Machine independent algorithm for concurrent finite-element problems

Conference Proceeding
Buchanan, W., Buchanan, W. J., & Gupta, N. K. (1996)
Machine independent algorithm for concurrent finite-element problems. In 3rd International IEEE Conference on Computation in Electromagnetics, 1996, 17-20. doi:10.1049/cp:19960150
The finite-element method, initially developed for mechanical and civil engineering applications, is now applied to electromagnetics. This paper describes how parallel process...

BayesPiles: Visualisation Support for Bayesian Network Structure Learning. ACM transactions on intelligent systems and technology, 10(1), 1-23. https://doi.org/10.1145/3230623
We address the problem of exploring, combining and comparing large collections of scored, directed networks for understanding inferred Bayesian networks used in biology. In th...

On the comparison of initialisation strategies in differential evolution for large scale optimisation

Journal Article
Segredo, E., Paechter, B., Segura, C., & González-Vila, C. I. (2018)
On the comparison of initialisation strategies in differential evolution for large scale optimisation. Optimization Letters, 12(1), 221-234. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11590-017-1107-z
Differential Evolution (DE) has shown to be a promising global opimisation solver for continuous problems, even for those with a large dimensionality. Different previous works...
