We study the dynamics of a one-dimensional discrete flow with open boundaries?a series of moving point particles connected by ideal springs. These particles flow towards an inlet at constant velocity, pass into a region ...
Electricity demand forecasting plays an important role in electric power systems planning. In this paper, nonlinear time series modeling technique is applied to analyze electricity demand. Firstly, the phase space, which ...
This paper introduces a variant of random utility choice models based on mixed probability density functions, hence the adopted moniker k-Mix models. Mixed pdfs contain components with the usual continuous density function ...
We prove, in a multipartite setting, that it's always feasible to exactly transform a genuinely $m$-partite entangled state with sufficient many copies to any other $m$-partite state via local quantum operation and classical ...
Necessary and sufficient global optimality conditions are presented for certain nonconvex minimization problems subject to inequality constraints that are expressed as the pointwise minimum of sublinear (MSL) functions. A ...
We give an O(n 2) time algorithm to find the population variance of tour costs over the solution space of the n city symmetric Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). The algorithm has application in both the stochastic case, ...
In this paper stationary regimes of open macro-systems that include active subsystems (with controlled parameters) near equilibrium are considered. A generalized Prigogine extremal principle for such systems is formulated ...
This paper considers Cournot oligopolies with product differentiation when the firms have inexact knowledge of the price functions and there are random time lags in obtaining and implementing information on the firms' own ...
This note considers possible arrangements of the sectors of a generalised dartboard. The sum of the pth powers of the absolute differences of the numbers on adjacent sectors is introduced as a penalty cost function and a ...
Deadlock problems of zone-control uni-directional automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) are discussed in this paper. A directed graph is de® ned to model the vehicle ¯ ows, to identify distinct vehicle ¯ ows, to represent ...
This paper addresses the problem of decentralized robust stabilization and control for a class of uncertain Markov jump parameter systems. Control is via output feedback and knowledge of the discrete Markov state. It is ...
The local Hurst exponent, a measure employed to detect the presence of dependence in a time series, may also be used to investigate the source of intraday variation observed in the returns in foreign exchange markets. Given ...
