Extended self organizing feature map: A tagged potential field approach

1999-8
This paper proposes an escape methodology to the local minima problem of self organizing feature maps generated in the overlapping regions which are equidistant to the corresponding winners. Two new versions of the Self Organizing Feature Map are derived equipped with such a methodology. The first approach introduces an excitation term, which increases the convergence speed and efficiency of the algorithm, while increasing the probability of escaping from local minima. In the second approach, we associate a learning set which specifies the attractive and repulsive field of output neurons. Results indicate that accuracy percentile of the new methods are higher than the original algorithm while they have the ability to escape from local minima.

A tunable multi-band metamaterial design using micro-split SRR structures
EKMEKÇİ, Evren; TOPALLI, Kagan; Akın, Tayfun; Sayan, Gönül (2009-08-31)
This paper presents the results of a feasibility study for the design of multi-band tunable metamaterials based on the use of micro-split SRR (MSSRR) structures. In this study, we have designed and constructed a conventional split-ring resonator (SRR) unit cell (type A) and two modified SRR unit cells having the same design parameters except that they contain two (type B) or four (type C) additional micro-splits on the outer square ring, along the arm having the main split. Transmission characteristics of t...
A probabilistic multiple criteria sorting approach based on distance functions
ÇELİK, BİLGE; Karasakal, Esra; İyigün, Cem (2015-05-01)
In this paper, a new probabilistic distance based sorting (PDIS) method is developed for multiple criteria sorting problems. The distance to the ideal point is used as a criteria disaggregation function to determine the values of alternatives. These values are used to sort alternatives into the predefined classes. The method also calculates probabilities that each alternative belong to the predefined classes in order to handle alternative optimal solutions. It is applied to five data sets and its performanc...
A framework for state attraction of discrete event systems under partial observation
Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2014-10-10)
State attraction for discrete event systems (DES) addresses the problem of reaching a desired subset of the plant state space after a bounded number of event occurrences. The problem of state attraction arises for example in fault-tolerant supervisory control or in the control of reconfigurable manufacturing systems, and is also applicable to systems biological problems such as the control of gene regulatory networks. State attraction is investigated with the assumption of full event observation in the exi...
A Radar Target Recognition Method with MUSIC Algorithm: Application to Aircraft Targets with Measured Scattered Data
Secmen, M.; Turhan-Sayan, G.; Sayan, Gönül (2008-05-30)
This paper demonstrates the usefulness of an ultra wideband target recognition method in the case of realistic and complicated target geometries at resonance region. The method utilizes the MUSIC algorithm to extract the natural resonance-related scattering features of targets. The resulting features give the power distribution maps of targets. These maps are called as fused MUSIC spectrum matrices and used as the main target recognition feature in the method. The fusion process is needed to reduce the aspe...
