The Research of Panorama Matching Stitching Algorithm Based on a Predetermined Image Framework Strategy

Journal of Image and Signal Processing (JISP) , 2015, DOI: 10.12677/JISP.2015.44013
Because of the particularity of the mural mosaic work in the panorama stitching, the existing algorithms can’t satisfy the needs. We set up three-dimensional reconstruction by a structure-from- motion (SFM) system to obtain the framework, and then project the no-frame images to the frame by Moving DLT in order to refine the transformations. The experiment shows a better result between objectivity and subjectivity compared with commercial softwares.
“Smart Design” of Quantum Wells and Double-Quantum Wells Structures  [PDF]
Igor Tralle, Klaudiusz Majchrowski
World Journal of Condensed Matter Physics (WJCMP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/wjcmp.2014.41004

In the work, we propose an approach to smart designof heterostructures (quantum wells and superlattices) based on the combination of Inverse Scattering Problem Method and the direct solution of the eigenvalue problem for the Schr?dinger equation with reconstructed potentials. Potential shape reconstructed in this way can be substituted then by some approximation, so that the output spectrum obtained by solving the Schr?dinger equation with such approximated potential, differs only slightly from the input one. In our opinion, the approach can be used in many applications, for instance, for developing the new electronic devices such as tunable THz detectors.

Open Journal of Preventive Medicine (OJPM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojpm.2015.510047
Abstract: This framework is designed to encourage transdisciplinary research that will integrate social determinants in cancer research. This framework is designed to help conceptualize how the social determinants interact with other factors in the etiology of cancer. The factors influencing the populations of cancer in Morocco and other countries of the world can be classified into seven groups: 1) Political and institutional factors, 2) Socio-cultural factors, 3) Socio-economic factors, 4) Environmental factors, 5) Biological factors, 6) Factors related to lifestyle, and 7) Those related to the health system.

Abstract: the objective of this study was to prepare and evaluate chronotherapeutic drug delivery systems (chrdds) of torsemide. compression coated tablets (cct) containing torsemide in the core tablet were prepared by the compression coating technique with different grades of polyethylene oxide (peo wsr 301 & 1105). the optimized formulations were characterised for tabletting parameters and drug polymer interaction by fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (ftir).the hardness of all the cct using peo wsr 301 & peo wsr 1105 were in the range 6-8 kg/cm2 & 5.5 to 7 kg/cm2 respectively. their friability values were <0.3%. all the cct showed a clear lag time but finalized as per the predetermined lag time. as the amount of peo was increased in the outer layer the drug released was delayed. the drug content of all the cct was >99%. the ftir studies showed no interaction throughout the process of development. formulations of f7 and of p7 were considered optimized formulations since they yielded a predetermined lag time of 6h before burst release. hence, these formulations can be exploited to achieve chronotherapeutic drug delivery systems of torsemide for the treatment of hypertension at the time the patient needs it.
Power Perspective: A New Framework for Top Management Team Theory  [PDF]
Yueming Chen, Yuhui Ge, Zhiqiang Song
iBusiness (IB) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2010.23035
Abstract: Top management team theory (TMTT) has been researching on the relationship between top management team (TMT) and organization outcome through demographic characteristic and its heterogeneity. As the researcher failed to solve the “black box” problem, they get no consistent findings. Power perspective of TMTT will help out of the research predicament, so to focus on combing and assessing the TMT power, demographic characteristic based TMTT research and TMT team process. Based on the early research works, new research framework of power-based TMTT and future research suggestions are proposed.
Proposed Framework for Security Risk Assessment  [PDF]
Zakaria I. Saleh, Heba Refai, Ahmad Mashhour
Journal of Information Security (JIS) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jis.2011.22008
Abstract: Security risk assessment framework provides comprehensive structure for security risk analysis that would help uncover systems’ threats and vulnerabilities. While security risk assessment is an important step in the security risk management process, this paper will focus only on the security risk assessment framework. Viewing issues that exist in a current framework, we have developed a new framework for security risk and vulnerabilities assessment by adding new components to the processes of the existing framework. The proposed framework will further enhance the outcome of the risk assessment, and improve the effectiveness of the current framework. To demonstrate the efficiency the proposed framework, a network security simulation as well as filed tests of an existing network where conducted.

Eliza Laiyi Wong, Richard Huan Xu, Suifai Lui, Annie Wailing Cheung, Eng-Kiong Yeoh
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2018.85026
Abstract: Objective: To investigate patient engagement to gain understandings of professional and patient’s views and inform the development of a patient engagement conceptual framework for further development of a valid and reliable evaluated measure. Method: 17 selected hospitals from Hong Kong East Cluster, Hong Kong West Cluster, Kowloon Central Cluster, Kowloon East Cluster and New Territory East Cluster of Hospital Authority Hong Kong involved in the study. Focus groups were conducted with 37 medical staffs, which included 15 doctors and 22 nurses, and 33 patients. Semi-structured qualitative interview study, with purposive sampling and constant comparative analysis. Results: Data were analyzed using a qualitative approach of latent content analysis. Patient engagement is a multi-dimensional concept. Five hierarchical themes separately from the patient and medical staff’s perspectives containing different conceptions and attitudes related to patient engagement have been identified and summarized. Through analyzing both professional and patients’ perspectives, a hierarchical framework incorporating patients-professional dynamically fluctuating relationship was built. The framework divides engagement into five levels and five stages. Conclusions: Patient engagement is recognized by more patients and professionals as a means and a cornerstone to build the foundation of patient-centered-care. Our framework encourages that patient engagement related to not only an individual patient’s behavior but a reciprocal, dynamic and pluralistic relationship with their professionals and healthcare systems. Understand this relationship can help us better conceptualizing, evaluating, and implementing interventions to improve the population’s health.

Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.811161
Abstract: Development of a country depends on its economic growth which depends also on several factors which can be both micro and macroeconomic. The financial sector is the lung of the economy; more exactly the banking sector contributes in a non negligible part to this growth. The competitiveness, effectiveness and efficiency of banking sector make it reliable to the economy. Unfortunately, evidences have shown that most Sub-Saharan countries don’t rely much on their financial sector, mainly due to challenges they face. This paper aims to analyze the competitiveness and the driving factors in Togolese banking sector with macroeconomic development using Structure-Conduct and Performance (SCP) framework and regression models. The research covers a period of sixteen years (from 2000 to 2015), with ten banks. This research proxies the asset in a panel A and profit in a panel B for the bank’s competitiveness. The results are of panel regressions with fixed effects and robust standard errors. Considering the Panel A, the variables Inter-Banks loans, customers loans, Inter-Banks Debts, Customers Debts are the driving factor of the competitiveness. However, the size of the bank proxied by profit has no impact on the competitiveness. The result suggests that the reform which has started since 1990 should be completed; there should be organizational and financial restructuring.

Abstract: This paper is aimed at presenting a concept of a flexible diagramming framework for building engineering and educational applications. The framework was designed to serve as a platform for online services and collaborative environments where users typically work on remotely stored, shared data through a browser-based user interface. The paper summarizes the common requirements towards such services, overviews related approaches and gives insights into some design challenges through the analysis of two use-cases. The design problem is examined from a user-centered view: the key motivation of our research is to find innovative, possibly device- independent solutions that enable seamless user experiences. A generic framework based on JavaScript and HTML5 on the client-side, using novel, high-performance JavaScript technologies on the server-side is proposed. This framework could be employed for implementing a wide spectrum of software solutions from diagramming- related e-learning to cloud-based modeling environments.
