Synopsis: Differential evolution is a very simple but very powerful stochastic optimizer. Since its inception, it has proved very efficient and robust in function optimization and has been applied to solve problems in many scientific and engineering fields. In Differential Evolution , Dr. Qing begins with an overview of optimization, followed by a state-of-the-art review of differential evolution, including its fundamentals and up-to-date advances. He goes on to explore the relationship between differential evolution strategies, intrinsic control parameters, non-intrinsic control parameters, and problem features through a parametric study. Findings and recommendations on the selection of strategies and intrinsic control parameter values are presented. Lastly, after an introductory review of reported applications in electrical and electronic engineering fields, different research groups demonstrate how the methods can be applied to such areas as: multicast routing, multisite mapping in grid environments, antenna arrays, analog electric circuit sizing, electricity markets, stochastic tracking in video sequences, and color quantization.

  • Contains a systematic and comprehensive overview of differential evolution
  • Reviews the latest differential evolution research
  • Describes a comprehensive parametric study conducted over a large test bed
  • Shows how methods can be practically applied to
    • mobile communications
    • grid computing
    • circuits
    • image processing
    • power engineering
  • Sample applications demonstrated by research groups in the United Kingdom, Australia, Italy, Turkey, China, and Eastern Europe
  • Provides access to companion website with code examples for download

Differential Evolution is ideal for application engineers, who can use the methods described to solve specific engineering problems. It is also a valuable reference for post-graduates and researchers working in evolutionary computation, design optimization and artificial intelligence. Researchers in the optimization field or engineers and managers involved in operations research will also find the book a helpful introduction to the topic.

About the Author: Anyong Qing is a Research Scientist with Temasek Laboratories at the National University of Singapore. He has been involved in various areas of research in electromagnetics and evolutionary computation, producing pioneering work in solving electromagnetic problems using evolutionary algorithms. Qing has authored 4 book chapters, 49 peer reviewed journal papers, and 37 conference presentations, and altogether has been cited by other researchers over 150 times. He was invited to contribute a review on electromagnetic inverse problems for the Wiley Encyclopedia of RF and Microwave Engineering. He is also an invited speaker for EuMW, IST, PIERS, etc. Qing received a Guest Professorship at Southwest Jiaotong University and was elected as a senior member of the IEEE in 2005. Qing holds a B.E from Tsinghua University and a PhD from Southwest Jiaotong.
