UTILITY BASED DATA GATHERING IN MOBILE SENSOR NETWORK

Traditional data gathering approaches cannot be applied to Mobile Sensor Network (MSN) due to sparse network density and sensor node mobility. In this paper, we propose a utility based data gathering protocol (UDG). The distance utility is used to indicate the closeness between sensor nodes and the sink node, and the activity utility is used to evaluate the ability of sensor nodes acting as relays. UDG combines the distance utility with the activity utility to make routing decisions. It also

Equivalence on Quadratic Lyapunov Function Based Algorithms in Stochastic Networks

Quadratic Lyapunov function based Algorithms (QLAs) for stochastic network optimization problems, which are cross-layer scheduling algorithms designed by Lyapunov optimization technique, have been widely used and studied. In this paper, we investigate the performance of using Lyapunov drift and perturbation in QLAs. By analyzing attraction points and utility performance of four variants of OQLA (Original QLA), we examine the rationality of OQLA for using the first-order part of an upper bound

PASSIVE SYSTEMS IN RAISING ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF PUBLIC UTILITY BUILDINGS – ACTION SIMULATIONS

Public utility buildings are formally, structurally and functionally complex entities. Frequently the process of their design involves retroactive reconsideration of energy engineering issues, once a building concept has already been completed. At that stage minor formal corrections are made along with the design of the external layer of the building, satisfying or even exceeding applicable standards. Architecture students do the same when designing assigned public utility buildings. It can be

Explorative Visualization of Citation Patterns in Social Network Research

We propose a visual representation of bibliographic data based on shared references. Our method employs a distance metric that is derived from bibliographic coupling and then subjected to fast approximate multidimensional scaling. Its utility is demonstrated by an explorative analysis of social network publications that, most notably, depicts the genesis of an area now commonly referred to as network science. However, the example also illustrates some common pitfalls in bibliometric analysis.

An exploration of group-based compassion-focused therapy for adolescents and their parents

differences between the experimental and control groups (except for the control group mothers, whose mean self-compassion score significantly increased). This suggests that some patients seem to benefit from group-based CFT in ways similar to the benefits of specialized therapeutic approaches. However, some patients might need a more individualized approach. Further research into the utility of CFT for adolescents with MH problems and their parents, as well as the long-term clinical effects of CFT for

Can the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) help characterize the types of psychopathologic conditions driving child psychiatry referrals?

categorical taxonomic systems can be viewed as complimentary to each other rather than competing. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of the CBCL to aid in characterizing specific domains of psychopathology and dysfunction affecting youth referred to a child and adolescent clinic with the overarching goal of gaining better insights as to the specific problems driving clinical referrals. We believe that this knowledge can facilitate the triage of referred youth to the clinician with the

Genetic epilepsies. remarks on the proposed “organization of the Epilepsies”

the categories “benign” syndromes of early childhood, epileptic encephalopathies, and fever-associated syndromes, have their utility. Conclusions. The large number of genetic defects in the epilepsies complicates their analysis. However, it is anticipated that novel genetic methods, that are able to analyze all known genes at a reasonable price, will help identify novel diagnostic and therapeutic avenues, including prognostic and genetic counseling. Today it is already possible to

Intraspecific variation in phenotypic and phylogenetic features among Pratylenchus penetrans isolates from Wisconsin, USA

to Wisconsin in vegetatively propagated crops such as potato or in grain contaminated with soil peds. It would be interesting to compare Wisconsin and German isolates, as 37% of the state’s citizens in 1890 originated from Germany and most were farmers (Wyman, 1968). There are many approaches and characters useful for studying intraspecific variability for nematodes. Our results echo previous studies (Janssen et al., 2017; Ozbayrak et al., 2019) in demonstrating the utility of the COI mtDNA gene
