We are going to show you how to make a game easily with using EPUB 3 that has some interactive function based on HTML5 related technology. EPUB 3 is e-book standard form. If you have just an EPUB reader on a game console or an OS, you can play it on any platform. We are going to show you a game demo in this paper. © 2013 IEEE.

We investigate heavy haze episodes (with dense concentrations of atmospheric aerosols) occurring around Beijing in June, when serious air pollution was detected by both satellite and ground measurements. Aerosol retrieval is achieved by radiative transfer simulation in an Earth atmosphere model. We solve the radiative transfer problem in the case of haze episodes by successive order of scattering. We conclude that air pollution around Beijing in June is mainly due to increased emissions of anthropogenic aerosols and that carbonaceous aerosols from agriculture biomass burning in Southeast Asia also contribute to pollution. © 2014 Sonoyo Mukai et al.

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to propose a scheduling method called the "Asynchronous Harmonic Broadcasting Considering Commercial (AHB-CC)" method, to reduce waiting time for continuous media data broadcasting. Design/methodology/approach: The authors analyze and evaluate the performance of the proposed AHB-CC method. Findings: The authors confirm that the proposed method gives shorter average waiting times than the conventional methods. Research limitations/implications: A future direction of this study will involve making a scheduling method where the server concurrently broadcasts data and commercial contents. Also, maximum buffer size needs to be considered. Practical implications: In general broadcasting systems, the server broadcasts the same data repetitively and clients wait until the first portion of the data is broadcast. Although the server can deliver the data to many clients concurrently, clients have to wait until their desired data are broadcast. Originality/value: The AHB-CC method presented in the paper further reduces waiting time by scheduling an effective broadcast that considers the playing time of commercial contents. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

Flat Panel Displays (FPDs) are manufactured using many pieces of different processing equipment arranged sequentially in a line. Although the constant inter-arrival time (i.e., the tact time) of glass substrates in the line should be kept as short as possible, the collision probability between glass substrates increases as tact time decreases. Since the glass substrate is expensive and fragile, collisions should be avoided. In this paper, we derive a closed form formula of the approximate collision probability for a model, in which the processing time on each piece of equipment is assumed to follow Erlang distribution. We also compare some numerical results of the closed form and computer simulation results of the collision probability.

This work intends to develop an efficient algorithm for aerosol retrieval in haze episodes. The increasing emissions of anthropogenic particles provide the serious air pollutants. Although extreme concentrations of aerosols in the atmosphere can prevent aerosol monitoring with surface-level sun/sky photometers, satellites can still be used in such conditions to observe the Earth's atmosphere from space. It is known that the precise simulation of multiple light-scattering processes within the atmosphere is necessary for aerosol remote sensing and needs a long computational time especially in such an optically thick atmosphere as aerosol episode. Accordingly efficient and practical algorithms for radiation simulations are indispensable to retrieve particle characteristics in a case of serious air pollution. © 2014 SPIE.

Vehicle routing and scheduling problems have a wide range of applications and have been intensively studied in the past half century. The condition that enforces each vehicle to start service at each customer in the period specified by the customer is called the time window constraint. This paper reviews recent results on how to handle hard and soft time window constraints, putting emphasis on its different definitions and algorithms. With these diverse time windows, the problem becomes applicable to a wide range of real-world problems. © 2010 Springer-Verlag.

Concentration of particulate matter (PM2.5) is a good indicator of air pollution by anthropogenic aerosols in particular near surface. However instrumentation of PM2.5 is still on going in East Asia even in Japan. This work intends to develop an algorithm for estimating PM2.5 distribution based on the satellite measurements. Combined use of satellite derived columnar aerosol optical thickness (AOT) and vertical distribution of aerosol extinction by ground-based LIDAR measurements is available for estimation of near surface AOT. Thus the derived correlation between AOT and PM2.5 is utilized to retrieve satellite based PM2.5. © 2015 IEEE.

Aerosol impacts on Earth's system are not negligible. The change of concentration of aerosols causes various effects on the climate by directly and indirectly modifying the optical properties and lifetimes of cloud. In addition to radiation budget change, aerosol has a significant potential to change cloud and precipitation. East Asia is the area with high concentration of aerosols in the world. This work intends to investigate distribution of aerosols over East Asia and estimate impacts of aerosol on regional climate change using by satellite data and GCM simulations. Aerosol impacts on climate over East Asia is larger than global mean. The simulated results show that surface cooling and weaken monsoon circulation by aerosol effects. © 2015 IEEE.

The concentration of air pollutants has become severe, and influence of biomass burning aerosols (BBA) generated by agricultural biomass burning (ABB) has been noted upon the severe haze episodes. This work intends to show the retrieval algorithm as far as heavy air pollution caused by ABB is concerned. Aerosol retrieval in the hazy atmosphere is achieved based on radiation simulation method of successive order of scattering (MSOS) for the moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) on AQUA data. Multi-angle observations with the polarization and directionality of the Earth's reflectances (POLDER) on the polarization & anisotropy of reflectances for atmospheric sciences coupled with observations from a lidar (PARASOL) are available for aerosol retrieval from a mixture of cloud and haze. © 2015 IEEE.
