Today's world is full of new, small, personal handhelds. They are called smartphones or tablets. The machines themselves always have less power than desktop computers or even mainframes which were left behind. Their computational power can be increased when they are joined together in a group and are addressing one common task. To check and demonstrate the possibility of the use of mobile devices being joined to a group, the SOMA algorithm was chosen. The well as known functions, for example; De Jong, Rosenbrock, Rastrigin or Schwefel will be used and their extremes (minimums) will be realised. The goal is to test the speed of these mobile devices to realise the extremes of more dimensional functions. The advantages and disadvantages of this swarm linking will be shown.

Modal kinetic energy (MKE) feature has been mostly employed for optimal sensor layout strategies; nevertheless, little attention is paid to use the feature to the field of structural damage detection. The article presents
the extensive applicability of MKE change ratio (MKECR), a good damage sensitive parameter, to damage localization and quantification of laminated composite beams. The formulation of the parameter is based on the closed-form of element MKE sensitivity. The performance of the offered damage detection method is numerically verified by a clamped-clamped composite beam and a twospan continuous composite beam with different hypothetical damage scenarios. The influence of incomplete mode shapes, various noise levels as well as damage magnitudes on damage prediction results are also investigated. The obtained results from these numerical examples indicate that the offered method reliably localize the actually damaged elements and approximately estimate their severities, even under incomplete measurements at a high noise level.

In terms of luminous ux, the remote phosphor structure is better than conformal structure or in-cup phosphor structure, however, this structure often has inferior color quality compared to the others. As a result, many studies have been conducted to nd a solution to the drawback mentioned above. In this research, we are after the same goal using WLEDs structure with color temperature of 5600 K and come to the conclusion that dual-layer phosphor structure can improve the color rendering index (CRI) and the color quality scale (CQS). The concept of the research is to place red phosphor layer Mg2TiO4:Mn4+ on a yellow phosphor layer YAG:Ce3+ and locate the concentration of Mg2TiO4:Mn4+ that allows the color quality to reach the highest value. The result shows that Mg2TiO4:Mn4+ benets CRI and CQS, more specifically, the addition of Mg2TiO4:Mn4+ in WLEDs boosts the red light component, thus, enhancing CRI and CQS. However, it is demonstrated through the application of Mie-scattering theory and Lambert-Beer law that when the concentration of Mg2TiO4:Mn4+ exceed the limit, it can harm the luminous flux of WLEDs. The result of this research is a valuable contribution to improving the techniques of manufacturing better WLEDs with higher white light quality.

Preserving, maintaining and teaching traditional martial arts are very important
activities in social life. That helps preserve national culture, exercise and self-defense for practitioners. However, traditional martial arts have many different postures and activities of the body and body parts are diverse. The problem of estimating the actions of the human body still has many challenges, such as accuracy, obscurity, etc. In this paper, we survey several strong studies in the recently years for 3-D human pose estimation. Statistical tables have been compiled for years, typical results of these studies on the Human 3.6m dataset have been summarized. We also present a comparative study for 3-D human pose estimation based on the method that uses a single image. This study based on the methods that use the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) for 2-D pose estimation, and then using 3-D pose library for mapping the 2-D results into the 3-D space. The CNNs model is trained on the benchmark datasets as MSCOCO Keypoints Challenge dataset [
1], Human 3.6m [2], MPII dataset [3], LSP [4], [5], etc. We nal publish the dataset of Vietnamese's traditional martial arts in Binh Dinh province for evaluating the 3-D human pose estimation. Quantitative results are presented and evaluated.

Piezoelectric bimorph actuators have been employed in several applications. In this paper, the piezoelectric actuator is discretized and its hysteresis function is studied, then a digital sliding mode controller is designed. Furthermore, a perturbation estimation technique is applied and an observer is no longer needed. In addition, simulations are performed also using the traditional PID controller in order to validate the proposed controller scheme performance.

