    A Survey and Systematic Categorization of Parallel K-Means and Fuzzy-C-Means Algorithms

    Ahmed A. M. Jamel1,∗, Bahriye Akay2,†
    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.34, No.5, pp. 259-281, 2019, DOI:10.32604/csse.2019.34.259
    Abstract Parallel processing has turned into one of the emerging fields of machine learning due to providing consistent work by performing several tasks simultaneously, enhancing reliability (the presence of more than one device ensures the workflow even if some devices disrupted), saving processing time and introducing low cost and high-performance computation units. This research study presents a survey of parallel K-means and Fuzzy-c-means clustering algorithms based on their implementations in parallel environments such as Hadoop, MapReduce, Graphical Processing Units, and multi-core systems. Additionally, the enhancement in parallel clustering algorithms is investigated as hybrid approaches in which K-means and Fuzzy-c-means clustering algorithms… More >

    Investigating the Effect of Software Packaging on Modular Structure Stability

    Shouki A. Ebad1,∗, Moataz Ahmed2,†
    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.34, No.5, pp. 283-296, 2019, DOI:10.32604/csse.2019.34.283
    Abstract In object-oriented development, packages form the basic modular structural components of large-scale software systems. Packaging processes aim to group classes together to provide well-identified functions/services to the rest of the system. In this context, it is widely believed that packaging quality has an influence on the software stability so that it should be useful predictors for modular structural stability. In this paper, we investigate the effect of packaging configurations on the modular structure stability of object-oriented systems. Using genetic algorithms, we conducted a series of experiments to find the relation between the packaging quality and modular structure stability. We conducted… More >

    Implementation of Decision Trees as an Alternative for the Support in the Decisionmaking within an Intelligent System in Order to Automatize the Regulation of the Vocs in Non-Industrial Inside Environments

    Liliana Aguilar, Salvador W. Nava-Díaz, Gabriel Chavira
    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.34, No.5, pp. 297-303, 2019, DOI:10.32604/csse.2019.34.297
    Abstract Natural ventilation is a component that provides a positive impact in the quality of air conditions in indoor environments, especially in non-industrial buildings. The maintenance of a continuous entrance of outside air through windows provides to the indoor a feasible and affordable manner to regulate and sustain low standards in theVOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). The technology and the Human Computer-Interaction have contributed to the creation of Intelligent Environments (EI) that provides to humans being a positive and non-intrusive responsiveness of the environment to improve their quality of life in daily activities. The Decision Trees for Decision Making is a mathematical… More >

    Practical Application of Fractional Order Controllers to a Delay Thermal System

    Aymen Rhouma1,∗, Sami Hafsi2,†, Faouzi Bouani3
    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.34, No.5, pp. 305-313, 2019, DOI:10.32604/csse.2019.34.305
    Abstract This paper provides an application of Fractional Model Predictive Control (FMPC) and fractional-order Proportional Integral controller (P Iλ) on a thermal system with time delay.The first controller is based on Grünwald-Letnikov’s method to predict the future dynamic behavior of the system. This method consists in replacing the non-integer derivation operator of the adopted system representation by a discrete approximation. Therefore, this controller is developed on the basis of a fractional order model. However, the second controller is founded on an extended version of Hermite-Biehler theorem to determine the complete set stabilizing P Iλ parameters Experiment results onto a time delay… More >
