EMF. Eclipse Modeling Framework
35,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Eclpise Modeling Framework (EMF) is a framework and code generation facility that lets you define a model in any of these forms--Java interfaces, UML diagram, or XML Schema. EMF doesn't require a completely different methodology or any sophisticated modeling tools. All you need to get started with EMF are the Eclipse Java Development Tools. EMF relates modeling concepts directly to their implementations, thereby bringing to Eclipse-and Java developers in general-the benefits of modeling with a low cost of entry. Unlike most tools of this type, EMF is truly integrated with and tuned for efficient programming. It answers the often-asked question, "Should I model or should I program?" with a resounding, "Both." This book, written by the lead architects of EMF, provides both an introduction and tutorial to how to leverage and work with this powerful framework. In addition to the new coverage (see overflow page) this book provides: · A basic overview of the most important concepts in EMF and modeling. · Analysis of the most important framework classes and generator patterns including insightful discussions of various design alternatives. · Examples of many common framework customizations and programming techniques. Product Description EMF: Eclipse Modeling Framework Dave Steinberg Frank Budinsky Marcelo Paternostro Ed Merks Series Editors: Erich Gamma . Lee Nackman .

An improved swarm-based optimization algorithm from the Bees Algorithm family for solving complex optimization problems is proposed. The algorithm performs a form of exploitative local search combined with random exploratory global search. This thesis details the development and optimization of this algorithm and demonstrates its robustness. The development includes a new method of tuning the Bees Algorithm called Meta Bees Algorithm and the functionality of the proposed method is compared to the standard Bees Algorithm and to a range of state-of-the-art optimisation algorithms. A new fitness evaluation method has been developed to enable the Bees Algorithm to solve a stochastic optimisation problem. The new modified Bees Algorithm was tested on the optimisation of parameter values for the Ant Colony Optimisation algorithm when solving Travelling Salesman Problems. Finally, the Bees Algorithm has been adapted and employed to solve complex combinatorial problems. The algorithm has been combined with two neighbourhood operators to solve such problems. The performance of the proposed Bees Algorithm has been tested on a number of travelling salesman problems.

FOSTERING CREATIVITY

The present study used the method of meta-analysis to synthesize the empirical research on the effects of intervention techniques for fostering creativity. Overall, the average effect sizes of all types of creativity training were sizable, and their effectiveness could be generalized across age levels and beyond school settings. Generally, among these training programs, Creative Problem Solving spent the least training time and gained the highest training effects on creativity scores. In addition, Other Attitudes programs, which presumed to motivate or facilitate the creativity motivation, also presented sizable effect size as other types of creativity training programs. As for the issue of creativity ability vs. skills, this analysis did not support the notion that figural components of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking might be measuring the relatively stable aspects of creativity. Because the figural form of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking did not obtain the lowest effect size, the results indicated that the view of multi-manifestation of creativity is a more plausible explanation.

This book presents several dynamic models and meta- models in order to evaluate the quality of vibration isolation in a motorcycle. All models are used to solve the engine mount optimization problem so as to minimize the forces transmitted to the frame while meeting packaging constraints. This book is divided into three main sections. The first section develops mathematical models to capture the quality of vibration isolation in a motorcycle. The second section solves the optimization problem using the models developed in the first section. The third section develops meta-models from the theoretical models in order to simplify the governing model and reduce computational effort required for solving the optimization problem. Several examples are presented throughout the book. The models and techniques presented in this book can be used for the design and analysis of passive vibration isolation systems for motorcycles. The meta-modeling techniques developed in this book yield simplified input-output relationships between variables of interest, providing a better understanding of the sensitivity of vibration isolation to the governing variables.

During the past decades, optimization has become a very important research topic for engineers and also for scientists. Optimization techniques have been becoming one of the most important factors in obtaining the most optimal solution for solving the problem in Construction, Industrial, Mechanical, and other engineering fields. This research proposes a hybrid model of a new and adopted searching algorithm from Computer Science, named Grover Algorithm with one of new established meta-heuristic algorithm, RSSA (Reduced Space Searching Algorithm). The combination of both algorithms is validated by solving multiple peak functions. The traditional Genetic Algorithm (GA) is used as a standard of comparison in appraising the RSSA-Grover result. Simulation result shows that RSSA-Grover performed better than GA due to its accuracy. Furthermore, this proposed algorithm is successfully applied to solve the real case of Tower Crane location selection, whose objective is to find the minimum duration due to cost minimizing, concealed by abundant constraints and decision variables.

Economical, managerial, engineering, and natural systems are often represented by nonlinear equations and inequalities, using discrete and continuous variables. Global Optimization provides methodologies to find the global solutions for the prescriptive models that attempt to describe, predict, and optimize their behavior. OQGRG, the algorithm presented in this book, was developed to solve problems in this large target class of mixed integer, nonlinear, constrained optimization models that often have multiple local optima. OQGRG is a multi-start, 2-stage, global optimization algorithm that combines the efficiency of a broad meta-heuristic search and the power of a reduced gradient nonlinear solver. The effectiveness of the algorithm is demonstrated by solving a large set of test problems.
