2.1 Introduction

The advancement that took place in stochastic optimization techniques in recent years is beyond anyone’s imagination. Stochastic optimization methods are those that generate and use random variables as oppose to mathematical optimization. Several new stochastic optimization techniques are emerged and they are widely applied in obtaining the solution of engineering design optimization problems. ...
