In this paper we introduce a new procedure for classification and change detection by the integration in a fusion process using hybrid DSmT model, both, the contextual information obtained from a supervised ICM classification with constraints and the temporal information with the use of two images taken at two different dates. Secondly, we have proposed a new decision rule based on the DSmP transformation, which is as an alternative and extension and overcoming the inherent limitations of the...

This paper describes a system capable of detecting and tracking various people using a new approach based on color, stereo vision and fuzzy logic. Initially, in the people detection phase, two fuzzy systems are used to filter out false positives of a face detector. Then, in the tracking phase, a new fuzzy logic based particle filter (FLPF) is proposed to fuse stereo and color information assigning different confidence levels to each of these information sources. Information regarding...

Hu Chang-Wei considers through analysis on the basis of the derivation of the Lorentz transformation by means of fluid mechanics, that Newtonian absolute space-time theory is most basic and real space-time theory, where the physical vacuum is a compressible superfluid, a change of its density can cause a change of actual space-time standards, and thus, leads up to the quantitative effect deviated absolute space-time theory. The effects of relativity and quantum are all quantitative effects, and...
In this paper, we study b−Smarandache m1m2 curves of biharmonic new type b−slant helix in the Sol3. We characterize the b−Smarandache m1m2 curves in terms of their Bishop curvatures. Finally, we find out their explicit parametric equations in the Sol3.

A Florentinís Homonym uses homonyms in an upside-down way, entangling grammar and language rules, defying orthography, loving mistakes, employing tongue hindering; ambiguities of words and senses (homonymic clash); or sentences with two or more homonymic forms put together - either as separate homonymic phrase, or as a chain of homonyms; - and, of course, the eternal humor which helps as does the salt in the food.

Abstract In November 2005, access to all recordings of Grateful Dead shows on the Internet Live Music Archive was abruptly discontinued. Over the next nine days, the band, their fans, and the Archive argued the matter on a nationwide stage, before a compromise on access was reached. The controversy touched on issues of copyright, ownership, and the effects of the Internet on making fan projects more widespread and organized than ever before. This case study traces the history of the controversy...

Using both Monte Carlo simulations and mean field calculations, we calculate three response functions: the isobaric specific heat $C_P$, the isothermal compressibility $K_T$, and the isobaric thermal expansivity $\alpha_P$. At low temperature $T$, we find two distinct maxima in $C_P$, $K_T$ and $|\alpha_P|$, all converging...

A dense form of matter is formed in relativistic heavy ion collisions. The constituent degrees of freedom in this dense matter are currently unknown. Long-range, forward-backward multiplicity correlations (LRC) are expected to arise due to multiple partonic interactions. Model independent and dependent arguments suggest that such correlations are due to multiple partonic interactions. These correlations are predicted in the context of the Dual Parton Model (DPM). The DPM describes soft partonic...

The pendulum, in the presence of linear dissipation and a constant torque, is a non-integrable, nonlinear differential equation. In this paper, using the idea of rotated vector fields, derives the relation between the applied force $\beta$ and the periodic solution, and a conclusion that the critical value of $\beta$ is a fixed one in the over damping situation. These results are of practical significance in the study of charge-density waves in physics.

Let $M$ be a closed, orientable, irreducible, geometrizable 3-manifold. We prove that the profinite topology on the fundamental group of $\pi_1(M)$ is efficient with respect to the JSJ decomposition of $M$. We go on to prove that $\pi_1(M)$ is good, in the sense of Serre, if all the pieces of the JSJ decomposition are. We also prove that if $M$ is a graph manifold then $\pi_1(M)$ is conjugacy separable.

We present an integrability-preserving recursion relation for the explicit construction of long-range spin chain Hamiltonians. These chains are generalizations of the Haldane-Shastry and Inozemtsev models and they play an important role in recent advances in string/gauge duality. The method is based on arbitrary nearest-neighbour integrable spin chains and it sheds light on the moduli space of deformation parameters. We also derive the closed chain asymptotic Bethe equations.

Our main result is a new phenomenon in two-parameter families having a saddle-node bifurcation upon changing the first parameter.

In the present paper, we compare the linear syzygies of the inner projections with those of $X$ and obtain a theorem on `embedded linear syzygies' as one of our main results.

The real multiplication conjecture of Yu. I. Manin says that abelian extensions of the real quadratic number fields come from the so-called pseudo-lattices with real multiplication; the conjecture is based on an observation that for the imaginary quadratic fields such extensions are obtained from the lattices with complex multiplication. In this paper we prove Manin's conjecture using theory of the Hecke eigenforms (of weight two) and associated measured foliations on the modular surfaces.

