    Generative model selection using a scalable and size-independent complex network classifier

    , Article Chaos ; Volume 23, Issue 4 , 2013 ; 10541500 (ISSN) Motallebi, S ; Aliakbary, S ; Habibi, J ; Sharif University of Technology
    Real networks exhibit nontrivial topological features, such as heavy-tailed degree distribution, high clusteringsmall-worldness. Researchers have developed several generative models for synthesizing artificial networks that are structurally similar to real networks. An important research problem is to identify the generative model that best fits to a target network. In this paper, we investigate this problem and our goal is to select the model that is able to generate graphs similar to a given network instance. By the means of generating synthetic networks with seven outstanding generative models, we have utilized machine learning methods to develop a decision tree for model selection. Our... 

    Solidification of A356 Al alloy: Experimental study and modeling

    , Article Kovove Materialy ; Volume 49, Issue 4 , 2011 , Pages 253-258 ; 0023432X (ISSN) Shabani, M. O ; Mazahery, A ; Bahmani, A ; Davami, P ; Varahram, N ; Sharif University of Technology
    While it is well recognized that microstructure controls the physical and mechanical properties of a material, the complexity of the microstructure often makes it difficult to be simulated by analytical or numerical techniques. In this paper we present a suitable approach to compute microstructures within a casting using the finite element technique. This technique allows implementing microstructure data from experiments and equations that describe microstructure as function of local solidification parameters. The comparison of this model's predictions with the ones in the literature and also experimental measurements of secondary dendrite arm spacing, average length and diameter of silicon...

    , Article Arabian Journal for Science and Engineering ; Volume 35, Issue 2 A , 2010 , Pages 105-121 ; 13198025 (ISSN) Barani, O. R ; Mostofinejaad, D ; Saadatpour, M. M ; Shekarchi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Using temperature as an accelerator of reactions in short-term tests for the prediction of concrete creep is the main idea of this paper. The application of a time-temperature equivalence relation is examined with reference to creep in concrete under constant moisture conditions. A mathematical model is developed which uses short-term tests to predict long-term creep deformation of concrete under constant moisture conditions, taking into account aging of concrete and the influence of temperature. The thermal activation is assumed to be governed by the Arrhenius principle, and the activation energy of the viscosity of water is found to be applicable in the analysis of the experimental data....

    , Article Polyolefins Journal ; Volume 6, Issue 1 , 2019 , Pages 95-106 ; 23222212 (ISSN) Ebrahimi, H ; Ahmad Ramazani, S. A ; Davachi, S. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Iran Polymer and Petrochemical Institute  2019
    Rheological models for polymer solutions and melts based on the finitely extensible non-linear elastic (FENE) dumbbell theory are reviewed in this study. The FENE-P model that is a well-known Peterlin approximation of the FENE model, indicates noticeable deviation from original FENE predictions and also experimental results, especially in the transient flow. In addition, both FENE and FENE-P models have some shortcomings from the point of view of theory. To overcome these shortcomings, a new approximation of the FENE spring force has been established. It has been used to develop a modified constitutive rheological model for polymeric fluids. In the procedure of modeling, the effect of... 

    An inhomogeneous model universe behaving homogeneously

    , Article General Relativity and Gravitation ; Volume 40, Issue 5 , 2008 , Pages 1047-1069 ; 00017701 (ISSN) Khosravi, Sh ; Kourkchi, E ; Mansouri, R ; Akrami, Y ; Sharif University of Technology
    We present a new model universe based on the junction of FRW to flat Lemaitre-Tolman-Bondi (LTB) solutions of Einstein equations along our past light cone, bringing structures within the FRW models. The model is assumed globally to be homogeneous, i.e. the cosmological principle is valid. Local inhomogeneities within the past light cone are modeled as a flat LTB, whereas those outside the light cone are assumed to be smoothed out and represented by a FRW model. The model is singularity free, always FRW far from the observer along the past light cone, gives way to a different luminosity distance relation as for the CDM/FRW models, a negative deceleration parameter near the observer, and... 

