This book chapter presents two special algorithms, Mean Value Analysis and Convolution Algorithm, for the analysis of closed queuing networks, and an introduction to simulation techniques that are widely used in analyzing queuing systems in general.
This paper discusses grid-based coordinated routing in wireless sensor networks and compares the energy available in the network over time for different grid sizes. The authors explore the quality of service of wireless sensor networks, how the coordinator nodes are elected, and the size of the grid area that will minimize the total energy consumption and extend the lifetime of the network.
This paper describes the University of North Texas SubFinder system. The system is able to provide the most likely set of substitutes for a word in a given context, by combining several techniques and knowledge sources. SubFinder has successfully participated in the best and out of ten (oot) tracks in the SEMEVAL lexical substitution task, consistently ranking in the first or second place.
This paper discusses the addition of a new Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering at the University of North Texas (UNT). Those involved see the curriculum for this new program as a new model of engineering education that parallels the innovations of UNTs current Learning to Learn (L2L) project-oriented concept course with the addition of innovative approaches for mechanical engineering and emphasis on energy engineering education.
In this paper, the authors summarize the main theories of humor that emerged from philosophical and modern psychological research, and survey the past and present developments in the fields of theoretical and computational linguistics.
This paper describes a method for generating sense-tagged data using Wikipedia as a source of sense annotations. Through word sense disambiguation experiments, the authors show that the Wikipedia-based sense annotations are reliable and can be used to construct accurate sense classifiers.
This paper introduces the use of Wikipedia as a resource for automatic keyword extraction and word sense disambiguation, and shows how this online encyclopedia can be used to achieve state-of-the-art results on both these tasks.
