—Vector-evaluated particle swarm optimization is a particle swarm optimization variant which employs multiple swarms to solve multi-objective optimization problems. Recently, three variants of particle swarm optimization which utilize cooperative principles were shown to improve performance in single-objective environments. This work proposes cooperative(More)
—Vector-evaluated particle swarm optimization (VEPSO) is a particle swarm optimization (PSO) variant which employs multiple swarms to solve multi-objective optimization problems (MOPs). Each swarm optimizes a single objective and information is passed between swarms using a knowledge transfer strategy (KTS). The recently proposed cooperative VEPSO (CVEPSO)(More)
The effect of nicotine on hand tremor was assessed by measuring the current induced in a coil by a magnet attached to the finger. Experiment 1 assessed the amplitude of tremor induced by smoking two cigarettes in a group of 33 subjects drawn from two age groups. Smoking increased tremor significantly. Age, sex, and anxiety levels had no effect. Experiment 2(More)
