Chandigarh, November 9, 2019: Dr Gnansekaran N., Assistant professor, NIT Surathkal, Karnataka delivered a lecture on “Hybrid Optimization for Engineering applications” at Information Technology department of UIET, Panjab University Chandigarh on November 7.
He emphasized on the importance of Optimization methods for solving engineering problems. Key optimization algorithms like Genetic Algorithm, Particle Swarm Optimization were also covered by him. He took engineering examples to teach optimization methods. Many times it is difficult to select one optimization algorithm for a particular problem, combining two methods may give better solution. Research papers were discussed by the speaker to show that hybrid optimization is the key to find optimal solution.
This lecture was organized by Mr Sukhvir Singh, Assistant Professor and Dr Krishan Kumar, Professor under the guidance of Dr Savita Gupta, Director, UIET. Almost 80 persons attended this lecture including faculty members, research scholars, master's students and undergraduate students.
