Modeling Political Belief and Its Propagation, with Malaysia as a Driving Context  [PDF]
Nordin Zakaria
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2014.42008

We discuss in this paper an agent-based social simulation model that describes the propagation of political belief in Malaysia. Worldview map is used as the representational scheme for political belief. Inter-agent interaction propagates the belief throughout the agent population, subject to similarity of emotion between the interacting agents and their distances apart, and various attributes of the individual agents. Media broadcast may be used by agents in their attempt to extend their reach. Computational experiments made using the model point to its plausibility. Further, it highlights, for the ruling coalition, the importance of both a strong political propaganda machinery and a strong governance in winning the hearts and minds of the electorate.

Research Journal of Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology , 2012,
Abstract: The main purpose of this study is analysis of the parameters and the affects of those on the performance of the facial expressions classification systems. In recent years understanding of emotions is a basic requirement in the development of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) systems. Therefore, an HCI is highly depended on accurate understanding of facial expression. Classification module is the main part of facial expressions recognition system. Numerous classification techniques were proposed in the previous researches to use in the facial expressions recognition systems. In order to evaluate the performance of the classification system we should consider the parameters which influence the classification results. Therefore, in this article, the most recent classification techniques for the purpose of facial expressions recognition as well as features extraction were surveyed and the parameters which affect the accuracy of results were considered and discussed. Based on this article, the features type, number of extracted features, database and image type are the main parameters that influence the accuracy rate of classification models. Furthermore, as the direction of the future work of this research, a Genetic-Fuzzy classification model was proposed for facial expressions recognition to fulfill the classification requirements.
Do Sex Differences in the Association between Work Exposure and Health in the Manufacturing Industry Depend on Work Context? Results from the WOLF-Study  [PDF]

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.58101

The aim of this study is to investigate the associations between work exposure such as psychosocial work factors and work posture, and health in men and women with the same type of occupation in the manufacturing industry. Two follow-ups with a follow-up rate of 67% from the WOrk, Lipids and Fibrinogen (WOLF) cohort from the Northern Sweden were used. The database included 1589 men and 286 women, which is representative of the proportions between men and women in the Swedish manufacturing industry. To be able to understand the importance of work context, the participants were categorized according to work tasks (working with things or symbols). Logistic regression was used for interaction analyses between sex and psychosocial work factors (such as demand, control, social support, role conflict, and work-family conflict) as well as physical work factors (such as work posture), and health outcomes (work overcommitment, fatigue, and neck and back pain). The results showed contextually different patterns of sex different associations between psychosocial work factors and health outcomes. For instance, women were at larger risk of ill-health (in the form of work overcommitment) when working with things, whereas men were at larger risk of both work overcommitment and fatigue when working with symbols. Women working with symbols had a larger risk of neck and back pain due to work-family conflict. The health outcome that was most sensitive to the sex different associations was work overcommitment. In conclusion, the work context matters for sex differences in the association between psychosocial work factors and health and since work overcommitment is a predictor of disease, it should be of interest for the Occupational Health Services and personnel departments to survey.

An Investigation of Self-Interference Reduction Strategy in a Spatially Correlated MIMO Channel
Rosdiadee Nordin
Journal of Computer Networks and Communications , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/424037
Abstract: One of the efficient ways to transmit high data rate is by employing a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission. One of the MIMO schemes, known as spatial multiplexing (SM), relies on the linear independence data streams from different transmit antennas to exploit the capacity from the fading channels. Consequently, SM suffers from the effect of spatial correlation which is the limiting factor in achieving the capacity benefit that SM can offer. In an attempt to increase the robustness of the SM transmission in a wide range of correlated channels, the use of dynamic subcarrier allocation (DSA) is investigated. The effective signal-to-interference-and-noise ratio (SINR) metric is used as the performance metric to determine the subcarrier quality which can then be utilised in the allocation. Two novel variants of the subcarrier allocation scheme are proposed. It is shown that the DSA-SINR approach improves the BER performance of SM transmission in highly correlated channels environment.

A Linear Programming Formulation of Macroeconomic Performance: The Case of Asia Pacific
Nordin Mohamad
Matematika , 2007,
Abstract: A mathematical programming technique in productivity management, known as Data Envelopment Analysis, DEA, is used to estimate how well the nations in Asia and the Pacific utilize their resources. Based on selected input and output indicators, we apply an output-oriented DEA model of Charnes, Cooper and Rhodes to assess their relative performance. For each inefficient unit (nation), DEA identifies the peer units, sources and levels of inefficiency for each input and output. The efficient units are ranked using the Andersen-Petersen's DEA model. The results generated are analyzed and compared.

Exploiting Spatial and Frequency Diversity in Spatially Correlated MU-MIMO Downlink Channels

Journal of Computer Networks and Communications , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/414796
Abstract: The effect of self-interference due to the increase of spatial correlation in a MIMO channel has become one of the limiting factors towards the implementation of future network downlink transmissions. This paper aims to reduce the effect of self-interference in a downlink multiuser- (MU-) MIMO transmission by exploiting the available spatial and frequency diversity. The subcarrier allocation scheme can exploit the frequency diversity to determine the self-interference from the ESINR metric, while the spatial diversity can be exploited by introducing the partial feedback scheme, which offers knowledge of the channel condition to the base station and further reduces the effect before the allocation process takes place. The results have shown that the proposed downlink transmission scheme offers robust bit error rate (BER) performance, even when simulated in a fully correlated channel, without imposing higher feedback requirements on the base controller. 1. Introduction Dynamic resource assignment from the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) in combination with multiplicative increase in throughput from Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology offers improved spectral diversity in a wireless downlink transmission. The result of this combination is able to provide a highly efficient and low latency with enhanced spectrum flexibility radio interface, as can be seen from the downlink implementation of a Long Term Evolution (LTE) network [1]. In addition, the LTE network benefits from MU-MIMO, a multiuser diversity technique that exploits the spatial diversity from the channel knowledge at the transmitter, that is, channel state information (CSI), to improve the performance gain. However, accurate CSI is obtained at the expense of massive feedback overhead. A partial feedback scheme, which is based on a quantized discrete Fourier transform (DFT), is considered in this paper. Instead of feeding back the full CSI, mobile users update the E-UTRAN Node B (eNodeB) with the preferred precoding matrix based on the channel quality indicator (CQI). The implementation of the full feedback scheme comes at the expense of CSI; therefore, it requires an enormous amount of feedback to the eNodeB. This scenario is not practical for the downlink implementation because eNodeB requires a higher level of computational overhead to compute the channel matrix. This situation worsens when the channel is severely impaired by channel imperfection, such as spatial correlation, which is also described by Gesbert et al. [2] as an effect of self-interference.

Physics , 2014,
Abstract: In this paper commutator expansions for solving the Bloch-Torrey's equation are derived. An exact solution for free diffusion in a constant magnetic field gradient is found. Furthermore the moments of the signal in the short gradient pulse limit for spins confined to a restricted geometry are derived. The moments are tested numerically against the known solution of diffusing spins between two perpendicular plates in the short gradient pulse limit.
