• Parallel iprialist competitive algorithm: a method for global optimization 

    Alavi, Seyed Enayatallah; Naderan-Tahan, Marjan; Aminian, Mohamad (БНТУ, 2014)
    A novel parallel imperialist competitive algorithm (PICA) is presented for global optimization. The ICA is a new meta-heuristic optimization developed based on a socio-politically motivated strategy and contains two main steps: the movement of the colonies and the imperialistic competition. Here different parallel approach is utilized to improve the movement step of the algorithm. ...
