A Case-Based Reasoning Approach for Evaluating and Selecting Human Resource Management Information Systems Projects

This paper presents a case-based reasoning (CBR) approach for evaluating and selecting human resource management information systems (IS) projects in an organization. The concept on case-based distance is introduced for measuring the degree of similarity between each case in the case base and the new case. To avoid the inconsistency of the decision maker’s subjective assessment, an induction technique is applied to help assign the importance of the criteria in the similarity measure. A human resource management IS project evaluation and selection problem is presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach.

Study on the Positioning of Forestry Insect Pest Based on DEM and Digital Monitoring Technique

Forests are extremely important natural resources of terrestrial ecosystem. However, forestry pests and diseases always cause prodigious loss. To protect forestry resources effectively and find diseases and pests as soon as possible, advanced digital PTZ (Pan/Tile/Zoom) and video camera were adopted. According to the azimuth angle and pitch angle returned from the digital PTZ in real time, with the classical Bresenham algorithm extended to three-dimensional space, a radial in this direction was obtained. And then, combining the geographic spatial information supplied by DEM (Digital Elevation Model), the forestry diseases and pests could be positioned through searching along this direction. This method can position the area of forestry disasters effectively and rapidly, which is beneficial to realize the sustainable development of forest resources.

Theory and Algorithm Based on the General Similar Relationship between the Approximate Reduction

On fundamental aspect of variable precision rough approximate reduction is an important mechanism for knowledge discovery. This paper mainly deals with attribute reductions of an inconsistent decision information system based on a dependence space. Through the concept of inclusion degree, a generalized decision distribution function is first constructed. A decision distribution relation is then defined. On the basis of this decision distribution relation, a dependence analogy relation representation of VPRS data space is proposed, and an equivalence congruence based on the attribute sets is also obtained. Applying the congruence on a dependence space, new approaches to find a distribution consistent set are formulated. The theorems for judging distribution consistent sets are also established by using these congruences and the decision distribution relation.

Effective Software Fault Localization by Statistically Testing the Program Behavior Model

Existing Statistical fault localization approaches locate bugs by testing statistical behavior of each predicate and propose fault relevant predicates as nearest points to faults. In this paper, we present a novel statistical approach employing a weighted graph, elicited from run-time information of a program. The predicates are considered as nodes; an edge is denoting a run-time path between two predicates and its label is the number of simultaneous occurrence of connected predicates in the run. Firstly, a typical graph, representing failed run is contrasted with whole graphs of passed runs to find the two most similar graphs of the passed runs and failed runs and discriminative edges are chosen as suspicious edges. In next phase, we statistically test the distribution of the suspicious edges to find the most fault relevant edges; to this end, we apply a normality test on the suspicious edges and based on the test result, we use a parametric or non-parametric hypothesis testing to discover the most fault relevant edges. We conduct the experimental study based on Siemens test suite and the results show the proposing approach is remarkable.

Numerical Analysis of Interface Crack Propagation in Reinforced Concrete Beams Strengthened with FRP by Extended Isoparametric Finite Element Method

Extended isoparametric finite method (XIFEM) consists in enriching the basis of the classical finite element method and taking into account the discontinuity of the displacement field across the crack by a discontinuous function along the crack line. It simulates the discontinuous character resulted from discontinuity such as crack or joint and by some trigonometric basis functions around the crack tip to embody singularity at the end of discontinuity. With the improved XIFEM, the tracking of crack propagation in reinforced concrete beams strengthened with FRP is simulated and the failure model is analyzed. Compared with the traditional finite element method, the XIFEM allows crack surface to be in any position of finite element mesh without dense mesh near the crack tips and without re-meshing, therefore crack growth is traced and modeled effectively. The results show the effectiveness and superiority of the improved XIFEM.

No Regret Learning for Sensor Relocation in Mobile Sensor Networks

Sensor relocation is a critical issue because it affects the coverage quality and capability of a mobile sensor network. In this paper, the problem of sensor relocation is formulated as a repeated multi-player game. At each step of repeated interactions, each node uses a distributed no-regret algorithm to optimize its own coverage while minimizing the locomotion energy consumption. We prove that if all nodes adhere to this algorithm to play the game, collective behavior converges to a pure Nash equilibrium. Simulation results show that a good coverage performance can be obtained when a pure Nash equilibrium is achieved.

