Soft Computing Methods
In this chapter, a brief introduction to different soft computing methods, namely, genetic algorithms, particle swarm optimization, bacterial foraging optimization, neural networks and support vector machine has been presented. The overall presentation is separated into sections like evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence based algorithms, and methods of learning. Among these methods, genetic algorithms and neural networks have been well explored by microwave researchers, however rest of the techniques are still not much investigated. The rest of the book chapters focuses much on the investigation of these relatively new techniques and their modifications to microwave and millimeter-wave design problems.
