Book Description

This book presents the fundamentals of swarm intelligence, from classic algorithms to emerging techniques. It presents comprehensive theoretical foundations and examples using the main Computational Intelligence methods in programming languages ​​such as Python, Java and MATLAB®. Real-world applications are also presented in areas as diverse as Medicine, Biology and industrial applications.

The book is organized into two parts. The first part provides an introduction to swarming algorithms and hybrid techniques. In the second part, real world applications of swarm intelligence are presented to illustrate how swarm algorithms can be used in applications of optimization and pattern recognition, reviewing the principal methods and methodologies in swarm intelligence.
