This paper presents a data adaptive pre-filtering method to enhance the motor imagery (MI) classification for brain computer interface (BCI) implementation electroencephalography (EEG). The filtering is implemented using multivariate empirical mode decomposition (MEMD). The MEMD decomposes multivariate EEG signal into a finite set of time varying basis functions called intrinsic mode functions (IMFs). Several IMFs are suppressed to improve the intelligibility of the EEG for better classification. The features from pre-filtered EEG are extracted by using common spatial pattern (CSP) which is a spatial filtering approach. The two class MI classification is performed by support vector machine (SVM). The proposed method is evaluated by BCI competition III of dataset IVa. Its performance is higher compared to that of the recently developed algorithm. © 2016 IEEE.

Cluster analysis techniques of gene expression microarray data is of increasing interest in the field of current bioinformatics. One of the reasons for this is the need for molecular-based refinement of broadly defined biological classes, with implications in cancer diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. And many algorithms have been developed for this problem; however microarray data frequently include outliers, and how to treat these outlier’s effects in the subsequent analysis-clustering. In this paper, we present the large-scale analysis of seven different agglomerative hierarchical clustering methods and five proximity measures for the analysis of 33 cancer gene expression datasets. As a case study, we used two experimental datasets: Affymetrix and cDNA, and different percent outliers were artificially added to these datasets. We found that ward method gives the highest corrected Rand index value with respect to the spearman proximity measures when datasets contain with and without outliers. © 2016 Bentham Science Publishers.

Polarization force (acting on a dust grain) and its modification by polarity of dust, non-isothermal (viz. non-thermal and trapped) ions, adiabaticity of electrons and ions, etc. have been investigated theoretically. It has been found that the polarization force is significantly modified by these effects, i.e. the magnitude of the polarization force is significantly decreased by the presence of non-thermal ions and by the adiabaticity of electrons and ions. On the other hand, it is significantly increased by the presence of trapped ions. It has been also shown that the magnitude of the polarization force is increased (decreased) by electric potential in the case of positively (negatively) charged dust. The relevance of our investigation to some space and astrophysical plasma situations is discussed. Copyright © 2013 Cambridge University Press.

Energy conservation in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has always been the most crucial issue, for the sensor nodes are all powered by limited capacity battery sources which are difficult, if not impossible, to replace or recharge due to the inherent nature and types of applications WSN is used for. Therefore, energy efficient design of WSN has drawn considerable attention from many researchers resulting in quite a good number of approaches for saving the precious and limited energy of the sensor nodes. However, designing energy efficient routing protocol for WSN is the area that has received the most of the attention giving rise to many Energy Efficient Routing (EER) protocols. In this paper, a comprehensive list of these EER protocols have been studied having classified them into proper categories. The relative advantages and disadvantages of the protocols are also discussed while the protocols are evaluated based on certain performance metrics at the end of the paper. © 2013 GIRI.

The effects of nonextensivity and nonthermality of ions of two distinct temperatures on dustacoustic Gardner solitons (DAGSs) in an unmagnetized dusty plasma system are investigated theoretically. The constituents of the dusty plasma under consideration are negatively charged mobile dust fluid, Boltzmann-distributed electrons, and ions of two distinct temperatures following nonextensive (q) and nonthermal distributions, respectively. The Korteweg-de Vries (KdV), modified KdV, and Gardner equations are derived by using the reductive perturbation technique, and thereby their characteristic features are compared. It is observed that both the nonextensive and nonthermal ions significantly modify the basic properties and polarities of dust-acoustic solitary waves. The present investigation may be of relevance to space and laboratory dusty plasma systems. © 2014, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

In this paper, a new novel energy balance method based on the harmonic balance method is proposed to obtain higher-order approximations of strongly nonlinear problems arising in engineering. Especially, second-order approximation is considered in this paper. Results found in this paper are compared with the exact result and other existing results. The results show that the proposed method gives better result for both small and large amplitudes of oscillation than other existing results. The method is illustrated by examples. It has been shown that the proposed method is very effective, convenient and quite accurate to nonlinear engineering problems. © 2015 The Authors.

Finger prints are considered as the best tool of identification. Gender identification from fingerprints is an important step in forensic anthropology in order to identify the gender of a criminal and minimize the list of suspect search. Fingerprint identification and classification has been extensively researched in the literature however very few researchers have studied the fingerprint gender classification problem. In the present work, we proposed an easy and efficient technique to classify gender of a person using systematic fingerprint ridge counting to a valley area. The study was carried out on the age group of 18 to 40 years where the students, workers, housewives etc are taken as the subjects. An optimal threshold for each transform is chosen for better results. It is found that the proposed system produces accurate decision of 85% of male and 74% of female. The overall performance of the system is found to be satisfactory and useful to forensic anthropology. © 2015 IEEE.

The fundamental properties of cylindrical and spherical dust-acoustic (DA) waves in dusty plasmas with consisting of negatively charged mobile dust, two populations of nonthermal ions with distinct temperatures, and Boltzmann-distributed electrons, are rigorously investigated both theoretically and analytically. The modified Gardner (mG) equation is derived by using the reductive perturbation method. The basic features of nonplanar DA modified Gardner solitons (mGSs) are analyzed by using numerical solutions of the mG equation. The nature and the basic characteristics of the mGSs are found to be significantly modified by the existence of two-temperature nonthermal ions. The implications of our investigations in understanding the nonlinear electrostatic perturbations observed in some astrophysical and space plasmas, where distinct-temperature nonthermal ions can significantly modify the wave dynamics, are briefly discussed in this current analysis. © 2014 The Korean Physical Society.

Since 1887 wind has been a reliable source of power in order to address the global challenges of clean energy, climate change and sustainable development. Availability of wind has been always a matter of concern. And economically viable windmills depend most strongly on the quality of wind resource. This wind resource is available from nature. It can be achieved by many other ways. Moving bodies always get enough wind. Vehicles especially trains face much wind flow, which is more than enough to run small wind turbines. Using train compatible wind turbine likely small size, electricity can be generated nicely. We estimated that annually 27299.69378 KW power generations can be available from a particular train which is very much potential in modern energy-crisis era. We showed that, for train, using the electricity to the sub grid, the vehicles can be facilitated more efficiently. © 2014 IEEE.

The Cd 1xCo xS (x = 0.00, 0.10, 0.20 and 0.40) thin films were deposited onto the glass substrate at a temperature of 523 K using a low cost spray pyrolysis technique. The SEM images show that the grain size and the roughness of the films were increased with increasing Co doping concentration. The as-deposited films were amorphous in nature but the annealed samples had a crystalline wurtzite hexagonal structure and the estimated average grain size lay in the range of 7 to 49 nm. The optical band gap of the films was decreased from 2.54 to 2.40 eV. The conductivity and activation energy of the films were decreased with increasing Co content but all the films showed semiconducting behaviour in the measured temperature range. © 2012 IOP Publishing Ltd.
