  abstract =     "This study presents new attenuation models for the
                 estimation of peak ground acceleration (PGA), peak
                 ground velocity (PGV), and peak ground displacement
                 (PGD) using a hybrid method coupling genetic
                 programming and simulated annealing, called GP/SA. The
                 PGA, PGV, and PGD were formulated in terms of
                 earthquake magnitude, earthquake source to site
                 distance, average shear-wave velocity, and faulting
                 mechanisms. A worldwide database of strong ground
                 motions released by Pacific Earthquake Engineering
                 Research Center (PEER) was employed to establish the
                 models. A traditional genetic programming analysis was
                 performed to benchmark the proposed models. For more
                 validity verification, the GP/SA models were employed
                 to predict the ground-motion parameters of the Iranian
                 plateau earthquakes. Sensitivity and parametric
                 analyses were carried out and discussed. The results
                 show that the GP/SA attenuation models can offer
                 precise and efficient solutions for the prediction of
                 estimates of the peak time-domain characteristics of
                 strong ground motions. The performance of the proposed
                 models is better than or comparable with the
                 attenuation relationships found in the literature.",
