Modeling and querying temporal data
(IGI Global, 2005)
The paper discusses modelling temporal variation of data in the context of the relational data model. This is done by employing time-stamps, which leads to two possible approaches: adding time-stamps to tuples and using ...
Frequent itemset mining, and association rules
(IGI Global, 2005)
With the advent of mass storage devices, databases have become larger and larger. Point-of-sale data, patient medical data, scientific data, and credit card transactions are just a few sources of the ever-increasing amounts ...
A comparative analysis of software engineering with mature engineering disciplines using a problem solving perspective
(IGI Global, 2010)
Software engineering is compared with traditional engineering disciplines using a domain specific problem-solving model called Problem-Solving for Engineering Model (PSEM). The comparative analysis is performed both from ...
MoDSEL: model-driven software evolution language
(IGI Global, 2013)
Model-Driven Software Development (MDSD) aims to support the development and evolution of software intensive systems using the basic concepts of model, metamodel, and model transformation. In parallel with the ongoing ...
3D thumbnails for 3D videos with depth
(IGI Global, 2011)
In this chapter, we present a new thumbnail format for 3D videos with depth, 3D thumbnail, which helps users to understand the content by preserving the recognizable features and qualities of 3D videos. The current thumbnail ...
Effects of reordering and lumping in the analysis of discrete-time sans
(Birkhäuser, Basel, 2000)
In a recent paper ,it is shown that discrete-time stochastic automata networks (SANs) are lumpable under rather general conditions. Therein, the authors present an efficient iterative aggregation-disaggregation (IAD) ...
Desirable functionalities of intelligent CAD systems
(Amer Society of Mechanical, 1994)
Real-life situations are at the heart of an innovative theory of information aimed at some long-standing problems of philosophy. This (situation) theory was proposed more than 2 decades ago and has matured over the years. ...
A generalization of a TCP model: multiple source-destination case with arbitrary LAN as the access network
(CRC Press, 2000)
This paper introduces an analytical model of an access scheme for Wide Area Network resources. The model is based on the TCP-modified Engset model of Heyman, Lakshman, and Neidhardt. The proposed model employs a LAN ...
Learning translation templates from bilingual translation examples
A mechanism for learning lexical correspondences between two languages from sets of translated sentence pairs is presented. These lexical level correspondences are learned using analogical reasoning between two translation ...
