Theme and Scope
Network optimization is basically a fundamental issue in various fields, including applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, management, and operations research. Network models provide a useful way for modeling various real world problems and are extensively used in many different types of systems: communications, mechanical, electronic, manufacturing and logistics. However, many practical applications impose on more complex issues, such as complex structure, complex constraints, and multiple objectives to be handled simultaneously and make the problem intractable to the traditional approaches
Recent advances in evolutionary algorithms (EAs) focus on how to solve such practical network optimization problems. EAs are stochastic algorithms whose search strategies model the natural evolutionary phenomena; genetic inheritance and Darwinian strife for survival. Usually it is necessary to design a problem-oriented algorithm for the different types of network optimization problems according to the characteristics of the problem to be treated. Therefore, how to design efficient algorithms suitable for complex nature of network optimization problems is the major focus. Generally, EAs involve following meta heuristic optimization algorithms, such as genetic algorithm (GA), evolutionary programming (EP), evolution strategy (ES), genetic programming (GP), learning classifier systems (LCS), and swarm intelligence (comprising ant colony optimization: ACO and particle swarm optimization: PSO). Beside these, nowadays several new algorithms have also developed like Bacteria foraging optimization (BFO), Ant lion optimization (ALO) etc
