    Ghica, DR; Alyahya, K (Interaction and Concurrency Experience, 2017-06)
    Game semantics is a powerful method of semantic analysis for programming languages. It gives mathematically accurate models ("fully abstract") for a wide variety of programming languages. Game semantic models are combinatorial ...
  • Network Function Virtualization in Dynamic Networks: A Stochastic Perspective 

    Cheng, X; Wu, Y; Min, G; Zomaya, A (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-09-24)
    As a key enabling technology for 5G network softwarization, Network Function Virtualization (NFV) provides an efficient paradigm to optimize network resource utility for the benefits of both network providers and users. ...
  • Data-driven multi-objective optimisation of coal-fired boiler combustion systems 

    Rahat, AAM; Chunlin, W; Everson, R; Fieldsend, J (Elsevier, 2018-08-09)
    Coal remains an important energy source. Nonetheless, pollutant emissions – in particular Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) – as a result of the combustion process in a boiler, are subject to strict legislation due to their damaging ...
  • Selection for Gaia across multiple scales 

    Lenton, TM; Daines, SJ; Dyke, JG; Nicholson, AE; Wilkinson, DM; Williams, HTP (Elsevier, 2018-07-02)
    Recently postulated mechanisms and models can help explain the enduring ‘Gaia’ puzzle of environmental regulation mediated by life. Natural selection can produce nutrient recycling at local scales and regulation of ...
  • Concept drift and anomaly detection in graph streams 

    Zambon, D; Alippi, C; Livi, L (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-03-09)
    Graph representations offer powerful and intuitive ways to describe data in a multitude of application domains. Here, we consider stochastic processes generating graphs and propose a methodology for detecting changes in ...
  • Bridging Elementary Landscapes and a Geometric Theory of Evolutionary Algorithms: First Steps 

    Diez García, Marcos; Moraglio, Alberto (Springer, 2018)
    Based on a geometric theory of evolutionary algorithms, it was shown that all evolutionary algorithms equipped with a geometric crossover and no mutation operator do the same kind of convex search across representations, ...
  • Program trace optimization 

    Moraglio, A; McDermott, J (Springer, 2018)
    We introduce Program Trace Optimization (PTO), a system for `universal heuristic optimization made easy'. This is achieved by strictly separating the problem from the search algorithm. New problem definitions and new generic ...
