Box 15875-4413, IranJournal Article20190827The capacitated minimum spanning tree problem (CMSTP), a well-known combinatorial optimiza-<br /> tion problem, holds a central place in telecommunication network design. This problem is to find a minimum<br /> cost spanning tree with an extra cardinality limitation on the orders of the subtrees incident to a certain root<br /> node. The balanced capacitated minimum spanning tree problem (BCMSTP) is a special case that aims to balance the orders of the subtrees. We show this problem is NP-hard and present two approximation algorithms,<br /> in this paper.<br /> Considering the maximum order of the subtrees Q, we provide a (3 - 1<br /> /Q)-approximation algorithm to find a<br /> balanced solution. We improve this result to a (2:5 + epsilon)-approximation algorithm (for every given epsilon > 0), in<br /> the 2d-Euclidean spaces. Also, we present a polynomial time approximation scheme (PTAS) for CMSTP.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_22044_172844d97d2bbd018bfc3773ff00991f.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601Tight online conflict-free coloring of intervals149314962206810.24200/sci.2020.54600.3826ENM.A.AbamDepartment of Computer Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, IranJournal Article20191028We revisit the problem of online conflict-free coloring of intervals on a line, where each newly inserted interval must be assigned a color upon insertion such that the coloring remains conflict-free, i.e. for each point $p$ in the union of the current intervals, there must be an interval $I$ with a unique color among all intervals covering $p$. To best of our knowledge, the best-known algorithm uses $O(log^3 n )$ colors, where $n$ is the number of current intervals. We present a simple greedy algorithm that uses only $O(log n)$ colors. Therefore, we settle down the open problem raised in cite{ars14}.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_22068_c78602be375ed7f3f9d321aa6f47f3f2.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601A dynamic balanced level generator for video games based on deep convolutional generative adversarial networks149715142208210.24200/sci.2020.54747.3897ENM.RajabiComputer Games Research Laboratory, School of Computer Engineering, Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, IranM.AshtianiComputer Games Research Laboratory, School of Computer Engineering, Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, IranB.Minaei BidgoliComputer Games Research Laboratory, School of Computer Engineering, Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, IranO.DavoodiComputer Games Research Laboratory, School of Computer Engineering, Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, IranJournal Article20191031In the gaming industry, creating well-balanced games is one of the major challenges developers are currently facing. Balance in games has different meanings depending on the game type. But, most of the existing definitions are esteemed from the flow theory. Flow theory in video games is stating that the level of challenge existing in the game must be neither too easy nor too difficult for the player. Games that are not balanced will have a high churn rate and will suffer in terms of monetization. Hence, nowadays a trending research area is focused on establishing mechanisms to create automatic balance in an algorithmic way. In this research, we have used generative adversarial networks (GANs) to automatically create balanced levels. In the proposed work, a level of a 2D platformer game is fed to the network. Finally, the network automatically generates new balanced levels and the levels are checked to see if they have the game’s minimum necessary requirements and also to check if they can be solved by the reinforcement learning agent. In the series of performed evaluations, it is shown that after the training process, the proposed approach is capable of generating levels that are well-balanced with considerable accuracy.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_22082_ca22b9a3e62e0527d9bc31019e5d8b1d.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601Multi-robot exploration on grids with a bounded time151515282205710.24200/sci.2020.51795.2366ENM.DavoodiDepartment of Computer Science and Information Technology, Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Science, Gavazang, Zanjan0000-0003-1010-4121E.DelfarazDepartment of Computer Science and Information Technology, Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Science, Gavazang, ZanjanS.GhobadiDepartment of Computer Science and Information Technology, Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Science, Gavazang, ZanjanM.MasooriDepartment of Computer Science and Information Technology, Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Science, Gavazang, ZanjanJournal Article20181117In this paper, the problem of exploring a grid environment in the offline setting has been studied. The goal is to propose an algorithm to find the minimum number of robots for exploring a rectangular grid environment with $n$ rows and $m$ columns, denoted by $R(n,m)$, in a predefined time $T$. In the case that there are no obstacles in the environment, an optimal solution has been proposed for the problem. In the other case when the environment may contain some obstacles, it has been pointed out that the problem is NP-complete and cannot be approximated within better than a factor 2. Finally, a $4$-approximation algorithm has been presented in order to explore $R(n,m)$ in the presence of obstacles.