Genetic Based Optimization Models for Enhancing Multi- Document Text Summarization

Hilal H. Saleh; Nasreen J. Kadhim

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2015, Volume 33, Issue 8, Pages 1374-1387

Extractive multi-document text summarization – a summarization with the aim of removing redundant information in a document collectionwhile preserving its salient sentences – has recently enjoyed a large interest in proposing automatic models.This paper proposes two models for extractivemulti-document summarization based on genetic algorithm (GA). First, the problem is described and modeled as a discrete optimization problem with two candidate expressions and a specific fitness function is designed to effectively cope with each candidate. Then, a binary-encoded representation together with a heuristic mutation and a local repair operator are proposed to characterize the adopted GA. The semantic roles of similarity of sentence to sentence, sentence to center of document collection and center of summary to center of document collectionareexploited in the proposed model formulations. Experiments are applied to ten clusters from DUC2002 datasets (d061j through d070f) and compared with another state-of-the-art model.Results clarify the effectiveness of the proposed models. Moreover, the injection of several levels of text similarity in the model formulation shows a positive impact on enhancing the overall performance of the proposed GA.

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2015, Volume 33, Issue 8, Pages 1388-1401

In this work we prepared a porous Silicon (PS) layer by electrochemical etching (ECE) technique using different etching parameters including current density, anodization time and Hydrofluoric (HF) acid concentration. From the structural properties, we found that the full width half maximum of the observed spectrum from the XRD analysis has been increased and the peak position is slightly shifted to higher value. Also the etching parameters effect on the pore diameter and in turn on all chemical compositional and optical properties. As well as for electrical properties, the barrier height increases with pore diameter and the depletion width as well. From these result, it can tell that PS layer is better than c-Si for many applications.

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2015, Volume 33, Issue 8, Pages 1430-1444

The cubic spline interpolation method is used to design the developed curve. The method enables the designer to change the shape of the curve to the desired one without changing the original data points. That done by changing the value of the parameter ti depending on defined guide points and weighting factors that assigned secretly by the designer, so that not easily recreate the same design by anyone else even he knows the original data points that used to design the curve. These curves can be used in many fields such as banknote design, secure printed documents, the design of cars and airplanes structures, and Ornament.This paper modifies a mathematical technique to design complex curves, which are not easy to recreate. The results of this research had compared with other related methods since the improved models of this research is used the negative values of the guide to compute the parametric rather than using the only positive ones; the efficiency of the modified technique had proved by several comparative examples.

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2015, Volume 33, Issue 8, Pages 1483-1492

Finger spelling (or dactylology) is the representation of the letters of a writing system, and sometimes numeral systems, using only the hands. These manual alphabets (also known as finger alphabets or hand alphabets), have often been used in deaf education, and have subsequently been adopted as a distinct part of a number of sign languages; manual alphabets have had a number of additional applications — including use as ciphers, as mnemonics, and in silent religious settings. In this paper a proposed algorithm for translating English written text to fingerspell, we execute the algorithm using python programming language on windows eight operating system and produce good results about accuracy, speed, and the size of text to be translated; also in this paper we will discuss types of fingerspell and its applications.

Rana Hussein Naser Al-Qaysi

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2015, Volume 33, Issue 8, Pages 1530-1537

Fertilization need increased the concentration of Ca+ for egg activation. Inositol 1,4,5- trisphosphate (IP3), the second messenger of phospholipase Cγ, regulates the initial calcium rise from egg’s endoplasmic reticulum. However, FAK (focal adhesion kinase) is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase, which is known to create docking sites for signaling molecules that contain SH2 domains, including PLC. PLC participates in other signaling pathways besides fertilization and the role FAK may play in fertilization has not been determined. The goal of these experiments is to determine is the FAK is the link between Src and PLC, as well as, confirming or not confirming if Src directly or indirectly activates PLC.

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2015, Volume 33, Issue 8, Pages 1538-1548

In this paper, a new, fast and efficient selective block matching algorithm based on block discriminator values is suggested. The searching scheme consists of three stages: block discriminator values calculations, open full window then cascaded selection sub stages have been applied where each sub stage uses distinct block discriminator value to select sub set of candidate search points and finally perform block distortion measurement calculation to the latest candidate search points to find the best match. The famous Exhaustive Search (ES) and Three-Step Search (TSS) algorithms are used to compare with proposed algorithm. The experimental test shows that the proposed searching method results in compare with TSS algorithm, produce results little slower in term of search time but better in term of distortion measurement when the size of search area is [-6,6].Results in compare with ES show that the proposed searching method produces results near the ES in term of distortion measurement but faster than it in term of search time when the size of search area is [-7,7].
