- M. Perez-patricio; Tuxtla Gtz Mexico; Tuxtla Gtz Mexico; Tuxtla Gtz Mexico; M. Arias-estrada; Luis Enrique Erro; Santa Mara Tonatzintla
In this paper, a novel method that uses both area and feature based information as similarity measures for stereo matching is proposed. Area-based information is suited for non-homogeneous regions while feature information helps in homogeneous areas. In order to define a conjugate pair, a fuzzy logic approach that combines the similarity information is used. The proposed method preserves discontinuities while reducing matching errors in homogeneous re-gions. This proposal is suited for real-time processing using ded-icated hardware. We demonstrate and discuss performance using synthetic stereo pairs. Keywords: fuzzy logic; dense stereo vision; real-time processing; dedicated hardware; feature-based 1.
Combining Collaborative Workspaces with Tablet Computing
- Eric Hamilton; Andrew Hurford
Abstract- This paper reports on efforts to blend tablet computers with collaborative workspace technologies. An underlying conjecture is that this blend, evaluated with support from Microsoft Research and the National Science Foundation, may help increase learner engagement substantially. The pedagogical logic is that if an instructor can effect a high volume of precise feedback experiences, engagement levels and learning will climb. The intervention needs to afford the teacher a vivid lens on learner processing, and to furnish learners with means to construct representations naturally but electronically. It would also need to furnish means to mediate the rapid flow of those...

- Fathy H. Awad; Ahmed A. Mansour; Essam E. Abou Elzahab
Abstract: This paper studies improving the power factor by using Thyristor Controlled Reactor (TCR) shunted with a fixed capacitor to get a controlled source of reactive power. This technique has three topologies of TCR connection like Star, Delta, and Hybrid. The fuzzy controller is used to control the thyristor firing angle according to the reactive power measured at the PCC to improve the power factor. Also, the paper discusses the using of the hybrid technique to solve the problem of Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) as one side effect of the using the TCR system.

Reversible logic is one of the promising research areas in low power applications such as quantum computing, optical information processing and low power CMOS design. In this paper we present a reversible carry look ahead adder and an array multiplier. The circuits are designed such that they result in less garbage outputs, constant inputs, and less gate count compared to previous existing designs. We also gain better improvements in terms of power and area when compared to conventional adders and multipliers. The implemented designs are simulated using NC launch and synthesized by RTL compiler.

Side-Channel Leakage of Masked CMOS Gates
- Stefan Mangard; Berndt M. Gammel; Infineon Technolgies Ag
Abstract. There are many articles and patents on the masking of logic gates. However, the existing publications assume that a masked logic gate switches its output no more than once per clock cycle. Unfortunately, this assumption usually does not hold true in practice. In this article, we show that glitches occurring in circuits of masked gates make these circuits susceptible to classical first-order DPA attacks. Be-sides a thorough theoretical analysis of the DPA-resistance of masked gates in the presence of glitches, we also provide simulation results that confirm the theoretical elaborations. Glitches occur in every CMOS cir-cuit. Consequently, the currently...
Binary lambda calculus and combinatory logic
- John Tromp
In the first part, we introduce binary representations of both lambda calculus and combinatory logic terms, and demonstrate their simplicity by providing very compact parser-interpreters for these binary languages. Along the way we also present new results on list representations, bracket abstraction, and fixpoint combinators. In the second part we review Al-gorithmic Information Theory, for which these interpreters provide a con-venient vehicle. We demonstrate this with several concrete upper bounds on program-size complexity. 1

Fuzzy based Load and Energy Aware Multipath Routing for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
- M. Ali; B. G. Stewart; A. Shahrabi; A. Vallavaraj
Routing is a challenging task in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) due to their dynamic topology and lack of central administration. As a consequence of un-predictable topology changes of such networks, routing protocols employed need to accurately capture the delay, load, available bandwidth and residual node energy at various locations of the network for effective energy and load balancing. This paper presents a fuzzy logic based scheme that ensures delay, load and energy aware routing to avoid congestion and minimise end-to-end delay in MANETs. In the proposed approach, forwarding delay, average load, available bandwidth and residual battery energy at a...

MANETs are much more susceptible to various attacks because of openness in network topology and being away of a centralized administration in management. As an outcome of that, more malicious nodes are often comes in and goes out without being detected from the network topology. Hence, MANET needs very specialized security methods to isolate the false entrance. As well as there is no single solution that fitting in different types of the network where the nodes can be behave like any apparatuses. The networks works well if the nodes are trusty and act rightly cooperatively. In order to improve the...
1 Painted musical representation and mnemonics
- Juliet Kac; Rod Paton
Background in art history and theory. Specific interest – the relationship between painting and music. Della Francesca (c1415-1487) used musical ratios as a compositional device in his paintings (Bouleau, 1963). Colour in Poussin’s (1594?-1665) paintings convey moods analogous to the modes representing the keys in early music, and Delacroix’s (1798-1863) use of colour is associated with mood and a ‘musical quality ’ (Lockspeiser, 1973). An exhibition of paintings in Madrid (2003) at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza gallery titled ‘Musical Analogies, Kandinsky and his Contemporaries’, testifies both to the diversity of interpretations of artists working within the parameters of this subject within...
