Moving averages of the solution of an initial value problem for a system of ordinary differential equations are used to extract the general behavior of the solution without following it in detail. They can be computed directly by solving delay differential equations. Because they vary much less rapidly and are smoother, they are easier to compute.
This paper proposes an adaptive zooming genetic algorithm (AZGA) for continuous optimisation problems. Other than gradually reducing the search space with a fixed reduction rate during the evolution process, the upper and lower boundaries for variables in the objective function are dynamically adjusted based on the distribution information of variables in… (More)
The problem of data overload in supervisory control of critical complex industrial systems is addressed. As a solution data mining has been shown as an effective tool to help human supervisory control of a coal-fired power generation plant in reducing pollutant emissions.
