Electimize is an evolutionary algorithm that simulates the phenomenon of electric conduction through the flow of electrons in an electric circuit. Electimize has the ability to evaluate each value in the solution string independently, which enables it to identify the optimal solutions in a relatively short time. The algorithm utilizes Ohm’s law and Kirchhoff’s rule for the qualification of candidate solutions. A number of internal processes were designed to increase the capabilities of the algorithm with respect to the extensive search of the solutions space, identification of alternative optimal solutions, and avoidance of local optima. Electimize was proved to be very efficient in solving discrete optimization problems. This book presents the philosophy of work, theory behind the research, and the development phases of Electimize with various applications in solving combinatorial optimization problems in different engineering fields.
For the last thirty years, due to the involvement in areas such as computer science, electrical and computer engineering and operations research, graph theory has grown exponentially. Study of domination is one of the important sub-areas of graph theory and seen enormous growth due to its varied applications. The study on domination not only restricted to domination parameters, but also relates to the other parameters like independence number, covering number and others. This book deals with certain new domination parameters and their properties with other existing parameters of graphs.
We intended to write this book simple and easy enough for those mathematics majors in their sophomore year or above while boiling down some of the contents to make it appropriate as a semester long number theory textbook without including quadratic congruences, sums of squares, and continued fractions. This book is not only suitable for those graduate students in mathematics as a number theory seminar reference who are not majoring in number theory, but also for those gifted juniors and seniors in high school as a guidance who are preparing for the International Mathematics Olympiad.
Compressive sensing is a mathematical theory concerning approximate recovery of sparse vectors using the minimum number of measurements called projections. Its theory covers topics such as sparse optimisation, dimensionality reduction, information preserving projection matrices, random projection matrices and others. In this book we extend and use the theory of compressive sensing to address the challenges of limited computation power and energy supply in embedded systems. The solutions of the problems in this book provide a good reference for the fellows. The related theories, methodologies and applications are discussed in detail. This should especially be useful for researchers or engineers in the field of Internet of Things (IoTs) aiming to implement the high performance applications on the resource constrained devices.
Despite representing a majority of the college student population, a surprising lack of research has focused on the unique issues and needs of commuter students. This volume reviews the contemporary research and thinking about commuters. Topics include: • theoretical perspectives and discussions of foremost topics and issues, • specific examples for applying contemporary research with students of color, students with disabilities, and online students, • perspectives for immediate work and strategic planning, and • practical applications, recommendations, and suggestions for supporting commuter students. The volume has four major sections: theory, profiles and issues, support and services, and general applications. This is the 150th volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly series. An indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals, New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.
This is a detailed approach on the application of the pertubation theory. In addition, chaotic states are also studied, as well as the plasma waves. The plasma waves are especially studied as a contribution to the attempt of achieving the thermonuclear fusion. Many instabilities were stabilised with external intervention and chaotic plasma behaviours were observed. Finally, detailed solutions to hydrodynamic problems are given by using the pertubation theory.
This research examined constructivism when applied in a 1:1 Chromebook program using Google Applications in an elementary and high school classroom in the upper Midwest of the USA. Students were provided with a Chromebook and a Google account. Teachers were trained in how to use Google Applications and encouraged to use the collaboration available. The study was over a spring semester in 2014 during the initial implementation of the program. Data were collected through interviews of teachers, administrators, and parents involved with the program. Results indicated student learning is enhanced when students are provided with the tools to initiate learning activities with peers as well as participate in teacher-created activities. Teachers need to provide activities to encourage students to interact with others. Student achievement can be enhanced through online collaboration.
