    The process of designing a set of good DNA sequences is an essential problem and one of the most practical and important research topics in DNA-based computing. In this field of research, a DNA sequence design problem is defined as a multi-objective problem, and it is evaluated using four objective functions, which are h-measure, similarity, continuity, and hairpin. In addition, two constraints, G... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (295 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper we have used sentiment analysis on news articles to see its effect on stock prices. We collected our dataset using Bing API which gave us links to news articles about a specific company. As no pre-existing sentiment dictionary specifically for stock articles exited, we created a specialized sentiment dictionary only meant to analyze stock articles. Two different machine learning algo... View full abstract»

    It is a challenging problem that Multi-Agent systemmake the best response action in a dynamic environment. This study applied probabilistic theory and Piaget's schema theory to develop a cognitive behavioral learning mechanism for the pursuit-evasion game in a dynamic environment. The proposed cognitive schema is divided into two parts, one is a perceptional schema and the other is an intentional ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we study the stability of a high resolution quantized feedback system. It is well known that a quantized feedback system can be stabilised by increasing the resolution of the quantizer. However, limit cycles have also been found under certain conditions at high resolution. These necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of limit cycles are examined. Solutions for the lim... View full abstract»

    Weather forecasting is an alarming challenge in the field of geo-sciences as it depends on several parameters which are dynamic and chaotic. Continuous changes in precipitation distribution are complicated, being effected by meteorological and geographical factors. The major forms of precipitation are rain, snow and hails which depends on atmospheric parameters and climatic conditions, in which sn... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (681 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In current undergraduate electrical engineering, the emphasis on linear systems develops a way of thinking that dismisses nonlinear dynamics as spurious oscillations. The linear systems approach oversimplifies the dynamics of nonlinear systems. This paper helps students understand chaotic behavior using simulations of a continuous-time circuit, DC-DC buck converter and a discrete-time system - log... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (298 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    An efficient, general-purpose, blind/no-reference image quality assessment (NR-IQA) algorithm based on natural image statistics in the gradient domain is proposed in this letter. We call it REFIINGS (REFerrenceless Image Integrity Notator using Gradient Statistics). The gradient of an image describes its geometric features which can be easily captured by the human visual system (HVS). In the liter... View full abstract»
