    The paper presents a model of the real world vehicle routing and dispatching problem. In real world, vehicle travel speeds are varying with period of time and can not be expressed as exact values. So the time-dependent and fuzzy travel speeds are introduced into the model. A dispatching period is divided into some time slices and each time slice is designated a triangular fuzzy speed. The travel t... View full abstract»

    The application level multicast overlay network (ON) is composed by the hosts based on the physics unicast links between them. The initial ON is a completely connectivity network, which make the multicast tree construction and routing is lower efficiency. For improving the ON routing performance, the ON links should be selected. Based on a new presented ON link selection model with reliability and... View full abstract»

    Niche genetic algorithm (NGA) is superior to genetic algorithm (GA) in multiple hump function optimization. NGA could search all global optimums of multiple hump function in a running. It is a class of parallel evolutionary method which suppresses genetic drift by forming stable subpopulations to maintain population diversity. To algorithm population diversity plays an important role to avoid trap... View full abstract»
