The feature selection problem often occurs in pattern recognition and, more specifically, classification. Although these patterns could contain a large number of features, some of them could prove toâ€¦ (More)

When performing classification tasks on problems stemming from the real-world phenomena, issues requiring attention often arise due to the specific nature of the data. One common problem is theâ€¦ (More)

In this paper, a new fast incremental fuzzy partitioning algorithm able to find either a fuzzy globally optimal partition or a fuzzy locally optimal partition of the set A âŠ‚ R close to the global oneâ€¦ (More)

The task assignment problem commonly appears in distributed computing environments. It asks an assignment of tasks to processors is found such that it satisfies the imposed constraints and that theâ€¦ (More)

The initial population of an evolutionary algorithm is an important factor which affects the convergence rate and ultimately its ability to find high quality solutions or satisfactory solutions forâ€¦ (More)

In this paper, we have considered the merging problem of two ellipsoidal clusters in order to construct a new fusion algorithm for fuzzy clustering. We have proposed a criterion for merging twoâ€¦ (More)
