    Collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment (CPFR) is a cooperative management approach that helps to improve the abilities of supply chain members to increase their revenue and profit. Despite promising results reported by companies that have adopted CPFR, the implementation of CPFR appears to have encountered some obstacles. It is proposed here that a lack of appropriate detailed infor... View full abstract»

  • Evolution of Visual Cryptography Basis Matrices with Binary Chromosomes

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):7 - 12
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (596 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Visual cryptography is a form of secret sharing requiring only human vision to decrypt a secret image, based on the stacking of seemingly random shadow images, or "shares". The main optimization metrics are pixel expansion and recovered image contrast. Maximization of the latter is crucial, as it determines the quality of the decrypted secret. This paper proposes genetic algorithms to evolve basis... View full abstract»

    This study develops an evolutionary strategy called DEPSO-GANN, which uses an artificial neural network (ANN) based on a parallel genetic algorithm (PGA) with migration for the adaptive control of integrated differential evolution (DE) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) to solve large-scale optimization problems, reduce calculation costs, and improve the stability of convergence towards the opt...

    This paper presents results of the utilization of four different discrete chaotic maps as pseudo-random number generators for the particle swam optimization algorithm in the task of PID controller design for two different systems. The results are compared with previously published results and discussed. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (266 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Numerical simulations of multilayer electrochemical biosensor with degradation of substrate and/or product have been presented. Action of the enzyme has been assumed to be a Michaelis--Menten process. Two cases: when product diffuses out of the biosensor and when the outer membrane is impermeable for product have been dealt with by adjusting boundary conditions in the mathematical model. A few ver... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (647 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    CYP1A2 enzyme is involved in several metabolic processes that may produce substances with carcinogenic or mutagenic activity. Most commonly it metabolizes the charcoaled food components, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) or heterocyclic aromatic amines (HAAs) into mutagenic and cytotoxic substances. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is formed endogenously from cholesterol and is a precursor of s... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a realistic PET scanner simulation using Monte Carlo code, version MCNP5. The objective of our study was to verify the code used for this simulation by comparing the results obtained from the simulation with those obtained from the measurement did on a real PET scanner. This study will provide a basic benchmark for our further study on PET imaging. We modeled the scanner based ... View full abstract»

    A process of long-term ecological successions has been considered. The model of open Eigen's hyper cycle has been proposed for modelling of the process. The model is a system of differential equation of the second order. The multi-dimension case is analysed, it is shown that i many cases consideration of dynamics of n-dimensional system can be simplified by partial reduction to (n-1)-dimensional c...

  • Increasing Stability of Real-Time Pulse Wave Velocity Estimation by Combining Established and New Approaches

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):47 - 51
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (186 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Pulse wave velocity (PWV) in arteries is an estimator for arterial stiffness. As velocity is calculated as distance per time, the accuracy and reliability of PWV measurements depends heavily on the estimation of the pulse transit time (PTT). Several methods for the estimation of the PTT exist, often resulting in different PWV values. They rely on the exact determination of specific points in the p... View full abstract»

    According to the Statistics Austria more than one third of the Austrian population suffers from at least one chronic disease. Therefore efficient tools for the evaluation of the prevalence of these diseases and possible treatment and/or prevention strategies are needed. When simulating a chronic disease usually a model part for population dynamics, for the disease and also for costs is needed. Sin... View full abstract»

    Future construction of cars requires knowledge about dynamics of driver's, because vitally affecting his responses to unexpected situations in traffic. Unpredictable situations in the driving of the car are real, because the traffic is crowded on the road. After detecting the models in the brain driver's, we could understand how models influencing his reaction on the traffic situations. Research r... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (235 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper is concerned with a forecast of propriety of FX trading by quantitative analysis. The quantitative analysis in this paper uses a Naive Bayes model and a pair wise EPDW matrix. The Naive Bayes model employs a binomial distribution for the likelihood. Both the prior and posterior probabilities are assumed to be a beta distribution, so a conjugate distribution turns into the beta distribut... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (327 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper discusses the construction of a game engine which is based around the principle of discrete event simulation. This work is interesting as it uses a predictive time of collision rather than a frame based approach. The key design decisions made and the tools used during the construction of the predictive game engine (PGE) are described. The objects modelled in the game engine are rigid ci...
