It is seemingly paradoxical to the classical definition of the independent component analysis (ICA), that in reality, the true sources are often not strictly uncorrelated. With this in mind, this letter concerns a framework to extract quasi-uncorrelated sources with finite supports by optimizing a range-based contrast function under unit-norm constraints(More)
The economic load dispatch problem (ELDP) is a classical problem in the power systems community. It consists in the optimal scheduling of the output of power generating units to meet the required load demand subject to unit and system inequality and equality constraints. This optimization problem is challenging on three different levels: the geometry of its(More)
The problem of finding the optimal oriented bounding box (OBB) for a given set of points in R, yet simple to state, is computationally challenging. Existing state-of-the-art methods dealing with this problem are either exact but slow, or fast but very approximative and unreliable. We propose a method based on Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) to approximate(More)
