AL-Rafidain Journal of Computer Sciences and Mathematics, Volume 4, Issue 2, Pages 11-23
DOI: 10.33899/csmj.2007.164012

In this paper, we describe two new algorithms which are modifications of the Hestens-stiefl CG-method. The first is the scaled CG-method (obtained from function and gradient-values) which improves the search direction by multiplying to a scalar obtained from function value and its gradient at two successive points along the iterations. The second is the Preconditioned CG-method which uses an approximation at Hessein of the minimizing function. These algorithms are not sensitive to the line searches. Numerical experiments indicate that these new algorithms are effective and superior especially for increasing dimensionalities.

DOI: 10.33899/csmj.2007.164015

In this paper, we used a new operation in a Genetic Algorithm for solving the binary Knapsack problem depending on it’s LP Relaxation solution after eliminating the fractional part of the non-binary values. The benefit is to make a filter to the initial random population from the farness of the optimal solution and unsuitable chromosomes. This good property will be fixed automatically in all generations in the Genetic Algorithm until reaching the optimal binary solution.

Image matching plays an important role in many applications such as multi-modality medical imaging and multi-spectral image analysis. The role of matching is to integrate multiple sources of object information into a single image. The matching problem consists of determining the unknown transform parameters required to map one image to match the other image(20). Different non – traditional   methods are  used for solving this kind of  problem. Among these methods are the  Genetic Algorithms, Neural Networks & Simulating Annealing.
            Swarm Intelligence (SI) algorithms take their inspiration from the collective behavior of natural, for example, ant colonies, flocks of birds, or fish shoals, a particularly successful strandant colony optimization (ACO)(1). Ant Colony Optimization is a population-based general search technique, proposed by Dorigo(1992,1996), for the  solution of difficult combinatorial problems)4). The studies show that, in nature, the ant colony is able to discover the shortest paths between the nest and food sources very efficiently, such a deposit substance is called pheromone during talking and another ants can smell it, if one of ants find a short path, it feedback on the same path and the value of pheromone on this path increases and a another ants gradually chose this path.(22)
            Tabu search  is one of the best known heuristic to choose the next neighbor to move on. At each step, one chooses the best neighbor with respect to  specific function (23).
            The basic idea in this paper is using Ant Colony Optimization(ACO) & Tabu Search(TS) as a success strategy for matching two images. The suggestion algorithm evaluation is a good promising solution, by providing an optimal algorithm which is executed by optimal time and coast, I believe that there is no prior research conjoining the two topics in this way. The program is written in Matlab language (6.5).

The problem inherent to any digital image is the large amount of bandwidth required for transmission or storage. This has driven the research area of image compression to develop algorithm that compress images to lower data rates with better quality.
This research present, a new approach to image compression based on clustering. This new approach includes new objective function, and its minimization by energy function based on unsupervised two dimensional fuzzy Hopfield neural network. New objective function consists of a combination of classification entropy function and average distance between image pixels and cluster centers. After applying new method on gray scale sample images at different number of clusters, better compression ratio and signal to noise ratio was observed. The new method is also a new clustering analysis method, and it provides more compact and separate clustering.

The distance between any two vertices u and v in a connected graph G is defined as the length of the shortest path between them, and it is denoted by d(u,v).The sum of distances for all unordered pairs of distinct vertices in G represents Wiener index.
The number of pairs of vertices G which are distance k apart is denoted by d(G,k), it is clear that the number of d(G,k) is graphical invariant, and the Wiener polynomial of graph G is a generating function of the sequence d(G,k).
In this paper, we find the Wiener polynomial of multi-circles of paraffin structural, and this formula which we obtained is better than the formula prove in [5] , because we are able to evaluate coefficients for any limited power of x without depending on the number of circles , and we find the Wiener index and average distance for this structural.
Lastly, we contracted a MATLAB program to evaluate the Wiener polynomial coefficient ,Wiener index and average distance.

In this research wavelet technique was used for speech compression. It was translated and scaled to groups which represent mother wavelet function.
Applying the adopted algorithm with MATLAB software using Daubechies filters family (with multi-scale for compression level) to compress speech signal for (N=1..9). When the compression level and the distortion level, a best compression level seen at level (5), with different type of wavelet and fixed compression ratio at level (5) with different type of Daubechies filters family.
Minimum signal distortion was seen when the adopted algorithm was applied. And with multi type of wavelet it was seen that the scale had direct proportional relation ship with the compression ratio, also speech compression does not need smoothing for the speech signal as compared to other compression methods.

Due to the rapid development in communication and multimedia technology, different techniques are used for copyright protection and monitoring illegal copying of these media. One of the most important techniques is digital watermarking.
 In this research, an algorithm for copyright protection of text documents was designed and implemented.
The algorithm includes three steps: Watermark generation using the original text, watermark embedding using space embedding approach and finally watermark extracting and comparing it with the original one using normalized correlation.
Experimental results are presented to demonstrate the robustness of the algorithm against common attacks which alter the embedded text like changing some letters of the text, changing structure of text sentences, or changing the number of spaces between the words …etc.
Matlab Ver. 6.5 was used to implement the algorithm under Windows.

This research offers a new method in Cryptanalysis of knapsack cipher. It focuses on the application of genetic algorithm as a modern way in solving complex problems (problems have a huge numbers of alternate solutions in appropriate time). One of these problems is knapsack problem which is considered one of the known problems in operation researches. Cryptanalysis is done by using a new algorithm that is different from known knapsack breaking algorithm. Genetic algorithm has recently been successfully applied to the cryptanalysis of ciphers, among them Substitution  ciphers and Transposition ciphers. This research deals with another type of ciphers called Public-key ciphers, that are high secure ciphers because they are based on NP-Complete problems.
