Smart Variations: Functional Substructures for Part Compatibility

Youyi Zheng, Daniel Cohen-Or, Niloy J. Mitra
2013 Computer graphics forum (Print)  
Hence, we propose a purely geometric approach based on such substructures to match, replace, and position triplets of parts to create non-trivial, yet functionally plausible, model variations.  ...  As collections of 3D models continue to grow, reusing model parts allows generation of novel model variations.  ...  We thank the anonymous reviewers for their useful suggestions and Melinos Averkiou for carefully proofreading the paper.  ...

Optimal Nonpreemptive Scheduling in a Smart Grid Model

Fu-Hong Liu, Hsiang-Hsuan Liu, Prudence W. H. Wong, Marc Herbstritt
2016 International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation  
The electricity cost is measured by a convex function of the load in each timeslot. The objective is to schedule all requests with the minimum total electricity cost.  ...  We study a scheduling problem arising in demand response management in smart grid. Consumers send in power requests with a flexible feasible time interval during which their requests can be served.  ...  Such partition usually leads to optimal substructures; however, non-preemption makes it trickier and requires a smart way to handle jobs spanning multiple windows.  ...
