Search problems are sometimes hard to compute. This is mainly due to the high dimensionality of some search spaces. Unless suitable approaches are used, search processes can be time-consuming and ineffective. Nature has evolved many complex systems able to deal with such difficulties. Fish schools, for instance, benefit greatly from the large number of(More)
This paper presents a comparative analyzes between three search algorithms, named Fish School Search, Particle Swarm Optimization and Covariance Matrix Adaptation Evolution Strategy applied to ill-conditioned problems. We aim to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Fish School Search in the optimization processes when the objective function has(More)
The use of monofilament nonabsorbable suture materials is not common in Dentistry. Although it is known that multifilament suture materials induce greater cellular reaction, most Dentists prefer to use cotton and silk. Rigidity and package memory are disadvantages of monofilament nonabsorbable suture materials. A new material, Polybutester (Novafil), has(More)
