Title: Intelligent techniques for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease / Ravi Jain.
Author: Jain, Ravi, 1967-

School/Discipline: Dept. of Applied Mathematics
Abstract: This thesis proposes a genetic-programming-based classifier system for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. Based on genetic programming, a software system called Evolutionary Pre-Processor has been developed as a new method for the automatic extraction of non-linear features for supervised classification. Two different hybrid intelligent system techniques are presented; fuzzy systems integrated with genetic algorithms and genetic algorithms combined with back-propagation algorithms. All approaches were tested on a real-world problem of coronary artery disease data.
