Cscan: A Correlation-based Scheduling Algorithm for Wireless Sensor Networks

Qingquan Zhang, Yu Gu, Tian He, Gerald E. Sobelman
2008 2008 IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control  
Our system architecture integrates an empirical data prediction model with a stochastic scheduler to adjust a sensor node's operational mode.  ...  Dynamic scheduling management in wireless sensor networks is one of the most challenging problems in long lifetime monitoring applications.  ...  Depending on the duration of the system and the data accuracy requirements of an application, the empirical models can be constructed in different ways.  ...

Residential Water Demand under Alternative Rate Structures: Simulation Approach

David E. Rosenberg
2010 Journal of water resources planning and management  
This paper applies an existing deductive model of residential water use 11 for the intermittent supply system in Amman, Jordan and simulates demand responses 12 across a cross-section of households over  ...  Econometricians have long studied the effect of price on residential water 9 demand and the impact on water use of the rate (tariff) structure in which price signals 10 are embedded.  ...  This calculated elasticity was close to the price elasticity of demand reported by an 149 econometric study of Amman households over the same time period (Salman et al. 2008) . 150The remainder of this  ...

Conservation and transformation of cultural practices through contingencies and metacontingencies

Joáo Claudio Todorov
2013 Behavior and Social Issues  
The concept has generated a large amount of empirical research, much of it experimental. So far metacontingencies have been classified as ceremonial or technological.  ...  The present work advances the classification of conservative metaconcontingencies, in which the aggregate product is strictly specified by the social contingency, and transformative metacontingencies,  ...  Choices, decisions and preferences may be studied with the help of the manipulation of independent variables arranged in concurrent schedules.  ...

Surgical Scheduling via Optimization and Machine Learning with Long-Tailed Data [article]

Yuan Shi, Saied Mahdian, Jose Blanchet, Peter Glynn, Andrew Y. Shin, David Scheinker
2022 arXiv   pre-print
A conservative stochastic optimization with sufficient sampling to capture the long tail of the LOS distribution outperformed the current manual process.  ...  These results highlight the perils of using oversimplified distributional models of patient length of stay for scheduling procedures and the importance of using stochastic optimization well-suited to dealing  ...  Despite the importance of post-surgical LOS, studies commonly discard empirical LOS data after they have been used to fit the parameters of a distribution and use only synthetic data to evaluate model  ...

Translating cognitive insights into effective conservation programs: Reply to Schakner et al

Alison L. Greggor, Nicola S. Clayton, Ben Phalan, Alex Thornton
2014 Trends in Ecology & Evolution  
Without laying a general foundation of cognitive theory, examples where 18 cognition is effectively applied would seem like isolated cases of insight rather than 19 applications of a widely studied discipline  ...  However, until a greater number of species-specific guidelines are 26 developed-such as the step-by-step reinforcement schedules that Schakner et al. mention-27 the fundamentals of perception and learning  ...  The website conservationevidence.com [2] provides an 32 excellent example of how this might be achieved. 33 Several points made by Schakner et al illustrate some of the priority areas for 34 conservation-minded  ...

Adaptive battery charge scheduling with bursty workloads

Dylan Lexie, Shan Lin, Jie Wu
2012 2012 IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM)  
Based on the empirical results, we build an adaptive linear model and propose a feedback control based battery charge scheduling algorithm.  ...  Task or even device failures can occur if the voltage of the battery is low. It is very important to schedule the recharge of batteries in time.  ...  DESIGN OF DYNAMIC CHARGE SCHEDULE In this section, we describe a battery model based on our extensive empirical studies.  ...

Optimal designs for population pharmacokinetic studies of the partner drugs co-administered with artemisinin derivatives in patients with uncomplicated falciparum malaria

Kris M Jamsen, Stephen B Duffull, Joel Tarning, Niklas Lindegardh, Nicholas J White, Julie A Simpson
2012 Malaria Journal  
Optimal design methodology has been developed for population PK studies, which analytically determines a sampling schedule that is clinically feasible and yields precise estimation of model parameters.  ...  Conclusions: The sampling schedules proposed in this paper should be considered in future population pharmacokinetic studies where intensive sampling over many days or weeks of follow-up is not possible  ...  Empirical precision was not ideal for all parameters of the two-compartment model for non-pregnant adults, but again, this was due to the conservative evaluation procedure.  ...

2010 GSTF International Journal on Computing  
A scheduler in Xen handles CPU resources sharing among virtual machines hosted on the same physical system. This study is focused on a scheduler in the current Xen release -the Credit scheduler.  ...  Xen, an open source paravirtualized virtual machine monitor (hypervisor), has been adopted by many leading data centers of the world today.  ...  The second criterion to classify CPU schedulers is based on the support of work-conserving (WC-mode) and/or non work-conserving (NWCmode) modes.  ...
