  • Coetzee, Serena Martha; Bishop, Judith (International Journal of Geographical Information Science, 2009-09-07)
    The original purpose of addresses was to enable the correct and unambiguous delivery of postal mail. The advent of computers and more specifically geographic information systems (GIS) opened up a whole new range of ...
  • Nitschke, G.S.; Schut, M.C.; Eiben, A.E. (Springer, 2009-12)
    This article presents results from an evaluation of the collective neuro-evolution (CONE)controller design method. CONE solves collective behavior tasks, and increases task performance via facilitating emergent behavioral ...
  • Van den Bergh, Frans; Engelbrecht, Andries P. (IOS Pres, 2010)
    The Particle Swarm Optimiser (PSO) is a population based stochastic optimisation algorithm, empirically shown to be efficient and robust. This paper provides a proof to show that the original PSO does not have guaranteed ...
  • Cooper, A.K. (Antony Kyle); Coetzee, Serena Martha; Kourie, Derrick G. (Canadian Institute of Geomatics, 2010)
    The Internet has spawned the development of virtual communities or virtual social networks which generate and share information with one another, and with the public at large. Volunteered geographical information (VGI) ...
  • Solms, Fritz; Loubser, Dawid (Springer, 2010-01)
    The Use Case, Responsibility Driven Analysis and Design (URDAD) methodology is a methodology for technology neutral design generating the Platform Independent Model of the Object Management Group’s Model Driven Architecture. ...
  • Mtshali, Mbali; Engelbrecht, Andries P. (Defence Scientific Information and Documentation, 2010-01)
    In the development of mobile robotic systems, a robotic architecture plays a crucial role in interconnecting all the sub-systems and controlling the system. The design of robotic architectures for mobile autonomous robots ...
  • Kourie, Derrick G. (Royal Society of South Africa, 2010-06)
    The South African Computer Journal (SACJ), as the successor of the Quæstiones Informaticæ journal founded by Derek Henderson, is part of his heritage to South Africa. This brief historical sketch of SACJ outlines the ...
  • Gruner, Stefan; Steyn, T.J. (Elsevier, 2010-07)
    With the re-emergence of parallel computation for technical applications in these days also the classical concept of systolic arrays is becoming important again. However, for the sake of their operational safety, the ...
  • Pieterse, Vreda; Thompson, J.E. (Lisa) (Routledge, 2010-08)
    The acquisition of effective teamwork skills is crucial in all disciplines. Using an interpretive approach, this study investigates collaboration and co-operation in teams of software engineering students. Teams whose ...
  • Schoeman, I.L.; Engelbrecht, Andries P. (Springer, 2010-09)
    Several techniques have been proposed to extend the particle swarm optimization (PSO) paradigm so that multiple optima can be located and maintained within a convoluted search space. A significant number of these impl ...
  • Gruner, Stefan (Springer, 2010-12)
    This workshop aimed at bringing two orthogonal viewpoints about development methods in software engineering together.We were seeking new contributions towards making formal software development faster, and rapid software ...
  • Duvenhage, B.; Bouatouch, K.; Kourie, Derrick G. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011)
    Backward polygon beam tracing methods, that is beam tracing from the light source (L), are well suited to gather path coherency from specular (S) scattering surfaces. These methods are useful for modelling and efficiently ...
  • Khan, Salman Ahmad; Engelbrecht, Andries P. (Springer, 2011)
    Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is a powerful optimization technique that has been applied to solve a number of complex optimization problems. One such optimization problem is topology design of distributed local area ...
  • Matthysen, Wiehann; Engelbrecht, Andries P. (Elsevier, 2011-01)
    The Particle Swarm Optimisation (PSO) algorithm consists of a population (or swarm) of particles that are “flown” through an n-dimensional space in search of a global best solution to an optimisation problem. PSO operates ...
  • Van Staden, W.J.S. (Wynand Johannes Christiaan); Olivier, Martin S. (Graz University of Technology, 2011-02-01)
    This paper puts forward a verification method for compound purposes and compound reasons to be used during purpose limitation. When it is absolutely necessary to collect privacy related information, it is essential ...
  • Graaff, A.J. (Alexander Jakobus); Engelbrecht, Andries P. (Elsevier, 2011-03)
    Many of the existing network theory based artificial immune systems have been applied to data clustering. The formation of artificial lymphocyte (ALC) networks represents potential clusters in the data. Although these ...
  • Mphahlele, M.I.; Olugbara, O.O.; Ojo, S.O.; Kourie, Derrick G. (Operations Research Society of SA, 2011-03)
    Cross-impact analysis relies on decision makers to provide marginal probability estimates of interdependent events. Generally, these have to be revised in order to ensure overall system coherency. This paper describes ...
  • Louis, A.L.; Engelbrecht, Andries P. (Elsevier, 2011-04)
    This paper addresses the problem of analysing textual data for evidence discovery.A novel framework in which to perform evidence discovery is proposed in order to reduce the quantity of data to be analysed, aid the analysts’ ...
  • Gruner, Stefan (Springer, 2011-05)
    On the basis of an earlier contribution to the philosophy of computer science [Ede2007] this essay discusses to what extent the ‘paradigms’ of computer science from [Ede2007] are also applicable to software engineering, ...
