Multi-behaviors coordination controller design with enzymatic numerical P systems for robots (2020)
Journal Article
Wang, X., Zhang, G., Gou, X., Paul, P., Neri, F., Rong, H., …Zhang, H. (in press). Multi-behaviors coordination controller design with enzymatic numerical P systems for robots. Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering,

Membrane computing models are parallel and distributed natural computing models. These models are often referred to as P systems. This paper proposes a novel multi-behaviors coordination controller model using enzymatic numerical P systems for autono...

A membrane parallel rapidly-exploring random tree algorithm for robotic motion planning (2020)
Journal Article
Pérez-Hurtado, I., Martínez-Del-Amor, M. A., Zhang, G., Neri, F., & Pérez-Jiménez, M. J. (2020). A membrane parallel rapidly-exploring random tree algorithm for robotic motion planning. Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering, 27(2), 121-138. https://doi.org/10.3233/ica-190616

In recent years, incremental sampling-based motion planning algorithms have been widely used to solve robot motion planning problems in high-dimensional configuration spaces. In particular, the Rapidly-exploring Random Tree (RRT) algorithm and its as... Read More about A membrane parallel rapidly-exploring random tree algorithm for robotic motion planning.

Editorial of the special issue on differential evolution (2019)
Journal Article
Brest, J., & Neri, F. (2019). Editorial of the special issue on differential evolution. Swarm and Evolutionary Computation, 50, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.swevo.2019.100583

Differential Evolution (DE) is a population-based metaheuristic for addressing optimization problems [[1], [2], [3]]. The algorithm processes a population of candidate solutions by performing two operations. The first operation, namely mutation, is t...

© 2018 Elsevier Inc. This article proposes a simplistic algorithmic framework, namely hyperSPAM, composed of three search algorithms for addressing continuous optimisation problems. The Covariance Matrix Adaptation Evolution Strategy (CMAES) is activ... Read More about HyperSPAM: A study on hyper-heuristic coordination strategies in the continuous domain.

A study on rotation invariance in differential evolution (2018)
Journal Article
Caraffini, F., & Neri, F. (2019). A study on rotation invariance in differential evolution. Swarm and Evolutionary Computation, 50, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.swevo.2018.08.013

Epistasis is the correlation between the variables of a function and is a challenge often posed by real-world optimisation problems. Synthetic benchmark problems simulate a highly epistatic problem by performing a so-called problem's rotation. Mut... Read More about A study on rotation invariance in differential evolution.

Algorithmic design issues in adaptive differential evolution schemes: Review and taxonomy (2018)
Journal Article
