine and other domains can be formulated as optimization tasks. This volume presents a comprehensive collection of extended contributions from the 2017 Workshop on Computational Optimization.

Presenting recent advances in computational optimization, it addresses important concrete applications, e.g. the modeling of physical processes, wildfire modeling, modeling processes in chemical engineering, workforce planning, wireless access network topology, parameter settings for controlling various processes, berth allocation, identification of homogeneous domains, and quantum computing. The book shows how to develop algorithms for them based on new intelligent methods like evolutionary computations, ant colony optimization, constrain programming and others.
