Fuzzy Modeling of Optimal Initial Drug Prescription

This paper focused on a fuzzy approach in migraineurs drug prescription. There is no denying that medicine data records are mixed with uncertainty and probability so all methods concerning migraine drug prescription should be considered in fuzzy environment and designed according to the knowledge of an expert specialist. Overall it seems logical to propose fuzzy approach which could cover all uncertainties. According to fuzzy rule base concepts which are obtained by co-operation of an expert, fuzzy control has been used to model drug prescription system. Finally clinical experiences are used to confirm efficacy of drug prescription model. It should be considered that in most cases this disease may cause health social problems as well as financial obstacle for the companies and in upper stage for governments as a result of reduce work time among the employees. So prescribing optimal initial drug to make the disease stable is obligatory. With the corporation of experts 25 rule bases are introduced and tested on 50 different patient records, result shows that the accuracy of model is 94 %

Optimization Strategy Based on Immune Mechanism for Controller Parameters

Control quality of the controller depends on correct tuning of control parameter, and it is directly related to the control effect of whole control system. Aimed at the puzzle that the parameter of controller has been difficult to tune, the paper proposed a sort of optimization model based on immune mechanism for tuning of controller parameters. Firstly it defined the antibody, antigen and affinity of tuning parameter, and secondly explored the process of parameter tuning based on immune mechanism in detail, then explained the tuning method by means of optimizing parameters of PID controller as well as the seven parameters of HSIC controller. Finally it took a high-order process control as the example, and made the simulation to a large time delay process, and to a highly non-minimum phase process as well as HSIC controller. The simulation experiment results demonstrated that it is better in comparison with some other tuning methods for dynamic and steady performance. The research result shows that the proposed method is more effective for controller parameter tuning.

Posynomial Geometric Programming with Fuzzy Coefficients

In practice, there are many problems in which all decision parameters are fuzzy numbers, and such problems are usually solved by either possibilistic programming or multiobjective programming methods. Unfortunately, all these methods have shortcomings. In this note, using the concept of comparison of fuzzy numbers, we introduce a very effective method for solving these problems. Then we propose a new method for solving posynomial geometric programming problems with fuzzy coefficients.

Affine SIFT Based on Particle Swarm Optimization

As for ASIFT, ASIFT has been proven to be invariant to image scaling and rotation. Specially, ASIFT enables matching of images with severe view point change and outperforms significantly the state-of-the-art methods. It accomplished this by simulating several views of the original images. However, we found that the simulated parameters are continuous, namely, transformations acquired by ASIFT cant express the real relationship between reference and input images. Therefore, a particle swarm optimization based sample strategy is presented in this paper. The basic idea is to search the best transform in continuous parameter space. Experimental results show that the proposed PSO-ASIFT algorithm could get more matches compared with the original ASIFT and SIFT.

Genetic Quantum Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithm for Solving Traveling Salesman Problems

This paper presents a Genetic Quantum Particle Swarm Optimization (GQPSO) algorithm to solve Traveling Salesman Problems (TSPs). This algorithm is proposed based on the concepts of swap operator and swap sequence by introducing crossover, mutation and inverse operators in Genetic Algorithm (GA). Our algorithm overcomes such drawbacks as low convergence rate and local optimum when using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) or Quantum Particle Swarm Optimization (QPSO) algorithm to solve TSP. The experiment result shows that GQPSO algorithm has very powerful global search ability and its convergence rate is sharply accelerated compared to that of QPSO algorithm. GQPSO algorithm will have very good application prospects in solving combinational optimization problems.

A New Similarity Measures on Vague Sets

Vague set is a valid tool for processing uncertain information. The similarity measure of two uncertain patterns is important for intelligent reasoning. It is also a key problem to measure the similarity of vague values or vague sets in vague information processing systems. In this paper, according to the theory of similarity measure between intervals, it is shown that four factors influencing vague sets and vague values should be taken into account while calculating the similarity degree. Some existing similarity measures are reviewed and compared. Some faults of existed methods are pointed out. A new method for similarity measures between vague sets (values) is put forward, and is proved to satisfy some rules. The validity and advantage of this method are illustrated by an example.

