    Fuzzy linear programming with grades of satisfaction in constraints

    , Article Iranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems ; Volume 6, Issue 3 , 2009 , Pages 17-35 ; 17350654 (ISSN) Javadian, N ; Maali, Y ; Mahdavi Amiri, N ; Sharif University of Technology
    We present a new model and a new approach for solving fuzzy linear programming (FLP) problems with various utilities for the satisfaction of the fuzzy constraints. The model, constructed as a multi-objective linear programming problem, provides flexibility for the decision maker (DM), and allows for the assignment of distinct weights to the constraints and the objective function. The desired solution is obtained by solving a crisp problem controlled by a parameter. We establish the validity of the proposed model and study the effect of the control parameter on the solution. We also illustrate the efficiency of the model and present three algorithms for solving the FLP problem, the first of...

    Let D be a noncommutative finite dimensional F-central division algebra, and let N be a normal subgroup of GLn(D) with n≥1. Given a maximal subgroup M of N, it is proved that either M contains a noncyclic free subgroup, or there exists an abelian subgroup A and a finite family {Ki}1 r of fields properly containing F with Ki* ∩ N ⊃ M for all 1 ≤ i ≤ r such that M/A is finite if Char F = 0 and M/A is locally finite if Char F = p > 0, where A ⊆ K1* ×...× Kr*  

    Ag Raman modes and ion-position dependence of the electronic structures of Y Ba2 Cu3 O7 and Y Ba2 Cu4 O8 from first principles

    , Article Physical Review B - Condensed Matter and Materials Physics ; Volume 76, Issue 5 , 2007 ; 10980121 (ISSN) Khosroabadi, H ; Mossalla, B ; Akhavan, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Calculations of the frozen phonon for Ag Raman modes of the superconducting Y Ba2 Cu3 O7 and Y Ba2 Cu4 O8 systems have been carried out using the pseudopotential density functional theory in the local density approximation employing the VASP code. The eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the Ag Raman modes for the two systems have been calculated and compared with other experimental and computational studies. Electronic band structure and total density of states have been calculated for all the bare Ag modes for both systems. By calculating the changes in the bands intersecting the Fermi energy by ionic displacements, the ionic dependence of the electronic band structure in each of the Ag Raman... 

    On maximal and minimal linear matching property

    , Article Algebra and Discrete Mathematics ; Volume 15, Issue 2 , 2013 , Pages 174-178 ; 17263255 (ISSN) Aliabadi, M ; Darafsheh, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    The matching basis in field extentions is in-troduced by S. Eliahou and C. Lecouvey in [2]. In this paper we define the minimal and maximal linear matching property for field extensions and prove that if K is not algebraically closed, then K has minimal linear matching property. In this paper we will prove that algebraic number fields have maximal linear matching property. We also give a shorter proof of a result established in [6] on the fundamental theorem of algebra  

    Extended haessler heuristic algorithm for cutting stock problem: a case study in film industry

    , Article Australian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences ; Volume 3, Issue 4 , 2009 , Pages 3944-3953 ; 19918178 (ISSN) Pazand, K ; Mohammadi, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    The cutting stock problem is an important problem in the field of combinational optimization. In classic versions of this problem, the aim is to find a solution for cutting some equal-width mother rolls into smaller parts with given width so that the amount of trim-loss become as small as possible. There are plenty of works which addressed the classic cutting stock problem. However in real world applications there are usually some constraints which make the problem different form classical version and make it harder to solve. In this paper we investigate a special cutting stock problem in film industry and show that it can not be solved by using previous methods. We propose a new hybrid... 

    Piecewise affine system modeling and control of PWM converters

    , Article Journal of Circuits, Systems and Computers ; Volume 16, Issue 1 , 2007 , Pages 113-128 ; 02181266 (ISSN) Tahami, F ; Molaei, B ; Sharif University of Technology
    The averaged switch modeling approach is a powerful method for representing the behavior of a wide variety of converters through equivalent circuits. The model is not linear and it is common to perform a small signal linearization about an operating point and design a linear controller. Models obtained with such method involve considerable approximation and produce results that are limited for high performance controller designs. In this paper a piecewise affine approximation technique is introduced for modeling PWM converters. This model is much more precise in predicting the dynamic response of averaged nonlinear model comparing the linear model. This paper also presents a piecewise linear...

    In this paper a combination of Kalman filter and feedback linearization methods is used to present a controller-identifier system for synchronizing two different chaotic systems. The drive system has some unknown parameters which are supposed to have linear form within its dynamic equation. An identifier based on Kalman filter approach is designed to estimate the unknown parameters of the drive system, and simultaneously a feedback linearizing controller is used to synchronize the chaotic behavior of the response system with the drive chaotic system. The method proposed in this paper is applied to the Lure' and the Genesio dynamic systems as the drive and response chaotic systems. The...

    Given a simple polygon P with n vertices, the visibility polygon (V P) of a point q (V P(q)), or a segment (formula present) (V P(pq)) inside P can be computed in linear time. We propose a linear time algorithm to extend V P of a viewer (point or segment), by converting some edges of P into mirrors, such that a given non-visible segment (formula present) can also be seen from the viewer. Various definitions for the visibility of a segment, such as weak, strong, or complete visibility are considered. Our algorithm finds every edge such that, when converted to a mirror, makes (formula present) visible to our viewer. We find out exactly which interval of (formula present) becomes visible, by...

