Metaheuristics exhibit desirable properties like simplicity, easy parallelizability and ready applicability to different types of optimization problems such as real parameter optimization, combinatorial optimization and mixed integer optimization. They are thus beginning to play a key role in different industrially important process engineering applications, among them the synthesis of heat and mass exchange equipment, synthesis of distillation columns and static and dynamic optimization of chemical and bioreactors.

This book explains cutting-edge research techniques in related computational intelligence domains and their applications in real-world process engineering. It will be of interest to industrial practitioners and research academics.

Jayaraman Valadi worked in the Chemical Engineering division of the National Chemical Laboratory, Pune, India, retiring as a Deputy Director in 2009. He then joined the Evolutionary Computing and Image Processing Group at the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), University of Pune, first in the role of an Emeritus Scien...
