Improving accuracy and speed of optimum-path forest classifier using combination of disjoint training subsets
The Optimum-Path Forest (OPF) classifier is a recent and promising method for pattern recognition, with a fast training algorithm and good accuracy results. Therefore, the investigation of a combining method for this kind ...
Design and Implementation of a Software Testing Training Course
This paper presents the design and implementation of a software testing training course for software developers with little or no background on software testing. The design of this training course is modular, so that it ...

Energy harvesting from the vibrations of a passing train: Effect of speed variability
This paper builds on a previous study which investigated the amount of energy that could be harvested from the vibration induced by a passing train using a trackside energy harvester. In that study, the optimum parameters ...
Exercise Training and Caloric Restriction Prevent Reduction in Cardiac Ca2+-Handling Protein Profile in Obese Rats
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2010-10-01)
Previous studies show that exercise training and caloric restriction improve cardiac function in obesity. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying this effect on cardiac function remain unknown. Thus, we studied the ...
On the spectrum of rail vibration generated by a passing train
Recent work in rail vibration has investigated methods for estimating track support stiffness from trackside vibration. This vibration, induced by the passage of a train, is mainly due to the load applied by the wheels, ...
On the determination of epsilon during discriminative GMM training
Discriminative training of Gaussian Mixture Models (GMMs) for speech or speaker recognition purposes is usually based on the gradient descent method, in which the iteration step-size, ε, uses to be defined experimentally. ...
