Abstract: The traditional optimization technology can be used to solve the simple, continuity, and small-scale problems, and they also have been successfully applied in many areas, such as system control, pattern recognition, and production scheduling. However, they are based on mathematics, and try to pursuit the theoretical accuracy and perfection. As for the traditional optimization technology, their optimization framework not only brings themselves some calculation disadvantages, but also limits their applications. With the development of computer technology, a series of modern intelligent optimization methods, such as genetic algorithm, ant colony algorithm and quantum evolutionary algorithm, have attracted lots of scholars’ attention. These modern intelligent optimization algorithms are inspired by the natural rules or biological mechanisms. Compared with the traditional optimization technology, they can solve discrete, uncertainty, large-scale problems and have better performance when they are applied to solve complicated engineering optimization problems.
In this topic, we will present a methodology for intelligent optimization algorithms design, constructing and their corresponding performance evaluation for the practical applications.
