Reflects recent developments in the field of Computational Science
Takes a close look at adaptive models for evolutionary computing
Focuses on up-to-date research in areas such as geometric computing and distributed systems
The 8th issue of the Transactions on Computational Science has been divided into two parts. Part I, prepared by Guest Editors Nadia Nedjah, Abdelhamid Bouchachia, and Luiza de Macedo Mourelle, consists of 5 detailed papers, presenting state-of-the-art research results on adaptive models for evolutionary computation and their application in various dynamic environments. The 6 papers in Part II take an in-depth look at selected computational science research in the areas of geometric computing, Euclidean distance transform, distributed systems, segmentation, visualization of monotone data, and data interpolation.
