The concept of swarm intelligence at first originated from the observation of nature. Through the observation and study of the behaviour of swarms of living creatures as ants colony, bird flocks, bees colony and fish school, inspired by the swarm/social phenomena exhibited by these biological swarms, the swarm of simple individuals through mutual cooperation shows up the emergence phenomena at the level of swarm, that is, "the swarm of simple individuals shows the characteristics of complex intelligent behaviour through cooperation.”
The swarm intelligence algorithms are characterised of simplicity, uncertainty, interactivity, distributed parallelism, robustness, scalability, and self-organization. At present, the study of swarm intelligence algorithms mainly includes theory, algorithm and application. Its development trends include developing hybrid algorithms, new improved algorithms and theoretical analysis as well as solving large-scale problems (big data application). In general, swarm intelligence algorithms may shed a light on breaking the curse of no free lunches (NFLs), which shows that a deep study might give us enough anticipation motivating more and more researchers to engage in the research of swarm intelligence algorithms and their applications.
Thousands of papers are published each year presenting new algorithms, new improvements and numerous real world applications. This makes it hard for researchers and students to share their ideas with other colleagues; follow up the works from other researchers with common interests; and to follow new developments and innovative approaches. This complete and timely collection fills this gap by presenting the latest research systematically and thoroughly to provide readers with a full view of the field of swarm. Students will learn the principles and theories of typical swarm intelligence algorithms; scholars will get inspired with promising research directions; and practitioners will find suitable methods for their applications of interest along with useful instructions.
Swarm Intelligence Volume 3: Applications includes 27 chapters and presents a great number of real-world applications of swarm intelligence algorithms and related evolutionary algorithms.The companion volume I covers principles of swarm intelligence and volume II covers new algorithms and innovative methods of swarm intelligence.
