Lagrangian formulation of electromagnetic fields in nondispersive medium by means of the extended Euler-Lagrange differential equation
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2008)
This work is concerned with the Lagrangian formulation of electromagnetic fields. Here, the extended Euler-Lagrange differential equation for continuous, nondispersive media is employed. The Lagrangian density for ...
Detection of hidden hostile/terrorist groups in harsh territories by using animals as mobile biological sensors
Terrorism is the greatest threat to national security and cannot be defeated by conventional military force alone. In critical areas such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Turkey, regular forces cannot reach these hostile/terrorist ...
Work-related challenges for individuals who are visually impaired in Turkey
(AMER FOUNDATION BLIND, 2008)
Various aspects of the working life of people who are visually impaired were investigated in a telephone survey conducted in Turkey. Although the participants performed many types of jobs successfully, many issues need to ...
On the nearest parametric approximation of a fuzzy number
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2008)
Many nearest parametric approximation methods of fuzzy sets are proposed in the literature. It is clear that the specific approximations may lead to the loss of information about fuzziness. To overcome this problem, most ...
A new electronically tunable phase shifter employing current-controlled current conveyors
(ELSEVIER GMBH, URBAN & FISCHER VERLAG, 2008)
A new canonical current-mode (CM) filter topology is presented. It realizes first-order allpass filtering functions using two dual-output current-controlled cur-rent conveyors (DO-CCCII) and a single capacitor. The topology ...
RATE-VISUAL-DISTORTION OPTIMIZED EXTRACTION WITH QUALITY LAYERS FOR SCALABLE CODING OF STEREO VIDEOS
The Quality Layers concept is proposed and adopted in the JSVM in order to ensure an optimal adaptation in a rate-distortion sense [I]. In this paper it is extended to multiview case for scalable coding of stereo videos. ...
Necessary condition of optimality for stochastic control systems with variable structure
(VILNIUS GEDIMINAS TECHNICAL UNIV PRESS, TECHNIKA, 2008)
It is considered control system with variable structure described stochastic differential equations. A maximum principle for some non-linear stochastic control system is proved.
Classification of EEG recordings by using fast independent component analysis and artificial neural network
Since there is no definite decisive factor evaluated by the experts, visual analysis of EEG signals in time domain may be inadequate. Routine clinical diagnosis requests to analysis of EEG signals. Therefore, a number of ...
Applications of parametric spectral estimation methods on detection of power system harmonics
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE SA, 2008)
Harmonics are the major power quality problems in industrial and commercial power systems. Several methods for detection of power system harmonics have been investigated by engineers due to increasing harmonic pollution. ...
Negotiators' profit predicted by cognitive reappraisal, suppression of emotions, misrepresentation of information, and tolerance of ambiguity
(SAGE PUBLICATIONS INC, 2008)
This study examined the relationship between negative emotions and variables that affect negotiators' profit. Based on a simulated negotiation, this study induced emotions by providing negative feedback on how negotiating ...
