Ying-Ping Chen: Extending the Scalability of Linkage Learning Genetic Algorithms
Genetic algorithms (GAs) are powerful search techniques based on principles of evolution and widely applied to solve problems in many disciplines. However, most GAs employed in practice nowadays are unable to learn genetic linkage and suffer from the linkage problem. The linkage learning genetic algorithm (LLGA) was proposed to tackle the linkage problem with several specially designed mechanisms. While the LLGA performs much better on badly scaled problems than simple GAs, it does not work well on uniformly scaled problems as other competent GAs. Therefore, we need to understand why it is so and need to know how to design a better LLGA or whether there are certain limits of such a linkage learning process. This book aims to gain better understanding of the LLGA in theory and to improve the LLGA's performance in practice. It starts with a survey of the existing genetic linkage learning techniques and describes the steps and approaches taken to tackle the research topics, including using promoters, developing the convergence time model, and adopting subchromosomes.
Sharp, cogent, and provocative--and consistently noted as one of the most valuable business ideas of all time--The Innovator's Dilemma is the book no manager, leader, or entrepreneur should be without. Has trouble being close to others? Now in its second edition, Singing and Teaching Singing: A Holistic Approach to Classical Voice improves on a predecessor that has proven to be a resounding hit for singers and their teachers, speech-language pathologists, laryngologists, practitioners of Alexander, Yoga, Feldenkrais, and others, and, increasingly, as an adopted text for instructors and students in voice, singing, and performing arts courses. For this edition, all chapters have been revised and updated, with particular attention to the Accent Method of breathing as a highly effective remedial and training technique appropriate for all singers and students; new research on use of the transverse abdominis Extending the Scalability of Linkage Learning Genetic Algorithms download book muscles in vocal support strategies; a complete revision and updating of the case studies; a new description of the "ultimate tongue release" exercise; and the addition of the "puffy cheeks" exercise. Eminently practical, with numerous case examples and two-color illustrations, Janice Chapman's book remains a highly personal and accessible approach to the world of the singer and the teacher.Aside from being an internationally renowned singing teacher, researcher, lecturer, and educator, she is able to draw on her experiences as a singer with some of the world's leading opera companies, to present a teaching technique specifically focusing on voice in the areas of classical and opera singing.
