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 ... 
Waves and vibrations in a solid of second grade
(World Scientific, 2006)We study the viscoelastic second grade solid, for which the constitutive equation consists in the sum of a purely elastic part and a viscoelastic part; this latter part is specified by two microstructural coefficients ... 
Wireless communicative stent for followup of abdominal aortic aneurysm,
(IEEE, 2006)An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a dilatation of the aorta at the abdominal level, which rupture is a life threatening complication. Recent treatment of AAA consists in endovascular treatment with covered stent grafts. ...
