  • A new genetic algorithm, pinch multi-agent genetic algorithm (PMAGA), is developed for optimizing water-using networks. All agents are fixed on a lattice, and they will compete or cooperate to increase their energy. On the other hand, agents can also increase their energy with knowledge. For single contaminant water-using systems, PMAGA and other algorithms as well as Lingo can find the same minimum freshwater consumption. For multiple contaminants systems, it can find the same or better… CONTINUE READING
