This paper studies a single machine scheduling problem with time-dependent learning and setup times. Time-dependent learning means that the actual processing time of a job is a function of the sum of the normal processing times of the jobs already scheduled. The setup time of a job is proportional to the length of the already processed jobs, that is,… (More)
—The one-phase synthesis method using evolutionary or heuristic optimization algorithms can successfully solve the dimensional synthesis problems of path generating four-bar mechanisms discussed in the literature, where the input angles are usually used as design variables and the constraint of the rotational sequence of the input angles is necessary.… (More)
A full-duplex CATV/Radio-over-fiber (ROF) transport system employing a phase modulator as wavelength reuse and remodulation schemes is proposed and demonstrated. Good performances were achieved for downstream and upstream over a 20-km transmission.
A novel transport system, with directly modulating community antenna television (CATV) signal downstream and phase-remodulating radio-over-fiber (ROF) signal upstream, is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. By modulating multi-carriers CATV signal in amplitude domain and ROF signal in phase domain, a single optical wavelength is able to serve these… (More)
