Optimization refers to the process of finding an optimal set from the set of all possible solutions for a given problems. An algorithm is normally developed call optimization algorithm to find such a solution. Regardless of the specific structure, such algorithms required to compare two solutions at some stage to decide which one is better. An objective function (often called fitness, cost, etc) is used to evaluate the merit of each solution.
