Biomass Properties and Prediction Tools for Vegetation Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fires 1.1 Overview Wildland fires are natural calamities that bring enormous environmental and economic damage worldwide and some of them cause human death. Achieving effective fire fighting is associated with the possibilities of predicting the characteristics of fire behaviour. Special attention needs to be drawn to meteorological conditions and their effect on fire spread in a bed of vegetation.
Wildland fires are natural calamities that bring enormous environmental and economic damage worldwide
and some of them cause human death. Achieving effective fire fighting is associated with the possibilities
of predicting the characteristics of fire behaviour. Special attention needs to be drawn to meteorological
conditions and their effect on fire spread in a bed of vegetation. On the other hand, studying the effect of
forest fires on the environment is of equal significance for building the strategy and specific actions to be
undertaken in the fire fighting process.

The lake ecosystem of Hanoi has a very important role. However, the water quality in the lakes of Hanoi is declining; they're more and more polluted. Among that, eutrophication is the most popular one. Therefore, the assessment and prediction of eutrophication is necessary. One of the effective tools for assessing and predicting eutrophycation is the use of mathematical models. In this paper, we used the Vollenweider model, empirical watershed model and Jorgensen model to determine the eutrophycation of Bay Mau Lake by phosphorous concentration in the lake water.
Reading is known to be an essential task in language learning, but ﬁnding the appropriate text for every learner is far from easy. In this context, automatic procedures can support the teacher’s work. Some tools exist for English, but at present there are none for French as a foreign language (FFL). In this paper, we present an original approach to assessing the readability of FFL texts using NLP techniques and extracts from FFL textbooks as our corpus. Two logistic regression models based on lexical and grammatical features are explored and give quite good predictions on new texts. ...
One of the major problems when translating from Japanese into a European language such as German or English is to determine definiteness of noun phrases in order to choose the correct determiner in the target language. Even though in Japanese, noun phrase reference is said to depend in large parts on the discourse context, we show that in many cases there also exist linguistic markers for definiteness.
Portal development projects have become the centerpiece of IT acquisition and development strategy
for many organizations. Enterprise integration and Web application developers predictably
groan when they hear the word “portal”—nightmares of proprietary APIs, oversold features, and
shoddy tool integrations. The authors of this book have been involved in over a dozen production
portal efforts over the last several years. In that time, we have dealt with numerous products and
frameworks, including some in-house frameworks based on servlets and JSPs.
The evolution of solid-state circuit technology has a long history within a relatively

solid-state circuit technology continuously evolves via breakthroughs and improvements
every year. This book is devoted to review and present novel approaches for some of the
main issues involved in this exciting and vigorous technology....
Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) has been an important research area in
last decade. When the robot has become increasingly more flexible, they were
useful in a variety of robot and human applications are expected in
teract very closely. Therefore becomes necessary to understand the nature
human-computer interaction to information tools and techniques can be developed to
allows humans and robots to work together seamlessly, strong and natural.
Research on human-machine interaction are diverse and include a variety of topics....
Sound emission studies have been launched in the early 1950s. The technology
before the mid-1960s, mainly in electronics engineering and materials, enabling
rapid development of the method. Currently technical pronounced
applied to a number of research areas, both in civil and industrial use.

In recent years, completion of the sequencing of the human genome as well as the
genomes of dozens of other organisms and subsequent development of tools for comprehensive
analysis of other cellular constituents have revolutionized biology. These new
technologies, referred to broadly as “genomics,” have integrated biologic sciences with
information sciences and engineering.
The water quality of lakes in Hanoi has been declining. In that, eutrophycation is the most popular. One of the effective tools for its accessing and predicting is the use of mathematical models. This paper used the Vollenweider model, Empirical watershed model and Jorgensen model to determine the eutrophycation of West Lake by Phosphorous concentration in the lake water. The results given by the models show that the ability of Eutrophication of West Lake is very high, because the content of Phosphorous in the lake exceed allowable value of standard (0.03mg/l) many times.
The purpose of this study is to examine a current land development decision
within a one-shot decision framework. The main contributions of this study
are as follows. A private real estate investment decision model is proposed
within a one-shot decision framework, which is an innovative study on
analyzing real estate investment problems from an economic viewpoint by
using tools from the possibility theory. The analysis in this paper
demonstrates the relation between the amount of uncertainty and the
investment scale for different types of personal investors.
The Semantic Web  holds out a different vision, that of information laid bare so that it
can be collected, manipulated, and annotated independent of its location or presentation format-
ting. While the Semantic Web promises much more effective access to information, it has faced
a chicken-and-egg problem getting off the ground. Without substantial quantities of data avail-
able in Semantic Web form, users cannot beneﬁt from tools that work directly with information
rather than pages, and Semantic Web-based software agents have little data to show their useful-
A full decade has passed since the publication of the first edition of The LATEX
Companion—a decade during which some people prophesied the demise of TEX
and LaTEX and predicted that other software would take over the world. There have
been a great many changes indeed, but neither prediction has come to pass: TEX
has not vanished and the interest in LaTEX has not declined, although the approach
to both has gradually changed over time.
A simple model of earnings, cash flows and accruals is developed by assuming a random walk sales process, variable and fixed costs, accounts receivable and payable, and inventory and applying the accounting process. The model implies earnings better predicts future operating cash flows than does current operating cash flows and the difference varies with the operating cash cycle. Also, the model is used to predict serial and crosscorrelations of each firm's series. The implications and predictions are tested on a 1337 firm sample over 1963-1992.
The business of government is complex. What matters to the public about performance of government
cannot meaningfully captured in one, or even a dozen performance measures. Given the sophisticated
demands for information from a wide range of stakeholders, including Parliament, government must
respond in kind with world-class performance measurement and reporting systems.
Performance information is a cornerstone of our commitment to modernise government.
