Shape analysis using fractal dimension: A curvature based approach

André R. Backes, João B. Florindo, Odemir M. Bruno
2012 Chaos  
The present work shows a novel fractal dimension method for shape analysis.  ...  Through the application of a multiscale transform to the dimension calculus, it is obtained a set of numbers (descriptors) capable of describing with a high precision the shape in analysis.  ...  In his study about fractal geometry, Mandelbrot 3 showed more formally the concept of fractal dimension and the possibility of its use as a measure to describe fractal objects.  ...

Object-oriented concept analysis for software modularisation

H.H. Kim, D.-H. Bae
2008 IET Software  
An automatic technique for software modularisation using object-oriented concept analysis (OOCA) is proposed.  ...  The proposed technique is strongly inspired by the success of reverse engineering techniques based on formal concept analysis (FCA).  ...  Theoretically, the formulations of object-and property-oriented concepts form a pair of lower and upper approximation operators in rough set theory.  ...

Investigating a multi-paradigm system for the management of archaeological data: Corpus Lapidum Burgundiae

Eric Leclercq, Marinette Savonnet, Andres Troya-Galvis, Stephane Buttner
2013 2013 Digital Heritage International Congress (DigitalHeritage)  
Our contribution is a multi-paradigm data management system approach that relies on master data and ontology-based annotations.  ...  We develop a formal model for ontological-based annotations, we show that this model conforms to a semi-ring algebraic structure and we define a subset of algebraic operator to query annotations.  ...  XML and associated Semantic Web technologies provide extensibility but does not scale well for scientific data. Only a multi-paradigm approach can satisfy all the properties required by SIS.  ...

Perspectives on Organizations in Multi-agent Systems [chapter]

Les Gasser
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Beyond recent work in human social and organization theory, some newer research on abstract organizations has been attempting to unify concepts in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computing  ...  Despite this, the idea of organizations has been a peripheral theme in MAS/DAI research---primarily a specific coordination technique---not really one of the central intellectual issues of the field.  ...  Acknowledgements My recent thinking on the issues discussed in this paper has benefited greatly from conversations with Jean-Pierre Briot and Vic Lesser, and from the participants in my seminar on Self-Organizing  ...
