Consider a network where all nodes are distributed on a unit square following a Poisson distribution with known density $\rho$ and a pair of nodes separated by an Euclidean distance $x$ are directly connected with probability ...

The attractivity properties of the set of equilibria of a special class of homogeneous dynamic economic systems are examined. The nonlinearity of the models and the presence of eigenvalues with zero real parts make the ...
Neospora caninum is a parasite regarded a major cause of foetal loss in cattle. A key requirement to an understanding of the epidemiology and pathogenicity of N caninum is knowledge of the biological characteristics of the ...
Regions of anomalous localized resonance, such as occurring near superlenses, are shown to lead to cloaking effects. This occurs when the resonant field generated by a polarizable line or point dipole acts back on the ...
We examine the mechanism by which thiol-protected gold nanoparticle inks can sinter at surprisingly low temperatures. At room temperature the sample is comprised of randomly close-packed gold nanoparticles of about 2.3 nm ...

Subdaily, annual maximum rainfall series from a number of locations about Australia are analysed to determine how extreme bursts at one duration coincide with those at another duration. Burst patterns for sites at Darwin ...
The importance of relational methods in temporal and spatial reasoning has been widely recognised in the last two decades. A quite large part of contemporary spatial reasoning is concerned with the research of relation ...
In this paper we consider the Function-Behaviour-Structure model of designing in the version as developed by John Gero and collaborators. We identify two problems the absence of a stable definition of function, and the ...
Considering a wireless multi-hop network where a total of n nodes are randomly, independently and uniformly distributed in a unit square in R2 and each node has a uniform transmission power, a fundamental problem is to ...
In this paper, an analysis of the convergence performance is conducted for a class of possibilistic clustering algorithms (PCAs) utilizing the Zangwill convergence theorem. It is shown that under certain conditions the ...
The steady-state response of forced single degree-of-freedom weakly nonlinear oscillators under primary resonance conditions can exhibit saddle-node bifurcations, jump and hysteresis phenomena, if the amplitude of the ...
In this paper, we show how a middle manager interprets the action of two employees as problematic and how he solves it by using the company's code of ethics as the basis for firing them. Our telling of the story unmasks a ...
Linear bilevel programming theory has been studied for many years by a number of researchers from different aspects, yet it still remains to some extent unsatisfactory and incomplete. The main challenge is how to solve a ...

This paper presents a novel method of designing active inductors using current-controlled voltage sources (CCVSs). The basic idea consists of designing an equivalent inductor, using only capacitors and CCVSs. The signal-flow ...
Holland, I. D; Cowley, W. G; and Burnet, C.(2007-03-12)
We consider issues related to the design of a 60GHz short-range wireless local area network (WLAN) using low cost components and aiming at data rates on the order of 1Gbit/s. It is anticipated that the use of adaptive ...
In this paper distributions are identified which suitably fit log-returns of the world stock index when these are expressed in units of different currencies. By searching for a best fit in the class of symmetric generalized ...
In the last decade, Electro-Sensitive Elastomers (ESE) with significant electro-mechanical response have been discovered. These polymers are the candidate materials for the construction of solid-state actuators and sensors. ...
