## Relationships between cellular automata model parameters and their physical counterparts

When constructing a Cellular Automata (CA) model of a natural process one meets a problem of determining scaling relations, i.e. the quantitative relationships between the CA dimensionless parameters and corresponding values characterizing the prototype process given in terms of a physical system of units. The problem has no general solution....

## FlexyFace — a portable solution for application-independent interface implementation

In this paper, we propose an approach to constructing the user interface to be based on the ontological description. Its advantages are pondered. The main value using the ontology is the reduced complexity and development time as well as the increased quality of resulting implementation. The requirements to a system...

## Averaging methods with isotropy conservation in the FHP-GP CA model

This paper presents the results of a research into the anisotropy factor introduced by the hexagonal structure of a cellular array in a discrete model of a gas-powder flow with an integer alphabet and a hexagonal neighborhood structure at the stage of calculating the average values of pressure and flow...

## Efficient parallel implementation of the Ramalingam decremental algorithm for updating the all-pairs shortest paths

The paper proposes an efficient parallel implementation of the Ramalingam algorithm for the dynamic update of the all-pairs shortest paths of a directed weighted graph after deleting an edge. To this end, a model of associative parallel systems with vertical data processing (the STAR-machine) is used. With this model, the...

## Optimization of the Particle-In-Cell method for general-purpose computers

Presented in this paper are the software techniques to improve the performance of the Particle-in-Cell method for general-purpose computers equipped with processors like Intel Xeon/Nehalem or AMD Phenom. The software techniques include particle storing in cells in either fixed size array or list, field values kept together in one array....

## Tracking objects by the Bayesian network

An algorithm for tracking objects in a videostream based on the use of a hierarchical Bayesian network is proposed. A specific feature of the algorithm proposed is the use of multi-dimensional scaling, which made possible to significantly reduce the network training time. The algorithm is resistant to temporary monitored object...

## An approach to the utility network design

In this study, the problem of the utility network design is treated by the hypernet approach according to the compatibility of different types of resources with allowance for their laying in the same track. Also, we study the reliability aspect of the designed utility network for obtaining the optimal laying...
