Algorithms. Information. Expressiveness: Retrospective View.

 Focus is on the processing, transmission, storage, and use of information, as well as the foundation of the communications process. Technical interests encompass theoretical and applied aspects of coding, communications, and communications networks.

  Information theory studies the quantification, storage, and communication of information. It was originally proposed by Claude E. Shannon in 1948 to find fundamental limits on signal processing and communication operations such as data compression, in a landmark paper entitled “A Mathematical Theory of Communication”.

Anayoly V. Anisimov was born on June 15, 1948. He was awarded the diploma in mathematics (1970), PhD (1973)  and  Doctor’s  degree (1983)  in Computer Science from Taras Shevchenko National University of  Kyiv, Ukraine.  

         He is Professor of Computer Science at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv since 1984; Head of Department of Mathematical Informatics. In 1977 he worked as a Visiting Scientist at the Stanford University, Stanford, USA. He coauthored with D. Knuth the paper “Inhomogeneous Sorting”, published in the International Journal of Computer and Information Sciences, vol. 8, no. 4, 1979. His research interests include algorithms, codes, parallel programming, information security, artificial intelligence.

         Prof.  Anisimov is a Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and IEEE Member.

  Applications of fundamental topics of information theory include lossless data compression (e.g. ZIP files), lossy data compression (e.g. MP3s and JPEGs), and channel coding (e.g. for DSL). Its impact has been crucial to the success of the Voyager missions to deep space, the invention of the compact disc, the feasibility of mobile phones, the development of the Internet, the study of linguistics and of human perception, the understanding of black holes, and numerous other fields.

  A key measure in information theory is “entropy”. Entropy quantifies the amount of uncertainty involved in the value of a random variable or the outcome of a random process. For example, identifying the outcome of a fair coin flip (with two equally likely outcomes) provides less information (lower entropy) than specifying the outcome from a roll of a die (with six equally likely outcomes). Some other important measures in information theory are mutual information, channel capacity, error exponents, and relative entropy

   A large number of modern practical problems belong to the class of constraint satisfaction problems. The target functions in such tasks are, as a rule, undifferentiated and(or) poly-extremal dependencies. The use of classical methods of continuous optimization, and in many cases discrete optimization, is impossible. Stochastic search, combinatorial optimization methods, and evolutionary algorithms are used to solve such tasks. Because the model of target function can be complex polynomials, neural and neuro-fuzzy networks, systems of simple and fuzzy production rules, and also the dependencies can be set tabularly or algorithmically, then evolutionary algorithms are most often preferred. Exactly, the use of this algorithms does not require strict target functions constraints, but does not guarantee the finding of a global optimum, although according to certain conditions there is a probability convergence. The obtained solutions are considered suboptimal.

Prof. Vitaliy Snytyuk was born on 13 August, 1967.

Vitaliy Y. Snytyuk received the MSc. degree in mathematics (probability theory) from Taras Shevchenko National University of  Kyiv, in 1991, the Ph.D. degree in Information Technology of Design from Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture, in 1999, and the Dr.Sci. degree in Information Technology from Institute of Mathematical Machines and Systems Problems of the Ukraine National Academy of Science, in 2009.

From 2014 he is a Head of Intelligent Technologies Department, Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.

His main research areas are evolutionary computation, data analysis, decision making under uncertainty, and their applications. He has coauthored some 180 papers in journals and international conferences, and has two patents.

  This paper is devoted to the consideration of  optimization problem for function of two variables, which, in the general case, is poly-extremal and undifferentiated. One of the most commonly used methods of solving this problem are evolutionary algorithms. A deformed stars method was developed, where the population of solutions is 3-, 4-, and 5-points groups. The advantages of the developed method in comparison of genetic algorithms, evolutionary strategies and differential evolution as the most typical evolutionary algorithms are shown.
