    Game Balanced Multi-factor Multicast Routing in Sensor Grid Networks2016In: Information Sciences, ISSN 0020-0255, E-ISSN 1872-6291, Vol. 367-368, p. 550-572Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In increasingly important sensor grid networks, multicast routing is widely used in date aggregation and distributed query processing. It requires multicast trees for efficient data transmissions. However, sensor nodes in such networks typically have limited resources and computing power. Efforts have been made to consider the space, energy and data factors separately to optimize the network performance. Considering these factors simultaneously, this paper presents a game balance based multi-factor multicast routing approach for sensor grid networks. It integrates the three factors into a unified model through a linear combination. The model is standardized and then solved theoretically by using the concept of game balance from game theory. The solution gives Nash equilibrium, implying a well balanced result for all the three factors. The theoretic results are implemented in algorithms for cluster formation, cluster core selection, cluster tree construction, and multicast routing. Extensive simulation experiments show that the presented approach gives mostly better overall performance than benchmark methods

    Minimum entropy of error principle in estimation1994In: Information Sciences, ISSN 0020-0255, E-ISSN 1872-6291, Vol. 79, no 1-2, p. 123-144Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The principle of minimum error entropy estimation as found in the work of Weidemann and Stear is reformulated as a problem of finding optimum locations of probability densities in a given mixture such that the resulting (differential) entropy is minimized. New results concerning the entropy lower bound are derived. Continuity of the entropy and attaining the minimum entropy are proved in the case where the mixture is finite. Some other examples and situations, in particular that of symmetric unimodal densities, are studied in more detail

    Some properties of generalized exponential entropies with applications to data compression1992In: Information Sciences, ISSN 0020-0255, E-ISSN 1872-6291, Vol. 62, no 1, p. 103-132Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    I. Csiszár discussed generalized entropies in his lecture at the Sixth Prague Conference on Information Theory. The authors emphasize that Csiszár noted the link between certain lower bounds for the quantization error and Rényi's differential entropy of order $\alpha$. Another important reference is the paper by L. L. Campbell where the concept of an exponential entropy was introduced. The authors investigate "several consequences that are of interest in the theory of data (or signal) compression". They also "investigate especially the exponential families of distributions, in particular the Miller-Thomas (or generalized Gaussian) family of distributions". The paper is a detailed discussion of the aforementioned problems coupled with examples and details of the possible applications. Exponential entropy is calculated for the uniform distribution, the univariate Gaussian distribution, the Laplace distribution, the Miller-Thomas distribution, an infinite-dimensional Gaussian exponential family, the Gauss-Laplace mixture and the multivariate Gaussian distribution. The extent of a distribution is given for the shape parameter in the Miller-Thomas distribution. Campbell's representation for E$[\alpha, 1 ; f]$ and the connection between an entropy series and data compression are discussed. A lower bound for the entropy of a partition (as defined in the paper) is given. Examples and proofs are illustrated with outputs from Mathematica.

    A Multi-Adaptive Particle Swarm Optimization for the Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows2019In: Information Sciences, ISSN 0020-0255, E-ISSN 1872-6291, Vol. 481, p. 311-329Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, a new variant of the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm is proposed for the solution of the Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows (VRPTW). Three different adaptive strategies are used in the proposed Multi-Adaptive Particle Swarm Optimization (MAPSO) algorithm. The first adaptive strategy concerns the use of a Greedy Randomized Adaptive Search Procedure (GRASP) that is applied when the initial solutions are produced and when a new solution is created during the iterations of the algorithm. The second adaptive strategy concerns the adaptiveness in the movement of the particles from one solution to another where a new adaptive strategy, the Adaptive Combinatorial Neighborhood Topology, is used. Finally, there is an adaptiveness in all parameters of the Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm. The algorithm starts with random values of the parameters and based on some conditions all parameters are adapted during the iterations. The algorithm was tested in the two classic sets of benchmark instances, the one that includes 56 instances with 100 nodes and the other that includes 300 instances with number of nodes varying between 200 and 1000. The algorithm was compared with other versions of PSO and with the best performing algorithms from the literature.

