Genetic Algorithms in Electromagnetics by Randy L. Haupt

Book Description

A thorough and insightful introduction to using genetic algorithms to optimize electromagnetic systems Genetic Algorithms in Electromagnetics focuses on optimizing the objective function when a computer algorithm, analytical model, or experimental result describes the performance of an electromagnetic system. It offers expert guidance to optimizing electromagnetic systems using genetic algorithms (GA), which have proven to be tenacious in finding optimal results where traditional techniques fail. Genetic Algorithms in Electromagnetics begins with an introduction to optimization and several commonly used numerical optimization routines, and goes on to feature:* Introductions to GA in both binary and continuous variable forms, complete with examples of MATLAB(r) commands* Two step-by-step examples of optimizing antenna arrays as well as a comprehensive overview of applications of GA to antenna array design problems* Coverage of GA as an adaptive algorithm, including adaptive and smart arrays as well as adaptive reflectors and crossed dipoles* Explanations of the optimization of several different wire antennas, starting with the famous "crooked monopole"* How to optimize horn, reflector, and microstrip patch antennas, which require significantly more computing power than wire antennas* Coverage of GA optimization of scattering, including scattering from frequency selective surfaces and electromagnetic band gap materials* Ideas on operator and parameter selection for a GA* Detailed explanations of particle swarm optimization and multiple objective optimization* An appendix of MATLAB code for experimentation

Books By Author Randy L. Haupt

Timed Arrays by Randy L. Haupt Timed Arrays, Hardback (May 2015)

Introduces timed arrays and design approaches to meet the new high performance standards The author concentrates on any aspect of an antenna array that must be viewed from a time perspective. The first chapters briefly introduce antenna arrays and explain the difference between phased and timed arrays.

Antenna Arrays by Randy L. Haupt Antenna Arrays, Hardback (May 2010)

This book covers a wide range of antenna array topics that are becoming increasingly important in wireless applications, particularly in design and computer modeling. Signal processing and numerical modeling algorithms are explored, and MATLAB computer codes are provided for many of the design examples.

Practical Genetic Algorithms by Randy L. Haupt Practical Genetic Algorithms, Hardback (June 2004)

Deals with the fundamentals of genetic algorithms and their applications in a variety of different areas of engineering and science. This book includes the MATLAB codes and provides a discussion of hybrid genetic algorithms, as well as more examples. It also gives an introduction to the subject of genetic algorithms.
