Dynamic friction model and its application in flat rolling
There have not been any friction models applied to successfully predict distributions of contact stresses in flat rolling yet, in particular for the neutral plane. In this paper, the dynamic friction model (DFM) is expressed ...
Fast multi-swarm optimatization for dynamic optimization problems.
In the real world, many applications are non-stationary optimization problems. This requires that the optimization algorithms need to not only find the global optimal solution but also track the trajectory of the changing ...
A review of personal communications services.
PCS is an acronym for personal communications service. Ubiquitous PCS can be implemented by integrating the wireless and wireline systems on the basis of intelligent network (IN), which provides network functions of terminal ...
A memetic algorithm for the university course timetabling problem.
The design of course timetables for academic institutions is a very hectic job due to the exponential number of possible feasible timetables with respect to the problem size. This process involves lots of constraints that ...
Compound particle swarm optimization in dynamic environments.
Adaptation to dynamic optimization problems is currently receiving a growing interest as one of the most important applications of evolutionary algorithms. In this paper, a compound particle swarm optimization (CPSO) is ...
An adaptive mutation operator for particle swarm optimization.
Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is an e cient tool for optimization and search problems. However, it is easy to be trapped into local optima due to its information sharing mechanism. Many research works have shown that ...
Evolutionary programming with q-Gaussian mutation for evolutionary optimization problems.
The use of evolutionary programming algorithms with self-adaptation of the mutation distribution for dynamic optimization problems is investigated in this paper. In the proposed method, the q-Gaussian distribution is ...
