THE BRUSH STROKE RENDERING FOR CHINESE COLORED INK PAINTING

Author

Der-Lor Way, Kai-Yun Lin, Yi-Wei Ho, Hsin-Yi Chang, Zen-Chung Shih

Source International Journal of Scientific Knowledge Volume 4 Issue 7 (2014) Pg. 01-08
Abstract

Chinese ink painting is a traditional art over three thousand years old. Differing from Western art, Chinese ink painting emphasizes the meaning of the picture and spirit of the artist rather than portraying realistic space relations and shadows. Simulating Chinese colored ink painting is challenging because ink brush and diffusion are complex. This paper presents the idea of using shape contours and skeleton streamlines as substitutes for trajectories in interactive ink painting…. ….

Abstract

3D modeling or reconstruction is no longer a new topic in the latest graphics research world. However, they remain to be a challenging and tedious work in this new technology era. Many traditional 2D to 3D conversion techniques are time-consuming and with a lot of human intervention required. Most of them used either stereoscopic camera or two input images to achieve the goal. This paper proposes an algorithm to generate interesting 3D anaglyph image from a single 2D image and depth map. … .

FUZZY PROGRAMMING APPROACH FOR PORTFOLIO SELECTION PROBLEMS WITH FUZZY COEFFICIENTS

Author

H. A. Khalifa , Ramadan A. ZeinEldin

Source International Journal of Scientific Knowledge Volume 4 Issue 7 (2014) Pg. 40-47
Abstract

ABSTRACT The portfolio selection problem (PSP) uses mathematical approaches to model stock exchange investments. Its aim is to find an optimal set of assets to invest on, as well as the optimal investments for each asset. In this paper, a portfolio selection problem (FPSP) with fuzzy objective function coefficient (FPSP) a multiple objective problem including uncertainties is investigated. The FPSP is considered by incorporating fuzzy numbers into the coefficients of the objective functions. Through the use of the -level sets of the fuzzy numbers, the FDSP is converted into the corresponding ordinary from -PSP). And an extended Pareto optimality concept

Abstract

Nowadays Services Level Agreement (SLA) became an important aspect between the cloud consumer and cloud provider, the dynamic nature of cloud computing needs to continue monitoring of the services. The restricted choice of appropriate parameters in SLA affects the interacting of end user with cloud services and creates risks of user data. End users are concerned about their data and how it will be stored in cloud and how the data is recovered in the case of failure of disaster. However, none of SLAs consider the end user view while conducting the SLA document. This paper discusses the importance of the parameters which need to be included in SLA when ecommerce companies move to cloud services, … .

Abstract

ABSTRACT Technoparks play a key role in a country’s innovation potential and economic growth, as they are the most effective organizations that can transform the results of university knowledge and researches into new products, technologies and services. However, there are many problems and disproportions in Russia’s National System of Innovation, which result in an underdevelopment of its technology parks. Russia ranks much lower in terms of technology and innovations development than its strategic partner- China.

AN ALGORITH FOR TIME SERIES PREDICTION USING PARTICLE SWARM OPTIMIZATION (PSO)

Author

HAYDER M. ALBEHADILI, A. ABDURRAHMAN AND N. E. ISLAM

Source International Journal of Scientific Knowledge Volume 4 Issue 6 (2014) Pg. 43-50
Abstract

ABSTRACT Although Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is used in variety of applications; it has limitations in the training phase. In this work, a new enhancement for PSO is proposed to overcome such limitations. The proposed PSO optimization consists of two stages. In the first stage, a Gaussian Maximum Likelihood (GML) is added to PSO to update the last 25% of swarm particles, while in the second stage, a Genetic Algorithm is applied whenever there is lethargy or no change in the fitness evaluation for two consecutive iterations

Keywords : PSO, GML,GA, and Time Series Prediction.

Abstract

Three-dimensional (3D) point cloud model presents limited geometric detail. Many existing research works have to apply Nearest-Neighbor (NN) search technique to implicitly find the closest appropriate point to form regular triangle mesh, in order to acquire more geometric detail (e.g. vectors, area and etc.) to define the model. This paper introduces a volume-based clustering technique to group the associated points in different regions. ….

Abstract

Many researchers have addressed the impact of ICT as the cause of global warming, climate change, and sustainability. This has encouraged further research in the area of Green IT as well as many sustainable frameworks of Capability Maturity such as SICT, IT CMF and the ITIL Maturity Model. In line with this drive, there is a need to search for a sustainable framework of Capability Maturity for the lifecycle of IT products. This paper proposes a sustainable framework of Capability Maturity for IT product lifecycles by providing IT users (consumer or organization) with a concrete guideline for practicing Green IT

Abstract

The crop circles, images in the wheat that appear mysteriously during the night, mostly in the British countries, fascinate and intrigue the scientists around the world from hundreds of years. Their origin is unknown, although they declare an evident geometric feature, which brings to mind an ancient symbolism, essential for pagan worship. There are many theories in this regard; including the one that arouses most interest it is that they have a symbolic form, that explicitly cites the concept of energy, i.e. that serves to represent and to tell the origin of all things: the energy that permeates the Earth. . ….
