Direct and Large-Eddy Simulation VII: Proceedings of the Seventh International ERCOFTAC Workshop on Direct and Large-Eddy Simulation, held at the University of Trieste, September 8-10, 2008

The 7th ERCOFTAC Workshop on "Direct and Large-Eddy Simulation" (DLES-7) was once held on the collage of Treste from September 8-10, 2008. Following the culture of prior workshops within the DLES-series this version displays the cutting-edge of numerical simulation of conventional and turbulent flows and supplied an energetic discussion board for dialogue of modern advancements in simulation strategies and knowing of move physics.

Lasers Based Manufacturing: 5th International and 26th All India Manufacturing Technology, Design and Research Conference, AIMTDR 2014

Labyrinth and Piano Key Weirs III : Proceedings of the 3rd International Workshop on Labyrinth and Piano Key Weirs (PKW 2017), February 22-24, 2017, Qui Nhon, Vietnam

Because the first implementation via Electricité de France at the Goulours dam (France) in 2006, the Piano Key Weir has turn into a progressively more utilized approach to raise the release ability of present spillways. In parallel, a number of new huge dam initiatives were equipped with any such flood regulate constitution, frequently together with gates.

Based on these observations, one can devise an efficient algorithm for identifying the most preferred arm when the underlying distribution is Mallows. The algorithm proposed in [10] for the MPI problem, called MallowsMPI, is similar to the one used for finding the largest element in an array. However, since a stochastic environment is assumed in which the outcomes of pairwise comparisons are random variables, a single comparison of two arms ai and aj is not enough; instead, they are compared until 1/2 ∈ / qi,j − ci,j , qi,j + ci,j .

PAC Rank Elicitation. In a subsequent work by Busa-Fekete et al. [11], an extended version of the top-k selection problem is considered. In the PAC rank elicitation problem, the goal is to find a ranking that is “close” to the ranking produced by the ranking procedure with high probability. To make this problem feasible, more practical ranking procedures are considered. In fact, the problem of ranking procedures like Copeland is that a minimal change of a value qi,j ≈ 12 may strongly influence the induced order relation CO .

Busa-Fekete and E. H¨ ullermeier with h(k, φ) = k/(1 − φk ). Based on this result, one can show that the “margin” min |1/2 − qi,j | i=j φ 1 , 1+φ ). around 1/2 is relatively wide; more specifically, there is no qi,j ∈ ( 1+φ Moreover, the result also implies that qi,j − qi,k = O( φ ) for arms ai , aj , ak satisfying ri = rj − = rk − − 1 with 1 < , and qi,k − qi,j = O( φ ) for arms ai , aj , ak satisfying ri = rj + = rk + + 1 with 1 < . Therefore, deciding whether an arm aj has higher or lower rank than ai (with respect to r) is easier than selecting the preferred option from two candidates aj and ak for which j, k = i.
