    GPS-Free Directional Localization Via Dual Wireless Radios

    Location discovery, especially in mobile environments, has recently become the key component of many applications. Accurate location discovery, particularly in safety critical applications using autonomous robots or unmanned vehicles, however, is still an open problem. Existing popular methods either heavily rely on the use of Global Positioning Systems (GPS) which...

    On the Complexity of Trilateration With Noisy Range Measurements

    Recent developments, especially in wireless and mobile networks, have enabled the use of location based services in many application areas. Accurate location discovery, however, is still an open problem. A widely used and practical localization method is trilateration. However, trilateration works best when exact range measurements are available, which is...

    Modeling and Simulation of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

    A model is a simplified representation of a system that aids the understanding and investigation of the real system. Simulation is the manipulation of the model of a system enabling to observe the behavior of the system in a setting similar to real-life. By modeling and simulation of a Mobile...

    A Fuzzy Perspective for Two-Dimensional Packing of Variable-Sized Items

    In this paper, a two-dimensional packing problem encountered in the telecommunications area is investigated, which deals with the allocation of data transmission from a base station to many mobile stations for certain frames of time with varying objectives. The packed items have rectangular areas with variable width and height. The...

    The Battle Against The Global Financial Crisis: The Case For The E-Reverse Auction

    With the advent of the current financial crisis, the economy has been flooded with uncertainty, leaving businesses with a realistic threat for their existence. The globalization process, with its many benefits and opportunities for lower costs and more efficient sourcing, has enabled the crisis to spread worldwide, infecting markets and...

    The Impact Of Corruption On FDI: An Application Of Efficient Grease Hypothesis To EU Countries

    This paper empirically examines the impact of corruption on FDI in European Union countries, including candidate countries. The authors' aim is to verify whether Efficient Grease Hypothesis does hold in the case of the EU. Contrary to the Hypothesis, they find that corruption has a negative impact on FDI. In...

    How Does FDI And Economic Growth Affect Each Other? The OECD Case

    This paper tests the endogenous relationship between FDI and economic growth using a panel dataset for 23 OECD countries for the period 1975-2004. Following the literature, the authors treat economic growth and FDI as endogenous variables, and estimate a two-equation simultaneous equation system with the Generalized Methods of Moments (GMM)...
