Rough set theory is a relatively new mathematical tool for use in computer applications in circumstances that are characterized by vagueness and uncertainty. Rough set theory uses a table called an information system, and knowledge is defined as classifications of an information system. In this paper, we introduce the concepts of information entropy, rough(More)
Ensemble empirical-mode decomposition (EEMD) is a novel adaptive time-frequency analysis method, which is particularly suitable for extracting useful information from noisy nonlinear or nonstationary data. Unfortunately, since the EEMD is highly compute-intensive, the method does not apply in real-time applications on top of commercial-off-the-shelf(More)
This paper is based upon the observation that, when a bullet is fired, it creates characteristic markings on the cartridge case and projectile. From these markings, over 30 different features can be distinguished, which, in combination, produce a "fingerprint" for a firearm. By analyzing features within such a set of firearm fingerprints, it will be(More)
Osteoblasts, the bone-forming cells, respond to various mechanical forces, such as stretch and fluid shear force in essentially similar ways. The cytoskeleton, as the load-bearing architecture of the cell, is sensitive to altered inertial forces. Disruption of the cytoskeleton will result in alteration of cellular structure and function. However, it is(More)
Increases in scale, complexity, dependency and security for networks have motivated increased automation of activities such as network monitoring. We have employed technology derived from active networking research to develop a series of network monitoring systems, but unlike most previous work, made application needs the priority over infrastructure(More)
