Sudoku puzzles belong to a set of hard problems called NP-Complete problems. A Sudoku puzzle is a logic-based combinatorial puzzle with rules that are relatively simple. Various algorithms have been… (More)

Harmony Search (HS) algorithm, a relatively recent metaheuristic optimization algorithm based on the music improvisation process of musicians, is applied to one of today’s most appealing problems in… (More)

Neural network design aims for high classification accuracy and low network architecture complexity. It is also known that simultaneous optimization of both model accuracy and complexity improves… (More)

This paper suggests an approach to neural network training through the simultaneous optimization of architectures and weights with a Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO)-based multiobjective algorithm.… (More)

An Artificial Neural Network (ANN) is an abstract representation of the biological nervous system which has the ability to solve many complex problems. The interesting attributes it exhibits makes an… (More)

Sudoku is a popular newspaper puzzle that has become an international phenomenon. Sudoku which means “single digits” is a logicbased combinatorial puzzle with rules that are quite simple. Several… (More)
