    Major performance gains can be obtained by implementing computational intelligence algorithms on graphics processing units. However, a certain amount of skill is needed for the implementation; in some cases the performance gains can be as high as 200 times, but as low as two times or actually less than CPU operation. It is necessary to understand the limitations of the graphics processing hardware... View full abstract»

    A common question in practice is "what are the circumstances in which agile methodologies should be adopted for more effective software development?" For instance, is the agile method suited for the development of modern industrial automation software? Actually this is a hard problem to address, and the right answer can be determined only by the requirements and constraints of each individual proj... View full abstract»

    The terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum is emerging as a powerful weapon in the war on terrorism and illicit drug trafficking. There is still much work to be done in developing the technology, but it shows an amazing ability to single out explosives, fertilizer bombs, chemical and biological agents, and narcotics by their characteristic transmission and reflection properties in the te...

    Voltage sag is a relatively long-duration drop in line voltage. It is defined as a decrease between 0.1 and 0.9 per unit (pu) in alternating-current line voltage for durations of 0.5 cycles to 1 minute, where "per unit" is a fraction of the base voltage. The author compared the performance of a DVR and the more conventional shunt capacitors in mitigating voltage sag by simulation using PSCAD softw... View full abstract»

    Interconnection networks are a key element in a wide variety of systems: massive parallel processors, local and system area networks, clusters of PCs and workstations, and Internet Protocol routers. They are essential to high performance in the form of high-bandwidth communications, with low latency, "quality of service" (guaranteed service levels), efficient switching, and flexibility of network ...

    Autonomic communication focuses on distributed systems and management of network resources at both the infrastructure level and the user level. It is distinct from autonomic computing, which is more oriented toward application software and management of computing resources, although both share the same goals. Autonomic communication research probes into fundamental rethinking of communication, net... View full abstract»
