About this Book

Written in an accessible and easy-to-read style, this
cutting-edge book presents advanced solutions to current
and future telecommunications optimization problems. The
field of telecommunications is growing and changing ever
more rapidly, presenting new real-world problems for
optimization researchers to address. Telecommunications
engineers tend to know all about the problems involved but
are often not aware of developments in computer science
and artificial intelligence that might solve those problems.
This unique book takes a colloborative approach describing
the essence of the problems and then the heuristic and
adaptive techniques which are now recognised as adept at
solving these problems. In addition the emerging
technologies in telecommunications and increasing use of
the Internet expand the role that advanced heuristic and
adaptive methods can play.

Topics covered include:

Heuristic techniques covering local search methods
and population-based search techniques
Adaptive computation techniques covering neural
computation, fuzzy logic and game theory
Practical and successful ways to address problems in
network design and planning, routing, protocol
design and network management

This state-of-the-art book will be an essential resource for
optimization researchers needing a wider appreciation of
the problems in telecommunications, and indispensable for
telecommunications engineers using heuristic and adaptive
techniques.
