Knowledge has become the most strategic resource in the new business environment. A case-based reasoning system, which incorporates a novel clustering and retrieval method, has been developed for identifying critical situations in business processes. The proposed method is based on a Cooperative Maximum Likelihood Hebbian Learning model, which can be used… (More)
The thermal and gate-voltage dependencies for the capture and emission times of random telegraph signals have been theoretically analyzed in a Si-SiO 2 interface. A quasi-two-dimensional treatment of the interaction between a neutral near-interface oxide trap and an electron in the subband of the inversion layer has been developed to obtain expressions for… (More)
The direct and assisted-by-trap elastic tunnel current in metal–oxide–semiconductor capacitors with ultrathin gate oxide ͑1.5–3.6 nm͒ has been studied. Bardeen's method has been adapted to obtain the assisted tunnel current, in addition to the direct tunnel current. The dependence of the assisted current on the trap distribution in energy has also been… (More)
This study investigates the attitudes towards and social impacts of Edward Snowden's revelations in Japan through a questionnaire survey and follow-up interviews with Japanese youngsters as part of an international cross-cultural analyses. The survey results showed striking contrasts with ones in other countries reflecting the Japanese socio-cultural and… (More)
A previous theory for the current noise associated with carrier generation and recombination in the space-charge region of p – n junctions is recalculated for the case of a highly asymmetrical distribution of dopant impurities. We propose a model based on the true concentrations of electrons and holes and electric field in the space-charge layer. Carriers… (More)
This study analyses the perceptions about Edward Snowden's revelations in Mexico. A questionnaire survey was developed and applied to students in a Mexican University (Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí). This Study is part of a global research about privacy perceptions by young people in different countries.
This study investigates the attitudes towards and social impacts of Edward Snowden's revelations in Spain through a questionnaire survey answered by students in two Spanish universities (Universitat Rovira i Virgili and Burgos University). It is part of the worldwide cross-cultural analyses about privacy perceptions in young people. The survey results take… (More)
This study investigates the attitudes towards and social impacts of Edward Snowden's revelations in New Zealand through a questionnaire survey and follow-up interviews with New Zealand youngsters as part of the worldwide cross-cultural analyses. The survey results showed striking contrasts with those in other countries reflecting New Zealand's… (More)
