    A New Hybrid Feature Selection Method Using T-test and Fitness Function

    Husam Ali Abdulmohsin1,*, Hala Bahjat Abdul Wahab2, Abdul Mohssen Jaber Abdul Hossen3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.68, No.3, pp. 3997-4016, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.014840


    Feature selection (FS) (or feature dimensional reduction, or feature optimization) is an essential process in pattern recognition and machine learning because of its enhanced classification speed and accuracy and reduced system complexity. FS reduces the number of features extracted in the feature extraction phase by reducing highly correlated features, retaining features with high information gain, and removing features with no weights in classification. In this work, an FS filter-type statistical method is designed and implemented, utilizing a t-test to decrease the convergence between feature subsets by calculating the quality of performance value (QoPV). The approach utilizes

    Feature Selection with a Local Search Strategy Based on the Forest Optimization Algorithm

    Tinghuai Ma1,*, Honghao Zhou1, Dongdong Jia1, Abdullah Al-Dhelaan2, Mohammed Al-Dhelaan2, Yuan Tian3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.121, No.2, pp. 569-592, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.07758

    Abstract Feature selection has been widely used in data mining and machine learning. Its objective is to select a minimal subset of features according to some reasonable criteria so as to solve the original task more quickly. In this article, a feature selection algorithm with local search strategy based on the forest optimization algorithm, namely FSLSFOA, is proposed. The novel local search strategy in local seeding process guarantees the quality of the feature subset in the forest. Next, the fitness function is improved, which not only considers the classification accuracy, but also considers the size of More >

    Construction of Integral Objective Function/Fitness Function of Multi-Objective/Multi-Disciplinary Optimization

    Z. Q. Zhu1, Z. Liu1, X. L. Wang1, R. X. Yu1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.6, No.6, pp. 567-576, 2004, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2004.006.567

    Abstract To extend an available mono-objective optimization method to multi-objective/multi-disciplinary optimization, the construction of a suitable integral objective function (in gradient based deterministic method-DM) or fitness function (in genetic algorithm-GA) is important. An auto-adjusting weighted object optimization (AWO) method in DM is suggested to improve the available weighted sum method (linear combined weighted object optimizationLWO method). Two formulae of fitness function in GA are suggested for two kinds of design problems. Flow field solution is obtained by solving Euler equations. Electromagnetic field solution is obtained by solving Maxwell equations. Bi-disciplinary optimization computation is carried out by More >

    A Highly Effective DPA Attack Method Based on Genetic Algorithm

    Shuaiwei Zhang1, Xiaoyuan Yang1,*, Weidong Zhong1, Yujuan Sun2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.56, No.2, pp. 325-338, 2018, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2018.03611

    Abstract As one of the typical method for side channel attack, DPA has become a serious trouble for the security of encryption algorithm implementation. The potential capability of DPA attack induces researchers making a lot of efforts in this area, which significantly improved the attack efficiency of DPA. However, most of these efforts were made based on the hypothesis that the gathered power consumption data from the target device were stable and low noise. If large deviation happens in part of the power consumption data sample, the efficiency of DPA attack will be reduced rapidly. In… More >

    Convergence Properties of Genetic Algorithmsin a Wide Variety of Noisy Environments


    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.14, No.1, pp. 35-60, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.014.035

    Abstract Random noise perturbs objective functions in practical optimization problems, and genetic algorithms (GAs) have been proposed as an effective optimization tool for dealing with noisy objective functions. In this paper, we investigate GAs in a variety of noisy environments where fitness perturbation can occur in any form-for example, fitness evaluations can be concurrently disturbed by additive and multiplicative noise. We reveal the convergence properties of GAs by constructing and analyzing a Markov chain that explicitly models the evolution of the algorithms in noisy environments. We compute the one-step transition probabilities of the Markov chain and… More >
