Grouping Genetic Algorithm with Efficient Data Structures for the University Course Timetabling Problem
free download

An efficient grouping genetic algorithm (GGA) was proposed by R. Lewis and B. Paechter (2007) to find feasible timetables for a version of the university course timetabling problem (UCTP). The algorithm proved to be efficient to construct feasible solutions for the UCTP

2D GPR DATA ANALYSIS OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES USING MIGRATION VELOCITY SIMULATION ALGORITHM
free download

ABSTRACT Ground Penetrating Radar is becoming increasingly popular to use as a non- destructive assessment method for investigating reinforced concrete structures. The large amount of data collected take significant level of experience to interpret. Ground

Evolutionary algorithm for learning Bayesian structures from data
free download

Abstract: In this paper we report an evolutionary approach to learning Bayesian networks from data. We explain reasons, which advocate such a non-deterministic approach. We analyze weaknesses of previous works and come to conclusion that we should operate in

Data Structures and Programming Techniques for the Implementation of Karmarkar'sAlgorithm
free download

This paper describes data structures and programming techniques used in an implementation of Karmarkar's algorithm for linear programming. Most of our discussion focuses on applying Gaussian elimination toward the solution of a sequence of sparse

Dynamic Data Structures: The Interplay of Invariants and Algorithm Design
free download

English In this thesis I will address three dynamic data structure problems using the concept of invariants. The first problem is maintaining a dynamically changing set of keys dictionary where the queries we can ask are: does it contain a given key and what is the
