In this paper, we reevaluate the use of adaptive compressed caching in order to improve system performance through reduction of accesses to the backing stores. We propose a new and simple adaptability policy that adjusts the compressed cache size on-the-fly, and evaluate a compressed caching system with this policy through an implementation in a widely used… (More)

We apply Artificial Immune Systems(AIS) [4] for credit card fraud detection and we compare it to other methods such as Neural Nets(NN) [8] and Bayesian Nets(BN) [2], Naive Bayes(NB) and Decision Trees(DT) [13]. Exhaustive search and Genetic Algorithm(GA) [7] are used to select optimized parameters sets, which minimizes the fraud cost for a credit card… (More)

Reputation is the opinion of the public toward a person, a group of people, or an organization. Reputation systems are particularly important in e-markets, where they help buyers to decide whether to purchase a product or not. Since a higher reputation means more profit, some users try to deceive such systems to increase their reputation. E-markets should… (More)

In this paper we prove that the congruence classes of A associated to the Burnside semigroup with jAj generators deened by the equation x n = x n+m , for n 4 and m 1, are recognizable. This problem was originally formulated by Brzozowski in 1969 for m = 1 and n 2. De Luca and Varricchio solved the problem for n 5 in 90. A little later, McCammond extended… (More)

Given a bipartite graph, we present an upper bound for its number of maximal bicliques as the product of the numbers of maximal bicliques of two appropriate subgraphs. Such an upper bound is a function of bipartite convexity, a generalization of the convex property for bipartite graphs. We survey known upper bounds present in the literature and construct… (More)

We apply five classification methods, neural nets (NN), Bayesian nets (BN), naive Bayes (NB), artificial immune systems (AIS) and decision trees (DT), to credit card fraud detection. For a fair comparison, we fine adjust the parameters for each method either through exhaustive search, or through genetic algorithm (GA). Furthermore, we compare these… (More)

We prove that any maximal group in the free Burnside semi-group deened by the equation x n = x n+m for any n 1 and any m 1 is a free Burnside group satisfying x m = 1. We show that such group is free over a well described set of generators whose cardinality is the cyclomatic number of a graph associated to the J-class containing the group. For n = 2 and for… (More)

Alignment of sequences is widely used for biological sequence comparisons, and only biological events like mutations, insertions and deletions are considered. Other biological events like inversions are not automatically detected by the usual alignment algorithms, thus some alternative approaches have been tried in order to include inversions or other kind… (More)
