Learning latent semantic relations from clickthrough data for query suggestion
(2008)For a given query raised by a specific user, the Query Suggestion technique aims to recommend relevant queries which potentially suit the information needs of that user. Due to the complexity of the Web structure and the ... 
NHDC and PHDC: Nonpropagating and propagating heat diffusion classifiers
(12th International Conference on Neural Information Processing, 2005)Abstract  By imitating the way that heat flows in a medium with a geometric structure, we propose two novel classification algorithms, Nonpropagating Heat Diffusion Classifier (NHDC) and Propagating Heat Diffusion ... 
Nonlinear correction to the Euler buckling formula for compressed cylinders with guidedguided end conditions
(Springer, 201102)Euler's celebrated buckling formula gives the critical load N for the buckling of a slender cylindrical column with radius B and length L as N/([pi]^3 B^2 )=(E/4)(B/L)^2, where E is Young's modulus. Its derivation relies ... 
On the application of robust numerical methods to a complete flow wavecurrent model. Boundary and Interior Layers ONERA
(2004)We aim to show how parameterrobust numerical method may be employed to solve equations arising in the modelling of wavecurrent interactions.We present two such models: a complete flow model for wavecurrent interaction ... 
Partition functions and chiral algebras.
(American Mathematical Society, 200705)We discuss recent work of the authors concerning correlation functions and partition functions for free bosons/fermions and the bc or ghost system. We compare and contrast the nature of the 1point functions at genus 1, ... 
A pointdistribution index and its application to sensorgrouping in wireless sensor networks
(ACM, 2006)We propose [i], a novel index for evaluation of pointdistribution. [i] is the minimum distance etween each pair of points normalized by the average distance between each pair of points. We find that a set of points that ... 
Predictive random graph ranking on the web
(2006)The incomplete information about the Web structure causes inaccurate results of various ranking algorithms. In this paper, we propose a solution to this problem by formulating a new framework called, Predictive Random Graph ... 
Predictive ranking: a novel page ranking approach by estimating the web structure
(2005)PageRank (PR) is one of the most popular ways to rank web pages. However, as the Web continues to grow in volume, it is becoming more and more difficult to crawl all the available pages. As a result, the page ranks computed ... 
Rayleigh waves in anisotropic crystals rotating about the normal to a symmetry plane
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2004)The propagation of surface acoustic waves in a rotating anisotropic crystal is studied. The crystal is monoclinic and cut along a plane containing the normal to the symmetry plane; this normal is also the axis of rotation. ... 
Seminonnegative matrix factorization with global statistical consistency for collaborative filtering
(2009)[no abstract available] 
Sorec: social recommendation using probabilistic matrix factorization
(ACM, 2008)Data sparsity, scalability and prediction quality have been recognized as the three most crucial challenges that every collaborative filtering algorithm or recommender system confronts. Many existing approaches to recommender ... 
Strain rate effects on the failure characteristics of excised human skin
(The 9th International Conference on the Mechanics of Time Dependent Materials, 2014)Skin is a complex, multilayered material which exhibits nonlinear, anisotropic and viscoelastic behaviour. Its structure is complex and can be broadly divided into three main layers: the epidermis, the dermis and ...
