Stochastic learning automata and genetic algorithms (GAs) have previously been shown to have valuable global optimization properties. Learning automata have, however, been criticized for having a relatively slow rate of convergence. In this paper, these two techniques are combined to provide an increase in the rate of convergence for the learning automata(More)
In Poland a basic opinion of the mental health care system is that it considers that mental disorders are illnesses and that an ill person is weaker (worse) and less useful in the social distribution of roles and tasks.

A feasibility analysis of capitation reimbursement for a primarily Medicaid population in The Johns Hopkins Pediatric Primary Care Clinic was conducted. The utilization of all inpatient and outpatient care of 2,261 patients was monitored for a 6-month period. As a result, per capita rates based on charges were determined for each group of patients according(More)
Bulk heterojunction (BHJ) and dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) have seen increased popularity over recent years and each technology has experienced tremendous improvements in power conversion efficiencies (PCEs), reaching 8 and 12%, respectively. The two technologies have been on independent improvement pathways, and this work establishes a link between(More)