    Stabilizing controller design for quasi-resonant converters described by a class of piecewise linear models

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers ; Vol. 61, issue. 1 , 2014 , pp. 312-323 ; ISSN: 15498328 Nejadpak, A ; Tahami, F ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper presents a stabilizing controller design method for quasi resonant (QR) converters described by a class of piecewise linear (PWL) models. The generalized state-space averaging technique (GSSA) is applied for the modeling and analysis of the half-wave zero current switching quasi-resonant (HW-ZCS-QR) buck converter. The nonlinear GSSA model of the converter is reconstructed using a piecewise linearizing technique. Subsequently, the piecewise linear models are combined together, to form a unified model, using a fuzzy modeling approach. The stability of the applied method has been investigated using Lyapunov method. Finally, a linear Hinfty; controller synthesis method is applied to...

    A geometric approach for separating post non-linear mixtures

    , Article European Signal Processing Conference, 3 September 2002 through 6 September 2002 ; Volume 2015-March , September , 2015 ; 22195491 (ISSN) Babaie Zadeh, M ; Jutten, C ; Nayebi, K ; Sharif University of Technology

    A geometric method for separating PNL mixtures, for the case of 2 sources and 2 sensors, has been presented. The main idea is to find compensating nonlinearities to transform the scatter plot of observations to a parallelogram. It then results in a linear mixture which can be separated by any linear source separation algorithm. An indirect result of the paper is another separability proof of PNL mixtures of bounded sources for 2 sources and 2 sensors

A ; Ishak Desa, M ; Behnam, S ; Lessanibahri, S ; IEEE ; Sharif University of Technology
    With the significant role that warehouse plays in connection to suppliers, distributors, and clients, and considering the costliness of storage systems, efforts have focused on the reduction of procedural expenses. Among the most significant expenses, one involves the distance traveled by operators or S/R machinery for the selection of ordered items; the common solution to which has been through the classification of stored items. Previous articles have focused on linear solutions to the abovementioned problem, such as P-Median. This article shall focus on the problems arising from the said solution, and instead a non-linear method proposed. Further, a heuristic algorithm is produced for the... 

    Non-linear metric learning using pairwise similarity and dissimilarity constraints and the geometrical structure of data

    , Article Pattern Recognition ; Volume 43, Issue 8 , August , 2010 , Pages 2982-2992 ; 00313203 (ISSN) Soleymani Baghshah, M ; Bagheri Shouraki, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    The problem of clustering with side information has received much recent attention and metric learning has been considered as a powerful approach to this problem. Until now, various metric learning methods have been proposed for semi-supervised clustering. Although some of the existing methods can use both positive (must-link) and negative (cannot-link) constraints, they are usually limited to learning a linear transformation (i.e., finding a global Mahalanobis metric). In this paper, we propose a framework for learning linear and non-linear transformations efficiently. We use both positive and negative constraints and also the intrinsic topological structure of data. We formulate our metric...

    , Article Communications in Statistics - Theory and Methods ; Volume 46, Issue 11 , 2017 , Pages 5203-5222 ; 03610926 (ISSN) Sayyad, A ; Akhavan Niaki, S. T ; Afshar Najafi, B ; Sharif University of Technology

    In this paper, a non parametric approach is first proposed to monitor simple linear profiles with non normal error terms in Phase I and Phase II. In this approach, two control charts based on a transformation technique and decision on beliefs are designed in order to monitor the intercept and the slope, simultaneously. Then, some simulation experiments are performed in order to evaluate the performance of the proposed control charts in Phase II under both step and drift shifts in terms of out-of-control average run length (ARL1). Besides, the performance of the proposed control charts is compared to the ones of seven other existing schemes in the literature. Simulation results show that the...

    , Article Nonlinear Dynamics ; Volume 56, Issue 1-2 , 2009 , Pages 159-167 ; 0924090X (ISSN) Ganjiani, M ; Ganjiani, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this article, the homotopy analysis method has been applied to solve a coupled nonlinear diffusion-reaction equations. The validity of this method has been successful by applying it for these nonlinear equations. The results obtained by this method have a good agreement with one obtained by other methods. This work illustrates the validity of the homotopy analysis method for the nonlinear differential equations. The basic ideas of this approach can be widely employed to solve other strongly nonlinear problems. © 2008 Springer Science+Business Media B.V  

    No-wait flow shop scheduling using fuzzy multi-objective linear programming

    , Article Journal of the Franklin Institute ; Volume 345, Issue 5 , August , 2008 , Pages 452-467 ; 00160032 (ISSN) Javadi, B ; Saidi Mehrabad, M ; Haji, A ; Mahdavi, I ; Jolai, F ; Mahdavi Amiri, N ; Sharif University of Technology
    This study develops a fuzzy multi-objective linear programming (FMOLP) model for solving the multi-objective no-wait flow shop scheduling problem in a fuzzy environment. The proposed model attempts to simultaneously minimize the weighted mean completion time and the weighted mean earliness. A numerical example demonstrates the feasibility of applying the proposed model to no-wait flow shop scheduling problem. The proposed model yields a compromised solution and the decision maker's overall levels of satisfaction. © 2008 The#Franklin#Institute  

    Fully fuzzified linear programming, solution and duality

    , Article Journal of Intelligent and Fuzzy Systems ; Volume 17, Issue 3 , 2006 , Pages 253-261 ; 10641246 (ISSN) Hashemi, S. M ; Modarres, M ; Nasrabadi, E ; Nasrabadi, M. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, we propose a two-phase approach to find the optimal solutions of a class of fuzzy linear programming problems called fully fuzzified linear programming (FFLP), where all decision parameters and variables are fuzzy numbers. Our approach is constructed on the basis of comparison of mean and standard deviation of fuzzy numbers. In this approach, the first phase maximizes the possibilistic mean value of fuzzy objective function and obtains a set of feasible solutions. The second phase minimizes the standard deviation of the original fuzzy objective function, by considering all basic feasible solutions obtained at the end of the first phase. The advantage of the proposed approach...
