A Content-Boosted Collaborative Filtering Approach for Movie Recommendation Based on Local and Global Similarity and Missing Data Prediction
Özbal, Gozde; Karaman, Hilal; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2011-09-01)
Most traditional recommender systems lack accuracy in the case where data used in the recommendation process is sparse. This study addresses the sparsity problem and aims to get rid of it by means of a content-boosted collaborative filtering approach applied to a web-based movie recommendation system. The main motivation is to investigate whether further success can be obtained by combining 'local and global user similarity' and 'effective missing data prediction' approaches, which were previously introduce...
A Depth-optimal Low-complexity Distributed Wireless Multicast Algorithm
Akyurek, A. Sinan; Uysal, Elif (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2011-06-01)
This paper presents a wireless multicast tree construction algorithm, SWIM (Source-initiated WIreless Multicast). SWIM constructs a tree on which each multicast destination has the minimum possible depth (number of hops from the nearest source). It is proved that SWIM is fully distributed, with a worst case complexity upper-bounded by O(N-3), and an empirically found average complexity of only O(N-2). SWIM forms one shared tree from source(s) to the multicast destinations; yet, as a by-product, it creates a...
A unifying grid approach for solving potential flows applicable to structured and unstructured grid configurations
Cete, A. Ruhsen; Yuekselen, M. Adil; Kaynak, Uenver (Elsevier BV, 2008-01-01)
In this study, an efficient numerical method is proposed for unifying the structured and unstructured grid approaches for solving the potential flows. The new method, named as the "alternating cell directions implicit - ACDI", solves for the structured and unstructured grid configurations equally well. The new method in effect applies a line implicit method similar to the Line Gauss Seidel scheme for complex unstructured grids including mixed type quadrilateral and triangle cells. To this end, designated al...
On-demand conversation customization for services in large smart environments
Elgedawy, I. (IBM, 2011-01-01)
Services in large smart environments, as defined in this paper, are "aware" of their users' contexts and goals and are able to automatically interact with one another in order to achieve these goals. Unfortunately, interactions between services (i.e., service conversations) are not necessarily compatible, as services could have different interfaces (i.e., signature incompatibilities), as well as different logic for message ordering (i.e., protocol incompatibilities). Such conversation incompatibilities crea...
A FEM approach to biomagnetic fluid flow in multiple stenosed channels
Turk, O.; Bozkaya, Canan; Tezer, Münevver (Elsevier BV, 2014-06-25)
The unsteady and laminar biomagnetic fluid flow of a viscous, incompressible, Newtonian and electrically conducting fluid is numerically investigated. Specifically, the two-dimensional flow driven in an infinite channel containing multiple stenosis and subject to a spatially varying external magnetic field is considered. The numerical method is based on the use of finite element method (FEM) in spatial discretization and unconditionally stable backward finite difference scheme for the time integration, for ...