    Gradient-driven parking navigation using a continuous information potential field based on wireless sensor network2017In: Information Sciences, ISSN 0020-0255, E-ISSN 1872-6291, Vol. 408, p. 100-114Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Wireless sensor networks can support building and transportation system automation in numerous ways. An emerging application is to guide drivers to promptly locate vacant parking spaces in large parking structures during peak hours. This paper proposes efficient parking navigation via a continuous information potential field and gradient ascent method. Our theoretical analysis proves the convergence of a proposed algorithm and efficient convergence during the first and second steps of the algorithm to effectively prevent parking navigation from a gridlock situation. The empirical study demonstrates that the proposed algorithm performs more efficiently than existing algorithms.

    EPCBIR: An efficient and privacy-preserving content-based image retrieval scheme in cloud computing2017In: Information Sciences, ISSN 0020-0255, E-ISSN 1872-6291, Vol. 387, p. 195-204Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The content-based image retrieval (CBIR) has been widely studied along with the increasing importance of images in our daily life. Compared with the text documents, images consume much more storage and thus are very suitable to be stored on the cloud servers. The outsourcing of CBIR to the cloud servers can be a very typical service in cloud computing. For the privacy-preserving purposes, sensitive images, such as medical and personal images, need to be encrypted before being outsourced, which will cause the CBIR technologies in plaintext domain unusable. In this paper, we propose a scheme that supports CBIR over the encrypted images without revealing the sensitive information to the cloud server. Firstly, the feature vectors are extracted to represent the corresponding images. Then, the pre-filter tables are constructed with the locality-sensitive hashing to increase the search efficiency. Next, the feature vectors are protected by the secure k-nearest neighbor (kNN) algorithm. The security analysis and experiments show the security and efficiency of the proposed scheme.

    Behavior of crossover operators in NSGA-III for large-scale optimization problems2020In: Information Sciences, ISSN 0020-0255, E-ISSN 1872-6291, Vol. 509, p. 470-487Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditional multi-objective optimization evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs) do not usually meet the requirements for online data processing because of their high computational costs. This drawback has resulted in difficulties in the deployment of MOEAs for multi-objective, large-scale optimization problems. Among different evolutionary algorithms, non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm-the third version (NSGA-III) is a fairly new method capable of solving large-scale optimization problems with acceptable computational requirements. In this paper, the performance of three crossover operators of the NSGA-III algorithm is benchmarked using a large-scale optimization problem based on human electroencephalogram (EEG) signal processing. The studied operators are simulated binary (SBX), uniform crossover (UC), and single point (SI) crossovers. Furthermore, enhanced versions of the NSGA-III algorithm are proposed through introducing the concept of Stud and designing several improved crossover operators of SBX, UC, and SI. The performance of the proposed NSGA-III variants is verified on six large-scale optimization problems. Experimental results indicate that the NSGA-III methods with UC and UC-Stud (UCS) outperform the other developed variants.

    Vector coevolving particle swarm optimization algorithm2017In: Information Sciences, ISSN 0020-0255, E-ISSN 1872-6291, Vol. 394-395, p. 273-298Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we propose a novel vector coevolving particle swarm optimization algorithm (VCPSO). In VCPSO, the full dimension of each particle is first randomly partitioned into several sub-dimensions. Then, we randomly assign either one of our newly designed scalar operators or learning operators to update the values in each sub-dimension. The scalar operators are designed to enhance the population diversity and avoid premature convergence. In addition, the learning operators are designed to enhance the global and local search ability. The proposed algorithm is compared with several other classical swarm optimizers on thirty-three benchmark functions. Comprehensive experimental results show that VCPSO displays a better or comparable performance compared to the other algorithms in terms of solution accuracy and statistical results.
