Heuristic algorithms are usually employed to find an optimal solution to NP-Complete problems. Genetic algorithms are among such algorithms and they are search algorithms based on the mechanics of natural selection and genetics. Since genetic algorithms work with a set of candidate solutions, parallelisation based on the SIMD paradigm seems to be the(More)
During voiced speech, the larynx provides quasi-periodic acoustic excitation of the vocal tract. In most electrolarynxes, mechanical vibrations are produced by a linear electromechanical actuator, the armature of which percusses against a metal or plastic plate at a frequency within the range of glottal excitation. In this paper, the intelligibility of(More)
