To evaluate the prediction capabilities of the Boolean model, four tests were conducted (each one composed of 100 simulations).
The three previously described sets of images (manually acquired cluster images, vine images acquired manually, and vine images captured on-the-go) were analysed using similar approaches: first the clusters were segmented, then the Boolean model was applied to estimate berry number.
The SDF of the initial burning surface will be used in LSM evolution, and that of the entire model will be used to accelerate the Boolean operation (see Section 3.3).
The CGAL library provides robust Boolean algorithms on triangular meshes.
Boolean networks are the least detailed mathematical models of causally interacting entities.
Thus the new cryptographic property of Boolean functions-algebraic immunity (AI), the minimum algebraic degree of annihilators of f or f + 1, was introduced by Meier et al.
During the last decade, researchers carried out many studies of reconstruction of gene regulatory networks using Boolean network modeling [18,53], which reflects the generic coarse-grained properties of large genetic network.
(1) We propose a scheme to solve the problem of the boolean adjacent vertex search over encrypted graph data in cloud computing.
This figure 4 shows the area was either suitable for landfilling or not in the form of Boolean values (1 and 0).
PubMed searches can be refined by using multiple search terms connected by Boolean operators: AND, OR, and NOT.
More specifically, we introduce the notions of n-fold (implicative, positive implicative, Boolean, fantastic, normal, integral, and involutive) filters and n-fold Boolean filters of the second kind in residuated lattices, notions that naturally generalize the corresponding ones previously studied in BL-algebras.
In order to deal with such a system, it is important to consider a simple model, and various models such as Bayesian networks, Boolean networks (BNs) [3], hybrid systems (piecewise affine models), and Petri nets have been developed so far (see, e.g., [4] for further details).
