Unsupervised Word Decomposition with the Promodes Algorithm [chapter]

Sebastian Spiegler, Bruno Golénia, Peter A. Flach
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present Promodes, an algorithm for unsupervised word decomposition, which is based on a probabilistic generative model.  ...  In this paper, we describe the probabilistic model, parameter estimation and how the most likely decomposition of an input word is found.  ...  Acknowledgement We would like to thank Aram Harrow for fruitful discussions on the mathematical background of this paper, our team colleagues Roger Tucker and Ksenia Shalonova for advising us on general  ...

The Role of Queueing Network Models in Performance Evaluation of Manufacturing Systems

John Jackman, Eric Johnson
1993 Journal of the Operational Research Society  
One of the main claims of queueing modelling proponents is that the run time is faster for a QNM than for a simulation model.  ...  Notes on simulation with SIMAN SIMAN is considered to be a general purpose simulation language, suitable for modelling discrete, continuous, or a combination of discrete and continuous systems.  ...

Modeling and solving a large-scale generation expansion planning problem under uncertainty

Shan Jin, Sarah M. Ryan, Jean-Paul Watson, David L. Woodruff
2011 Energy Systems, Springer Verlag  
The issues are critical for decision makers who seek truly robust recommendations for generation expansion planning.  ...  Using a realistic problem instance based on theMidwest US, we explore two fundamental, unexplored issues that arise when solving any stochastic generation expansion model.  ...  In the electric power industry, some commercial packages for generation expansion planning are available, including EGEAS [12] , ProMod [6], and Plexos [7, 8] .  ...

Francis M. Ulgado, Moonkyu Lee
1993 Journal of International Marketing  
The article concludes with guidelines for future international marketing activities and a few general observations. Globalization has become a marketing buzz word.  ...  Management styles differ across countries; for example, in Germany, greater attention is given to consensus and a multi-functional approach rather than the U.S./UK general manager model.  ...

The effects of gender and motivation on the use of language learning strategies in the Moroccan EFL context

Zahra EL , AOURI
2013 IOSR Journal of Humanities and Social Science  
The results demonstrated that Moroccan university EFL Science students used LLSs at a medium level of 3.09.  ...  Male and female students did not exhibit any significant differences on the six categories of strategies except for compensation strategies.  ...  For instance, "Allah" is the very first word in the title of the novel. This is the Islamic designation for the Supreme Being, God the creator of the universe.  ...
