Many business situations such as events, products and services, are often described in a hierarchical structure. When we use case-based reasoning (CBR) techniques to support business decision-making, we require a ...
This paper contains observations, conjectures and open questions concerning two finite sums that involve Fibonacci and Lucas numbers. Certain authors have become aware of the contents of this 9hitherto unpublished) manuscript ...
This paper establishes a continuous-time stochastic asset pricing model in a speculative financial market with fundamentalists and chartists by introducing a noisy fundamental price. By application of stochastic bifurcation ...
This paper introduces a new class of numerical schemes for the pathwise approximation of solutions of stochastic differential equations (SDEs). The proposed family of strong predictor-corrector Euler methods are designed ...
Let tau(n) denote the number of positive divisors of a natural number n > 1 and let sigma( n) denote their sum. Then n is superharmonic if sigma(n) vertical bar n(k)tau(n) for some positive integer k. We deduce numerous ...
We prove that the states secretly chosen from a mixed state set can be perfectly discriminated if and only if they are orthogonal. The sufficient and necessary condition under which nonorthogonal mixed quantum states can ...
We introduce an approach for modelling the structural deterioration of components of bridges for maintenance optimization purposes. The Markov chain model is found in the maintenance and repair problems since the early ...

This paper discusses the importance of stress-induced contributions to the photo-induced birefringence observed in fiber Bragg gratings. Optical tomography measurements are performed in exposed and unexposed fibers to ...
The aim of this work is to develop a simulation approach to the yield curve evolution in the Heath, Jarrow and Morton [Econometrica 60 (1) (1992) 77] framework. The stochastic quantities considered as affecting the forward ...
