Fuzzy Modeling and Genetic Algorithms for Data Mining and Exploration

Fuzzy Modeling and Genetic Algorithms for Data Mining and Exploration

Fuzzy Modeling and Genetic Algorithms for Data Mining and Exploration is a handbook for analysts, engineers, and managers involved in developing data mining models in business and government. As you’ll discover, fuzzy systems are extraordinarily valuable tools for representing and manipulating all kinds of data, and genetic algorithms and evolutionary programming techniques drawn from biology […]

Multiobjective Genetic Algorithms for Clustering

Multiobjective Genetic Algorithms for Clustering

This is the first book primarily dedicated to clustering using multiobjective genetic algorithms with extensive real-life applications in data mining and bioinformatics. The authors first offer detailed introductions to the relevant techniques – genetic algorithms, multiobjective optimization, soft computing, data mining and bioinformatics. They then demonstrate systematic applications of these techniques to real-world problems in […]

Cellular Genetic Algorithms

Cellular Genetic Algorithms

CELLULAR GENETIC ALGORITHMS defines a new class of optimization algorithms based on the concepts of structured populations and Genetic Algorithms (GAs). The authors explain and demonstrate the validity of these cellular genetic algorithms throughout the book. This class of genetic algorithms is shown to produce impressive results on a whole range of domains, including complex […]

Huntington's Disease: Genetic Heterogeneity in Black African Patients (Original Articles)

Huntington’s Disease: Genetic Heterogeneity in Black African Patients (Original Articles)

Objective. Huntington’s disease (HD) has been reported to occur rarely in black patients. A new genetic variant-Huntington’s disease-like 2 (HDL2)–occurring more frequently in blacks, has recently been described. The absence of an expanded trinucleotide repeat at the chromosome 4 HD locus was previously regarded as a way of excluding classic HD. The objective of this […]

Grouping Genetic Algorithms

Grouping Genetic Algorithms

This book presents advances and innovations in grouping genetic algorithms, enriched with new and unique heuristic optimization techniques. These algorithms are specially designed for solving industrial grouping problems where system entities are to be partitioned or clustered into efficient groups according to a set of guiding decision criteria. Examples of such problems are: vehicle routing […]

Genetic Variations in Androgen Metabolism Genes and Associations with Prostate Cancer in South African Men (Original Articles) (Report)

Genetic Variations in Androgen Metabolism Genes and Associations with Prostate Cancer in South African Men (Original Articles) (Report)

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common histologically diagnosed malignancy in South African men, with an estimated annual incidence rate of 17.8/100 000.1 The age-standardised incidence rate (ASIR) of PCa in South African men in the 55 59-year age range is 56/100 000; this figure rises to 455/100 000 in men older than 75 […]

Genetic Algorithms for Applied CAD Problems

Genetic Algorithms for Applied CAD Problems

The development of intellectual systems connecting the human brain and computer technologies represents one of the most important problems of the 21st century. Therefore analytical methods of data mining of computer databases are being developed. Intellectual behavior of technical objects as well as the biological ones is defined by their structure, architecture and general organization […]