An Efficient and Lightweight User Authentication Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks

As wireless sensor networks(WSNs) are susceptible to attacks and sensor nodes have limited resources, it is necessary to design a secure and lightweight user authentication protocol for WSNs. Over the past few years, a few user authentication schemes for WSNs were proposed, in which the concept of timestamps were employed without exception. Analysis shows that it brings new security flaws. An efficient and lightweight user authentication scheme for WSNs is proposed in this paper. In proposed scheme, we employ one-way hash function with a secret key. With the help of smart card, mutual authentication is performed using a challenge-response handshake between user and gateway node in both directions, and it avoids the problem of time synchronization between smart card and the gateway node. An analysis of the scheme is presented and it shows its resilience against classical types of attacks, and it adds less computational overhead than other schemes.

Discrete Construction of Power Network Voronoi Diagram

Power Network Voronoi diagrams are difficult to construct when the position relation of road segments are complicated. In traditional algorithm, The distance between objects must be calculated by selecting the minimum distance to their shared borders and doubling this value. When road segments cross or coincide with each other, production process will be extremely complex because we have to consider separately these parts. In this paper, we use discrete construction of network Voronoi diagrams. The algorithm can get over all kinds of shortcomings that we have just mentioned. So it is more useful and effective than the traditional ones. We also construct model according the algorithm. And the application example shows that the algorithm is both simple and useful, and it is of high potential value in practice.

Generalized Lax-Friedrichs Schemes for Linear Advection Equation with Damping

To analyze local oscillations existing in the generalized Lax-Friedrichs(LxF) schemes for computing of the linear advection equation with damping, we observed local oscillations in numerical solutions for the discretization of some special initial data under stable conditions. Then we raised three propositions about how to control those oscillations via some numerical examples. In order to further explain this, we first investigated the discretization of initial data that trigger the chequerboard mode, the highest frequency mode. Then we proceeded to use the discrete Fourier analysis and the modified equation analysis to distinguish the dissipative and dispersive effects of numerical schemes for low frequency and high frequency modes, respectively. We find that the relative phase errors are at least offset by the numerical dissipation of the same order, otherwise the oscillation could be caused. The LxF scheme is conditionally stable and once adding the damping into linear advection equation, the damping has resulted in a slight reduction of the modes’ height; We also can find even large damping, the oscillation becomes weaker as time goes by, that is to say the chequerboard mode decay.

Extension Limb Action Recognition Based on Acceleration Median

An extension limb action recognition method based on acceleration median (EULAR-AM) is proposed in this paper. Stretch arm has the feature that the arm’s acceleration increases firstly, and then decreases. So the EULAR-AM chooses the acceleration median of the arm outstretching process and the direction of acceleration at the initial moment of arm outstretching as its recognition characteristic values. It can reduce the affection of outstretching speed to the characteristic value of limb action, and can achieve the goal that the different outstretching speed actions having same direction could be described by the same characters. Then combining the extension recognition method, the EULAR-AM recognized the limb action. The experiment results show that the recognition accuracy rate of the EULAR-AM is 93.2 %.

Grid Transaction-Level Concurrency Control Protocol

In this paper, the grid transaction-level (GTL) concurrency control protocol is proposed. According to the operating characteristics of the grid services, the grid transaction-level concurrency control protocol re-defines four types of transaction operations: read operation, write operation ,append operation, look operation. When the speculative shadows of transactions are created , the more redundancy resources in the grid, the higher the priority of transaction, the shorter the deadline of transaction, the more the number of speculative shadows that the transaction can establish; less and vice versa. If there is a new read - write conflict between the two services and a speculation shadow has to meet the needs of serialization order, it don’t need create a new speculative shadow. Finally, the theory proof shows that the grid transaction-level concurrency control protocol ensures the serialization of transactions.

