Particle Swarm Optimization: A Physics-Based Approach
TLDR
A panorama of applications demonstrating the power of the PSO, classical and quantum, in handling difficult engineering problems is provided, to provide a general multi-disciplinary view on various topics in physics, mathematics, and engineering.

  • 9 October 2006
TLDR
The performance of the QPSO is compared against an improved version of the classical PSO, which outperforms the classical one most of the time in convergence speed and achieves better levels for the cost function.
Improved particle swarm optimization technique using hard boundary conditions
TLDR
The application into linear‐array synthesis shows that the choice of the way in which the velocity is treated at the boundary of the problem can dramatically improve the convergence of the PSO algorithm.

  • 9 June 2007
TLDR
The hybrid version of the periodic boundary condition (PBC) is introduced to the PSO method by postulating that the swarm environment is similar to crystal bulk materials studied using MD.

  • 2 February 2015
We develop a general approach to cross correlation in antenna systems suitable for applications to spatial diversity and MIMO systems. The far-field correlation is expressed in terms of the currents
Theory and Applications of Infinitesimal Dipole Models for Computational Electromagnetics
  • S. Mikki, A. Kishk
  • Business
    IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation
  • 23 February 2007
The recently introduced quantum particle swarm optimization (QPSO) algorithm is employed to find infinitesimal dipole models (IDM) for antennas with known near-fields (measured or computed). The IDM
A Theory of Antenna Electromagnetic Near Field—Part II
  • S. Mikki, Y. Antar
  • Mathematics
    IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation
  • 18 August 2011
We continue in this paper a comprehensive theory of antenna near fields inaugurated in Part I. The concept of near-field streamlines is introduced using the Weyl expansion in which the total field is
A Theory of Antenna Electromagnetic Near Field—Part I
We present in this paper a comprehensive theory of antenna near fields in two parts, highlighting in particular the engineering perspective. Part I starts by providing a general conceptual framework
The Antenna Current Green's Function Formalism—Part II
  • S. Mikki, Y. Antar
  • Geology
    IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation
  • 5 June 2013
The main focus in Part II is on understanding the interrelations between the three modes of operations defined in Part I. Using a field reciprocity theorem, we prove that the receiving mode
Theory of optical scattering by carbon nanotubes
Here, a theory of optical scattering by single‐wall carbon nanotube using modal expansion of the scattered and transmitted fields is developed. The effective‐boundary condition, derived previously
