In electrical engineering, design problems are both difficult to solve and also difficult to model. This consists to solve in most cases an inverse problem. For example, we impose an electric motor engine torque, the maximum flux density in the copper, the maximum magnetic field, etc.., and from these features, we try to find the physical dimensions of the motor that have this properties. But, in most of inverse problems, we have only finite element codes that require the use of algorithms managing functions like black box, such as genetic algorithms, Derivative-Free Optimization or Direct Search.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
