The process of NSQBCO uses QBCO proposed in Section 3 as the evolutionary algorithm.
So that, for the need of clustering, Evolutionary Algorithm (EA) is employed this is pointed by means of pKwikCluster algorithm [70].
1) Population space: the population space is used to realize any evolutionary algorithm based on population, where individuals are evaluated and the selection, crossover, and mutation evolutionary operations are conducted.
The main question of the study can be formulated as whether an improvement in the strategy of evolutionary algorithm used for ANN's learning can also improve overall results of ANN synthesis.
In an evolutionary algorithm, running parameters usually include population size, crossover rate and mutation rate, while the frequently used termination parameters are target fitness value and maximum generation.
The chromosome encoding has a significant impact on the efficiency and the convergence rate of evolutionary algorithms.
Many authors had adopted the Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) like Simulated Annealing (SA), Genetic Algorithms (GA), as well as Swarm Intelligence (SI) techniques to deal with Multi-Objective Problems (El-Santawy, 2009).
Multiobjective Evolutionary Algorithms (MOEAS) combine evolutionary computation techniques to multiobjective optimization theory, and therefore offer the possibility of unlimited searching and complex spaces.
To achieve these results, instead of traditional AI techniques, an approach based on evolutionary algorithms and indirect encoding has been followed.
This paper explores a highly-efficient multiobjective optimization technique based on MOEA/D-GO (multiobjective evolutionary algorithm based on decomposition combined with enhanced genetic operators) for the multiobjective optimization of fragmented-type antenna, in which enhanced genetic operators are introduced.
