  • Identification of a noiseless nonlinear system by gradient method

    Publication Year: 2000 , Page(s): 259 - 262
    Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (324 KB)  

    When a system containing nonlinearity is noiseless and its composite structure is known a priori, we propose the use of a gradient method for system identification to replace the usual Volterra series approach. The identifier system in the gradient method is a composite replica to the nonlinear system to be identified, while in the Volterra series approach, the identifier system is an extended FIR...

    Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (612 KB)  

    We examine the results of major previous attempts to apply genetic and evolutionary computation (GEC) to image processing. In many problems, the accuracy (quality) of solutions obtained by GEC-based methods is better than that obtained by other methods such as neural networks and simulated annealing. However the computation time required is satisfactory in some problems, whereas it is unsatisfacto... View full abstract»

    Today's first generation shopping agent is limited to comparing merchant offerings usually on price instead of their full range of attributes. Even in the full range comparison, there is not a good model which considers the overall features in the negotiation process. Therefore, the negotiation model needs to be extended to include negotiations over more attributes. We propose a negotiation model ... View full abstract»
