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 ...
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 ...
The structure of the decimal expansion of the Golden Ratio is examined in decimal and modular forms through the use of various properties of the Fibonacci numbers, particularly the roots of the associated polynomial and ...
Taking the reciprocal of the golden ratio and summing its non-negative integer powers, we obtain a series that converges. We then consider series obtained by striking out terms of this series, proving key theorems about ...
J. R. Meginniss modified expected utility to accommodate a concept of the utility of gambling that led to a representation composed of a utility expectation term plus an entropy of degree ? term. He imposed several apparently ...
In this paper we consider optimal trading processes in economic systems. The analysis is based on accounting for irreversibility factor using wealth function concept.
Fibronectin is a protein present in blood and the extracellular matrix which has important roles in cell adhesion and migration, wound healing and blood clotting. Three models of fibronectin adsorption, on various substrates ...
Multiobjective optimization focuses on the explicit trade-offs between competing criteria. A particular case is the study of combined optimal design and optimal control, or co-design, of smart artifacts where the artifact ...

With rapid technological innovation and strong competition in hi-tech industries such as computer and communication organizations, the upstream component price and the downstream product cost usually decline significantly ...
Elements of the Pell sequence satisfy a class of second order linear recurrence relations which interrelate a number of integer properties, such as elements of the rows of even and odd squares in the modular ring Z4. Integer ...
This paper uses a penalty guided strategy based on an artificial bee colony algorithm (PGBC) to solve the redundancy allocation problem (RAP) in reliability seriesparallel systems. The penalty strategy was designed to ...
Network reliability is very important for the decision support information. Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS) is one of the optimal algorithms to estimate the network reliability for different kinds of network configuration. ...
Appropriate technology plays an important part in third world development. The most appropriate technology may not be the simplest technology available, nor must it consist of simple mechanical devices. How can physics help?
