Autorenporträt
Bastien Chopard is a professor in the Département d'informatique of the Université de Genève, where he directs the Scientific and Parallel Computing Group. His main research activity concerns the study of complex systems, in particular the development of new numerical methods to model and simulate phenomena in natural sciences, economics, social systems, and biomedical applications, the key tools used being cellular automata, the lattice Boltzmann method, and multiagent techniques.

Marco Tomassini is an honorary professor at the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Lausanne (HEC). After obtaining a PhD degree in Theoretical Chemistry working on computer simulations of condensed matter systems, he switched to Computer Science and complex systems investigations. His main research activities have since focused on parallel computing, cellular automata, evolutionary algorithms, the structure of difficult problem landscapes, complex networks, and evolutionary games.

Rezensionen
"I would recommend this book for students in the area of operations research, but also for students and professionals from other fields (like natural sciences or social sciences) who would like not only to apply metaheuristics to solve the problems ... but also to understand how they work." (Marcin Anholcer, zbMATH 1427.90001, 2020)
