To avoid this bad behavior of generating explosion sparks, EFWA proposed a new process to compute a new and different offset displacement for each explosion sparks [s.sub.i] .
To avoid the problem of mapping operator in the traditional algorithm of firework, a new uniform random mapping strategy is proposed in EFWA for the out-of-band sparks which exceed the search space [0,2[pi]].
To speed the selection process, EFWA applies a simple selection method, which is referred to as the elitism-random selection method .
As shown in (17), if the position of individuals exceeds the feasible scope, it is adjusted by using the mapping criteria in the EFWA
The Educational Foundation for Women in Accounting (EFWA
) awards scholarships to women who are pursuing Accounting degrees at the undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate levels.
The interval of each membership function in Table 1 is used by the EFWA for interval analysis to compute the result, [bar.r].
* Description of the EFWA algorithm (Lee and Park, 1997)
Before starting the EFWA algorithm, it is necessary to choose two values for [alpha], namely 0 and 1, as the initial input values.
The EFWA just announced funding for a second Woman-in-Transition--formerly known as a Displaced Homemaker--Scholarship.
Working with the American Society of Women Accountants and the American Woman's Society of CPAs, the EFWA also provides grants for position papers.
To assess the performance of DA, it is compared with BA, EFWA, and PSO.
The parameters of DA, BA, EFWA, and PSO are setting as Table 1, and the settings are applied in all the comparison experiments.
