A new multiobjective simulated annealing algorithm
Tekinalp, Ozan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-09-01)
A new multiobjective simulated annealing algorithm for continuous optimization problems is presented. The algorithm has an adaptive cooling schedule and uses a population of fitness functions to accurately generate the Pareto front. Whenever an improvement with a fitness function is encountered, the trial point is accepted, and the temperature parameters associated with the improving fitness functions are cooled. Beside well known linear fitness functions, special elliptic and ellipsoidal fitness functions,...
A new data-adaptive network design methodology based on the k-means clustering and modified ISODATA algorithm for regional gravity field modeling via spherical radial basis functions
Uluğ, Raşit; Karslıoğlu, Mahmut Onur (2022-11-01)
© 2022, Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature.In this study, a new data-adaptive network design methodology called k-SRBF is presented for the spherical radial basis functions (SRBFs) in regional gravity field modeling. In this methodology, the cluster centers (centroids) obtained by the k-means clustering algorithm are post-processed to construct a network of SRBFs by replacing the centroids with the SRBFs. The post-processing procedure is inspired by the heuristic method, Iterative Self-Or...

A new hybrid multi-relational data mining technique
Toprak, Seda Dağlar; Toroslu, İ. Hakkı; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
Multi-relational learning has become popular due to the limitations of propositional problem definition in structured domains and the tendency of storing data in relational databases. As patterns involve multiple relations, the search space of possible hypotheses becomes intractably complex. Many relational knowledge discovery systems have been developed employing various search strategies, search heuristics and pattern language limitations in order to cope with the complexity of hypothesis space. In this w...
A new clustering scheme and its use in an information retrieval system incorporating the support of a database machine
Can, Fazlı; Özkarahan, Esen A.; Department of Computer Engineering (1984-11)
The need for immediate and accurate access to the current literature at one side and the information explosion on the other side have caused the development of information retrieval systems. in this work, information retrieval problem is studied and new concepts and methodologies are proposed for its solution. The new proposals are cover coefficient and cluster seed power concepts and the methodologies for estimating the number of clusters within a col...
