Genetic fuzzy clustering by means of discovering membership functions

Turhan, M
It has been observed that in the previous Genetic Algorithms (GA) based Fuzzy Clustering (FC) works only some of the parameters of an FC system are developed. Here, a new approach is proposed to develop directly the membership functions for the clusters using GA. This new technique is implemented and tested on common test data. A comparative study of the results against the quotations in literature reveals that the standard c-means FC technique is outperformed by the proposed technique in the count of misclassifications aspect.


Genetic algorithm-Monte Carlo hybrid geometry optimization method for atomic clusters
Dugan, Nazim; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2009-03-01)
In this work, an evolutionary type global optimization method for identifying the stable geometries of atomic clusters is developed and applied to carbon clusters for testing purpose. Monte Carlo (MC) type local optimization is used between genetic algorithm (GA) steps together with a special Mutation operation designed for the Cluster geometry optimization problem. Cluster geometries and the corresponding potential energies for carbon obtained with this GA-MC hybrid method are compared with available resul...
Genetic Algorithm Application to the Structural Properties of Si-Ge Mixed Clusters
Dugan, Nazim; Erkoç, Şakir (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
Optimum geometries of silicon-germanium (Si-Ge) clusters are found using a single parent genetic algorithm. 100 atom and 150 atom clusters are studied with some variety of compositions and initial geometries. Total interaction energies, distances of Si and Ge atoms to the cluster centers, and average bond lengths are calculated. Si-core Ge-shell geometry is found to be favorable compared to other geometries.
Integrated nonlinear regression analysis of tracer and well test data
Akın, Serhat (Elsevier BV, 2003-08-01)
One frequent observation from conventional pressure transient test analysis is that field data match mathematical models derived for homogeneous systems. This observation suggests that pressure data as presently interpreted may not contain details concerning certain reservoir heterogeneities. On the other hand, tracer tests may be more sensitive to heterogeneous elements present in the reservoir because of the convective nature of the flow test. In this study, a possible improvement of conventional pressure...
A statistical approach to sparse multi-scale phase-based stereo
Ulusoy, İlkay (Elsevier BV, 2007-09-01)
In this study, a multi-scale phase based sparse disparity algorithm and a probabilistic model for matching uncertain phase are proposed. The features used are oriented edges extracted using steerable filters. Feature correspondences are estimated using phase-similarity at multiple scale using a magnitude weighting scheme. In order to achieve sub-pixel accuracy in disparity, we use a fine tuning procedure which employs the phase difference between corresponding feature points. We also derive a probabilistic ...

An automatic segmentation algorithm that is based on watersheds and region merging type multi-scale segmentation (MSS) is proposed, which can be used as the initial step of an object-based classifier. First, the image is segmented using watershed segmentation. Then, primitive segments are merged to create meaningful objects by the proposed hybrid region merging algorithm. During these steps, an unsupervised segmentation accuracy metric is considered so that best performing parameters of the proposed algorit...
