One of the principal underlying assumptions of current approaches to the analysis of heterogeneous cellular networks (HetNets) with random spatial models is the uniform distribution of users independent of the base station (BS) locations. This assumption is not quite accurate, especially for user-centric capacity-driven small cell deployments where(More)
—We characterize the statistics of nearest-neighbor and contact distance distributions for Thomas cluster process (TCP), which is a special case of Poisson cluster process. In particular, we derive the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the distance to the nearest point of TCP from a reference point for three different cases: (i) reference point is(More)
The purpose of a multimodal biometric system is to construct a robust classifier of genuine and imposter candidates by extracting useful information from several biometric sources which fail to perform well in identification or verification as individual biometric systems. Amongst different levels of information fusion, very few approaches exist in(More)
—The growing complexity of heterogeneous cellular networks (HetNets) has necessitated the need to consider variety of user and base station (BS) configurations for realistic performance evaluation and system design. This is directly reflected in the HetNet simulation models considered by standardization bodies, such as the third generation partnership(More)
This paper proposes a novel fuzzy rule-based penalty function approach for solving single-objective nonlinearly constrained optimization problems. Of all the existing state-of-the-art constraint handling techniques, the conventional method of penalty can be easily implemented because of its simplicity but suffers from the lack of robustness. To mitigate the(More)
In this paper, a multiobjective evolutionary algorithm based on decomposition (MOEA/D) is proposed to solve the unit commitment (UC) problem as a multiobjective optimization problem (MOP) considering minimizing cost and emission as the multiple objectives. Since UC problem is a mixed-integer optimization problem, a hybrid strategy is integrated within the(More)
