In this work a new optimization method, called the heuristic Kalman algorithm (HKA), is presented. This new algorithm is proposed as an alternative approach for solving continuous , non-convex optimization problems. The principle of HKA is to explicitly consider the optimization problem as a measurement process designed to give an estimate of the optimum. A(More)
The main objective of this paper is to present a new optimization approach, which we call heuristic Kalman algorithm (HKA). We propose it as a viable approach for solving continuous nonconvex optimization problems. The principle of the proposed approach is to consider explicitly the optimization problem as a measurement process designed to produce an(More)

Finding such a controller is known to be computationally intractable via the conventional techniques. This is mainly due to the(More)
The aim of this paper is to present a classifier based on a fuzzy inference system. For this classifier, we propose a parameterization method which is not necessarily based on an iterative training. This approach can be seen as a pre-parameterization which allows the determination of the rules base and the parameters of the membership functions. We also(More)
In this paper, we consider the design of a fuzzy structured controller for systems that can be well described by uncertain T-S fuzzy models. Finding such a controller is known to be computationally intractable by the conventional techniques. Therefore, to solve this design problem easily and directly, we utilize a moving boundary process together with a(More)
