The fabrication of mesoporous silica films with well-defined morphologies [1] offers tremendous opportunity for device structures. In particular the generation of a mesoporous silica film with cylindrical nanochannels of prescribed diameters oriented normal to the substrate holds great promise for applications in catalysis, [2] bio-molecular separations,(More)
This paper proposes two different parallel genetic algorithms (PGAs) for constrained ordering problems. Constrained ordering problems are constraint optimization problems (COPs) for which it is possible represent a candidate solution as a permutation of objects. A decoder is used to decode this permutation into an instantiafion of the COP vm-iables. Two(More)
Non binary constraints have recently been studied quite extensively since they represent real life problems very naturally. Specifically, extensions to binary arc consistency into generalised arc consistency (GAC), and forward checking that incorporates a limited amount of GAC have been proposed , to handle non-binary constraints directly. Enforcing arc(More)
