There are many highly effective optimization, feedback control, and automation systems embedded in living organisms and nature. Evolution persistently seeks optimal robust designs for biological feedback control systems and decision making processes. From this comprehensive text you will gain knowledge of how mimicry of such biological processes can be used to solve optimization, control, and automation problems encountered in the construction of high technology systems. Mathematical stability analysis is treated for a number of cases, from attentional systems to social foraging swarm cohesion properties. Bio-inspired optimization and control methods are compared to conventional techniques with an objective to provide a balanced viewpoint.
