This paper aims to formally define a concept of interpretability according to natural language of a logical theory, and show advances for demonstrating that the logic system called Compensatory Fuzzy Logic is interpretable. A logical theory is interpretable according to natural language if the calculus...

This paper describes the application of an evolutionary optimization method to design satellite constellation for continuous regional coverage without intersatellite links. This configuration, called mutual coverage, is related to some technical limitations that exist on small satellite technology. The...

In this paper, a modified version of nature-inspired optimization algorithm called Black Hole has been proposed. The proposed algorithm is population based and consists of genetic algorithm operators in order to improve optimization results. The proposed method enhances Black Hole algorithm performance...

This paper presents a fuzzy multi-criteria decision-making (FMCDM) approach based on cloud model and prospect theory. In addition, a reference point selection method is developed according to the evaluations of the potential customer or similar consumers regarding certain items. An example of purchasing...

Currently Mutual Information has been widely used in pattern recognition and feature selection problems. It may be used as a measure of redundancy between features as well as a measure of dependency evaluating the relevance of each feature. Since marginal densities of real datasets are not usually known...

We present a multi-objective evolutionary algorithm to exploit a medium-sized fuzzy outranking relation to derive a partial order of classes of alternatives (we call it RP-NSGA-II). To measure the performance of RP-NSGA-II, we present an empirical study over a set of simulated multi-criteria ranking...
