This paper presents a novel approach towards showing how contractor in agent-based simulation for complex warfare system such as multi-sensor battlefield reconnaissance system can be selected in Contract Net Protocol (CNP) with high efficiency. We first analyze agent and agent-based simulation framework,...

Since the multigranulation rough sets (MGRS) can be considered as the compositions of multi–independent Pawlak's rough sets, the multigranulation rough set rules (MGRS rules) are then the compositions of decision rules, which are supported by multi–independent Pawlak's rough sets. To measure...

In this paper, we introduce a fast implementation of the CT EXT algorithm for testor property identification, that is based on an accumulative binary tuple. The fast implementation of the CT EXT algorithm (one of the fastest algorithms reported), is designed to generate all the typical testors from a...

Semantic annotation of named entities for enriching unstructured content is a critical step in development of Semantic Web and many Natural Language Processing applications. To this end, this paper addresses the named entity disambiguation problem that aims at detecting entity mentions in a text and...

In real world, it is very common that some objects or concepts have properties with a time-variant or timerelated nature. Modelling this kind of objects or concepts in a (relational) database schema is possible, but time-variant and time-related attributes have an impact on the consistency of the entire...

Several applications to represent classical or fuzzy data in databases have been developed in the last two decades. However, these representations present some limitations specially related with the system portability and complexity. Ontologies provides a mechanism to represent data in an implementation-independent...

In this study, the dynamic pricing optimization problem faced by the maritime transportation service provider company is considered. The aim is to find optimal prices for each journey for each level of unsold seats by using probabilistic dynamic programming. Conjoint analysis is used to identify the...

The theory of soft sets was introduced by Molodtsov in 1999 in order to deal with uncertainties. In this paper, the notion of fuzzy soft lattice is defined and some related properties are derived, which extends the notion of a fuzzy lattice to include the algebraic structures of soft sets. Then the lattice...

Since the performance of a system of interacting peers depends strongly on their individual contributions, the ratio between their provided and consumed resources should be set in line with the social welfare improvement, without relying on a central coordinator. In this paper, we devise a self-organized...

The procurement decision problem of divisible goods is investigated, and an optimization decision method for procuring a kind of divisible goods (such as coal, oil, electricity, gas, etc.) is presented based on multi-attribute auction. Firstly, the procurement decision problem of divisible goods is converted...

Active storage can largely reduce the network traffic and application execution time. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of an active storage architecture called Oasa for object-based storage system. Compared with previous work, Oasa has the following features.(1) It provides a flexible...

Lot streaming is a technique used to split the processing of lots into several sublots (transfer batches) to allow the overlapping of operations in a multistage manufacturing systems thereby shortening the production time (makespan). The objective of this paper is to minimize the makespan and total flow...
