This paper considers the problems of estimating the stability region (domain of attraction) and controller design for uncertain linear continuous-time systems with input saturation when linear quadratic (LQ) optimal ...
This paper presents two types of symmetric scale mixture probability distributions which include the normal, Student t, Pearson Type VII, variance gamma, exponential power, uniform power and generalised t (GT) distributions. ...

Self-similar models are largely used to describe the extinction rate of biological species. In this paper we analyse the extinction rate of firms in eight OECD countries. Firms are classified by industrial sectors and ...

The practice of detecting power laws and scaling behaviors in economics and finance has gained momentum in the last few years, due to the increased use of concepts and methods first developed in statistical physics. Some ...
In this presentation, we developed an intuitive algorithm based on some simple concepts that were found in this study. It is more e2cient than the best-known existing algorithm. The computational complexity of the proposed ...
In this paper, "rst we develop an intuitive algorithm using the shortest path based upon the reformation of all MCs in the original network. Next, the computational complexity of the proposed algorithm is analyzed and ...
The concerns of teachers and students in integrating computer technology in the classroom may influence how computer technology is ultimately implemented. There has been substantial research into reasons for teacher ...
The seismic random vibration responses of shear beam structures with uncertainty are investigated. The structural mass and stiffness are considered as random variables. The excitations adopted are stationary or non-stationary ...
In this paper, we propose a general optimization-based model for classification. Then we show that some well-known optimization-based methods for classification, which were developed by Shi et al. [Data mining in credit ...
Many business situations such as events, products and services, are often described in a hierarchical structure. When we use case-based reasoning (CBR) techniques to support business decision-making, we require a ...
In classical disassembly sequencing problems (DSPs), the disassembly time of each item is assumed fixed and sequence-independent. From a practical perspective, the actual processing time of a component could depend on its ...
This article proposes a number of frequency domain estimation procedures for the ARFIMA model based on a spectral generalized method of moments, (SGMM) estimator. It is shown that the SGMM estimator includes as special ...
This paper proposed a penalty guided artificial bee colony algorithm (ABC) to solve the reliability redundancy allocation problem (RAP). The redundancy allocation problem involves setting reliability objectives for components ...
This paper contains observations, conjectures and open questions concerning two finite sums that involve Fibonacci and Lucas numbers. Certain authors have become aware of the contents of this 9hitherto unpublished) manuscript ...
