Barriers faced by international students abroad describe the recent growth of international students studying abroad and the challenges of these students while studying abroad. The advantages of studying abroad are countless. Study abroad programs is one of the best practices of modern times, when there are simmering tensions and conflict situation between many countries and regions around the globe. On an individual level, exposure to a totally different system of living makes you delve deep into your own choices, aims and ambitions. It is in fact a process of self-discovery. It creates a global personality out of you, with a deep respect for other cultures, and a greater understanding and appreciation of your own culture and way of living.Studying abroad make student come across people and places who are totally strangers, but turn to be very good friends by the time the course is completed. You begin to appreciate different lifestyles and develop some really useful contacts abroad. Helping nature, better team work, knowing and respecting the manners and habits of self as well as other people, an enhanced problem solving ability.
For a long time the Italian peninsula has been an area of conquest for every type of foreign investment. This situation has also been mirrored in the energy sector, with the presence of strong foreign groups interested in conquering wide sectors of the inside market. Nevertheless this has not excluded the existence of Italian entrepreneurial groups that have operated autonomously and with good results both at home and abroad. Actually there are many cases of international collaboration in the energy sector with Italy as leader: both through the active presence of some experts or scientists in assets abroad and the sale of technology (products or brevets) that today we would define as made in Italy. This type of cooperation has originated since very remote times, but it was only after the First World War that the international exchanges, which Italy actively participated to, increased.
The focus area of this paper is on the assignment problem with budget constraints which is one of the application area of combinatorial optimization that operates on the domain of those optimization problems,in which the set of feasible solutions is discrete or can be reduced to discrete,and in which the goal is to find the best solution. It is particularly concerned with solving the unconstrained assignment problems with Hungarian algorithm and the constrained assignment problem by cutting plane or outer linearization algorithm for solving the Lagrangian dual problem in which, at each iteration,the function that approximates the dual function is optimized. The paper is divided in to two chapters. In the first chapter,the classical assignment problem,the problem of finding optimum (minimum or maximum) cost or profit assignment a set of workers or resources to jobs or activities to gather with its mathematical formulation,solution methods and special cases in assignment problems were considered. Under the second chapter, we have considered generalization of the classical assignment problem concerning resource(or budget) constraints, due to the variety of real life problems.
Congratulations! You just got a job as a reporter for The Club Penguin Times. You want to prove to the paper's editor in chief, Aunt Arctic, that you're a star reporter. But what assignment will you pick? Will it be the big ice hockey game, a party at the Iceberg, or the latest play at The Stage? It's up to you!
Assignment Problem is one of the first fundamental problems in the area of combinatorial optimization. Despite its historical roots, the problem has tremendous importance to date, due to its numerous real life applications in like facility location, personnel scheduling, job scheduling, production planning, project assignment, task assignment, time-tabling, vehicle routing, storage space allocation, etc. This book comprises some real life assignment and related problems involving imprecise cost/time parameters. In order to represent those imprecise parameters, interval numbers have been used here as this representation is the best among others. The associated problems have been solved using Genetic Algorithm efficiently. A salient feature of this book is that most of the algorithms have been written in a lucid manner with suitable examples using figures. This book should interest academicians, OR/GA practitioners and executives of different industries and business organizations.
A wireless mesh networks (WMNs) has emerged recently, WMN consist of two types of nodes mesh routers and mesh clients.WMN is dynamically self-organized and self-configured, with the nodes in the network automatically establishing and maintaining mesh connectivity among themselves. Channel assignment is a critical issue in WMN which is the mapping between the available channels and the radios at each node such that the network performance is optimized, and hence the focus of this work along with static channel assignment, multi-radio, multi-channel. Multi-radio MAC can potentially achieve higher network capacity than single-radio MAC. We design and implement a new agent (DSBCA) distributed channel assignment spanner base, the routing protocol Optimize the network performance considering the throughput, end-to-end delay, connectivity and the interference of our channel assignment algorithm. Base on the network simulations NS2.34 on Linux Fedora and our proposed channel assignment algorithm improved the throughput, minimal-connectivity preserving channel assignment algorithm.
The efficient management of Change Requests (CRs) is fundamental for successful software maintenance; however the assignment of CRs to developers is an expensive aspect in this regard, due to the time and expertise demanded. To overcome this, researchers have proposed automated approaches for CR assignment. Although these proposals present advances to this topic, they do not consider many factors inherent to the assignments, such as: developers’ workload, CRs severity, interpersonal relationships, and developers know-how. Actually, as we demonstrate in this work, CR assignment is a complex activity and automated approaches cannot rely on simplistic solutions. Ideally, it is necessary to consider and reason over contextual information in order to provide an effective automation. Beyond investigating all these aspects through an extensive systematic literature review, this work also proposes a context-aware architecture solution to semi-automated assignment of CRs.
