Minimization of Monotonically Levelable Higher Order MRF Energies via Graph Cuts
Karci, Mehmet Haydar; Demirekler, Mübeccel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-11-01)
A feature of minimizing images of submodular binary Markov random field (MRF) energies is introduced. Using this novel feature, the collection of minimizing images of levels of higher order, monotonically levelable multilabel MRF energies is shown to constitute a monotone collection. This implies that these minimizing binary images can be combined to give minimizing images of the multilabel MRF energies. Thanks to the graph cuts framework, the mentioned class of binary MRF energies is known to be minimized ...

Minimization of Transmission Duration of Data Packets over an Energy Harvesting Fading Channel
Ozcelik, F. Mehmet; Uctu, Goksel; Uysal, Elif (2012-12-01)
The offline problem of transmission completion time minimization for an energy harvesting transmitter under fading is extended to allow packet arrivals during transmission. A method for computing an optimal power and rate allocation (i.e., an optimal offline schedule) is developed and studied.
Minimizing the number of tool switching instants in Flexible Manufacturing Systems
Konak, Abdullah; Kulturel-Konak, Sadan; Azizoğlu, Meral (Elsevier BV, 2008-12-01)
In this study, we address a part-type sequencing and tool switching problem arising in Flexible Manufacturing Systems. We consider the single machine problem of minimizing the number of tool switching instants. We propose two tabu search approaches to find high-quality solutions. Our computational results reveal that both tabu search approaches produce optimal or near-optimal solutions in reasonable times.
Minimization of banded structure in spring steels by the optimization of continuous casting machine parameters
Akpınar, Mehmet; Kalkanlı, Ali; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2019)
Leaf springs are one of the important components of suspension systems especially of light and heavy commercial vehicles. The plate products produced by spring steel qualities such as 51CrV4, 55Cr3, and 52CrMoV4 are often preferred by the leaf spring manufacturers. In continuous casting steelmaking, the segregation of the alloying elements such as C, Mn, Si into inter-dendritic regions during solidification causes different chemical composition in these regions compared to others. Depending on the chemical ...
