Exploring isospectral spring–mass systems with firefly algorithm

Abstract

This paper investigates in-line spring–mass systems (An), fixed at one end and free at the other, with n-degrees of freedom (d.f.). The objective is to find feasible in-line systems (Bn) that are isospectral to a given system. The spring–mass systems, An and Bn , are represented by Jacobi matrices. An error function is developed with the help of the Jacobi… (More)
