Innovations and Developments of Swarm Intelligence Applications

Innovations and Developments of Swarm Intelligence Applications

Author: Shi, Yuhui

Number of pages: 398

The natural social behavior of large groups of animals, such as flocks of birds, schools of fish, or colonies of ants has fascinated scientists for hundreds of years, if not longer, due to the intricate nature of their interactions and their ability to move and work together seemingly effortlessly. Innovations and Developments of Swarm Intelligence Applications explores the emerging realm of swarm intelligence, which finds its basis in the natural social behavior of animals. The study and application of this swarm behavior has led scientists to a new world of research as ways are found to apply this behavior to independent intelligent agents, creating complex solutions for real world applications. Worldwide contributions have been seamlessly combined in this comprehensive reference, providing a wealth of new information for researchers, academicians, students, and engineers.

Hierarchical Matrices: Algorithms and Analysis

Hierarchical Matrices: Algorithms and Analysis

Author: Wolfgang Hackbusch

Number of pages: 511

This self-contained monograph presents matrix algorithms and their analysis. The new technique enables not only the solution of linear systems but also the approximation of matrix functions, e.g., the matrix exponential. Other applications include the solution of matrix equations, e.g., the Lyapunov or Riccati equation. The required mathematical background can be found in the appendix. The numerical treatment of fully populated large-scale matrices is usually rather costly. However, the technique of hierarchical matrices makes it possible to store matrices and to perform matrix operations approximately with almost linear cost and a controllable degree of approximation error. For important classes of matrices, the computational cost increases only logarithmically with the approximation error. The operations provided include the matrix inversion and LU decomposition. Since large-scale linear algebra problems are standard in scientific computing, the subject of hierarchical matrices is of interest to scientists in computational mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering.

Finite Deflection, Discrete Element Analysis of Shells

Finite Deflection, Discrete Element Analysis of Shells

Author: Fred K. Bogner

Number of pages: 176

A discrete element analysis method for predicting the nonlinear response of thin elastic shells is presented. The displacement patterns for a shell element, the edges of which must be parallel to orthogonal curvilinear coordinates, are expressed in terms of products of one-dimensional Hermite interpolation polynomials and undetermined nodal displacement parameters. Geometric admissibility of the displacement state of an assemblage of these discrete elements is conveniently satisfied. Special treatment is given to the particular cases of flat rectangular plate and circular cylindrical shell discrete elements. The use of a potential energy principle permits the incorporation of geometric nonlinearity, thus providing the capability for predicting finite displacements and post-buckling behavior. Numerical solutions are obtained by direct minimization of the total discretized potential energy. Several numerical examples, both linear and nonlinear, which indicate the effectiveness of the analysis are considered. The applicability of this discrete element analysis method to predicting the elastic post-buckling behavior of integrally stiffened shells is provided by the assumed element...
