1. A Novel Approach to Selecting Contractor in Agent-based Multi-sensor Battlefield Reconnaissance Simulation

Xiong Li, Zhiming Dong, Hao Wang, Qingchao Meng, Zhentian Wang, Yiwei Zhang
Pages: 985 - 995
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,...

2. Numerical representability of fuzzy total preorders

L. Agud, R. G. Catalán, S. Díaz, E. Induráin, S. Montes
Pages: 996 - 1009
We introduce the concept of a fuzzy total preorder. Then we analyze its numerical representability through a real-valued order-preserving function defined for each -cut.

3. Local and Global Measurements of MGRS Rules

Xibei Yang, Yanqin Zhang, Jingyu Yang
Pages: 1010 - 1024
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...

4. A Fast Implementation for the Typical Testor Property Identification Based on an Accumulative Binary Tuple

Guillermo Sanchez-Diaz, Manuel Lazo-Cortes, Ivan Piza-Davila
Pages: 1025 - 1039
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...

5. Constructing Service Semantic Link Network Based on the Probabilistic Graphical Model

Anping Zhao, Yan Ma
Pages: 1040 - 1051
Automatic services collaboration calls for the development of semantically structured service network to maximize the utility of Web services. Service Semantic Link Network (S-SLN) is the semantic model for effectively managing Web service resources by the dependency relationship between services. We...

Pages: 1052 - 1067
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...

7. A Relational Model for the Possibilistic Valid-time Approach

Jose Enrique Pons, Nicolás Marín, Olga Pons, Christophe Billiet, Guy de Tré
Pages: 1068 - 1088
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...

8. An Ontology as a Tool for Representing Fuzzy Data in Relational Databases

Carmen Martinez-Cruz, IgnacioJ. Blanco, M. Amparo Vila
Pages: 1089 - 1108
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...

9. A Dynamic Pricing Model for a Maritime Transportation Service Provider

Seda Coşgun, Özlem Coşgun, Yeliz Ekinci
Pages: 1109 - 1119
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...

10. α-Generalized lock resolution method in linguistic truth-valued lattice-valued logic

Xingxing He, Yang Xu, Jun Liu, Shuwei Chen
Pages: 1120 - 1134
This paper focuses on effcient non-clausal resolution-based automated reasoning methods and algorithms for a lattice-ordered linguistic truth-valued logic, which corresponds to extensions of α-lock resolution. Firstly, α-generalized lock resolution is proposed for lattice-valued propositional...

11. Fuzzy Soft Sets and Fuzzy Soft Lattices

Yingchao Shao, Keyun Qin
Pages: 1135 - 1147
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...

12. A Self-organized Mechanism of Resource Allocation in P2P Systems

Golnaz Vakili, Siavash Khorsandi, ThanasisG. Papaioannou
Pages: 1148 - 1159
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...

13. Optimization Decision Method for Procuring Divisible Goods

Congjun Rao, Xinlin Wu
Pages: 1160 - 1172
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...

14. Oasa: An Active Storage Architecture for Object-based Storage System

Shuibing He, Xianbin Xu, Yuanhua Yang
Pages: 1173 - 1183
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...

15. Comparison of Firefly algorithm and Artificial Immune System algorithm for lot streaming in -machine flow shop scheduling

G. Vijay Chakaravarthy, S. Marimuthu, A. Naveen Sait
Pages: 1184 - 1199
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...
