In this paper, we introduce the concept of integral ideals in BL-algebras. With respect to concept, we give some related results. In particular, we prove that an ideal is integral ideal if and only if is Boolean and (prime)maximal ideal. Also, we prove that a BL-algebra is an integral BL-algebra if and only if trivial ideal f0g is an integral ideal. Moreover, we study relation between integral ideals and obstinate filters in BL-algebras by using the set of complement elements. Also, we describe relationship between maximal ideals in BL-algebras and locally finite MV -algebras.

Brain network alterations in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) has been the subject of much investigation, but the biological mechanisms underlying these alterations remain poorly understood. Here, we aim to identify the changes in brain networks in patients with AD and mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and provide an accurate algorithm for classification of these patients from healthy control subjects (HC) by using a graph theoretical approach and advanced machine learning methods. Multivariate Granger causality analysis was performed on resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) data of 34 AD, 89 MCI, and 45 HC to calculate various directed graph measures. The graph measures were used as the original feature set for the machine learning algorithm. Filter and wrapper feature selection methods were applied to the original feature set to select an optimal subset of features. An accuracy of 93.3% was achieved for classification of AD, MCI, and HC using the optimal features and the naïve Bayes classifier. We also performed a hub node analysis and found that the number of hubs in HC, MCI, and AD were 12, 10, and 9, respectively, suggesting that patients with AD experience disturbance of critical communication areas in their brain network as AD progresses. The findings of this study provide insight into the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying MCI and AD. The proposed classification method highlights the potential of directed graph measures of rs-fMRI data for identification of the early stage of AD. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.


In this paper, the single-machine scheduling problem with convex multi-resource dependent processing times, subject to meeting job deadlines, is considered. The objective is to minimize the total cost, including the resource allocation costs and the fixed costs. We assume that the actual processing time of each job (task) is a function of the amount of resources allocated. Therefore, the decision variables of the model are: (1) resources allocated to the jobs; (2) total consumed resources; (3) processing times of the jobs; (4) start/completion times of the jobs. We reformulate and solve the problem using a posynomial geometric programming model. In the proposed exact solution method based on the geometric programming, the original problem of any size is reduced to a two-variable unconstrainted optimization problem, which can be easily solved by a simple grid search. © 2017 Sharif University of Technology.

The aim of this paper is to study the chaos, optimal control, and adaptive control of the hyperchaotic Chen system. In this paper, applying the Pontryagin's minimum principle (PMP), the optimal control inputs for the interested model are obtained with respect to the selected measure. A piecewise-spectral homotopy analysis method (PSHAM) is used for solving the hyperchaotic Chen system and the extreme conditions obtained from the PMP. Furthermore, an adaptive control approach and a parameter estimation update law are introduced for the hyperchaotic Chen system with completely unknown parameters. The control results are established using the Krasovskii-LaSalle principle. Finally, numerical simulations are included to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

This paper deals with the flexible job shop scheduling problem with the objective of minimizing the makespan. An efficient heuristic based on a constructive procedure is developed to obtain high-quality schedules very quickly. The algorithm is tested on benchmark instances from the literature in order to evaluate its performance. Computational results show that, despite its simplicity, the proposed heuristic can obtain effective solutions in very short and nearly zero time and is comparable with even metaheuristic algorithms and promising for practical problems. © 2013 Springer-Verlag London.

The applications of sensor networks (SNs) are increasing since they facilitate real-time remote information monitoring and processing. Detection of an event is one of the main tasks of SNs in many applications. Sensors may transmit either raw or processed data to a fusion center (FC), where a final decision is taken. The problems and challenges that exist in detection over SNs and the previously proposed methods to deal with them are reviewed and described in this tutorial. © 1986-2012 IEEE.

Due to the variations in morphological and architectural characteristics of fibers within a skeletal muscle, regions of a muscle may be differently affected by eccentric exercise. Although eccentric exercise may be beneficial for increasing muscle mass and can be beneficial for the treatment of tendinopathies, the non-uniform effect of eccentric exercise results in regional muscle damage and as a consequence, non-uniform changes in muscle activation. This regional muscle weakness can contribute to muscle strength imbalances and may potentially alter the load distribution on joint structures, increasing the risk of injury. In this brief review, the non-uniform effects of eccentric exercise are reviewed and their implications for training and sport are considered. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

This paper proposes a new heuristic method for the general flowshop scheduling problem with the due dates and the sequence dependent setup times (SDSTs) where the objective is to minimize the total weighted tardiness. The approach consists of two phases: in the first phase, a permutation sequence is obtained and this sequence is then improved by a non-permutation local search in the next phase. Using some well-known standard benchmark problems, we examine the performance of the proposed algorithm and our computational results indicate that, despite its simplicity, the proposed heuristic approach provides better solutions than some other alternative methods. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.

The distributed manufacturing takes place in a multi-factory environment including several factories, which may be geographically distributed in different locations, or in a multi-cell environment including several independent manufacturing cells located in the same plant. Each factory/cell is capable of manufacturing a variety of product types. An important issue in dealing with the production in this decentralized manner is the scheduling of manufacturing operations of products (jobs) in the distributed manufacturing system. In this paper, we study the distributed and flexible job-shop scheduling problem (DFJSP) which involves the scheduling of jobs (products) in a distributed manufacturing environment, under the assumption that the shop floor of each factory/cell is configured as a flexible job shop. A fast heuristic algorithm based on a constructive procedure is developed to obtain good quality schedules very quickly. The algorithm is tested on benchmark instances from the literature in order to evaluate its performance. Computational results show that, despite its simplicity, the proposed heuristic is computationally efficient and promising for practical problems. © Springer Science+Business Media New York 2013.

In this paper, the algebraic properties of tense operators on a non-commutative residuated lattice are investigated. First, some examples and basic properties are given. Next, it is proved that the Dedekind–MacNeille completion of a tense non-commutative residuated lattice is again a tense non-commutative residuated lattice, together with suitable operations. In the sequel, the concept of tense filter is introduced and some structural theorems are given. Several characterizations of normal tense filters and maximal tense filters are obtained, as well. Also, some characterizations of tense non-commutative residuated lattices using normal tense filters are given. © 2016 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg
