The question of whether swarms can form as a result of a non-cooperative game played by individuals is shown here to have an affirmative answer. A dynamic game played by N agents in one-dimensional motion is introduced and models, for instance, a foraging ant colony. Each agent controls its velocity to minimize its total work done in a finite time interval. The game is shown to have a Nash equilibrium that has all the features of a swarm behavior. © 2012 IFAC.

Representing and evaluating ultrasonic maps using active snake contours and Kohonen's self-organizing feature maps Altun, K.; Barshan, B. (2010)Active snake contours and Kohonen's self-organizing feature maps (SOMs) are employed for representing and evaluating discrete point maps of indoor environments efficiently and compactly. A generic error criterion is developed ...
Alp, Y.K.; Arikan, O.; Karakas, S. (2009)Localization of the sources of Event Related Potentials (ERP) is a challenging inverse problem, especially to resolve sources of neural activity occurring simultaneously. By using an effective dipole source model, we propose ...
Unsupervised classification of remotely sensed images using Gaussian mixture models and particle swarm optimization Ari, C.; Aksoy, S. (2010)Gaussian mixture models (GMM) are widely used for un-supervised classification applications in remote sensing. Expectation-Maximization (EM) is the standard algorithm employed to estimate the parameters of these models. ...
