Genetic algorithms in electromagnetics.


Genetic algorithms in electromagnetics.

Haupt, Randy L. and Douglas H. Werner.



301 pages




For readers who have already learned how to formulate the objective function to solve particular problems in electromechanics, Haupt and Werner (electrical engineering, both Pennsylvania State U.) explain methods for optimizing the objective function--the computer algorithm, analytical model, or experimental result that describes the performance of an electromagnetic system. As they main tool, they introduce genetic algorithms, which they say have proved to be tenacious in finding optimal results when tradition approaches fail. MATLAB code is appended for kids brave enough to try it at home.
