In this paper we present a new vector ordering â‰¤RGB for colours modelled in the RedGreenBlue colour
model. The RedGreenBlue colour model becomes with this new ordering and associated minimum
and maximum operators a complete lattice. We also have defined a complement co for colours in the

In a multilingual country like India, a document may contain text words in more than one language. For a
multilingual environment, multi lingual Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system is needed to read the
multilingual documents. So, it is necessary to identify different language regions of...

Feature subset selection, applied as a pre-
processing step to machine learning, is valuable in
dimensionality reduction, eliminating irrelevant data and
improving classifier performance. In the classic formulation of
the feature selection problem, it is assumed that all the
features are available...

This paper addresses the Hybrid Flow Shop (HFS) scheduling problems to minimize the makespan value.
In recent years, much attention is given to heuristic and search techniques. Genetic algorithms (GAs) are
also known as efficient heuristic and search techniques. This paper proposes an efficient genetic...

Evaluation is a process that analyzes elements in order to achieve different objectives such as quality
inspection, marketing and other fields in industrial companies. This paper focuses on sensory evaluation
where the evaluated items are assessed by a panel of experts according to the knowledge...

This paper provides a literature review in clinical decision support systems (CDSSs) with a
focus on the way knowledge bases are constructed, and how inference mechanisms and group
decision making methods are used in CDSSs. Particular attention is paid to the uncertainty
handling capability of...

Artificial Immune Systems (AIS), which is inspired
by the nature immune system, has been applied for solving
complex computational problems in classification, pattern rec-
ognition, and optimization. In this paper, the theory of the
natural immune system is first briefly introduced. Next, we...

In this paper, we shall firstly illustrate why we should introduce set-valued stochastic integrals, and then
we shall discuss some properties of set-valued stochastic processes and the relation between a set-valued
stochastic process and its selection set. After recalling the Aumann type definition...

Probability density estimation (PDF) is a task of primary importance in many contexts, including Bayesian learning
and novelty detection. Despite the wide variety of methods at disposal to estimate PDF, only a few of them are
widely used in practice by data analysts. Among the most used methods...
