iSPD: An iconic-based modeling simulator for distributed grids
Simulation of large and complex systems, such as computing grids, is a difficult task. Current simulators, despite providing accurate results, are significantly hard to use. They usually demand a strong knowledge of ...
Predicting efficiency in master-slave grid computing systems
(Oxford University Press - OUPOxford, 2013-06)
This work reports a quantitative analysis to predicting the efficiency of distributed computing running in three models of complex networks: Barabási-Albert, Erdõs-Rényi and Watts-Strogatz. A master-slave computing model ...
An efficient codification to solve distribution network reconfiguration for loss reduction problem
Evolutionary algorithms have been used to try to solve distribution network reconfiguration for loss reduction problem with a certain degree of success. But some problems, specially related to a codification that is able ...
Efficient compression and indexing of trajectories
We present a new compressed representation of free trajectories of moving objects. It combines a partial-sums-based structure that retrieves in constant time the position of the object at any instant, with a hierarchical ...

Optimal Design of a Corrugated-Wall Photocatalytic Reactor Using Efficiencies in Series and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Modeling
(American Chemical Society, 2013-04)
The optimization of a corrugated wall photocatalytic reactor for air treatment was addressed using the concept of efficiencies in series. A new concept has been introduced: the inner incidence efficiency, associated with ...
Efficiency and portability: Guidelines to develop websites
The use of the Internet as a means of ensuring greater visibility for products, services and information offered by companies is gaining strength in recent decades. However, it is known that to ensure satisfaction and ...
An oracle approach for interaction neighborhood estimation in random fields
(INST MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS, 2011)
We consider the problem of interaction neighborhood estimation from the partial observation of a finite number of realizations of a random field. We introduce a model selection rule to choose estimators of conditional ...
