#### Properties and algorithms of the (n, k)-star graphs

(Brock University, 2009-01-28)

The (n, k)-star interconnection network was proposed in 1995 as an attractive alternative
to the n-star topology in parallel computation. The (n, k )-star has significant
advantages over the n-star which itself was ...

#### Extending relAPS to first order logic

(Brock University, 2011-03-08)

RelAPS is an interactive system assisting in proving relation-algebraic theorems.
The aim of the system is to provide an environment where a user can perform a
relation-algebraic proof similar to doing it using pencil ...

#### Automatic evolution of conceptual building architectures

(2012-04-03)

This thesis describes research in which genetic programming is used to automatically
evolve shape grammars that construct three dimensional models
of possible external building architectures. A completely automated ...

#### The Salmon Algorithm - A New Population Based Search Metaheuristic

(Brock University, 2012-03-02)

This thesis introduces the Salmon Algorithm, a search meta-heuristic which can be used for a variety of combinatorial optimization problems. This algorithm is loosely based on the path finding behaviour of salmon swimming ...

#### Genetic programming for the RoboCup Rescue Simulation System

(Brock University, 2011-03-08)

The Robocup Rescue Simulation System (RCRSS) is a dynamic system of multi-agent interaction, simulating a large-scale urban disaster scenario. Teams of rescue agents are charged with the tasks of minimizing civilian ...

#### Generating finite integral relation algebras

(Brock University, 2011-03-08)

Relation algebras and categories of relations in particular have proven to be extremely useful as a fundamental tool in mathematics and computer science. Since relation algebras are Boolean algebras with some well-behaved ...

#### ReAlM - a system to manipulate relations

(Brock University, 2010-10-26)

Given a heterogeneous relation algebra R, it is well known that the algebra of matrices with coefficient from R is relation algebra with relational sums that is not
necessarily finite. When a ...

#### Bio-inspired optimization & sampling technique for side-chain packing in MCCE

(Brock University, 2010-10-26)

The prediction of proteins' conformation helps to understand their exhibited functions,
allows for modeling and allows for the possible synthesis of the studied protein. Our
research is focused on ...

#### Comparison of classification ability of hyperball algorithms to neural network and k-nearest neighbour algorithms

(2012-04-03)

The main focus of this thesis is to evaluate and compare Hyperbalilearning
algorithm (HBL) to other learning algorithms. In this work HBL is
compared to feed forward artificial neural networks using back propagation
learning, ...

#### Formalizing affordances in situation

(2012-04-03)

The representation of a perceptual scene by a computer is usually limited
to numbers representing dimensions and colours. The theory of affordances
attempted to provide a new way of representing an environment, with ...
