    Advances in heuristic signal processing and applications

    , Book ; Chatterjee, Amitava ; Nobahari, Hadi ; Siarry, Patrick
    Springer  2013
    There have been significant developments in the design and application of algorithms for both one-dimensional signal processing and multidimensional signal processing, namely image and video processing, with the recent focus changing from a step-by-step procedure of designing the algorithm first and following up with in-depth analysis and performance improvement to instead applying heuristic-based methods to solve signal-processing problems. In this book the contributing authors demonstrate both general-purpose algorithms and those aimed at solving specialized application problems, with a special emphasis on heuristic iterative optimization methods employing modern evolutionary and swarm...

    Analysis and data-based reconstruction of complex nonlinear dynamical systems : using the methods of stochastic processes

    , Book Rahimi Tabar, M. Reza
    Springer International Publishing  2019
    This book focuses on a central question in the field of complex systems: Given a fluctuating (in time or space), uni- or multi-variant sequentially measured set of experimental data (even noisy data), how should one analyse non-parametrically the data, assess underlying trends, uncover characteristics of the fluctuations (including diffusion and jump contributions), and construct a stochastic evolution equation?
    Here, the term "non-parametrically" exemplifies that all the functions and parameters of the constructed stochastic evolution equation can be determined directly from the measured data.
    The book provides an overview of methods that have been developed for the analysis of...

    Designing and Optimization Control Algorithm of Internal Combustion Four-stroke one cylinder Engine Fuel Management System

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Jorjorzadeh Shooshtari, Mehdi (Author) ; Khayyat, Ali Akbar (Supervisor) ; Zabihollah, Abolghasem (Supervisor)
    Most motorcycles in developing countries use carburetor systems as the fuel delivery method especially for models with the cubic capacity of less than 150 cc. However, a small gasoline fuelled engines operating using carburetor system suffer from low operating efficiency, waste of fuel and produce a higher level of hazardous emissions to the environment. A retrofit fuel injection system (FIS) is a system that is developed to entirely replace the conventional carburetor system to improve its fuel economy and exhaust emissions providing a low-cost alternative in an effort to reduce fuel costs and air pollution. In this study, an electronic control unit (ECU) is designed for a fuel injection... 

    Hardware Implementation of Fuzzy Logic for Turbojet Engine Fuel Control System

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Yousefpour, Hossein (Author) ; Montazeri, Morteza (Supervisor) ; Kazemzadeh Hannani, Siamak (Co-Advisor)
    Gas turbine engine control is a demanding task that requires the regulation of the thrust as well as the satisfaction of the limitations such as engine aerodynamic instability, over temperature and over speed. Fuzzy logic is an attractive technique for the control of poor understood unmodeled, or complex systems especially where the experience of human operators is available to provide qualitative rules. In such cases, it has been found that control decisions can be made on the basis of linguistic measures or fuzzy algorithms. The controller that is designed on the basis of this theory is called fuzzy logic controller. The main objective of this thesis is hardware implementation of fuzzy...

    Assessment of the probability of collapse or exceeding other limit states is one of the major goals of Performance-Based Earthquake Engineering. Moreover, other beneficial materials such as estimation of loss of money and downtime, which make it convenient for decision makers to judge the condition of a structure and take wise steps about it, can be drawn from the results of such an assessment.Current work investigates the probability of collapse and also immediate occupancy limit states at three discrete hazard levels of 50%, 10% and 2% in 50 years and also by utilizing mean annual frequency approach for three archetypes of steel special moment-resisting frames of 4, 8 and 12 stories.Ten... 

    Traffic Engineering Design in Software-Defined Networks with Big Flow Applications

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Vafae Zanjani, Ali (Author) ; Akbari, Behzad (Supervisor)
    "Programmable networks" are to facilitate and evolve the computer networks. Specifically, Network Defined Software (SDN) is an advanced and innovative solution in the new computer network in which the hardwares are completely independent of the control and decision regarding data transfer. Based on this logic, network management becomes much simpler and enables innovation and new solutions for different parts of the network. In SDN, the program or network intelligence is logically present in software-based controllers (on the control panel) and can be changed and programmed, and network devices are converted into network packet sending hardware (on the data page) through an interface, Such... 

    Traffic Engineering In Cloud Infrastructure By Software Defined Networks

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Karami, Saeedeh (Author) ; Akbari, Behzad (Supervisor)
    In the recent years, cloud data center issues have been the center of attention. Also for them topologies with multi paths between end hosts are offered. For use of multi path traffic engineering is essential. Researches show congestion occurred in the cloud data center networks, because the mean of link utilization is down. This means, some of links are congested while there are some other with much available bandwidth. Currently, the most common method is Equal Cost Multipath (ECMP) algorithm for routing flows in the data center network. ECMP decides on routing without any attention to network congestion condition. There, may be two big flows placed in the one path and it causes creation...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mashinchi Ghabel, Parisa (Author) ; Manzuri Shalmani, Mohammad Taghi (Supervisor) ; Ajorloo, Hossein (Co-Advisor)
    The 60 GHz high speed technology, is the interesting category in network world nowadays. In this study, we consider one of the 60 GHz technologies as it is called WiGig. WiGig works under IEEE802.11ad standard, one of the WLAN standards that works at 60 GHz frequency band. We have surveyed the total MAC and physical layer of this standard to find the way to enhance the MAC protocol. This MAC protocol is applying the CSMA/CA and TDMA methods to access the channel. We have applied the CSMA/CA in our thesis that is a contention based access method. We found that with this method our network is not fair. Since there are not any studies about the value of Fairness in this standard, we...

NewsSe considers news as a series of events in order to cover all aspects of news. NewsSe uses Domain Ontology and Event Ontology to extract the concepts and relations existed in news. NewsSe consists of 4 different modules. NewsCr is a crawler which uses a new methodology for... 

    Designing a General IT Security System Using RAISE Formalism

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Oskooeepour, Alireza (Author) ; Solaiman Fallah, Mehran (Supervisor)
    Security has become more important in IT systems. Thus, to protect such systems from related potential threats and harms, robust and dependable security solutions should be devised. In designing security systems, a number of other issues such as assurance and verifiability are also of concern. Due to their mathematical nature, formal methods are very suitable for the above purposes. Using these methods, one can accurately define a system, its boundaries, and the requirements from design. It also makes it possible to verify that the design meets the requirements. In this dissertation, we propose a general IT security system using RAISE specification method. To do so, the specification...
