A Cost-Aware Test Suite Minimization Approach Using TAP Measure and Greedy Search Algorithm

Shounak Sugave, Suhas Patil, B Reddy
2017 International Journal of Intelligent Engineering and Systems  
The proposed algorithm (GTAP) is newly designed using TAP measure and greedy search algorithm. This algorithm uses TAP-measure which is specially developed for measuring the importance of test cases.  ...  From the experimentation, the average performance of the proposed GTAP algorithm in all the programs is 93.07% which is higher than the DIV-GA which obtained the value of 90.27%.  ...  Improvement (cost) is utilized to find the cost improvement of the proposed algorithm while compared with the existing algorithm.  ...

Improved Algorithm for Stream Function Wave Theory

Min‐Chih Huang
1989 Journal of waterway, port, coastal, and ocean engineering  
The theoretical predictions of water particle kinematics and pressure field under a prog~essive regular wave in the ~aboratory require the use of a suitable wave theory. An  ...  improved asymmetric stream function algorithm is proposed to represent the measured regular wave data.  ...  This algorithm essentially combines most computational features of Dean's irregular stream function program and Dalrymple's regular symmetric stream function program and is relatively easy to be modified  ...
