Optimization Models for Turbine Location in Wind Farms
(The University of Bergen, 2012-05-24)
The topic of this thesis is wind farm optimization. The goal is to be able to decide where to install wind turbines within a given region in order to maximize the power output in two different scenarios: For a fixed number ...
Formulas as programs
Alma-0 is a programming language supporting declarative programming, which combines the advantages of imperative and logic programming paradigms. This work explores declarative programming by extending the interpretation ...
On a New Method for Derivative Free Optimization
A new derivative-free optimization method for unconstrained optimization of partially separable functions is presented. Using average curvature information computed from sampled function values the method generates an ...
Programming with Explicit Dependencies. A Framework for Portable Parallel Programming
Computational devices are rapidly evolving into massively parallel systems. Multicore processors are already standard; high performance processors such as the Cell/BE processor, graphics processing units (GPUs) ...
Structure of Polynomial-Time Approximation
Approximation schemes are commonly classified as being either a polynomial-time approximation scheme (ptas) or a fully polynomial-time approximation scheme (fptas). To properly differentiate between approximation schemes ...
