.: What is the Permanent
Procedure for additional Journal publication for a very small number of
HighQuality Papers presented in the WSEAS Conferences in Dallas (after the
recommnedation of Chairmen).
April 30, 2007
Dear Authors of papers that were presented in the WSEAS Conferences in Dallas,
Texas, USA
We have started now the evaluation of extended versions of your papers for
possible inclusion in WSEAS journals after new review.
INTRODUCTION: You know that our goal is to maintain very strong
international journals, to increase the impact of our beloved WSEAS
Transactions, really top journals as they really are. To this end, we need only
high quality papers, breakthrough works of archival value, i.e. papers that are
well written from any point of view, completed studies (with their numerical
examples or experiments that must be compared with the previous results in the
literature), excellent english and of course correct WSEAS format. The papers
also must be substantially extended version of the paper that was presented in
the conference (with more than 40% new material). We need papers that will
attract the attention of other scholars citing them increasing our impact. In
the next few years, the WSEAS transactions must be in every academic library, in
every corner of the earth. To this end, we need your high quality contribution.
HOW TO PROCEED:
a) Check very carefully if your idea is really important, breakthrough in your
field and can appear in a Journal of the quality and the level of the WSEAS
Transactions. If you doubt, do not send it so easily. Your paper must not be
only a good idea. It must be a complete study with theoretical background,
complete bibliographical references; without grammatical and syntactical errors.
For theoretical works: full comparison with previous published papers is
necessary. We need numerical examples, applicability of the method,
originality, novelty and directions for future research. For experimental or
computational works: full comparison with previous published papers is
necessary. We need real experiments with the necessary
documentation, while for computational work, we need full benchmarks. Of course
along discussions for the applicability of the method, originality, novelty and
directions for future research.
b) Complete the extended version of your paper until June 30 and send it until
June 30, by email to me
You must receive an email notification from us. Use only the email address:
selected_papers_texas (AT) worldses.org, replace (AT) with @
c) If your extended version fulfills the paragraph a), then we will send it to 3
independent Reviewers outside
your country. If not, we are entitled to reject it from this early stage
informing you properly. The positive answer of the 3 reviewers is necessary
(attention: 2 yes and 1 no implies NO, i.e. rejection).
d) We will collect the reviewers' remarks and will send them again to you for
acceptance/ acceptance after minor revision / acceptance after major revision /
rejection
e) Possibly new rounds of review will be needed.
f) No additional fee is needed in case of acceptance.
After all this procedure, the accepted papers that come from WSEAS Conferences
in Texas will be published in
* WSEAS Transactions on MATHEMATICS
* WSEAS Transactions on COMPUTERS
* WSEAS Transactions on SIGNAL PROCESSING
* WSEAS Transactions on COMMUNICATIONS
IF: you want another journal, or if you miss the deadline of June 30, or if your
paper was not presented in the WSEAS Conferences, THEN: you can upload it quite
independently as regular paper from the WSEAS Site for the Journals:
http://www.worldses.org/journals/index.html
The final list of the papers must have the approval of an Associate Editor, 3
Reviewers, and of course the EditorinChief of the particular Journal. i.e. 5
persons: 3 Reviewers, Guest Editor and the EditorinChief of the particular
Journal. We hope to help to to maintain the WSEAS Transactions, top journals

Fluctuation Expansion at the Horizon as a new and Efficient Tool for Integration
and ODE and PDE Solving

Abstract:
The univariate integration of a function over a closed interval can be realized
through various analytical or numerical methods. Almost all numerical methods
assume the continuity and the smoothness of the function under consideration and
tries to use somehow a polynomial approximation. They fail if the function has
nonintegrable singularity in the integration interval. In the case of integrable
singularities in the interval the numerical methods may become slowly
converging. They may be negatively affected even from the singularities outside
the integration domain. Hence, to remove or to decrease these types of negative
effects, one can use a weight function which somehow reflects and compensates
the singular nature of the function to be integrated.
Fluctuation expansion uses sharply localized weight functions representable by
Dirac's delta function which picks the value of a function at a given point.
Dirac’s delta function can be approximated by appropriately defined projection
operator kernels. Fluctuation expansion is based on these types of
approximations. It expands and approximates the weight function in this way and
produces a Gauss quadrature like approximation formula with universal weight
coefficients which are different for different weights. The accuracy can be
controlled by monitoring the number of the terms in expansion of weight in terms
of projection operator kernels.
Fluctuation expansion can also be applied to multivariate integration. The basic
philosophy remains same in this case. Only difference is the multivariance in
various entities and as long as sufficient care is paid for possible
complications the efficiency is again powerful and the method remains promising.
All linear partial differential equations describing probabilistic events can be
handled by using fluctuation expansion. This is because of the fact that the
existence of probability in the event description implies the utilization of the
expectation values like in quantum mechanics or nonequilibrium statistical
mechanics via Liuouville equation. If the expectation values are considered
instead of the probability describing entities then the multivariate integrals
in the representations of expectation values can be approximated by using the
fluctuation expansion.
Incomplete
inventory information  the next challenge

Abstract:
The purpose of this lecture is to review recent developments in the analysis of
partially observed optimal control problems that arise in the management of
inventory systems.
Inventory control is one of the most important topics in management
science/operations research. A systematic analysis of inventory problems began
with the development of the classical EOQ formula of Harris in 1913. Since then,
an enormous amount of literature has accumulated on inventory control problems.
One of the critical assumptions in this vast literature has been that the
current level of inventory is fully observed. Some of the most celebrated
results such as optimality of basestock or (s,S) policies have been obtained
under the assumption of full observation. Yet it is often the case in practice
that the inventory level is only partially observed. Most of the wellknown
inventory policies are not only nonoptimal, but are also not applicable in the
partial observation environment.
The reasons for partial observation of the current inventory level are many.
Inventory records or cash register information differ from actual inventory
because of a variety of factors including transaction errors, theft, spoilage,
misplacement, unobserved lost demands, and information delays. As a result, what
are usually observed are some events or surrogate measures, called signals,
related to the inventory level. At best, these relationships may provide only
the distribution of current inventory levels.
In the best case, therefore, the relevant state in the inventory control
problems is not the current inventory level, but rather its distribution given
the observed signals. Thus, the analysis for finding optimal production or
ordering policies takes place generally in the space of infinitedimensional
probability distributions.
Social Aspect
CoffeeBreaks: The WSEAS Organizing Committee offered 6 very rich
coffeebreaks. Each coffeebreaks were composed by filter coffee, decaf. coffee,
tea, local sweets, biscuits, freshly baked pastries. During the CoffeeBreaks
the attendees had several opportunities for to interchange ideas and proposals
for common projects and collaboration.
Banquet: The Conference Banquet took place inside the hotel.
The whole event was really impressive. All the participants had a very good time
and enjoyed themselves very much.
Several postconference excursions took place.