    Green's function approach to quantum criticality in the anisotropic Kondo necklace model

    , Article Physical Review B - Condensed Matter and Materials Physics ; Volume 77, Issue 9 , 2008 ; 10980121 (ISSN) Rezania, H ; Langari, A ; Thalmeier, P ; Sharif University of Technology
    We have studied the quantum phase transition between the antiferromagnetic and spin liquid phases for the two-dimensional anisotropic Kondo necklace model. The bond operator formalism has been implemented to transform the spin Hamiltonian to a bosonic one. We have used the Green's function approach including a hard core repulsion to find the low energy excitation spectrum of the model. The bosonic excitations become gapless at the quantum critical point where the phase transition from the Kondo singlet state to long range antiferromagnetic order takes place. We have studied the effect of both intersite (δ) and local (Δ) anisotropies on the critical point and on the critical exponent of the...

    , Article The Scientific World Journal ; Volume 2014 , 2014 ; ISSN: 1537744X Jafari Talookolaei, R. A ; Abedi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    This work presents a method to find the exact solutions for the free vibration analysis of a delaminated beam based on the Timoshenko type with different boundary conditions. The solutions are obtained by the method of Lagrange multipliers in which the free vibration problem is posed as a constrained variational problem. The Legendre orthogonal polynomials are used as the beam eigenfunctions. Natural frequencies and mode shapes of various Timoshenko beams are presented to demonstrate the efficiency of the methodology

    One of the most promising methods for transporting natural gas and overcoming its low energy density is adsorbed natural gas (ANG) technology. ANG technology is highly dependent on the perfect conception of adsorption isotherms in different operational conditions and on different adsorbents. In this study, the utilization of a novel mathematical model of least squares support vector machine (LSSVM) for accurate prediction of adsorption isotherm has been examined. The considered variables were temperature, pressure and type of adsorbents. A data set containing 670 experimental data points of methane adsorption on 10 different adsorbents in a broad range of temperature and pressure were used... 

    Externally driven one-dimensional Ising model

    , Article Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment ; Volume 2012, Issue 2 , Feb , 2012 ; 17425468 (ISSN) Aghamohammadi, A ; Aghamohammadi, C ; Khorrami, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    A one-dimensional kinetic Ising model at a finite temperature on a semi-infinite lattice with time varying boundary spins is considered. Exact expressions for the expectation values of the spin at each site are obtained, in terms of the time dependent boundary condition and the initial conditions. The solution consists of a transient part which is due to the initial conditions, and a part driven by the boundary. The latter is an evanescent wave when the boundary spin is oscillating harmonically. Low-and high-frequency limits are investigated in greater detail. The total magnetization of the lattice is also obtained. It is seen that for any arbitrary rapidly varying boundary conditions, this... 

    Continuous Abelian Sandpile Model in two dimensional lattice

    , Article International Journal of Modern Physics B ; Volume 25, Issue 32 , 2011 , Pages 4709-4720 ; 02179792 (ISSN) Azimi Tafreshi, N ; Lotfi, E ; Moghimi Araghi, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    We investigate a new version of sandpile model which is very similar to Abelian Sandpile Model (ASM), but the height variables are continuous ones. With the toppling rule we define in our model, we show that the model can be mapped to ASM, so the general properties of the two models are identical. Yet the new model allows us to investigate some problems such as the effect of very small mass on the height probabilities, different boundary conditions

    Lander-Waterman's coverage bound establishes the total number of reads required to cover the whole genome of size G bases. In fact, their bound is a direct consequence of the well-known solution to the coupon collector's problem which proves that for such genome, the total number of bases to be sequenced should be O(G ln G). Although the result leads to a tight bound, it is based on a tacit assumption that the set of reads are first collected through a sequencing process and then are processed through a computation process, i.e., there are two different machines: one for sequencing and one for processing. In this paper, we present a significant improvement compared to Lander-Waterman's...