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_22057_fe2a047d7a5b57337b8e0557183ed185.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601Extending concepts of mapping of human brain to artificial intelligence and neural networks152915342181410.24200/sci.2020.53714.3378ENA.JoghataieDepartment of Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering Group, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, IranJournal Article20190623The concept of Homunculus from human neurophysiology is extended to artificially intelligent systems. It is assumed that an artificially intelligent processing system behaves similar to a minicolumn or ganglion in the natural animal brain, where in general there is a layer of afferent (input) neurons, a number of interconnecting processing cells, and a layer of efferent (output) neurons or organs. The objective is to identify the correlation between the stimulus to each afferent neuron and the corresponding response from each efferent organ when the intelligent system is subjected to its expected stimuli. To illustrate the general concept a small 3-layered feedforward neural network is used as a simple example and a NNculus is built. Building NN and AI culi for autonomous robots can be used in their design and for performance quality control. Another useful application is in studying the topographic organization in internal layers of the minicolumns of human brain through hardware or numerical simulations.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_21814_fcb7bc19aa0e6c0debbc16e983e70ed4.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601Guest editorial: Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks1535153822375ENS.JafariDepartment of Biomedical Engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, IranM.Perc- Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, University of Maribor, Koroskacesta 160, 2000 Maribor, Slovenia.

To show the understandability of a simple sentence in the prediction of future situations, the meaning of a sentence is modeled as a fuzzy if-then rule, and the fuzzy model is investigated in an iterative process. The main goal of the paper is modeling a linguistic rule. This is done using an if-then rule and its variation through one person to another. The model predicts that the interpretation reaching the final person in the following years can be chaotic and thus unpredictable.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_21548_b9ca596dd33b671ef781583424409f1d.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601A methodology for examining the chaotic behavior of CoP signal during quiet standing based on empirical mode decomposition method156015692153210.24200/sci.2019.52901.2943ENR.HajipourResearch Center of Biomedical Engineering, Mashhad Branch, Islamic Azad University, Mashhad, IranF.Asadollahzadeh ShamkhalDepartment of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, IranH. R.KobraviResearch Center of Biomedical Engineering, Mashhad Branch, Islamic Azad University, Mashhad, IranJournal Article20190209A key parameter for analyzing the human balance dynamics during standing is the center of pressure (CoP). But, so far no conclusive idea has been posed with respect to elicited dynamics of the CoP signal during quiet standing. In this paper, a heuristic algorithm has been proposed to prove the chaotic behavior of the CoP signal with high confidence. In the proposed algorithm, at first the deterministic and non-deterministic (may be stochastic or may be chaotic) components of CoP signal are extracted using the empirical mode decomposition (EMD) method. Then the nonlinear features of the extracted components such as fractal dimension, Lyapunov exponent, correlation dimension, and alpha parameter are computed. Then according to the quantitative value of the computed features, the chaotic component is selected among the extracted components. Finally, using the recurrence quantitative analysis (RQA), the selected chaotic component is reanalyzed to give assurance of correct selecting the chaotic component. In this manner, the kind of CoP dynamics can be determined with high confidence. The analyzed CoP signals were recorded through some experiments on 12 healthy subjects being between 20 to 70 years old. The results of this study show that CoP is a chaotic signal whit high confidence.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_21532_508aaf2b05c54160ccf888bdb627160e.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601A linear matrix inequality approach to discrete-time finite impulse response controller design for integrating time-delay processes157015782168910.24200/sci.2019.53364.3205ENH.NajafizadeganDepartment of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Zanjan, Zanjan, P.O.

For this purpose, the loop shaping scheme is employed in the linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) framework for adjusting some characteristics of the open-loop frequency response such as phase margin and bandwidth to the desired values at appropriate frequencies. Unlike the conventional methods which work based on state-space models, the proposed procedure generates LMIs directly in the frequency domain.

