Achieving high service availability is a key requirement when deploying service-based applications over ad hoc networks. Without high availability, reliable service execution cannot be achieved. Ad hoc network characteristics like ever-changing topology and limited resources are the main challenges that need to be overcome in order to achieve high(More)
This paper presents a fuzzy basis function approach for adaptive decentralized control of a class of large-scale nonlinear systems with MIMO subsystems. Hybrid adaptive-robust tracking control schemes which are based on a combination of the HT tracking theory, and fuzzy control design are developed such that all the states and signals are bounded and the HT(More)
The problem of finding groups of co-regulated genes is considered one of the major challenges in the analysis of gene expression data. Biclustering may be considered as one of the main techniques to analyze these data. Biclustering is a non-supervised technique outperforms the traditional clustering techniques because it can group both genes and conditions(More)
This paper introduces a new software developed for building performance optimization. MOBO is a generic freeware able to handle single and multi-objective optimization problems with continuous and discrete variables and constraint functions. It can be coupled to many external (simulation) programs. It has a library of different types of algorithms(More)
Recently, a combination between simulation and optimisation has been important for many of HVAC design problems. Long execution time is usually needed for one simulation run; consequently huge time will be required for the optimisation process. The aim of this study is to evaluate how combinations between optimisation algorithms can achieve faster and/or(More)
Mobile Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (Mobile WiMAX) is a wireless Metropolitan Area Network technology based on IEEE 802.16e standard. Mobility, security, Quality of Service (QoS), centralized scheduling and radio resources utilization are offered by connection oriented MAC layer in Mobile WiMAX. In this paper, Spare Capacity Procedure(More)
Securing the inter-vehicle communication is a vital aspect for VANETs. Thus, authentication as a primary security function is required for the participant vehicles and their generated message. Mostly, symmetric authentication protocols which depend on the network infrastructure Road Side Units (RSUs) have low computation and communication overhead. In this(More)
