A probabilistic approach to multi criteria sorting problem
Buğdacı, Aslı Gül; Köksalan, Murat; Department of Industrial Engineering (2009)
We aim to classify alternatives evaluated in multiple criteria among preference ordered classes assuming an underlying additive utility function. We develop a probabilistic classification method by calculating the probability of an alternative being in each class. We assign alternatives to classes based on threshold probabilities. We require the decision maker to place an alternative to a class when no alternatives satisfy the required thresholds. We find new probabilities for unassigned alternatives in the...
A Geometrical Approach to Forecast Burst-time of Stock Market Bubbles
Kürüm, Efsun; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; İyigün, Cem (null; 2017-01-21)
In order to avoid destructive results of financial bubbles that affect the entire economy, it is important to develop an early-warning signaling. By using optimization-supported tools, we introduce a new method for an early-warning signaling, which approaches the bubble concept geometrically by determining and evaluating ellipsoids. We generate a volume-based index via minimum-volume covering ellipsoid clustering method, and to visualize these ellipsoids, we utilize Radon transform from the theory of the In...
A hypercomputational approach to the agent causation theory of free will
Mersin, Serhan; Sayan, Erdinç; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2006)
Hypercomputation, which is the general concept embracing all machinery capable of carrying out more tasks than Turing Machines and beyond the Turing Limit, has implications for various fields including mathematics, physics, computer science and philosophy. Regarding its philosophical aspects, it is necessary to reveal the position of hypercomputation relative to the classical computational theory of mind in order to clarify and broaden the scope of hypercomputation so that it encompasses some phenomena whic...
A Bayesian approach to inclusion and performance analysis of using extra information in bioelectric inverse problems
Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim; Macleod, Robert S. (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Signa Processing Society (IEEE); 2003-12-16)
Due to attenuation and spatial smoothing that occurs in the conducting media, the bioelectric inverse problem of estimating sources from remote measurements is ill-posed and solution requires regularization. Recent studies showed that employing Bayesian methods could help increase accuracy. The basic limitations are the availability of good a priori information about the solution, and the lack of a "good" error metric. In this paper, we employ Bayesian methods, and present the mathematical framework for inc...
A theoretical approach for Pareto-Zipf law
Tuncay, Çağlar (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2008-08-01)
We suggest an analytical approach for the Pareto-Zipf law, where we assume random multiplicative noise and fragmentation processes for the growth of the number of citizens of each city and the number of the cities, respectively.