A Revised Grey Model for Fluctuating Interval Fuzzy Series Forecasting

Grey models are built on the basis of the real number series, not the fuzzy number series. In this paper, GM (1, 1), a basic prediction model of grey models, is generalized to the fuzzy number series. GM (1, 1) based on interval fuzzy number series [IFGM (1, 1)] is proposed firstly, which is suitable for the prediction of interval number series with weak fluctuation. In order to extend its applicable range, a revised model is then proposed. Markov prediction theory is applied to revising IFGM (1, 1) to make it suitable for the fluctuating interval number series. The general development tendency of the raw series is embodied by grey model and the random fluctuation is reflected by Markov prediction. The first practical example has shown IFGM (1, 1) is effective for small sample and weak fluctuating series. The consumer price indexes of China from 1996 to 2009 are taken as an example of fluctuating interval number series. Revised IFGM (1, 1), IFGM (1, 1), double exponential smoothing method and autoregressive moving average (ARMA) are all applied to it. Comparison of the results has shown the revised IFGM (1, 1)has the best precision than the other models.

Contingent Valuation of Non-Market Goods Based on Intuitionistic Fuzzy Clustering: Part I

In order to value the non-market goods, we consider the uncertain preference of the respondents for non-market goods, individual often have trouble trading off the good or amenity against a monetary measure. Valuation in these situations can best be described as fuzzy in terms of the amenity being valued. We move away from a probabilistic representation of uncertainty and propose the use of intuitionistic fuzzy contingent valuation. That is to say we could apply intuitionistic fuzzy logic to contingent valuation. Since intuitionistic fuzzy sets could provide the information of the membership degree and the nonmembership degree, it has more expression and flexibility better than traditional fuzzy sets in processing uncertain information data. In this paper, we apply intuitionistic fuzzy logic to contingent, developing an intuitionistic fuzzy clustering and interval intuitionistic fuzzy clustering approach for combining preference uncertainty. We develop an intuitionistic fuzzy random utility maximization framework where the perceived utility of each individual is intuitionistic fuzzy in the sense that an individual’s utility belong to each cluster to some degree. Both the willingness to pay (WTP) and willingness not to pay (WNTP) measures we obtain using intuitionistic fuzzy approach are below those using standard probability methods.

Use of Partial Supervised Model of Fuzzy Clustering Iteration to Mid- and Long-Term Hydrological Forecasting

Most operational hydrological forecasting systems produce deterministic forecasts and most research in operational hydrology has been devoted to finding the “best” forecasts rather than quantifying the predictive uncertainty. With the complex non-linear relation between forecasting indicators and forecasting object, it’s difficult to get forecasting results with high quality from satisfied forecasting model. Therefore, based on fuzzy clustering algorithm, a partial supervised model of fuzzy clustering iteration is presented with the history data supervised and the forecasting precision is improved. The forecasting model is distinct in mathematic and physical conception, and is of good dispersion. A case study of Yamadu station in Xinjiang, China, is given to show the effectiveness of the model in mid-and long- term hydrological forecasting.

A Fuzzy Clustering Approach for TS Fuzzy Model Identification

In this paper, a fuzzy clustering approach for TS fuzzy model identification is presented. In the proposed method, the modified mountainx clustering algorithm is employed to determine the number of clusters. Secondly, the fuzzy c-regression model (FCRM) algorithm is used to obtain an optimal fuzzy partition matrix. As a result, the initial parameters can be determined by the optimal fuzzy partition. Finally, gradient descent algorithm is adopted to precisely adjust premise parameters and consequent parameters simultaneously. The simulation results reveal that the proposed algorithm can model an unknown system with a small number of fuzzy rules.

Model Recognition Orientated at Small Sample Data

System modeling is a prerequisite to understand object properties, while the chances are that an industrial site may come along with restricted conditions, leading to less experimental data acquired about the objects. In this case, the application of traditional statistical law of large numbers for modeling certainly will influence the identification precision. Aiming at the problems in recognition of small samples being not that high in precision, it is proposed to introduce the bootstrap-based re-sampling technique, upon which the original small sample data are expanded in order to meet the requirements of the statistical recognition method for sample quantity, so as to meet the requirements of precision. The simulation results showed that the extended sample model recognition accuracy is substantially higher than that of the original small sample. This illustrates the validity of the bootstrap-based re-sampling technique, working as an effective way for small sample data processing.

