A coarse-grained Distributed Constraint Satisfaction Problem (DisCSP) consists of several loosely connected constraint satisfaction subproblems, each assigned to an individual agent. We present Multi-Hyb, a two-phase concurrent hybrid approach for so... Read More about A hybrid approach to solving coarse-grained DisCSPs..

3D face recognition is attracting more attention due to the recent development in 3D facial data acquisition techniques. It is strongly believed that 3D Face recognition systems could overcome the inherent problems of 2D face recognition such as faci...

This paper aims to propose a method for geometric design, modelling and shape manipulation using minimum input design parameters. Here, we address the method for the construction of 3D geometry based on the use of Elliptic Partial Differential Equati...

A coarse-grained Distributed Constraint Satisfaction Problem (DisCSP) is a constraint problem where several agents, each responsible for solving one part (a complex local problem), cooperate to determine an overall solution. Thus, agents solve the ov... Read More about Multi-Hyb: a hybrid algorithm for solving DisCSPs with complex local problems..

An emerging topic in Quantuam Interaction is the use of lexical semantic spaces, as Hilbert spaces, to capture the meaning of words. There has been some initial evidence that the phenomenon of quantum entanglement exists in a semantic space and can p...
