Abstract     [Buy Article]
    Modern soft computing methods, such as neural networks, evolutionary models and fuzzy
logic, are mainly inspired by the problem solving strategies the biological systems use in nature. As such,
the soft computing methods are fundamentally different from the conventional engineering problem
solving methods, which are based on mathematics. In the author