Prediction for Water Surface Evaporation Based on PCA and RBF Neural Network

In order to build prediction model of the water surface evaporation so as to easily plan and manage water resources, authors presented a method with the principal component analysis(PCA) and radial basis function(RBF) neural network model for predicting the water surface evaporation. Firstly, the PCA was used to eliminate the correlation of the initial input layer data so that the problem of efficiency caused by too many input parameters and by too large network scale in neural network modeling could be solved. And then, the prediction model of water surface evaporation was built through taking the results of PCA as inputs of the RBF neural network. The research result showed that the model proposed had a better prediction accuracy that the average prediction accuracy reached 95.3%, and enhanced 5.5% and 5.0% compared with the conventional BP network and RBF network respectively, which met the requirements of actual water resources planning and provided a theoretical reference for other region of water surface evaporation forecasting.

Decimal-Integer-Coded Genetic Algorithm for Trimmed Estimator of the Multiple Linear Errors in Variables Model

The multiple linear errors-in-variables model is frequently used in science and engineering for model fitting tasks. When sample data is contaminated by outliers, the orthogonal least squares estimator isn’t robust. To obtain robust estimators, orthogonal least trimmed absolute deviation (OLTAD) estimator based on the subset of


cases(out of

We show that the OLTAD estimator has the high breakdown point and appropriate properties. Computational experiments of the OLTAD estimator of multiple linear EIV model on synthetic data is provided and the results indicate that the DICGA performs well in identifying groups of high leverage outliers in reasonable computational time and can obtain smaller objective function fitness.

Prediction of Wastewater Treatment Plants Performance Based on NW Multilayer Feedforward Small-World Artificial Neural Networks

In order to provide a tool for predicting wastewater treatment performance and form a basis for controlling the operation of the process, a reliable model is essential for any wastewater treatment plant. This would minimize the operation costs and assess the stability of environmental balance. For the multi-variable, uncertainty, non-linear characteristics of the wastewater treatment system, a NW multilayer feedforward small-world artificial neural network prediction model is established standing on the actual operation data in the wastewater treatment system. The model overcomes several disadvantages of the conventional BP neural network. Namely: slow convergence, low accuracy and difficulty in finding the global optimum. The results of model calculation show that the predicted value can better match measured value, played an effect of simulating and predicting and be able to optimize the operation status. The establishment of the predicting model provides a simple and practical way for the operation and management in wastewater treatment plant, and has good research and engineering practical value.

The problem is first divided into several sub-problems by the average principle. Then a genetic algorithm is used to solve the sub-problems including a subset of constraints. Better feasible solutions are built by a hybrid genetic algorithm; they are taken as the initial solution of the variable neighborhood search procedure.

An Improved Genetic Algorithm for Network Nodes Clustering

Nodes clustering is a useful way to construct an effective network infrastructure for large-scale distributed network applications. In this paper, network nodes are clustered by the K-medoids clustering algorithm according to their coordinates. The coordinates of network nodes are gained by Vivaldi which is a simple and lightweight network coordinates system. But K-medoids algorithm is sensitive to the initial cluster centers and easy to get stuck at the local optimal solutions. In order to improve the performance of K-medoids algorithm, KCIGA(K-medoids clustering based on improved genetic algorithm) is presented in this paper. The improved genetic algorithm that uses self-adaptive genetic operator, dynamically adjusting the crossover rate and mutation rate, can avoid premature and slow convergence phenomenon in SGA(standard genetic algorithm). Experimental results show KCIGA has good reliability and expansibility, and it is effective for clustering network nodes.

The Application of Different RBF Neural Network in Approximation

The value algorithms of classical function approximation theory have a common drawback: the compute-intensive, poor adaptability, high model and data demanding and the limitation in practical applications. Neural network can calculate the complex relationship between input and output, therefore, neural network has a strong function approximation capability. This paper describes the application of RBFNN in function approximation and interpolation of scattered data. RBF neural network uses Gaussian function as transfer function widespreadly. Using it to train data set, it needs to determine the extension of radial basis function constant SPEAD. SPEAD setting is too small, there will be an over eligibility for function approximation, while SPREAD is too large, there will be no eligibility for function approximation. This paper examines the usage of different radial functions as transferinf functions to design the neural network, and analyzes their numerical applications. Simulations show that, for the same data set, Gaussian radial basis function may not be the best.

