Cell Mapping Methods - Algorithmic Approaches and Application
Jian-Qiao Sun
University of California, Merced, USA

Talk Abstract: Research collaborations of University of California at Merced, CINVESTAV-IPN in Mexico and Tianjin University in China have advanced the study of multi-objective optimization problems, and resulted in a recent publication of a book printed by Springer. This talk presents an overview of the book and a summary of the research advances. In particular, we first discuss several engineering applications including multi-objective optimal control design and structural-acoustic design for minimum sound transmission. We then discuss some algorithmic development of the cell mapping methods for various applications. Discussions will then be directed to the future directions of the cell mapping based research in the framework of evolutionary computing and optimization.
