    Generally, Particle Swarm Optimization based Multi-Objective Optimization algorithm use only one leader to guide the particles flight in the velocity update. Thus, this paper introduces a Multi Leaders Multi Objective Optimization algorithm which is an initial implementation of multiple leaders in guiding the particles flight to search for optimum solutions. The multiple leaders' method is impleme... View full abstract»

    As CMOS technology scales down to the nanometer level process variation can produce deviation in device parameters which affect circuit performance. In this paper, we investigate the effect of seven process parameters and two process noise parameters on threshold voltage (Vth) in a 32nm PMOS transistor. Using Taguchi's experimental robust design strategy seven process parameters were assigned to 7... View full abstract»

    Group behavior that appears in a massive crowd can result in some uncontrolled actions that could endanger not only the members of the crowd, but also its surrounding environment. This unpredictable behavior is a result of the spread of influence and action of each individual against another individual in the crowd. Iterative process that happens constantly can lead to an uncontrolled accumulation... View full abstract»
