    Swarm intelligence is one of the fastest growing subfields of artificial intelligence and soft computing. This field includes multiple optimization algorithms to solve NP-hard problems for which conventional methods are not effective. It inspires researchers in engineering sciences to learn theories from nature and incorporate them.

    Swarm Intelligence: Foundation, Principles, and Engineering Applications provides a comprehensive review of new swarm intelligence techniques and offers practical implementation of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) with MATLAB code. The book discusses the statistical analysis of swarm optimization techniques so that researchers can analyse their experiment design. It also includes algorithms in social sectors, oil and gas industries, and recent research findings of new optimization algorithms in the field of engineering describing the implementation in machine learning.

    This book is written for students of engineering, research scientists, and academicians involved in the engineering sciences.

    1. Swarm Intelligence: Review, Perspective and Challenges. 2. Theory to Practice in PSO. 3. Survey on New Swarm Intelligence Algorithms. 4. Engineering Applications of Swarm Intelligence. 5. Swarm Intelligence Applications in Machine Learning.
