The purpose of this study was to apply the optimization method incorporating artificial neural network (ANN) using pH-independent release of weakly basic drug, carvedilol from HPMC-based matrix formulation. Because of weakly basic nature of carvedilol, drug shows pH-dependent solubility. The enteric polymer EUDRAGIT L100 was added formulations to overcome pH-dependent solubility of carvedilol. Effects of the Hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose (HPMC) K4M and EUDRAGIT L100 amount on drug release were investigated. For this purpose 13 kinds of formulations were prepared at three different levels of each variables. The optimization of the formulation was evaluated by using ANN method. Two formulation parameters, the amounts of HPMC K4M and Eudragit L100 at three levels (-1, 0, 1) were selected as independent/input variables. In-vitro dissolution sampling times at twelve different time points were selected as dependent/output variables. By using experimental dissolution results and amount of HPMC K4M and EUDRAGIT L100, percentage of dissolved carvedilol was predicted by ANN. Similarity factor (f(2)) between predicted and experimentally observed profile was calculated and f(2) value was found 76.33. This value showed that there was no difference between predicted and experimentally observed drug release profile. As a result of these experiments, it was found that ANNs can be successfully used to optimize controlled release drug delivery systems.

Exponential stability of periodic solutions of recurrent neural networks with functional dependence on piecewise constant argument
Akhmet, Marat; Cengiz, Nur (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2018-01-01)
In this study, we develop a model of recurrent neural networks with functional dependence on piecewise constant argument of generalized type. Using the theoretical results obtained for functional differential equations with piecewise constant argument, we investigate conditions for existence and uniqueness of solutions, bounded solutions, and exponential stability of periodic solutions. We provide conditions based on the parameters of the model.
Multi-time-scale input approaches for hourly-scale rainfall-runoff modeling based on recurrent neural networks
Ishida, Kei; Kiyama, Masato; Ercan, Ali; Amagasaki, Motoki; Tu, Tongbi (2021-11-01)
This study proposes two effective approaches to reduce the required computational time of the training process for time-series modeling through a recurrent neural network (RNN) using multi-time-scale time-series data as input. One approach provides coarse and fine temporal resolutions of the input time-series data to RNN in parallel. The other concatenates the coarse and fine temporal resolutions of the input time-series data over time before considering them as the input to RNN. In both approaches, first, ...
An experimental study on Power Amplifier linearisation by artificial neural networks Yapay Sinir Aǧlari ile Güç Yükselteç Doǧrusalląstirma Amaçli Deneysel Bir Çalisma

This paper represents an experimental study on the linearisation of Power Amplifiers especially on high output power regions by utilizing an artificial neural network structure and open-loop training method. For the same in-band output power, 9dB EVM and 6dB ACLR improvement has been observed on hardware by feeding the proposed digital predistortion signal (DPD) to the PA under test.
IMPULSIVE SICNNS WITH CHAOTIC POSTSYNAPTIC CURRENTS
Fen, Mehmet Onur; Akhmet, Marat (2016-06-01)
In the present study, we investigate the dynamics of shunting inhibitory cellular neural networks (SICNNs) with impulsive effects. We give a mathematical description of the chaos for the multidimensional dynamics of impulsive SICNNs, and prove its existence rigorously by taking advantage of the external inputs. The Li-Yorke definition of chaos is used in our theoretical discussions. In the considered model, the impacts satisfy the cell and shunting principles. This enriches the applications of SICNNs and ma...
Marginalized transition random effect models for multivariate longitudinal binary data
İlk Dağ, Özlem (Wiley, 2007-03-01)
Generalized linear models with random effects and/or serial dependence are commonly used to analyze longitudinal data. However, the computation and interpretation of marginal covariate effects can be difficult. This led Heagerty (1999, 2002) to propose models for longitudinal binary data in which a logistic regression is first used to explain the average marginal response. The model is then completed by introducing a conditional regression that allows for the longitudinal, within-subject, dependence, either...
