High Performance Discovery in Time Series: Techniques and Case Studies

Time-series data—data arriving in time order, or an information stream—can be present in fields corresponding to physics, finance, song, networking, and clinical instrumentation. Designing quick, scalable algorithms for studying unmarried or a number of time sequence may end up in clinical discoveries, clinical diagnoses, and maybe gains.

Algorithms are referred to as iterative if most of their work is done by cyclic repetition of one main loop. In the context of this book, an iterative optimization algorithm starts with the first step t = 0. The value t ∈ N0 is the index of the iteration currently performed by the algorithm and t + 1 refers to the following step. 1. In some optimization algorithms like genetic algorithms, for instance, iterations are referred to as generations. There often exists a well-defined relation between the number of performed solution candidate evaluations τ and the index of the current iteration t in an optimization process: Many global optimization algorithms generate and evaluate a certain number of individuals per generation.

Models of the environment in which we can test and explore the properties of the potential solutions, like • a map on which the Artificial Ant will move which is driven by the evolved program, • an abstraction from the environment in which the skyscraper will be built, with wind blowing from several directions, • a model of the network in which the evolved distributed algorithms can run, • a physical model of air which blows through the turbine, • the model of an energy source the other pins which will be attached to the circuit together with the possible voltages on these pins.

The origin of the term fitness has been borrowed biology34 [46, 47] by the evolutionary algorithms community. When the first applications of genetic algorithms were developed, the focus was mainly on single-objective optimization. Back then, they called this single function fitness function and thus, set objective value ≡ fitness value. This point of view is obsolete in principle, yet you will find many contemporary publications that use this notion. This is partly due the fact that in simple problems with only one objective function, the old approach of using the objective values directly as fitness, i.
