Scalable optimization via probabilistic modeling: From algorithms to applications


The book “Scalable Optimization via Probabilistic Modeling: From Algorithms to Applications” edited by Martin Pelikan, Kumara Sastry, and Erick Cantu-Paz has just been published by Springer.

Estimation of distribution algorithms combine evolutionary computation and machine learning to provide a class of robust and scalable optimization techniques applicable to broad classes of difficult problems. Scalable optimization via Probabilistic Modeling compiles articles by some of the leading experts in academia and industry that range from design and analysis to efficiency enhancement and real-world applications of estimation of distribution algorithms. The book is written for the general audience and should be of interest for optimization researchers and practitioners alike.A sample chapter can be downloaded here and more Information can be found at
