<i>Attribute-Based Messaging</i> (ABM) enables messages to be addressed using attributes of recipients rather than an explicit list of recipients. Such messaging offers benefits of efficiency, exclusiveness, and intensionality, but faces challenges in access control and confidentiality. In this article we explore an approach to intraenterprise ABM based on(More)
We study the two-dimensional bin packing problem with and without rotations. Here we are given a set of two-dimensional rectangular items I and the goal is to pack these into a minimum number of unit square bins. We consider the orthogonal packing case where the edges of the items must be aligned parallel to the edges of the bin. Our main result is a(More)
Given a capacitated undirected graph G = (V,E) with a set of terminals K ⊂ V , a mimicking network is a smaller graph H = (VH , EH) that exactly preserves all the minimum cuts between the terminals. Specifically, the vertex set of the sparsifier VH contains the set of terminals K and for every bipartition U,K − U of the terminals K, the size of the minimum(More)
We study the strip packing problem, a classical packing problem which generalizes both bin packing and makespan minimization. Here we are given a set of axis-parallel rectangles in the two-dimensional plane and the goal is to pack them in a vertical strip of fixed width such that the height of the obtained packing is minimized. The packing must be(More)
The bin packing problem is a well-studied problem in combinatorial optimization. In the classical bin packing problem, we are given a list of real numbers in (0, 1] and the goal is to place them in a minimum number of bins so that no bin holds numbers summing to more than 1. The problem is extremely important in practice and finds numerous applications in(More)
Fuzzy semigroup theory concentrates on theoretical aspects, but also includes applications in the areas of fuzzy coding theory, fuzzy finite state machines, and fuzzy languages. In this paper, we introduce the concept of an ( , )-fuzzy filter of an ordered semigroup , where , , , , with . Since the concept of ( , )-fuzzy filter is an important and useful(More)

In this paper we study the diffuse reflection diameter and diffuse reflection radius problems for convex-quadrilateralizable polygons. In the usual model of diffuse reflection, a light ray incident at a point on the reflecting surface is reflected from that point in all possible inward directions. A ray reflected from a polygonal edge may graze that(More)
