    New repulsive potential functions (RPFs) for point robot path planning are presented, where the RPF for path planning has a different magnitude at each direction of a RPF based on the angle between a goal and an obstacle, unlike a conventional RPF in which the same magnitude at each direction is obtained. In doing so the RPF attempts to overcome some of the typical problems that may pose to the co... View full abstract»

    The novel RTPD/MACSC model proposed in this paper tunes the cache size adoptively on the fly. It combines the extant MACSC (model for adaptive cache size control) and the novel RTPD (real-time traffic pattern detection) capability. Similar to its MACSC predecessor, the new RTPD/MACSC tuner maintains the given cache hit ratio consistently and persistently. It, however, differs from its predecessor ... View full abstract»

    In order to maintain the high reliability of a computer system, it is necessary to detect the failure leading to a fault. In general, fault can be detected by exploiting time redundancy or spatial redundancy. However, it negatively affects on either hardware cost or processor performance. To solve the cost-performance issue, in this paper, we propose a concept of cost-effective approach to achieve... View full abstract»

    A re-ranking technique, called "PageRank", brings a successful story behind the Googletrade search engine. Many studies focus on finding an efficient way to compute the PageRank scores of a large web graph. Researchers propose to compute them sequentially by reducing the I/O cost of disk access, improving the convergence rate, or even employing peer-2-peer architecture, etc. However, on...

    The traditional metadata cannot provide enough support for the adaptive distributed systems. In this paper, we propose a metadata extension that uses the scenarios as semantic aspect, describing the expected interaction sequence based on XML schema. With such constraints, resource waste and further damages can be avoided by preventing the illegal interactions at runtime. This extension is more val... View full abstract»
