This paper present a new routing protocol for Ad hoc networks, called On-demand Tree-based Routing Protocol (OTRP). This protocol combines the idea of hop-by-hop routing such as AODV with an efficient route discovery ...
Let n > 2 be a positive integer and let φ denote Euler's totient function. Define φ1(n) = φ(n) and φk(n) = φ(φk-1(n)) for all integers k ≥ 2. Define the arithmetic function S by S(n) = φ(n) + φ2(n) +...+ φc(n) + 1, where ...
We discuss structural and institutional underpinnings of the Greek 'Debt' Crisis. We suggest that the Greece's de facto catching-up competitiveness model was misguided, short-term focused, and eventually doomed. Alongside ...
Principal component analysis (PCA) computes a succinct data representation by converting the data to a few new variables while retaining maximum variation. However, the new variables are difficult to interpret, because ...

Simson's identity is a well-known Fibonacci identity in which the difference of certain order 2 products has a particularly pleasing form. Other old and beautiful identities of a similar nature are attributed to Catalan, ...
Abstract Redundancy checking is an important task in the research of knowledge representation and reasoning. In this paper, we consider redundant qualitative constraints. For a set Γ of qualitative constraints, we say a ...
An explicit formula for ruin probability in a discrete time risk model with interest rare is found under the assumption that claims follow a hyperexponential distribution.
This is an expos\'e on the use of O'Sullivan penalised splines in contemporary semiparametric regression, including mixed model and Bayesian formulations. O'Sullivan penalised splines are similar to P-splines, but have an ...

Ad hoc networks typically require a significant amount of routing and control information to be distributed in a timely and reliable manner throughout the network, particularly in dynamic environments. As traffic levels ...
This paper investigated human heart rate (HR) and oxygen uptake (VO2) dynamics to running exercise and developed an electronic circuitry based mathematical model to quantitatively depict the metabolic and energy-generating ...
The on-offshore distributions of tuna larvae in near-reef waters of the Coral Sea, near Lizard Island (14 degrees 30'S, 145 degrees 27'E), Australia, were investigated during four cruises from November 1984 to February ...
Water scarcity due to persistent drought is forcing the countries around the world to explore alternative fresh water resources. Australia is the driest inhabited continent, and has one of the most variable rainfall ...
This paper addresses the problem of bounding the reachable set of the sliding dynamics in discrete-time systems subject to time-varying state delay and bounded external disturbances. The sliding motion is determined from ...
