The success of a supply chain is highly dependent on selection of best suppliers. These decisions are an important component of production and logistics management for many firms. Little attention is given in the literature to the simultaneous consideration of cardinal and ordinal data in supplier selection process. This paper proposes a new integrated data envelopment analysis (DEA) model which is able to identify most efficient supplier in presence of both cardinal and ordinal data. Then, utilizing this model, an innovative method for prioritizing suppliers by considering multiple criteria is proposed. As an advantage, our method identifies best supplier by solving only one mixed integer linear programming (MILP). Applicability of proposed method is indicated by using data set includes specifications of 18 suppliers. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Performance Evaluation | Year: 2013

This paper proposes and evaluates a shuffle-exchange as an efficient alternative to the popular mesh topology for Network-on-Chips (NoCs). Although the proposed topology imposes the cost equal to that of the mesh topology, the proposed topology (1) provides lower diameter for NoC, (2) offers better performance under uniform, hotspot, and matrix-transpose traffic patterns and (3) consumes lower energy for packet delivery. To speed up the evaluation process of the proposed topology, an analytical performance model is proposed in the paper to predict the performance of NoCs. The model uses a network of M/G/1 queues to consider channels of the NoC. In this way, the model accurately estimates the average message latency which is a widely used representative for the network performance. Results obtained from the analytical model are in good agreement with those of simulations for a wide range of working conditions (e.g. various network sizes, different message lengths, and different traffic patterns). The proposed analytical model provides a minimum of 400% speed-up in the evaluation process of the proposed topology. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Recently, in the context of dS/CFT correspondence, quasinormal modes have been put forward to address certain features of this conjecture. In particular, it is argued that the dual states of quasinormal modes are in fact the states of CFT3 which are created by operator insertions. For a scalar field in dS4, quasinormal modes which are singular on the past horizon of the south pole and decay exponentially towards the future have been considered in [G.S. Ng and A. Strominger, Classical Quantum Gravity 30, 104002 (2013); D.L. Jafferis et al., arXiv:1305.5523]; these modes lie in two complex highest-weight representations of the dS4 isometry group. In this work, we present a simple group representation analysis of these modes so that the de Sitter invariance is obviously manifest. By making use of the so-called plane wave method, we will show that the quasinormal modes correspond to one class of the unitary irreducible representation of the de Sitter group. This consideration could be generalized straightforwardly for higher-spin fields and higher dimensions; in particular, we will study the quasinormal modes for gauge and spinor fields, and, in the case of a scalar field, the generalization to higher dimensions is also obtained. © 2014 American Physical Society.

In this article, we assume that a cold charged perfect fluid is constructing a spherical relativistic star. Our purpose is the investigation of the dynamical properties of its exterior geometry, through simulating the geodesic motion of a charged test-particle, while moving on the star. © 2013 Chinese Physical Society and the Institute of High Energy Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Modern Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and IOP Publishing Ltd.

In conventional data envelopment analysis (DEA) models, a performance measure whether as an input or output usually has to be known. Nevertheless, in some cases, the type of a performance measure is not clear and some models are introduced to accommodate such flexible measures. In this paper, it is shown that alternative optimal solutions of these models has to be considered to deal with the flexible measures, otherwise incorrect results might occur. Practically, the efficiency scores of a DMU could be equal when the flexible measure is considered either as input or output. These cases are introduced and referred as share cases in this study specifically. It is duplicated that share cases must not be taken into account for classifying inputs and outputs. A new mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model is proposed to overcome the problem of not considering the alternative optimal solutions of classifier models. Finally, the applicability of the proposed model is illustrated by a real data set. © 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
