  • The role of Walsh structure and ordinal linkage in the optimisation of pseudo-Boolean functions under monotonicity invariance. 

    Christie, Lee A. (Robert Gordon University Faculty of Design and Technology. School of Computing Science and Digital Media., 2016-02)
    CHRISTIE, L.A. 2016. The role of Walsh structure and ordinal linkage in the optimisation of pseudo-Boolean functions under monotonicity invariance. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.
    Optimisation heuristics rely on implicit or explicit assumptions about the structure of the black-box fitness function they optimise. A review of the literature shows that understanding of structure and linkage is helpful ...
  • A sequence-length sensitive approach to learning biological grammars using inductive logic programming. 

    Mamer, Thierry (Robert Gordon University School of Computing, 2011-01)
    This thesis aims to investigate if the ideas behind compression principles, such as the Minimum Description Length, can help us to improve the process of learning biological grammars from protein sequences using Inductive ...
  • Solving the ising spin glass problem using a bivariate RDA based on Markov random fields.

    SHAKYA, S., MCCALL, J. and BROWN, D., 2006. Solving the ising spin glass problem using a bivariate RDA based on Markov random fields. In: YEN, G., LUCAS, S., FOGEL, G., KENDALL, G., SALOMON, R., ZHANG, B.-T., COELLO, C. and RUNARSSON, T., eds. Proceedings of the IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC 2006). 16-21 July 2006. New York: IEEE. pp. 908-915.
    Markov Random Field (MRF) modelling techniques have been recently proposed as a novel approach to probabilistic modelling for Estimation of Distribution Algorithms (EDAs). An EDA using this technique was called Distribution ...
  • Statistical optimisation and tuning of GA factors. 

    Petrovski, Andrei; Brownlee, Alexander Edward Ian; McCall, John (IEEE http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/CEC.2005.1554759, 2005-09)

    This paper presents a practical methodology of improving the efficiency of Genetic Algorithms through tuning the factors significantly affecting GA performance. This methodology is based on the methods of statistical ...
  • Structural coherence of problem and algorithm: an analysis for EDAs on all 2-bit and 3-bit problems. 

    Brownlee, Alexander Edward Ian; McCall, John; Christie, Lee A. (IEEE http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/CEC.2015.7257139, 2015-05)
    BROWNLEE, A. E. I., MCCALL, J. A. W. and CHRISTIE, L. A., 2015. Structural coherence of problem and algorithm: an analysis for EDAs on all 2-bit and 3-bit problems. In: 2015 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC): Proceedings. 25-28 May 2015. Piscataway, NJ: IEEE. Pp. 2066-2073.
    Metaheuristics assume some kind of coherence between decision and objective spaces. Estimation of Distribution algorithms approach this by constructing an explicit probabilistic model of high fitness solutions, the ...
