© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.This paper introduces a new method for the session construction problem, which is the first main step of the Web usage mining process. The proposed method defines user sessions as a set of navigation paths in the Web graph and produces a complete set of all possible maximal paths. Our new method is capable of generating navigation paths which cannot be extracted by using previous greedy approaches. Through experiments performed on real data, it is shown that when our new technique is used, it outperforms previous approaches in Web usage mining applications such as next-page prediction. Our analysis on Web user sessions exposes an important observation: Web users sessions contain navigation graphs that has small number of nodes where users branch out their navigation into multiple paths.

Hydromechanical Behavior of a Tuff/Bentonite Mixture Treated with Cement
Demdoum, Abdellah; Daheur, Elhadj Guesmia; Loualbia, Hamza; Bounouara, Zahra; Ghembaza, Moulay Smaine; Akgün, Haluk (2022-01-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.Sandy soil-clay mixtures are commonly used as a liner/barrier material in various engineering applications, such as construction of hydraulic and waste containment. In this study, the hydromechanical characteristics of tuff-bentonite and tuff-bentonite/cement mixtures are investigated to propose a local barrier material. A series of free swelling, one-dimensional consolidation and falling head permeability tests for hydrauli...
ABS-Fly Ash Composite Filaments for Fused Deposition Modeling
Alduais, Abdullah; Kazanç Özerinç, Feyza; Bayram, Göknur; Özerinç, Sezer (2022-01-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is one of the most widely used additive manufacturing techniques for the fabrication of polymeric parts. Earlier applications of FDM mostly utilized pure polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). However, there has recently been an increasing demand for composite FDM filaments to obtain superior mechanical and physical properties. Fly ash (FA), a waste o...
Tensionless strings and Killing(-Yano) tensors
Lindström, Ulf; Sarıoğlu, Bahtiyar Özgür (2022-06-10)
© 2022 The Author(s)We construct invariants for bosonic and spinning tensionless (null) strings in backgrounds that carry Killing tensors or Killing-Yano tensors of mixed type. This is facilitated by the close relation of these strings to point particles. We apply the construction to the Minkowski and to the Kerr-Newman backgrounds.
Efficient exascale discretizations: High-order finite element methods
Kolev, Tzanio; et. al. (2021-01-01)
© The Author(s) 2021.Efficient exploitation of exascale architectures requires rethinking of the numerical algorithms used in many large-scale applications. These architectures favor algorithms that expose ultra fine-grain parallelism and maximize the ratio of floating point operations to energy intensive data movement. One of the few viable approaches to achieve high efficiency in the area of PDE discretizations on unstructured grids is to use matrix-free/partially assembled high-order finite element metho...
Phyto-mediated photocatalysis: a critical review of in-depth base to reactive radical generation for erythromycin degradation
Ashraf, Aniqa; Liu, Guijian; Yousaf, Balal; Arif, Muhammad; Ahmed, Rafay; Rashid, Audil; Riaz, Luqman; Rashid, Muhammad Saqib (2022-05-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature.Erythromycin (ERY), designated as a risk-prioritized macrolide antibiotic on the 2015 European Union watch list, is the third most commonly used antibiotic, most likely due to its ability to inhibit the protein. ERY has revealed record-high aquatic concentrations threatening the entire ecosystem and hence demands priority remedial measures. The inefficiency of various conventional ERY degradation methodol...
