A test problem for visual investigation of high-dimensional multi-objective search
(IEEE Press, 2014-09-22)
An inherent problem in multiobjective optimization is that the visual observation of solution vectors with four or more objectives is infeasible, which brings major difficulties for algorithmic design, examination, and ...
Constraints and Conditions: Drivers for Design Processes
Consistency based estimation of fuzzy linguistic preferences. The case of reciprocal intuitionistic fuzzy preference relations
The decision-making assumption of all experts being able to express their preferences on all available alternatives of a decision-making problem might be considered unrealistic. This is specially true when the number of ...
Multiplicative Consistency for Interval Valued Reciprocal Preference Relations
The multiplicative consistency (MC) property of interval additive reciprocal preference relations (IARPRs) is explored, and then the consistency index is quantified by the multiplicative consistency estimated IARPR. The ...
A 6(4) optimized embedded Runge–Kutta–Nyström pair for the numerical solution of periodic problems
In this paper an optimization of the non-FSAL embedded RKN 6(4) pair with six stages of Moawwad El-Mikkawy, El-Desouky Rahmo is presented. The new method is derived after applying phase-fitting and amplification-fitting ...
Explicit Almost P-Stable Runge-Kutta-Nyström Methods for the Numerical Solution of the Two-Body Problem
In this paper, three families of explicit Runge–Kutta–Nyström methods with three stages and third algebraic order are presented. Each family consists of one method with constant coefficients and one corresponding optimized ...
An Elaboration of Critical Success Factors for Rural ICT Project Sustainability in Developing Countries - Exploring the Dwesa Case
(Taylor & Francis, 2014-09-12)
Rural development is significantly enhanced and supported by Information and Communication Technology (ICT), the use of which is highlighted by the emerging importance of information and knowledge as key strategic resources ...
Critical Themes of Process Assessment in Rural ICT4D Projects: An Analysis of Assessment Approaches
Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are often perceived as adequate support tools for development activities. However, their successful employment as development enablers requires strategic implementation. ...
Supporting a Humanizing Pedagogy in the Supervision Relationship and Process: A Reflection in a Developing Country
(Informing Science Institute, 2014)
Research supervision should be treated with as much significance as teaching at undergraduate levels. Essentially, research supervisors are still dealing with students, about whom they have to be sensitive and aware, and ...
A new security and privacy framework for RFID in cloud computing
RFID is a leading technology that has been rapidly deployed in several daily life applications that require strong security and privacy mechanisms. However, RFID systems commonly have limited computational capacity and ...
