Parallel Algorithms for Irregular Problems: State of the Art

Effective parallel strategies were chanced on to many difficulties. a few of them may be got immediately from sequential courses, utilizing compilers. even though, there's a huge type of difficulties - abnormal difficulties - that lack effective recommendations. abnormal ninety four - a workshop and summer time university equipped in Geneva - addressed the issues linked to the derivation of effective recommendations to abnormal difficulties.

Algorithms and Computation: 21st International Symposium, ISAAC 2010, Jeju, Korea, December 15-17, 2010, Proceedings, Part II

This booklet constitutes the refereed court cases of the twenty first foreign Symposium on Algorithms and Computation, ISAAC 2010, held in Jeju, South Korea in December 2010. The seventy seven revised complete papers awarded have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from 182 submissions for inclusion within the e-book. This quantity includes themes resembling approximation set of rules; complexity; info constitution and set of rules; combinatorial optimization; graph set of rules; computational geometry; graph coloring; mounted parameter tractability; optimization; on-line set of rules; and scheduling.

Algorithms and Architectures for Parallel Processing: 15th International Conference, ICA3PP 2015, Zhangjiajie, China, November 18-20, 2015, Proceedings, Part II

This 4 quantity set LNCS 9528, 9529, 9530 and 9531 constitutes the refereed complaints of the fifteenth overseas convention on Algorithms and Architectures for Parallel Processing, ICA3PP 2015, held in Zhangjiajie, China, in November 2015. The 219 revised complete papers provided including seventy seven workshop papers in those 4 volumes have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from 807 submissions (602 complete papers and 205 workshop papers).

20]. Additional details can be found in Erdal et al. [20]. Here the PSO, HS, and CS algorithms are used for obtaining the optimum slab thickness and two adjacent depths. Considering the effect of the initial solution on the final results and the stochastic nature of the metaheuristic algorithms, each algorithm is independently solved for five times with random initial designs. Then the best run is chosen for performance evaluation of each technique. The maximum number of box girder evaluations are considered as 7000 for the termination criteria.

Finally, some conclusions are derived in Sect. 5. © Springer International Publishing AG 2017 A.
