This paper presents the tuning of the structure and parameters of a neural network using an improved genetic algorithm (GA). It is also shown that the improved GA performs better than the standard GA based on some benchmark test functions. A neural network with switches introduced to its links is proposed. By doing this, the proposed neural network can… (More)
A fast iterative method is derived for minimum cross entropy thresholding using a one-point iteration scheme. Simulations performed using synthetic generated histograms and a real image show the speed advantage and the accuracy of the iterated version. q 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
—It is well known that sliding-mode control can give good transient performance and system robustness. However, the presence of chattering may introduce problems to the actuators. Many chattering elimination methods use a finite dc gain controller which leads to a finite steady-state error. One method to ensure zero steady-state error is using a… (More)
Recently we have proposed a simple circuit of winner-take-all (WTA) neural network. Assuming no external input, we have derived an analytic equation for its network response time. In this paper, we further analyze the network response time for a class of winner-take-all circuits involving self-decay and show that the network response time of such a class of… (More)
—This paper presents a neural network with a novel neuron model. In this model, the neuron has two activation functions and exhibits a node-to-node relationship in the hidden layer. This neural network provides better performance than a traditional feedforward neural network, and fewer hidden nodes are needed. The parameters of the proposed neural network… (More)
—This paper presents the stability and robustness analysis for multivariable fuzzy control systems subject to parameter uncertainties based on a single-grid-point (SGP) approach. To perform the analysis, we represent a multivariable nonlinear system using a TS-fuzzy plant model. Three design approaches of fuzzy controllers are introduced to close the… (More)
—This paper addresses the optimization and stabilization problems of nonlinear systems subject to parameter uncertainties. The methodology is based on a fuzzy logic approach and an improved genetic algorithm (GA). The TSK fuzzy plant model is employed to describe the dynamics of the uncertain nonlinear plant. A fuzzy controller is then obtained to close the… (More)
