Abstract

Electromagnetic approaches based on inverse scattering are very important in the field of nondestructive analysis of dielectric targets. In most cases, the inverse scattering problem related to the reconstruction of the dielectric properties of unknown targets starting from measured field values can be recast as an optimization problem. Due to the ill-posedness of this inverse problem, the application of global optimization techniques seems to be a very suitable choice. In this chapter, the authors review the use of the Ant Colony Optimization method, which is a stochastic optimization algorithm that has been found to provide very good results in a plethora of applications in the area of electromagnetics as well as in other fields of electrical engineering.
