Why Optimization Techniques?

Optimization is the art of selecting "the best" alternative among a given set of options. Optimization problems arise in almost all areas like science, engineering, finance and Industry - in fact, in all walks of human activity in where the problem may be mathematically modeled. The traditional optimization techniques are unable to tackle the complexities of real world optimization problems. Recently, a number of nature inspired optimization techniques (NIOT) are being developed. They are gaining popularity and are considered efficient due to their ability to find a reasonably acceptable solution within a fair amount of computational time. Some of the methods in this category are: Genetic Algorithms, Particle Swarm Optimization, Ant Colony Optimization, Differential Evolution, Spider Monkey Optimization, Fire Fly Algorithm, etc. These techniques are finding applications in numerous real life applications in Science, Engineering, Finance and Business.
