A Computational Intelligence Approach To System-Of-Systems Architecting Incorporating Multi-Objective Optimization, David M. Curry, Cihan H. Dagli Mar 2019

A Computational Intelligence Approach To System-Of-Systems Architecting Incorporating Multi-Objective Optimization, David M. Curry, Cihan H. Dagli

A computational intelligence approach to system-of-systems architecting is developed using multi-objective optimization. Such an approach yields a set of optimal solutions (the Pareto set) which has both advantages and disadvantages. The primary benefit is that a set of solutions provides a picture of the optimal solution space that a single solution cannot. The primary difficulty is making use of a potentially infinite set of solutions. Therefore, a significant part of this approach is the development of a method to model the solution set with a finite number of points allowing the architect to intelligently choose a subset of optimal solutions ...

Political Districting, the problem of partitioning a geographical region into sub-regions as electoral districts for political seat assignment, has been widely studied by researchers of both social and mathematical sciences. In the US, one Congressional representative is elected for each such district, and the Constitution requires compactness, geographical contiguity, and population balance for any such district. “Gerrymandering,” i.e., misuse of re-districting once every 10 years
(after each new census) to benefit a particular political party or current incumbent(s), has been practiced for decades, and political strongholds for individual parties have been formed. The vast majority, if not all ...
