This paper studies the dynamics in two-settlement electricity markets. In these markets, energy producers sign strategic forward contracts in the forward market, and engage in spatial oligopolistic competition in the spot market. We develop an agent-based model for simulating the outcomes of such markets. Numerical simulations imply that the access to the(More)
─To support m-commerce applications, a service discovery mechanism where services can announce their presence and mobile users can locate these services is needed. Service discovery in dynamic mobile environments poses many challenges such as service providers may create and delete services or servers anytime; mobile services may be deployed in various(More)
Design improvement is critical for achieving a low-cost and high energy-efficient building with low carbon emissions. Thus, designers need to consider many factors (such as energy, economic and environmental performance) in the early design stage. This paper presents a multi-objective analysis for better building design and compares the EDH-based design(More)
The wide application of Global Positioning System (GPS) carrier-phase (CP) time transfer is limited by the problem of boundary discontinuity (BD). The discontinuity has two categories. One is "day boundary discontinuity," which has been studied extensively and can be solved by multiple methods [1-8]. The other category of discontinuity, called "anomaly(More)
