A feedback vertex set of a graph is a subset of vertices that contains at least one vertex from every cycle in the graph. The problem considered is that of finding a minimum feedback vertex set given a weighted and undirected graph. We present a…

A method is developed to take the eddy currents in lamination stacks into account with the finiteelement method using the threedimensional (3D) magnetic vector potential magnetodynamic formulation. It consists in converting the stacked…

For any integer n , a modified transportation problem with 2 n + 2 nodes is constructed which requires 2 n + 2 n 2 2 iterations using all but one of the most commonly used minimum cost flow algorithms.

Until now, the analysis of fault tolerance of peertopeer systems usually only covers random faults of some kind. Contrary to traditional algorithmic research, faults as well as joins and leaves occurring in a worstcase manner are hardly…

We propose a way of measuring the similarity of a Boolean vector to a given set of Boolean vectors, motivated in part by certain data mining or machine learning problems. We relate the similarity measure to one based on Hamming distance and we…

Operations Research (OR) is gaining importance in public health interventions and programmes increasingly both nationally and internationally. The focus of these research techniques is to constantly guide the programme implementation to achieve best…

Particular focus in this paper is on quantum information protocols, which exploit quantummechanical effects in an essential way. The particular examples we shall use to illustrate our approach will be teleportation (Benett et al., 1993),…

In this paper the following is proved: Let K ⊂ E2 be a smooth strictly convex body, and let L ⊂ E2 be a line. Assume that for every point x ∈ L\K the two tangent segments from x to K have the same length, and the line joining the two contact points…

The uniqueness of a binary doublyeven selfdual [48, 24, 12] code is used to prove that a selforthogonal 5(48, 12, 8) design, as well as some of its derived and residual designs, including a quasisymmetric 2(45, 9, 8) design, are all unique up…

A Companion to Phenomenology and Existentialism is a complete guide to two of the dominant movements of philosophy in the twentieth century.Written by a team of leading scholars, including Dagfinn Føllesdal, J. N. Mohanty, Robert Solomon, JeanLuc…

The panel data unit root test suggested by Levin and Lin (LL) has been widely used in several applications, notably in papers on tests of the purchasing power parity hypothesis. This test is based on a very restrictive hypothesis which is rarely…

Logistic regression is a workhorse of statistics and is closely related to methods used in Machine Learning, including the Perceptron and the Support Vector Machine. This note compares eight different algorithms for computing the maximum…

There are many (mixed) integer programming formulations of the Steiner problem in networks. The corresponding linear programming relaxations are of great interest particularly, but not exclusively, for computing lower bounds; but not much has been…

Ternary selfdual codes have been classified for lengths up to 20. At length 24, a classification of only extremal selfdual codes is known. In this paper, we give a complete classification of ternary selfdual codes of length 24 using the…

This paper attempts to cover the main algorithms used for clustering, with a brief and simple description of each. For each algorithm, I have selected the most common version to represent the entire family. Advantages and drawbacks are commented for…

Repositioning existing drugs for new therapeutic uses is an efficient approach to drug discovery. We have developed a computational drug repositioning pipeline to perform largescale molecular docking of small molecule drugs against protein drug…

BACKGROUND: Many preventable diseases such as ischemic heart diseases and breast cancer prevail at a large scale in the general population. Computerized decision support systems are one of the solutions for improving the quality of prevention…

The hope that mathematical methods employed in the investigation of formal logic would lead to purely computational methods for obtaining mathematical theorems goes back to Leibniz and has been revived by Peano around the turn of the century and by…

In 19971998, the Netherlands experienced a large epidemic of classical swine fever (CSF). The magnitude of this epidemic stressed the role information systems could play in supporting the management during an eradication campaign. The enforcement…

A general model for the coevolution of cooperating species is presented. This model is instantiated and tested in the domain of function optimization, and compared with a traditional GAbased function optimizer. The results are encouraging in two…