A.ShayanfarCentre of Excellence for Power System Automation and Operation, Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, IranJournal Article20190729This paper presents a response-based generating rejection scheme (GRS) based on an angular stability prediction logic to initiate the outage of accelerated generating units while saving the rest of generating units from the loss of synchronism. First trigonometric, polynomial, and hybrid models of rotor angle trajectory based on the reasonable assumptions are proofed. Then, by taking these models in the prediction step, through the maximum use of measured data based on defining the forecast horizon (FH) and data window with incremental length, the stability/instability of generating units is separately predicted. Next, the status of tripping signal based on a combinational logic of the output results of the angular stability prediction method is specified. In the developed logic, if at least two models of the three designated models yield the same response about the unit stability status, the trip signal is accordingly fired or blocked. The proposed method is examined on the one machine infinite bus and the WSCC standard test bed under different operation and fault scenarios. The obtained results demonstrate that beside simplicity, low computational burden, and very short processing time, the proposed combinatorial method outperforms the existing ones working with individual prediction models.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_21690_43fcef38ca7e18af8a390c5e91ce4342.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601Tele-operation of autonomous vehicles over additive white Gaussian noise channel159216052178210.24200/sci.2020.54447.3755ENA.ParsaDepartment of Electrical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, IranA.FarhadiDepartment of Electrical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, IranJournal Article20190917This paper is concerned with the tele-operation of autonomous vehicles over analog Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel, which is subject to transmission noise and power constraint. The nonlinear dynamic of autonomous vehicle is described by the unicycle model and is cascaded with a bandpass filter acting as encoder. Using the describing function method, the nonlinear dynamic of autonomous vehicle is represented by an approximate linear system. Then, the available results for linear control over analog AWGN channel are extended to account for linear continuous time systems with non - real valued and multiple real valued eigenvalues and for tracking a non-zero reference signal. Subsequently, by applying the extended results on the describing function of autonomous vehicles, a mean square control technique including an encoder, decoder and a controller is presented for reference tracking of the tele-operation of autonomous vehicles over AWGN channel. The satisfactory performance of the proposed control technique is illustrated by computer simulations.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_21782_f520c0997d53809e04dd9cd769b0914c.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601Global practical stabilization of discrete-time switched affine systems via switched Lyapunov functions and state-dependent switching functions160616202200510.24200/sci.2020.54524.3793ENM.HejriDepartment of Electrical Engineering, Sahand University of Technology, Sahand New Town, Tabriz, P.O.

Using mathematical modeling can make experimental tests easier to process and evaluate. It can also help to predict the disease progress and provide a better insight into the virus development. In this study, a new nonlinear differential equation model is introduced to investigate the interaction of the HIV virus with the body immune system. This is a physiological-based model capable of representing complex behaviors. The bifurcation analysis with a variation of activated healthy T cells is carried out. It is shown that the chaotic development of the virus is available for some ranges of activated healthy T cells. This may explain why the virus develops differently in different individuals or under different circumstances. The chaotic region contains some narrow periodic windows, in which the chaotic mode suddenly ends at some critical points, and the system starts a periodic behavior for a tiny range of active healthy T cells. This may indicate the possibility of controllable development of the HIV virus even when it is in the random-like phase of the disease. For more illustration, the system's state space is represented.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_22280_5f677c28c9a495faf2f12cf6402fbbb1.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601How can we measure the slowing down of healthy and ischemic stroke individuals?165316602214310.24200/sci.2021.56772.4910ENF.NazarimehrDepartment of Biomedical Engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, 15875-4413, Iran0000-0002-2664-9006F.ShahbodaghyDepartment of Biomedical Engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, 15875-4413, IranB.HatefNeuroscience Research Center, Baqiyatallah University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, IranK.RajagopalNonlinear Systems and Applications, Faculty of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Ton Duc Thang University, Ho Chi Minh
City, VietnamJournal Article20200912Recently, resilience has attracted lots of attention in the study of biological systems. The goal of this paper is investigating the slowness in ischemic stroke patients. A Trier Social Stress Test (TSST) is used to reveal the slowness of the biological system. The slowness of dynamics is calculated for the ECG of healthy individuals and patients with ischemic stroke. The ECG is investigated in four stages: before stress, right after stress, 20 minutes after stress, and 40 minutes after stress. Ten healthy individuals and nine ischemic stroke patients are studied. Six early warning indicators based on slowness and variability are used in this study. The indicators are applied to the RR interval of individuals in four stages. Also, the results were normalized with the rest state of each individual. Heart rate variations were studied as another measure of the slowness of the dynamics. The results reveal that there is no significant difference in the slowness of healthy and patient cases. So, in this case, resilience cannot be used in predicting health problems.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_22143_e5d9d46ea443923adb41218909d2b98e.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601Discontinuous coupling and transition from synchronization to an intermittent transient chimera state166116682228210.24200/sci.2021.57386.5212ENZ.WangShaanxi Engineering Research Center of Controllable Neutron Source, School of Science, Xijing University, Xi'an 710123, P.R.

