The first notable feature of this book is itsinnovation : Computational intelligence (CI), a fast evolving area, is currently attracting lots of researchers' attention in dealing with many complex problems. At present, there are quite a lot competing books existing in the market. Nevertheless, the present book is markedly different from the existing books in that it presentsnew paradigms of CI that have rarely mentioned before, as opposed to the traditional CI techniques or methodologies employed in other books. During the past decade, a number of new CI algorithms are proposed. Unfortunately, they spread in a number of unrelated publishing directions which may hamper the use of such published resources. These provide us with motivation to analyze the existing research for categorizing and synthesizing it in a meaningful manner. The mission of this book is really important since those algorithms are going to be a new revolution in computer science. We hope it will stimulate the readers to make novel contributions or even start a new paradigm based on nature phenomena. Although structured as a textbook, the book's straightforward, self-contained style will also appeal to a wide audience of professionals, researchers and independent learners. We believe that the book will be instrumental in initiating an integrated approach to complex problems by allowing cross-fertilization of design principles from different design philosophies.

The second feature of this book is itscomprehensiveness : Through an extensive literature research, there are 134 innovative CI algorithms covered in this book.

Editorial Reviews

From the book reviews:

"This book tries to summarize 134 'clever' algorithms that are inspired by scientific processes found in nature. . This book is unique both for its breadth of algorithms as well as its focused attention on computational intelligence. It is a necessary text for anyone interested in exploring the varieties of naturally inspired algorithms." (Minette Carl, Computing Reviews, September, 2014)
