Propose a chapter for this book

The Advances in Civil and Industrial Engineering (ACIE) Book Series aims to present research and methodology that will provide solutions and discussions to meet such needs. The latest methodologies, applications, tools, and analysis will be published through the books included in ACIE in order to keep the available research in civil and industrial engineering as current and timely as possible.

Introduction
Modern optimization approaches have attracted many research scientists, decision makers and practicing researchers in recent years as powerful intelligent computational techniques for solving unlimited numbers of complex real-world problems, particularly related to the research area of optimization. Under the unpredictable and turbulent environment, classical and traditional approaches are struggling to obtain a holistic solution with a greater level of satisfaction for the real world application problems on optimization. Therefore, new global optimization methods are required to handle these issues seriously. One such method is the modern optimization technique, a generic, flexible, robust, and versatile framework for solving complex problems of global optimization and research in real world applications.

Objective of the Book
Modern optimization techniques are robust, less time-consuming, dependable, high quality solutions, and an efficient productive tool for solving the nonlinear real-world problem in engineering, technology, science and economy in an uncertain environment. The modern optimization techniques developed in this book are user-friendly, easy-to-use and can serve as a teaching and research tool, besides being useful for practicing scientists in the areas of engineering, technology and economy. In this book, the editors aim to give a valuable enrichment to state-of-the-art scientific discourse in theory, methods, and applications; to strengthen interdisciplinary ties; and to refresh given and initiate new joint ventures in research and education, for improvements of the industries and economies of the world and for better living conditions and perspectives of its people.

Target Audience
Graduate, Postgraduate students, decision makers and researchers in private sectors, universities, and industries in the fields of various sciences and management, such as mathematics/applied mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, management, business, economics and finance, or wherever one wants to model their uncertain practical and real life problems. It is well known that uncertainty is inevitable in every field of engineering, management and science. This book aims to become significant and very helpful for humankind.
