Support vector machine (SVM) is a popular pattern classification method with many diverse applications. Kernel parameter setting in the SVM training procedure, along with the feature selection, significantly influences the classification accuracy. This study simultaneously determines the parameter values while discovering a subset of features, without(More)
OBJECTIVE The type of data in microarray provides unprecedented amount of data. A typical microarray data of ovarian cancer consists of the expressions of tens of thousands of genes on a genomic scale, and there is no systematic procedure to analyze this information instantaneously. To avoid higher computational complexity, it needs to select the most(More)
Support vector machine (SVM) is a novel pattern classification method that is valuable in many applications. Kernel parameter setting in the SVM training process, along with the feature selection, significantly affects classification accuracy. The objective of this study is to obtain the better parameter values while also finding a subset of features that(More)
The broad applications of cellular manufacturing make flowline manufacturing cell scheduling problems with sequence dependent family setup times a core topic in the field of scheduling. Due to computational complexity, almost all published studies focus on using permutation schedules to deal with this problem. To explore the potential effectiveness of(More)
A general weapon-target assignment (WTA) problem is to find a proper assignment of weapons to targets with the objective of minimizing the expected damage of own-force asset. Genetic algorithms (GAs) are widely used for solving complicated optimization problems, such as WTA problems. In this paper, a novel GA with greedy eugenics is proposed. Eugenics is a(More)
