International banking refers to the activities of providing financial services (banking) to clients (both institutional and individual) located in many different countries. This encompasses a wide range of activities, ...
Since the 1970s, the Australian-Asian sport relationship has intensified and has developed greater depth. There have been an increasing number of tours to and from Asia, Australian involvement in Asian competitions, player ...
In many business situations, products or user profile data are so complex that they need to be described by use of tree structures. Evaluating the similarity between tree-structured data is essential in many applications, ...
Evaluating the network reliability is an important topic in the planning, designing, and control of systems. The minimal cut set (MC, an edge set) is one of the major and fundamental tools for evaluating network reliability. ...
The traditional min-cut problem involves finding a cut with minimum weight between two specified vertices. The planar multiway cut problem is a NP-hard generalization of the min-cut problem. It involves separating a weighted ...
Many real-world systems are multistate systems composed of multistate components in which the reliability can be computed in terms of the lower bound points of level d, by formulating in terms of either the d-minimal paths ...
Evaluating the network reliability is an important topic in the planning, designing, and control of systems. The minimal cut (MC, an edge set) set is one of the major and fundamental tools for evaluating the network ...
A rigorous quantitative verification technique is presented for nonlinear finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) algorithms by analyzing parametric four-wave mixing (FWM) in an optical Kerr medium without involving other ...

Nickel hydroxide nanosheets were synthesized by a simple microwave assisted heating method and investigated as electrochemical pseudo-capacitive materials for supercapacitors. The crystalline structure and morphology of ...
Many real-world systems are multistate systems composed of multistate components in which the reliability can be computed in terms of the lower bound points of level d, called d-MCs. Such systems (electric power, transportation, ...
The problems studied here belong to a class called graph partition. They are combinatorial problems which consist of finding a partition of vertices into components in order to optimise a given measure. A variety of ...
Linear programming (LP) is the core model of constrained optimization. The Simplex method (Simplex in short) has been proven in practice to perform very well in small- or medium-sized LP problems. A new algorithm called ...
Heat-pulse techniques are routinely used to estimate transpiration from canopies of woody plants typically without any local calibration, mainly because of the difficulty of doing so in the field and, frequently, lack of ...
Evaluating network reliability is an important topic in the planning, designing, and control of network systems. In this paper, an intuitive heuristic algorithm is developed to find all minimal paths (NIP) by adding a path, ...
We describe a low cost optical temperature sensor that is simple to manufacture. The sensor is constructed by simple soaking of paper in a solution of the temperature sensitive luminescent indicator Ru(phen)3 and subsequent ...
A simple portable light meter for use with fiber-optic microprobes was developed. The meter has a flat spectral quantum responsivity for 400 to 700 nm light (photosynthetically available radiation, PAR). With scalar ...
A MP/minimal cutset (MC) is a path/cut set such that if any edge is removed from this path/cut set, then the remaining set is no longer a path/cut set. An intuitive method is proposed to evaluate the reliability in terms ...
In this paper, a modified direct torque control (DTC) for permanent-magnet synchronous machines, which enables important torque- and flux-ripple reduction by using voltage vectors with variable amplitude and angle, is ...