In this paper, we develop a general approach for probabilistic estimation and optimization. An explicit formula and a computational approach are established for controlling the reliability of probabilistic estimation based on a mixed criterion of absolute and relative errors. By employing the Chernoff-Hoeffding bound and the concept of sampling, the minimization of a probabilistic function is transformed into an optimization problem amenable for gradient descendent algorithms.

In wireless networks, the knowledge of nodal distances is essential for several areas such as system configuration, performance analysis and protocol design. In order to evaluate distance distributions in random networks, the underlying nodal arrangement is almost universally taken to be an infinite Poisson point process. While this assumption is valid in some cases, there are also certain impracticalities to this model. For example, practical networks are non-stationary, and the number of...

We formulate the homotopy associative (A_\infty) category of D-particle field states via gauged S-duality. By invoking the minimal model theorem of this D-particle field category, we investigate the equivalence principle and the A_\infty covariance principle in the theory of gauged S-duality considered as D-particle field theory.

We describe an interesting interplay between symbolic dynamics, the structure of the Mandelbrot set, permutations of periodic points achieved by analytic continuation, and Galois groups of certain polynomials. Internal addresses are a convenient and efficient way of describing the combinatorial structure of the Mandelbrot set, and of giving geometric meaning to the ubiquitous kneading sequences in human-readable form (Sections 3 and 4). A simple extension, \emph{angled internal addresses},...

This paper reviews and extends some recent results on the multivariate fractional Brownian motion (mfBm) and its increment process. A characterization of the mfBm through its covariance function is obtained. Similarly, the correlation and spectral analyses of the increments are investigated. On the other hand we show that (almost) all mfBm's may be reached as the limit of partial sums of (super)linear processes. Finally, an algorithm to perfectly simulate the mfBm is presented and illustrated...

A key tool in the study of algebraic surfaces and their moduli is Brieskorn's simultaneous resolution for families of algebraic surfaces with simple (du Val or ADE) singularities. In this paper we show that a similar statement holds for families of curves with at worst simple (ADE) singularities. For a family $\mathscr X\to B$ of ADE curves, we give an explicit and natural resolution of the rational map $B\to \bar M_g$. Moreover, we discuss a lifting of this map to the moduli stack $ \bar...

The capacity per unit cost, or equivalently minimum cost to transmit one bit, is a well-studied quantity. It has been studied under the assumption of full synchrony between the transmitter and the receiver. In many applications, such as sensor networks, transmissions are very bursty, with small amounts of bits arriving infrequently at random times. In such scenarios, the cost of acquiring synchronization is significant and one is interested in the fundamental limits on communication without...

A novel dynamical model for the study of operational risk in banks and suitable for the calculation of the Value at Risk (VaR) is proposed. The equation of motion takes into account the interactions among different bank's processes, the spontaneous generation of losses via a noise term and the efforts made by the bank to avoid their occurrence. Since the model is very general, it can be tailored on the internal organizational structure of a specific bank by estimating some of its parameters...

Testing for the significance of a subset of regression coefficients in a linear model, a staple of statistical analysis, goes back at least to the work of Fisher who introduced the analysis of variance (ANOVA). We study this problem under the assumption that the coefficient vector is sparse, a common situation in modern high-dimensional settings. Suppose we have $p$ covariates and that under the alternative, the response only depends upon the order of $p^{1-\alpha}$ of those, $0\le\alpha\le1$....

In electronic devices where a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) comprises one or both sides of a plane capacitor, the resulting capacitance $C$ can be larger than the "geometric capacitance" $C_g$ determined by the physical separation $d$ between electrodes. This larger capacitance is known to result from the Coulomb correlations between individual electrons within the low density 2DEG, which lead to a negative thermodynamic density of states (negative compressibility).

We show that for some positive constant C, with high probability as $n \to \infty$, the maximum degree in G is at most $C n^{3/5}\sqrt[5]{\log n}$.

The fundamental higher-order Landau plasma modes are known to be generally heavily damped. We show that these modes for the ion component in a weakly ionized plasma can be substantially modified by ion-neutral collisions and a dc electric field driving ion flow so that some of them can become unstable. This instability is expected to naturally occur in presheaths of gas discharges at sufficiently small pressures and thus affect sheaths and discharge structures.
