Davidson and Beaver (1977) extended the Bradley-Terry model to incorporate the possible effect of position within a choice set on the choices made in paired comparisons experiments. We further extend the Davidson-Beaver ...

The problem of calculating the optimal dispatch and prices in a single-period electricity auction in a wholesale electricity market is considered here. The novel necessary and sufficient conditions of optimality for this ...

We propose a novel link adaptation mechanism to maximize energy efficiency in IEEE 802.15.6 impulse radio ultra wideband (IR-UWB) wireless body area networks (WBANs). We consider noncoherent energy detection and autocorrelation ...

There is a great potential for significant improvement to be made in energy efficiency and reduction in emissions, fuel use, weight and cost of vehicles through implementing innovative technologies. Many automakers have ...
This work studies the theoretical rules of feature selection in linear discriminant analysis (LDA), and a new feature selection method is proposed for sparse linear discriminant analysis. An $l_1$ minimization method is ...

The present study determines the optimal location of detection components of a tsunami warning system in the Mediterranean region given the existing and planned infrastructure. Specifically, we examine the locations of ...

Dynamic systems are quite often non-linear and require a complex mathematical model. For their optimal control, it has been always a requirement to tune the controller parameters to achieve the best performance. Parameter ...
Decision makers often face the need of performance guarantee with some sufficiently high probability. Such problems can be modelled using a discrete time Markov decision process (MDP) with a probability criterion for the ...
An analysis of the impact of the packetization interval for constant bit rate traffic has been done in the context of IEEE 802.16 MAC layer. Bandwidth used for overheads which include lower layer headers as well as ...
This paper proposes an optimal path-following control approach for a smart powered wheelchair. Lyapunov's second method is employed to find a stable position tracking control rule. To guarantee robust performance of this ...

Purpose: Previous systematic reviews have found patient education to be moderately efficacious in decreasing the intensity of cancer pain, but variation in results warrants analysis aimed at identifying which strategies ...
Oppurtunistic Information Fusion (OIF) is introduced to enable the same sensors to provide data for multiple applications. Sensor location plays a crucial rule to get the maximum amount of useful information. This paper ...
There is a great potential for significant improvement to be made in energy efficiency and
all-electric drive performance of the different types of existing powertrain architectures,
such as: 1) traditional internal ...
We consider the properties of weighted linear combinations of prediction models, or linear pools, evaluated using the log predictive scoring rule. Although exactly one model has limiting posterior probability, an optimal ...
This article explores use of auctions for privatising public assets. In our model, a single 'insider'bidder possesses information about the asset's common value. Bidders are privately informed about their costs of exploiting ...
In this paper we consider optimal trading processes in economic systems. The analysis is based on accounting for irreversibility factor using wealth function concept.
This paper describes general methodology that allows one to extend Carnot efficiency of classical thermodynamic for zero rate processes onto thermodynamic systems with finite rate. We define the class of minimal dissipation ...
