    ABSTRACT: Task Assignment in distributed server systems focuses on the policy that assigns the tasks reached these systems in order to improve the response time. These tasks, generally, have the property that there is a tiny fraction (about 3%) of the large tasks that makes half (50%) of the total load. However, this property creates additional problems: the large tasks make the load difficult to balance among the servers, and the small tasks will be delayed by the large ones when they are in the same queue. In this paper, we propose a new policy for the Web clusters that we call Partitioning Large Tasks (PLT) and which deals with these problems mostly under a high traffic demand and a high variability of task sizes. PLT partitions each large task into fragments and assigns them to be processed in a parallel way and completing at the same time to improve the mean response time, and separates the small tasks from the large tasks to avoid being delayed. Performance tests show a significantly improvement in performance of PLT over the existing task assignment policies.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, an affine-scaling derivative-free trust-region method with interior backtracking line search technique is considered for solving nonlinear systems subject to linear inequality constraints. The proposed algorithm is designed to take advantage of the problem structured by building polynomial interpolation models for each function in the nonlinear system function F. The proposed approach is developed by forming a quadratic model with an appropriate quadratic function and scaling matrix: there is no need to handle the constraints explicitly. By using both trust-region strategy and interior backing line search technique, each iteration switches to backtracking step generated by the trust-region subproblem and satisfies strict interior point feasibility by line search backtracking technique. Under reasonable conditions, the global convergence and fast local convergence rate of the proposed algorithm are established. The results of numerical experiments are reported to show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a computational method for numerical solution of a class of integro-differential equations with a weakly singular kernel of fractional order which is based on Cos and Sin (CAS) wavelets and block pulse functions is introduced. Approximation of the arbitrary order weakly singular integral is also obtained. The fractional integro-differential equations with weakly singular kernel are transformed into a system of algebraic equations by using the operational matrix of fractional integration of CAS wavelets. The error analysis of CAS wavelets is given. Finally, the results of some numerical examples support the validity and applicability of the approach.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we consider the problem of capacitated covering with unit balls. In this problem, a set of weighted points in a metric space is given, and we want to cover them with a minimum number of the unit balls of that metric space provided that the total weight assigned to each unit ball is at most one. The problem is NP-hard as it generalizes the covering-with-unit-balls problem. We consider the problem in two cases: (1) the weight of each point can be split among several unit balls and (2) the unsplittable case. In the latter case, the problem is a generalization of the bin-packing problem even when , and thus it is not approximable under 1.5, unless P=NP. We design a polynomial-time approximation scheme (PTAS) for the splittable case when is a fixed constant and is an metric. This also results in a PTAS for the unsplittable case when all the points have the same weight. We also analyse several natural algorithms for this problem and prove that they achieve constant approximation factors.

    ABSTRACT: The Intellects-Masses Optimizer (IMO) is a new variant of cultural algorithm, which is used to solve continuous numerical optimization problems. The proposed method divides its population into two sub-populations, one that contains the fittest individuals (called the intellects) and the other sub-population, which includes the rest of the individuals in the population (called the masses). The two sub-populations evolve in parallel and influence each other. IMO is a simple, easy to code approach that has few, easy to tune parameters. The performance of IMO is investigated on 25 problems; five of them are real-world engineering problems and six high-dimensional problems. IMO is compared with 6 other state-of-the-art swarm intelligence approaches on the 25 problems. The results show that IMO generally outperforms the other approaches.

    ABSTRACT: Burgers’ equation can model several physical phenomena. In the first part of this work, we derive a three-level linearized difference scheme for Burgers’ equation, which is then proved to be energy conservative, unique solvable and unconditionally convergent in the maximum norm by the energy method combining with the inductive method. In the second part of the work, we prove the L ∞ unconditional convergence of a two-level linearized difference scheme for Burgers’ equation proposed by Sheng [A new difference scheme for Burgers equation, J. Jiangsu Normal Univ. 30 (2012), pp. 39–43], which was proved previously conditionally convergent.

    ABSTRACT: Circles are one of the basic drawing primitives for computers and while the naive way of setting up an equation for drawing circles is simple, implementing it in an efficient way using integer arithmetic has resulted in quite a few different algorithms. We present a short chronological overview of the most important publications of such digital circle generation algorithms. Bresenham is often assumed to have invented the first all integer circle algorithm. However, there were other algorithms published before his first official publication, which did not use floating point operations. Furthermore, we present both a 4 and an 8-connected all integer algorithm. Both of them proceed without any multiplication, using just one addition per iteration to compute the decision variable, which makes them more efficient than previously published algorithms.

    ABSTRACT: A vertex-colored graph G is said to be rainbow vertex-connected if every two vertices of G are connected by a path whose internal vertices have distinct colors, such a path is called a rainbow path. The rainbow vertex-connection number of a connected graph G, denoted by rvc(G), is the smallest number of colors that are needed in order to make G rainbow vertex-connected. In this paper, we study the rainbow vertex-connection number on the lexicographical, strong, Cartesian and direct product and present several upper bounds for these products of graphs. The rainbow vertex-connection number of some product networks are also investigated in this paper.
