Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, methods to optimally granulize rough set partition sizes using simulated annealing technique, are proposed. The proposed procedure is applied to model the militarized interstate dispute data. The suggested technique is then compared to the rough set partition method that is based on particle swarm optimization. The results obtained demonstrate that simulated annealing provides higher forecasting accuracies than particle swarm optimization method.
