    Improving Resource Utilization in Cloud Environments using Application Placement Heuristics

    Application placement is an important concept when providing software as a service in cloud environments. Because of the potential downtime cost of application migration, most of the time additional resource acquisition is preferred over migrating the applications residing in the Virtual Machines (VMs). This situation results in under-utilized resources. To...

    Business Strategies and Gaps in Porter'S Typology: A Literature Review

    The purpose of this paper is to examine the literature on the typologies and taxonomies of business strategies in order to find generic business strategies that a company can follow and to assess whether Porter's typology shares characteristics with previous studies. For this purpose, the authors analyze 21 typologies and...

    Dimensionality Reduced Decoding for the Golden Code With the Worst-Case Complexity of O(m1.5) for Low Range of SNR

    The multiple antenna technique with space-time coding is efficient to communicate reliably on multipath wireless channel at high-data rates. The golden code is a well-known space-time code for two transmit antennas that is full-rate, fully diverse and it has better Bit-Error-Rate (BER) performance than other known codes for two transmit...

    Optimal Security Limits of RFID Distance Bounding Protocols

    In this paper, the authors classify the RFID distance bounding protocols having bitwise fast phases and no final signature. They also give the theoretical security bounds for two specific classes, leaving the security bounds for the general case as an open problem. As for the classification, they introduce the notion...

    Development of Industrial Knowledge Management Applications With Case-Based Reasoning

    The successful development, deployment and utilization of case-based reasoning systems in commercial environments require the development team to focus on aspects that go beyond the core CBR engine itself. Characteristics of the users, the organization and the domain have considerable impact on the design decisions during implementation and on the...

    Revisiting The Investment Development Path (IDP): A Non Linear Fluctuation Approach

    The Investment Development Path (IDP) approach claims that countries go through five stages with respect to their net outward investment positions as they develop. Attempts to test its validity using time-series or cross-section estimation techniques were moderately successful and the functional specifications used did not reflect IDP structure well. In...

    Feasibility Conditions for Interference Alignment

    The Degrees of Freedom (DoF) of K-user MIMO interference networks with constant channel coefficients are not known in general. Determining the feasibility of a linear interference alignment is a key step toward solving this open problem. The authors' approach in this paper is to view the alignment problem for interference...

    Exchange Rate Regime Choice And Currency Crises

    This paper aims to fill the gap between exchange rate regime choice and currency crises literatures. Through explicitly taking into account the exchange rate regime choice of countries in explaining the occurrence of currency crisis, it is tempting to think that sources of vulnerabilities, eventually leading countries to crises, might...

    Development of a Service Oriented Architecture Based GIS for Earth Sciences

    The paper studies of recent crustal movements are based on analyses of repeated geodetic measurements, and their combination with results of geophysical and geological investigations. It is obvious that a single data producer can not produce useful datasets and information without integrating data from others because one scientist's results become...
