1. An Ant-Colony Optimization Clustering Model for Cellular Automata Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks

Aref Safari

Volume 12, Issue 2 , Autumn 2020, , Pages 139-147

Abstract
  High efficient routing is an important issue for the design of wireless sensor network (WSN) protocols to meet the severe hardware and resource constraints. This paper presents an inclusive evolutionary reinforcement method. The proposed approach is a combination of Cellular Automata (CA) and Ant Colony ...  Read More

2. Flying Squirrel Optimizer (FSO): A novel SI-based optimization algorithm for engineering problems

Gholamreza Azizyan; Farid Miarnaeimi; Mohsen Rashki; Naser Shabakhty

Volume 11, Issue 2 , Autumn 2019, , Pages 177-205

Abstract
  This paper provides a novel meta-heuristic optimization algorithm. The behaviors of flying squirrels in the nature are the main inspiration of this research. These behaviors include flying from tree to tree and walking on the ground or on a tree branch to find food. They also contact each other with ...  Read More

3. Optimal Design of Open Channel Sections Using PSO Algorithm

Mohsen Monadi; Mirali Mohammadi; Hamed Taghizadeh

Volume 11, Issue 2 , Autumn 2019, , Pages 207-215

Abstract
  This paper applies an evolutionary algorithm, the particle swarm optimization (PSO), to design the optimum open channel section. Depth, channel side slope and bottom width are considered as the variables for rectangular, triangular and trapezoidal channels, respectively. The objective function is minimizing ...  Read More

4. Stochastic Facility Layout Planning Problem: A Metaheuristic and Case Study

Nima Moradi

Volume 11, Issue 2 , Autumn 2019, , Pages 229-241

Abstract
  Facility layout is one of the most important Operations Management problems due to its direct impact on the financial performance of both private and public firms. Facility layout problem (FLP) with stochastic parameters, unequal area facilities, and grid system modeling is named GSUA-STFLP. This problem ...  Read More

5. MOEICA: Enhanced multi-objective optimization based on imperialist competitive algorithm

AmirAli Nazari; ali deihimi

Volume 9, Issue 1 , Spring 2017, , Pages 21-37

Abstract
  In this paper, a multi-objective enhanced imperialist competitive algorithm (MOEICA) is presented. The main structures of the original ICA are employed while some novel approaches are also developed. Other than the non-dominated sorting and crowding distance methods which are used as the main tools for ...  Read More

6. Optimal Scheduled Unit Commitment Considering Wind Uncertainty Using Cuckoo Search Algorithm

Saniya Maghsudlu; sirus mohammadi

Volume 8, Issue 1 , Spring 2016, , Pages 17-27

Abstract
  In this paper, a new method to review the role of wind units as an energy-producer in the scheduling problem of unit commitment is presented. Today, renewable energy sources due to lack of environmental pollution, absence of dependence on fossil fuels, and consequently a very low marginal cost, have ...  Read More
