About this book

As computing devices proliferate, demand increases for an understanding of emerging computing paradigms and models based on natural phenomena. Neural networks, evolution-based models, quantum computing, and DNA-based computing and simulations are all a necessary part of modern computing analysis and systems development. Vast literature exists on these new paradigms and their implications for a wide array of applications.

This comprehensive handbook, the first of its kind to address the connection between nature-inspired and traditional computational paradigms, is a repository of case studies dealing with different problems in computing and solutions to these problems based on nature-inspired paradigms. The "Handbook of Nature-Inspired and Innovative Computing: Integrating Classical Models with Emerging Technologies" is an essential compilation of models, methods, and algorithms for researchers, professionals, and advanced-level students working in all areas of computer science, IT, biocomputing, and network engineering.

About the authors

Albert Zomaya was named an ACM Distinguished Engineer in 2006, at the inception of ACM’s program to recognize engineers and scientists for their contributions to both the practical and theoretical aspects of computing and information technology.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Handbook contains 22 chapters, written in a ‘workshop style’ … . I found this volume to be a fascinating, and ‘gentle,’ introduction to a wide range of nonstandard research areas of computer science. … this book used as the basis for a seminar on approaches to decentralized computation. … I consider it a collection of tutorials … . I think this book would be of use to anyone with some CS sophistication who desires exposure to a wide range of newer or less-publicized research areas.” (Aaron Sterling, The Book Review Column, 2011)
