This paper considers the robust stability analysis problem for a class of uncertain stochastic neural net-
works with time-varying delay. Based on the Lyapunov functional method, and by resorting to the new
technique for estimating the upper bound of the stochastic derivative of Lyapunov functionals,...
Pages: 10 - 16
Clustering algorithms give general description of clusters, listing number of clusters and member entities in those
clusters. However, these algorithms lack in generating cluster description in the form of pattern. From data mining
perspective, pattern learning from clusters is as important as cluster...

The significant economic contributions of the tourism industry in recent years impose an unprecedented force for
data mining and machine learning methods to analyze tourism data. The intrinsic problems of raw data in tourism
are largely related to the complexity, noise and nonlinearity in the data...
Pages: 27 - 38
Feature weighing methods are commonly used to find the relative significance among a set of features that are
effectively used by the retrieval methods to search image sequences efficiently from large databases. As evidenced
in the current literature, dynamic textures (image sequences with regular...

Appropriate organization of video databases is essential for pertinent indexing and retrieval of visual information.
This paper proposes a new feature called Block Intensity Comparison Code (BICC) for video classification and an
unsupervised shot change detection algorithm to detect the shot changes...
Pages: 51 - 59
Light-weight flexible arms will most likely constitute the next generation robots due to their large payload carrying
capacities at high speeds and less power demand. Control problem of robots with flexible members is more
complex compared to rigid robots due to vibrations during the motion. This...

This paper intends to classify the Ljubljana Breast Cancer dataset using C4.5 Decision Tree and Nai?ve Bayes
classifiers. In this work, classification is carriedout using two methods. In the first method, dataset is analysed using
all the attributes in the dataset. In the second method, attributes...
Pages: 69 - 82
The proposed relational fuzzy clustering method, called FRFP ( fuzzy relational fixed point), is based on determining a
fixed point of a function of the desired membership matrix. The ethod is compared to other relational clustering
methods. Simulations show the method to be very effective and less...
Pages: 83 - 90
n this paper, we shall firstly illustrate why we should discuss the Aumann type set-valued Lebesgue
integral of a set-valued stochastic process with respect to time t under the condition that the set-valued
stochastic process takes nonempty compact subset of d -dimensional Euclidean space. After...
Pages: 91 - 98
In addition to GA-deception, the lack of fitness differences among low-order schemata can also degrade GA's search. Therefore, a coding should present adequate superior low-order building blocks at the early stage of search. This paper aims to reveal the inherent periodicity in the search process of...
