A metaheuristic is a higher-level procedure designed to select a partial search algorithm that may lead to a good solution to an optimization problem, especially with incomplete or imperfect information.

This unique compendium focuses on the insights of hybrid metaheuristics. It illustrates the recent researches on evolving novel hybrid metaheuristic algorithms, and prominently highlights its diverse application areas. As such, the book helps readers to grasp the essentials of hybrid metaheuristics and to address real world problems.

The must-have volume serves as an inspiring read for professionals, researchers, academics and graduate students in the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning.
