Different methods have been presented to optimize the need to query processing optimization in databases. Reasons of these need increase the amount of data and the queries sent to the Database Management System. This article presents a multi agent system for heterogeneous distributed database by compiling two technologies of query processing optimization in database. This system is compatible of ordering adaptation and it is also flexible in adapting necessary changes as it progresses. In this system a new Algorithm based on modeling of users' long term requirements is used. In this system an Agent gathers data related to manner of users' usage from join in queries. Results of performances show that suggested Algorithm have high adaption ability with comparison to classic Algorithm. © 2010 IEEE.

In the era of globalization and intense competition, the research and development national organizations have been in the strong dilemma for the efficient activities. When part of the national capital would be invested on research and development centers, these centers are responsible of the answer for their performance. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relative efficiency the Iran's research and development performance in the region in both sectors: the production and publishing of knowledge using Network DEA. So the research and development activities from 14 countries region were extracted to assess their relative efficiency. In the production sector, the inputs such as enrollment rates in the sciences and engineering fields, number researchers, costs research and development and the outputs such as number patents, number papers engineering and scientific were used. In sector publishing of knowledge, the inputs such as number patents, number papers engineering and scientific and outputs such as export technology modern and mean reference to the articles were used. The results showed that in the sector of the production of knowledge, four countries and in the sector of the publishing of knowledge, nine countries were inefficient. It was noteworthy that Iran in the sector of the production of knowledge did not have the proper place between the selected countries, but in the sector of the publishing of knowledge it was able to gain maximum efficiency from the DEA models.

Rayko Toshev's doctoral thesis in Industrial Management "Risks and Prospects of Smart Electric Grids Systems measured with Real Options" analyses electricity price risk levels and evaluates smart grid R&D projects and technology opportunities, using real option pricing method. "My work analyses Nord Pool Spot electricity prices for Finland, Sweden Norway and Estonia and computes market risk level using standard financial measures, such as Volatility and Value at Risk", says Toshev. By using the risk metrics he outlines future scenarios for smart grid development and calculates real option values of technology projects. With dynamic pricing, provided from the power market and smart meters, installed by utility companies it is now possible for consumers to sell electricity back to the grid and trade it like a typical commodity. "Such new environment combined with advances in additive manufacturing creates lavish opportunities for technological innovations", he says. Toshev's work also aims to offer a better understanding of the present and future development of smart-grid technologies. He ponders the future scenarios of the market and discusses strategic planning. In his research Toshev used data collected from surveys, questionnaires and action research case studies to examine factors influencing companies' strategies. "Electricity price risk analysis showed decreasing volatility due to the establishment of Nord Pool Market and strong correlation among interconnected regions", he explains. According to Toshev, the process consists of performing historic and Monte Carlo simulations using Nord Pool Spot market price data and calculating the quantile of the distribution of profit and loss over a target horizon. Strategic analysis showed increased demand for flexibility in resource allocation. Toshev's work highlights the practicality of combining financial risk models with corporate strategies for market investors and company management. "Such combined framework helps mitigate the risk of new technology development projects", he says. According to Toshev, it also assists to formulate responses to likely and unlikely scenarios with multi-factor decision parameters. It also provides tools to achieve coherency among diverse strategies between smart grid stakeholders. Explore further: Smart grid development holds promise for U.S. jobs