The majority of the studies have considered a static scheme for the network. In this paper, the synchronization patterns of a time-varying network with discontinuous coupling (on/off links) are studied. At first, the prerequisites for the synchronization of continuous and discontinuous coupling are found by the master stability function method. It is observed that when the network with continuous coupling is set in the synchronous region, changing the coupling to a discontinuous one leads to the emergence of a pattern consisting of alternating synchronization, asynchronization, and chimera state. We call this pattern intermittent transient chimera. The study is completed by investigating the effect of the rate of discontinuity on the network behavior.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_22282_764705e01309a29ad0fbbb1113087fd2.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601Effect of diluted connectivities on cluster synchronization of adaptively coupled oscillator networks166916842236410.24200/sci.2021.57526.5284ENS.VockInstitute of Theoretical Physics, Technische Universitat Berlin, Hardenbergstrabe 36, 10623 Berlin, GermanyR.Berner- Institute of Theoretical Physics, Technische Universitat Berlin, Hardenbergstrabe 36, 10623 Berlin, Germany

Many real-world networks have adaptive properties, meaning that their connectivities change with time, depending on the dynamical state of the system. Networks of adaptively coupled oscillators show various synchronization phenomena, such as hierarchical multifrequency clusters, traveling waves, or chimera states. While these self-organized patterns have been previously studied on all-to-all coupled networks, this work extends the investigations towards more complex networks, analyzing the influence of random network topologies for various degrees of dilution of the connectivities. Using numerical and analytical approaches, we investigate the robustness of multicluster states on networks of adaptively coupled Kuramoto-Sakaguchi oscillators against the random dilution of the underlying network topology. We utilize the master stability approach for adaptive networks in order to highlight the interplay between adaptivity and topology. With this, we show the robustness of multifrequency cluster states to diluted connectivities.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_22364_f3345362ef1d25239bc80998cb075d40.pdfSharif University of TechnologyScientia Iranica1026-309828Special issue on collective behavior of nonlinear dynamical networks20210601Complex dynamics of a Fitzhugh-Rinzel neuron model considering the effect of electromagnetic induction168516972236510.24200/sci.2021.57547.5295ENZ.WangShaanxi Engineering Research Center of Controllable Neutron Source, School of Science, Xijing University, Xi'an 710123, ChinaP.ZhangShaanxi Engineering Research Center of Controllable Neutron Source, School of Science, Xijing University, Xi'an 710123, ChinaI.MorozMathematical Institute, University of Oxford, Andrew Wiles Building, Oxford, UKA.KarthikeyanNonlinear Systems and Applications, Faculty of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Ton Duc Thang University, Ho Chi Minh
City, VietnamJournal Article20210116Different single computational neuron models have been proposed in the literature. Most of them belong to the Hodgkin–Huxley (H-H) type, in which they can produce complex behavior of the neuron and have efficient computational cost. In this paper, a modified FitzHugh-Rinzel (FH-R) model considering the effect of magnetic induction is proposed. Different features of the model are explored from a complex and nonlinear perspective. For instance, the impact of the magnetic field on the stability of the equilibrium points is studied by stability analysis. Bifurcation analysis reveals that the proposed neuron model has multi-stability. Furthermore, the spatiotemporal behavior of the proposed model is investigated in the complex network consisting of FH-R oscillators, and the effect of external stimuli is explored on wave propagation of the network.http://scientiairanica.sharif.edu/article_22365_11242489429d976686aedc84514ccb5d.pdf
