Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering
The journal publishes almost everything regarding computer science and one of them is the new evolutionary algorithm known as Imperialist competitive algorithm. From the journal, one can learn a great deal about the formula. There is a variety of sciences that come up in an attempt to solve systems of nonlinear equations mainly because the process is complicated.
However, there are many approaches that have been brought forward to come up with solutions to the problems. Systems of nonlinear equations cannot be avoided because many fields make use of them such as robotics, economics, medicine, engineering, mechanics and chemistry among others.
However, solutions to these problems become difficult to find especially when the equations in the system do not show nice polynomial or linear properties.
Traditionally, these problems are solved using Newton-type methods. Nevertheless, to solve such problems, it is necessary to formulate an algorithm that is more efficient. This is where the Imperialist Competitive Algorithm (ICA) comes in.
Although Newton-type methods have been used in the past, ICA is a new approach that makes solving nonlinear equations more efficiently.
The backbone of this new method is the ideology behind imperialist competitive. Imperialist competitive ideology involves viewing countries as colonies whereby the weakest ones become eliminated while the strong ones increase their power.
