In recent years the computing power of graphics cards has increased significantly. Indeed, the growth in the computing power of these graphics cards is now several orders of magnitude greater than the growth in the power of computer processor units. Thus these graphics cards are now beginning to be used by the scientific community aslow cost, high(More)
This paper is concerned with a dynamic vehicle routing problem. The problem is dynamic in the sense that the time it will take to traverse each edge is uncertain. The problem is expressed as a bi-criterion optimisation with the mutually exclusive aims of minimising both the total mean transit time and the total variance in transit time. In this paper we(More)
Microelectronics are typically critical components in a military platform, some of which may become obsolete, before the equipment life cycle end. Obsolete components may be required for a number of reasons. Components can become obsolete even before production of a platform commences. The selection of solutions for resolving obsolete components throughout(More)
Reducing costs whilst maintaining passenger satisfaction is an important problem for airports. One area this can be applied is the security lane checks at the airport. However, reducing costs through reducing lane openings typically increases queue length and hence passenger dissatisfaction. This paper demonstrates that evolutionary methods can be used to(More)
Genetic Programming (GP) is a computationally intensive technique which also has a high degree of natural parallelism. Parallel computing architectures have become commonplace especially with regards Graphics Processing Units (GPU). Hence, versions of GP have been implemented that utilise these highly parallel computing platforms enabling significant gains(More)