A Requirement Group Based Web Service Scheduling Model

The growth of concurrent requests from increasing applications based on web service aggravates the load of web service, and may result in low performance or even breakdown of the invoked web service. However, some requests are similar or related, and can be integrated into a slightly complex one, which can be resolved by the service provider in a unified way. Based on this fact, a requirement group-based web service scheduling model (RGBWSSM) is proposed. It concentrates on the integration of similar or related requests and the capability matching between the integrated request and web services, both based on OWL-S. Moreover, a case study is implemented and the results show that this model is effective and useful in reducing web service load in the environment of high concurrent service requests.

Cost-Benefit Analysis for Adaptive Web Service Substitution with Compensation

Nowadays, plenty of enterprises are willing to outsource their internal business processes as services and make them accessible via the Web. Toward some business process, Web service based application require more transactional support beyond traditional transactions, In this situation, direct substitution may violate the atomicity character of transaction. This will lead to the inconsistency of transaction Web service. Moreover, executed data were stored in the memory and could not be released which consequently result in the serious results such as “missing” of data. However, most of previous works on service replacement algorithms leak the cost analysis with compensation. In this paper, we extend the substitution framework by supporting compensation. A correlation analysis and behavior matching can be executed to obtain the range of cascading compensation and decide the range of substitution. Further more, we analyze the single node substitution cost and path substitution cost in details. After that, this paper presents a cost-benefit function which considers customer’s preference and selects the optimal substitution strategy by regulating parameters at will.

Simulation of Microburst Escape with Probabilistic Pilot Model

Simulation of large aircraft approach and landing in microburst wind shear was studied for flight safety research. A real-time flight dynamics model with wind shear effects was built based on Boeing747 modeling data. A parameterized three-dimensional microburst model was formulated by vortex ring and Rankine vortex principle. Further more, a parameterized human pilot model was developed to simulate pilots’ control behavior during microburst encountering. A pilot-aircraft-microburst environment model was constructed for further study. Since pilots would have variable control behavior, a group of pilot was modeled by treating the characteristic parameters as random variables. To study the safety of pitch guidance strategy recommended by FAA, the Monte Carlo Simulation was adopted to obtain a numerical approximation of the probability density function of the minimum altitude. The results indicate that the 3-D microburst model can generate wind vectors with high fidelity. The dynamics model with wind shear effects is reasonable and valid.

This thesis gives a basic calculation method about the radiation intensity of illumination caused by halogen-tungsten lamp like line radiation sources. A concept of average radiation intensity (ARI) of illumination was proposed to give quantification when radiation intensity is Rapidly Changed. The distribution of radiation sources influence on ARII is discussed. The numerical solution carried out by computer simulation directly confirms that the layout of radiation sources in this paper enhances the luminance uniformity. Consequently, the macroscopically inhomogeneous of the film is improved.

The Infeasible Combined Homotopy Method for a Class of Programming Problems

In this paper, a class of nonconvex programming problems with inequality constraint functions was studied, under the conditions that the boundary is regular and the feasible set is connected and bounded. At first, the infeasible constraint functions were constructed. Then, the infeasible combined homotopy equation was constructed to solve this problem. At last the existence of a smooth homotopy path from any initial point to the solution of the problem was established and the convergence of the method is proved.

Generating Query Plans for Distributed Query Processing Using Genetic Algorithm

Query Processing is a key determinant in the overall performance of distributed databases. It requires processing of data at their respective sites and transmission of the same between them. These together constitute a distributed query processing strategy (DQP). DQP aims to arrive at an efficient query processing strategy for a given query. This strategy involves generation of efficient query plans for a distributed query. In case of distributed relational queries, the number of possible query plans grows exponentially with an increase in the number of relations accessed by the query. This number increases further when the relations, accessed by the query, have replicas at different sites. Such a large search space renders it infeasible to find optimal query plans. This paper presents a query plan generation algorithm that attempts to generate optimal query plans, for a given query, using genetic algorithm. The query plans so generated involve fewer sites, thus leading to efficient query processing. Further, experimental results show that the proposed algorithm converges quickly towards optimal query plans for an observed crossover and mutation probability.