A New Fuzzy Clustering Validity Index with Strong Robustness

Cluster validity has been widely used to evaluate the fitness of partitions produced by fuzzy c-means (FCM) clustering algorithm. Many validity functions have been proposed for evaluating clustering results. Most of these popular validity measures do not work well for clusters with different fuzzy weighting exponent



and data with outliers at the same time. In this paper, we propose a new validity index for fuzzy clustering. This validity index is based on the compactness and separation measure. The compactness is defined by fuzzy Z-membership function based on the gold dividing point and separation is described by monotone linear function. The contrasting experimental results show that the proposed index works well.

Regional Economic Forecasting Combination Model Based on RAR+SVR

Regional economy has become a critical part in national economy system. Mastering its change is important for national economic decision-making. Yet many economic variables in regional economy system have characteristics of nonlinearity and instability, the result of forecasting achieved by traditional linear modeling and predicting technology doesn’t reach the demand of accuracy. Thus, a combination model based on Residual Auto-regressive and Support Vector Regression is proposed in this chapter. In the model the linear part of time series will be fitted by means of Residual Auto-regressive first, then the nonlinear part included in the residual will be draw by means of Support Vector Regression. The combination model helps to increase the accuracy of forecasting in regional economy system. At the end, a prediction of GDP in Guangdong province shows the efficiency of the model.

Random Fuzzy Unrepairable Warm Standby Systems

Usually, the lifetimes of components in operation and in warm standby are assumed to be random variables. The probability distributions of the random variables have crisp parameters. In many practical situations, the parameters are difficult to determine due to uncertainties and imprecision of data. So it is appropriate to assume the parameters to be fuzzy variables.

Finally, a numerical example is presented.

The Application of FHCE Based on GA in EHVT

Fuzzy Hierarchy Comprehensive Evaluation (FHCE) as a common evaluation method of the combination of qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis has been widely used in social life. At present, one of fuzzy comprehensive evaluation research difficulties is how to reasonably determine the weight of evaluation index. The main issue of analytic hierarchy process (AHP) in itself is to determine the each elements weight of judgment matrix which is artificially assigned, so it has highly subjective one-sidedness. In view of the above problems this paper attempts to propose a new model of FHCE, that is to structure judgment matrix according to interval scale of [1, 9] in AHP, and use the standard genetic algorithm (GA) to calculate each elements weight of judgment matrix.

We analyze the Markov chain underlying the considered queueing system and derive the generating functions of the system state, the orbit size and the system size distribution. Using probability generating function technique, some interesting and important performance measures are obtained. We also investigate the stochastic decomposition property and present some numerical examples.

Stability Analysis of T-S Fuzzy Systems with Knowledge on Membership Function Overlap

A new approach for reducing the conservativeness in stability analysis and design of continuous-time T-S fuzzy control systems is proposed in this paper. Based on a fuzzy Lyapunov function together with knowledge on membership function overlap, previous stability and stabilization conditions are relaxed by the proposed approach. Both the stability and the stabilization conditions are written as linear matrix inequality (LMI) problems. Two examples are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

Application of T-S Fuzzy Model in Candidate-well Selection for Hydraulic Fracturing

Hydraulic fracturing (HF) is the key technology of increasing production and injection for low permeable reservoirs. The candidate-well selection for HF is essential to oil and gas wells stimulation potential evaluation, which is crucial to improve fracturing operation efficiency and reduce HF investment risk. The candidate-well selection model is a high dimension, nonlinear, strong coupling, multi-input single-output system. However, the conventional methods, such as production performance comparisons can not be easy to use for this nonlinear model. As a solution, the advanced methods such as T-S models in this paper can be effectively used in the candidate-well selection for HF. First, the subtractive clustering (SC) algorithm is employed to partition the fuzzy space of the given input–output data, which is adopted as the initial premise structure and parameters. Second, the clusters obtained on the first stage are used to initialize the fuzzy c-means (FCM) algorithm, which can obtain optimal cluster number and cluster centers. Third, the consequent parameters are identified by using the orthogonal least-squares (OLS) algorithm. Finally, the proposed approach is successfully applied to candidate-well selection for HF in Hechuan gas field in Sichuan basin, and validation results have demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed method.
