    • A Fuzzy Areal Assessment Approach for Potentially Contaminated Sites 

      Özdamar, Linet; Demirhan, M; Özpınar, A; Kılanç, B (PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, THE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, ENGLAND, 2000-04)
      This article describes a new fuzzy areal site assessment approach in the detection of contaminated zones within a site which is under environmental investigation. Conventional techniques utilized in this held are mostly ...
    • A Note On the Use of a Fuzzy Approach in Adaptive Partitioning Algorithms for Global Optimization 

      Demirhan, Melek; Özdamar, Linet (IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 445 HOES LANE, PISCATAWAY, NJ 08855-4141 USA, 1999-08)
      In global optimization, adaptive partitioning algorithms (APA) operate on the basis of partitioning the feasible region into subregions, sampling and evaluating each subregion, and selecting one or more subregions for ...
    • Comparison of Partition Evaluation Measures in an Adaptive Partitioning Algorithm for Global Optimization 

      Özdamar, Linet; Demirhan, M (ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, PO BOX 211, 1000 AE AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 2001-01-01)
      An adaptive partitioning algorithm with random search is proposed to locate the global optimum of multimodal functions. Partitioning algorithms divide the feasible region into nonoverlapping partitions in order to restrict ...
    • Experiments with New Stochastic Global Optimization Search Techniques 

      Özdamar, Linet; Demirhan, M (PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, THE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, ENGLAND, 2000-08)
      In this paper several probabilistic search techniques are developed for global optimization under three heuristic classifications: simulated annealing, clustering methods and adaptive partitioning algorithms. The algorithms ...
