    In this work, several topology generation procedures have been implemented on architectural surfaces combined with urban forms. Delaunay triangulation, Voronoi diagrams and the recently proposed [1, 2, 3] Voronax diagram, ...

  • Nature of coupling in nonconservative lumped parameter systems 

    Bellos, John; Inman, Daniel (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astrnautics, 1989)
    Although the response of undamped or at least proportionally damped linear systems can be determined easily by modal analysis, the prediction of the response of nonproportionally damped linear systems requires either more ...

  • Near-Perfect Codes for Binary-Coded Radix-r Arithmetic Units 

    Gaitanis, N.; Halatsis, Constantin (IEEE, 1983-05)
    This paper considers AN arithmetic codes with radix r > 2 and binary-coded digits (BCr) using weights. The error-correcting capability of the AN codes is single bit within any BCr digit, that is, the corrected errors are ...

  • Never say dye: New roles for an old fluorochrome 

    Fotopoulos, Vasileios (Landes Bioscience, 2012)
    Recent years have seen a remarkable increase in the number of publications dealing with the application of epifluorescence microscopy in cell biology. This can be widely attributed to the development of state-of-the-art ...

  • A New Abstract Prolog Instruction Set 

    Vlahavas, J.; Halatsis, Constantin (Expert systems and their applications, 1987-05)
    This paper presents a reduced instruction set for a Prolog machine called RPM. The objective of our design was a RICS machine architecture with high performance. We describe the machine architecture in terms of the machine ...

  • A New Approach to Statistical Forecasting 

    Makridakis, Spyros (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1987-06)
    Available approaches to statistical forecasting suffer from several deficiencies (problems) that render their predictions for real-world economic/business series inappropriate. In this paper I illustrate such deficiencies, ...

  • A New Design Method for m-out-of-n Totally Self-Checking Checkers 

    Gaitanis, Nikolaos; Halatsis, Constantin (IEEE, 1983-03)
    The paper presents a new method for designing efficient TSC checkers for m-out-of n codes. The method is based on the partitioning of the input code variables into an arbitrary number of r classes. The paper establishes ...

  • A New Double-Rank Realization of Sequential Machines 

    Halatsis, Constantin; Gaitanis, N. (IEEE, 1978-12)
    A new type of double-rank sequential circuit is presented in this paper. This new type, called Type 4, differs from its predecessor types in that it employs a Boolean memory as rank-1 memory instead of flip-flops. The ...

  • The New Economy and the Strategy of Greek Firms 

    Makridakis, Spyros (Hellenica, 2001)
    Greece and Greek firms are behind their counterparts in advanced countries. This paper discusses the situation of Greek firms and proposes various strategies to be able to more successfully compete in the emerging new economy.
