This paper presents a survey of evolutionary algorithms designed for clustering tasks. It tries to reflect the profile of this area by focusing more on those subjects that have been given more importance in the literature. In this context, most of the paper is devoted to partitional algorithms that look for hard clusterings of data, though overlapping (i.e., soft and fuzzy) approaches are also cov...

Petri nets are a popular mathematical tool to investigate the deadlock problems in resource allocation systems. As an important problem solution paradigm in computer science, the divide-and-conquer strategy is used in this paper to investigate the deadlock prevention for flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs) that are modeled with Petri nets. Based on the concept of resource circuits, a plant net m... View full abstract»

Joint radio resource management (JRRM) is the envisaged process aimed at optimizing the radio resource usage of wireless systems to satisfy the requirements of both the network operators and the users in the context of future generation wireless networks. In particular, this paper proposes a two-layered JRRM framework to improve the efficiency of multiradio and multioperator cellular scenarios. On... View full abstract»
Integrated Resource Allocation and Scheduling in a Bidirectional Flowshop With Multimachine and COS ConstraintsPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):190 - 200
Cited by: Papers (4)
An integer programming (IP) model is proposed for integrated resource allocation and operation scheduling for a multiple job-agents system. Each agent handles a specific job-list in a bidirectional flowshop. For the individual agent scheduling problem, a formulation is proposed in continuous time domain and compared with an IP formulation in discrete time domain. Of particular interest is the form...

Sensor fault detection and identification (FDI) is a process of detecting and validating sensor's fault status. Because FDI guarantees system reliable performance, it has received much attention recently. In this paper, we address the problem of online sensor fault identification and validation. For a physical sensor validation system, it contains transitions between sensor normal and faulty state... View full abstract»

This paper introduces a new framework for point target detection in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. We focus on the task of locating reflective small regions using a level-set-based algorithm. Unlike most of the approaches in image segmentation, we address an algorithm that incorporates speckle statistics instead of empirical parameters and also discards speckle filtering. The curve evolves... View full abstract»

Many enterprises devote a significant portion of their budget to new product development (NPD) and marketing to make their products distinctive from those of competitors, and better fit the needs and wants of consumers. Hence, knowledge and feedback on customer demand and consumption experience has become an important information and asset for enterprises. This paper investigates the following res...

This paper proposes a human-centered interactive framework for automatically mining and retrieving semantic events in videos. After preprocessing, the object trajectories and event models are fed into the core components of the framework for learning and retrieval. As trajectories are spatiotemporal in nature, the learning component is designed to analyze time series data. The human feedback to th... View full abstract»
Disturbance Attenuation in Fault Detection of Gas Turbine Engines: A Discrete Robust Observer DesignPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):234 - 239
Cited by: Papers (13)
This study is motivated by the onboard fault detection of gas turbine engines (GTEs), where the computation resources are limited and the disturbance is assumed to be band-limited. A fast Fourier transformation (FFT)-based disturbance frequency estimation approach is proposed and performance indexes are improved by integrating such frequency information. Furthermore, in the left eigenvector assign... View full abstract»

Intelligent home service systems consist of ubiquitous sensors, a home network, and a context-aware computing system that together collect residential environment information and provide intelligent services such as controlling the environment or lighting. Determining a resident's location in the smart home or smart office is a key to such a system. This correspondence presents an enhanced locatio... View full abstract»

New polymers are frequently appearing in the literature with a wide range of applications, e.g., they are being used in applications like fuel cell membrane, fertilizers, coating elements, etc. One of the requirements of the researchers involved in polymer science is to quickly compare the samples being fabricated. One of the measures for comparison is surface roughness. However, the high cost inv... View full abstract»
