—Establishing an appropriate semantic overlay on peer-to-peer (P2P) networks to obtain both semantic ability and scalability is a challenge. Current DHT-based P2P networks are limited in their ability to support a semantic search. This paper proposes the Distributed Suffix Tree (DST) overlay as the intermediate layer between the DHT overlay and the semantic(More)
A semantic link peer-to-peer (P2P) network specifies and manages semantic relationships between peers' data schemas and can be used as the semantic layer of a scalable Knowledge Grid. The proposed approach consists of an automatic semantic link discovery method, a tool for building and maintaining P2P semantic link networks (P2PSLNs), a semantic-based peer(More)
[1] We report new short‐wave infrared (SWIR) column retrievals of atmospheric methane (X CH4) from the Japanese Greenhouse Gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) and compare observed spatial and temporal variations with correla-tive ground‐based measurements from the Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON) and with the global 3‐D GEOS‐Chem chemistry(More)
— Capacitated arc routing problem (CARP) has attracted much attention due to its generality to many real world problems. Memetic algorithm (MA), among other meta-heuristic search methods, has been shown to achieve competitive performances in solving CARP ranging from small to medium size. In this paper we propose a formal probabilistic memetic algorithm for(More)
MOTIVATION Searching genomes for non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) by their secondary structure has become an important goal for bioinformatics. For pseudoknot-free structures, ncRNA search can be effective based on the covariance model and CYK-type dynamic programming. However, the computational difficulty in aligning an RNA sequence to a pseudoknot has prohibited(More)
An important consideration of multiobjective optimization (MOO) is the quantitative metrics used for defining the optimality of different solution sets, which is also the basic principle for the design and evaluation of MOO algorithms. Although a plethora of performance metrics have been proposed in the MOO context, there has been a lack of insights on the(More)
