(Australasian Association for Logic, 2017)
The standard propositional exposition of necessary and su cient conditions, as available in introductory logic texts, leads to a contradiction. It should be abolished.
Sliding windows over uncertain data streams
(Springer U K, 2015)
Uncertain data streams can have tuples with both value and existential uncertainty. A tuple has value uncertainty when it can assume multiple possible values. A tuple is existentially uncertain when the sum of the ...
Sterilization of PMMA microfluidic chips by various techniques and investigation of material characteristics
The sterilization of microfluidic chips is a vital step of the fabrication process prior to the customer use in biomedical applications. The aim of this study was to analyze the influence of different sterilization techniques ...
Nonlinear laser lithography to control surface properties of stainless steel
(Elsevier BV, 2015)
In the present work a novel method to improve the surface properties of stainless steel is presented and discussed. The method, based on the use of a high repetition rate femtosecond Yb fibre laser, permits generation of ...
Computation of optimal H∞ controllers and Approximations of fractional order systems: A tutorial review
(Applied Mathematics Scientific Research Institute, 2013)
This paper briefly reviews the recent techniques in the field of fractional order systems, and concentrates on the design of 'H00 optimal controllers for a magnetic suspension system model, derived in (25). The plant ...
Computational thermal homogenization of concrete
Computational thermal homogenization is applied to the microscale and mesoscale of concrete sequentially. Microscale homogenization is based on a 3D micro-CT scan of hardened cement paste (HCP). Mesoscale homogenization ...
Multiple slow waves and relevant transverse transmission and confinement in chirped photonic crystals
(OSA Publishing, 2014-09-02)
The dispersion properties of rod-type chirped photonic crystals (PhCs) and non-channeled transmission in the direction of the variation of structural parameters from one cell of such a PhC to another are studied. Two types ...
Analysis of thin dielectric cylindrical reflector having an arbitrary conic section profile illuminated by complex line source: H-polarization case
Arbitrary conic section profile and thin dielectric reflector is analyzed by using the Method of Analytical Regularization (MAR) technique based on Riemann-Hilbert problem and Fourier inversion procedures. The reflector ...
Analytical performance modeling of elastic optical links with aligned spectrum allocation
(Elsevier BV North-Holland, 2015)
Abstract Elastic optical networking has recently been proposed for use in optical transport networks to cope with increasingly heterogeneous and dynamic demand patterns. In this paper, we study the blocking performance of ...
Successive cancellation decoding of polar codes for the two-user binary-input MAC
This paper describes a successive cancellation decoder of polar codes for the two-user binary-input multi-access channel that achieves the full admissible rate region. The polar code for the channel is generated from ...
