Weight as a predictor of perceived discrimination
Solid-state arrays and beamformers for side-looking intervascular ultrasonic imaging
(Işık Üniversitesi, 2010-06-08)
Current solid-state intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) devices use a one-dimensional (1-D) rectangular array wrapped around the cylindrical catheter. Beamforming in these devices is limited to synthetic phased array processing, ...
Relocating sensor nodes to maximize cumulative connected coverage in wireless sensor networks
(Molecular Diversity Preservation Int, 2008-04)
In order to extend the availability of the wireless sensor network and to extract maximum possible information from the surveillance area, proper usage of the power capacity of the sensor nodes is important. Our work ...
Crossing minimization in weighted bipartite graphs
(SPRINGER-VERLAG BERLIN, 2007)
Given a bipartite graph G = (L-0, L-1, E) and a fixed ordering of the nodes in L-0, the problem of finding an ordering of the nodes in L-1 that minimizes the number of crossings has received much attention in literature. ...
Molecular alignment during gel formation from methyl methacrylate: An excimer fluorescence study
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2005-05)
Glass transition during bulk polymerization was studied in free-radical cross-linking copolymerization (FCC) of methyl methacrylate (MMA) using the steady-state fluorescence (SSF) technique. Naphthalene (N) was used as a ...
Nonlinear wave modulation in a fluid-filled linearly tapered elastic tube
(Gauthier-Villars/Editions Elsevier, 2003-08)
In the present work, treating the arteries as a thin-walled, linearly tapered, prestressed elastic tube and using the reductive perturbation method, we have studied the amplitude modulation of nonlinear waves in such a ...
A parallel implementation: Real space Green's function technique
(Sage Publications, 2007-04)
We develop an MPI-based parallel algorithm to implement the real space Green's function technique for calculating the vibrational density of states corresponding to a solid. The Hamiltonian describing the interactions ...
Adaptive visual obstacle detection for mobile robots using monocular camera and ultrasonic sensor
This paper presents a novel vision based obstacle detection algorithm that is adapted from a powerful background subtraction algorithm: ViBe (VIsual Background Extractor). We describe an adaptive obstacle detection method ...
The modified reductive perturbation method as applied to Boussinesq equation: strongly dispersive case
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2005-05)
In this work, we extended the application of "the modified reductive perturbation method" to Boussinesq equation for strongly dispersive case and tried to obtain the contribution of higher order terms in the perturbation ...
