A classification learning algorithm robust to irrelevant features
Presence of irrelevant features is a fact of life in many realworld applications of classification learning. Although nearest-neighbor classification algorithms have emerged as a promising approach to machine learning tasks ...

A logic programming framework for modelling temporal objects
We present a general approach for modeling temporal aspects of objects in a logic programming framework. Change is formulated in the context of a database which stores explicitly a record of all changes that have occurred ...
Squatter (gecekondu) housing versus apartment housing-Turkish rural-to-urban migrant residents perspectives
This paper investigates the meaning of squatter (gecekondu) and apartment housing for rural-to-urban migrant residents and their perceptions and preferences regarding this issue in the context of Turkey. The research, ...
The meaning of city living for rural migrant women and their role in migration: the case of Turkey
This article explores the meaning of city living for Turkish women and the role women play both in the migration process and in establishing their lives in the city. It brings out the voices of women and lets them speak ...
Specifications are necessarily informal or: some more myths of formal methods
We reconsider the concept of specification in order to bring new insights into the debate of formal versus non-formal methods in computer science. In our view, the correctness of a useful program corresponds to an objective ...
A real-time concurrency control protocol for main-memory database systems
Protocols developed so far for concurrency control in real-time database systems have assumed a dynamic acquisition of data resources as it is impossible to predict which instances of relations will actually be accessed ...
Algorithms for efficient vectorization of repeated sparse power system network computations
Standard sparsity-based algorithms used in power system appllcations need to be restructured for efficient vectorization due to the extremely short vectors processed. Further, intrinsic architectural features of vector ...
Chirp filtering in the fractional Fourier domain
(Optical Society of America, 1994-11-10)
In the Wigner domain of a one-dimensional function, a certain chirp term represents a rotated line delta function. On the other hand, a fractional Fourier transform (FRT) can be associated with a rotation of the ...
