Genetic Algorithms in Electromagnetics
This book provides the complete and insightful information about the genetic algorithms that are essential to optimize electromagnetic systems. It mainly focuses on the performance of electromagnetic system that is resulted by the computer algorithm, analytical model and experiments that how the objective function for the performance can be optimized. Along with the performance check it also provide guidance to optimize it with the use of genetic algorithms where the traditional techniques get failed.
It has numerous features that make it worth reading as it explains about the GA both in binary and continuous variable forms with the illustrations of MATLAB commands. Even it provides the comprehensive overview of applications of genetic algorithms to the antenna array design problems along with the full coverage for the GA as an adaptive algorithm including the both smart and adaptive arrays and even adaptive reflectors and crossed dipoles. It answers to your question that how horn, reflector and microchip patch antennas can be optimized that requires more computing power.
Even author has included ideas for the selection between operator and parameter for GA and depth explanation for the particle swarm optimization. This book also contains the appendix for MATLAB coding for the experimentation.
