Modal relationships as stylistic features: Examples from Seljuk and Celtic patterns

Ozkar, Mine
Lefford, Nyssim
Styles in creative works cannot adequately be represented by categories based on formal features. Instead, styles could be studied in terms of modal relationships between the features to provide a basis for definitions of structure in generative models. Modal relationships are more flexible and robust under the dynamic conditions of the artist's creative process. This article illustrates through the examples of Seljuk and Celtic patterns how these modal relationships emerge, why they are essential to detailed descriptions of style, and how they might be identified.


A dynamic programming algorithm for tree-like weighted set packing problem
Gulek, Mehmet; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı (Elsevier BV, 2010-10-15)
In hierarchical organizations, hierarchical structures naturally correspond to nested sets. That is, we have a collection of sets such that for any two sets, either one of them is a subset of the other, or they are disjoint. In other words, a nested set system forms a hierarchy in the form of a tree structure. The task assignment problem on such hierarchical organizations is a real life problem. In this paper, we introduce the tree-like weighted set packing problem, which is a weighted set packing problem r...
Attribute-based variability in feature models
Karatas, Ahmet Serkan; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2016-06-01)
Extended feature models enable the expression of complex cross-tree constraints involving feature attributes. The inclusion of attributes in cross-tree relations not only enriches the constraints, but also engenders an extended type of variability that involves attributes. In this article, we elaborate on the effects of this new variability type on feature models. We start by analyzing the nature of the variability involving attributes and extend the definitions of the configuration and the product to suit ...
An access structure for similarity-based fuzzy databases
Yazıcı, Adnan (Elsevier BV, 1999-04-01)
A significant effort has been made in representing imprecise information in database models by using fuzzy set theory. However, the research directed toward access structures to handle fuzzy querying effectively is still at an immature stage. Fuzzy querying involves more complex processing than the ordinary querying does. Additionally, a larger number of tuples are possibly selected by fuzzy conditions in comparison to the crisp ones. It is obvious that the need for fast response time becomes very important...
Verification and transformation of complex and uncertain conceptual schemas
Yazıcı, Adnan (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 1997-12-01)
In database environment it is necessary to represent complex and uncertain information at conceptual level and then transform the conceptual schema into the logical one for ultimate implementation. It is also important to verify the conceptual schema with respect to the constraints imposed on the schema definition. In this paper we primarily focus on the verification and transformation of the conceptual schema For the purpose of verification of the conceptual schema represented by the ExIFO data model (the ...
"Keep it simple!": an eye-tracking study for exploring complexity and distinguishability of web pages for people with autism
Eraslan, Sukru; Yesilada, Yeliz; Yaneva, Victoria; Ha, Le An (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-02-03)
A major limitation of the international well-known standard web accessibility guidelines for people with cognitive disabilities is that they have not been empirically evaluated by using relevant user groups. Instead, they aim to anticipate issues that may arise following the diagnostic criteria. In this paper, we address this problem by empirically evaluating two of the most popular guidelines related to the visual complexity of web pages and the distinguishability of web-page elements. We conducted a compa...
