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.

One of the limitations in the process of hydrate formation to benefit its positive application is high pressure and low temperature conditions. Design and construction of a unit with the aforementioned conditions is therefore expensive and unsafe. Thus, an investigation of methods for moderation of hydrate formation conditions seems to be very important. As mentioned in literature, utilization of ammonium salts in water normally promotes the hydrate formation conditions. One of these salts is tetra-n-butylammonium fluoride (TBAF). In this research, the dissociation data of semiclathrate hydrates for the systems of methane + TBAF + water, carbon dioxide + TBAF + water, and nitrogen + TBAF + water have been measured and reported. Experimental measurements were performed at three concentrations of TBAF, that is, (0.02, 0.05, and 0.15) mass fraction. A comparison of hydrate dissociation data in the presence or absence of TBAF shows the promotion effect of TBAF on methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen hydrate formation. By increasing the concentration of TBAF from (0.02 to 0.15) mass fraction, its promotion effect increases, and the p-T curves of the double gas + TBAF semiclathrate systems shift to the low pressure and high temperature regions (moderate conditions). Results of the experiments show that, contrary to clathrate hydrates, a small increase in temperature of semiclathrate hydrates, studied herein, leads to a noticeable increase in dissociation pressure. © 2013 American Chemical Society.

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

In this paper, we introduce the notion of a nodal filter in residuated lattices. We give several characterizations of these filters and also some relationships between these filters and other types of filters are obtained, as well. Finally, we prove that the class of all nodal filters of a residuated lattice forms a Heyting algebra. © 2016 - IOS Press and the authors. All rights reserved.
