What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This book nicely combines many papers on a general topic of timeliness and importance." (Journal of the Operational Research Society, 2008)

"…a good overview of recent metaheuristic techniques, and can be used as a starting point for developing new parallel version of the methods." (Computing Reviews.com, March 13, 2006)