Tax consulting service is one of various professional consulting services and is interested to study by many researchers. Nevertheless, this issue has not been interested to research in Vietnam. This paper performs confirmatory factors analysis (CFA) and structural equation modeling (SEM) to identify the factors influencing the intentions of using tax consulting services of firms in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. Specifically, this paper finds that the intentions depend on the “attitude toward the behavior” and “replacement”. In addition, through Chi-square test, it can be proven that the intentions also depend on type of firms and whether they have ever used tax consulting service or not. Based on the obtained results, the discussion and recommendation are also proposed.

Comparing graph databases with traditional,e.g., relational databases, some important database features are often missing there. Particularly, a graph database schema including integrity constraints is mostly not explicitly defined, also a conceptual modelling is not used. It is hard to check a consistency of the graph database, because almost no integrity constraints are defined or only their very simple representatives can be specified. In the paper, we discuss these issues and present current possibilities and challenges in graph database modelling. We focus also on integrity constraints modelling and propose functional dependencies between entity types, which reminds modelling functional dependencies known from relational databases. We show a number of examples of often cited GDBMSs and their approach to database schemas and ICs specification. Also a conceptual level of a graph database design is considered. We propose a sufficient conceptual model based on a binary variant of the ER model and show its relationship to a graph database model, i.e. a mapping conceptual schemas to database schemas. An alternative based on the conceptual functions called attributes is presented.

Enhancement of the color uniformity, the lumen output of the multi-chip white LED lamps (MCW-LEDs) at high color correlated temperature is a big challenge for researchers. However, an innovative LED lamp designed with a phosphor compounding, which combines (La,Ce,Tb) PO4:Ce:Tb (LaTb) green phosphor with YAG: CE yellow phosphor, is proposed as an optimal solution to this requirement. Index, using LaTb green phosphor into MCWLEDs could bring a superior optical performance for MCW-LEDs. It is found that the lumen output of this new MCW-LED at a high color temperature of 8500 K significantly improves up to 1600 lm compared to MCW-LEDs without LaTb phosphor. The simulation results demonstrated that the CCT deviation sharply decreases from 9000 to 1000 at the LaTb concentration range from 0 to 1.8 %, while the Color Rendering Index ability (CRI) and the Color Quality Scale (CQS) slightly decrease. To obtain the highest lumen output and the best color uniformity, the particle size range within 6 - 8 µm should be suggested.

This paper presents an extended Kalman filtering (EKF) algorithm for estimating immeasurable state variables of a vehicle stability control system. Initially, the steering angle and vertical forces on the tires were considered inputs of the estimator. The measured process outputs were the sensor signals egarding longitudinal and lateral accelerations, steering angle, yaw rate, and wheel speed. Subsequently, by using Euler discretization for a seven-degree-of-freedom nonlinear vehicle model, difficult-to-measure state variables such as lateral velocity, vehicle side-slip angle, and lateral tire forces were identified separately by using the EKF algorithm. The estimation results of the proposed control system evidenced high performance.

Fractional-order controllers are recognized to guarantee better closed-loop performance and robustness than conventional integer-order controllers. However, fractional-order transfer functions make time, frequency domain analysis and simulation significantly difficult. In practice, the popular way to overcome these difficulties is linearization of the fractional-order system. Here, a systematic approach is proposed for linearizing the transfer function of fractional-order systems. This approach is based on the real interpolation method (RIM) to approximate fractional-order transfer function (FOTF) by rational-order transfer function. The proposed method is implemented and compared to CFE high-frequency method; Carlson’s method; Matsuda’s method; Chare ’s method; Oustaloup’s method; least-squares, frequency interpolation method (FIM). The results of comparison show that, the method is simple, computationally efficient, flexible, and more accurate in time domain than the above considered methods.

In this paper, we have discussed the synchronization between coupled Josephson Junctions which experience different chaotic oscillations. Due to potential high-frequency applications, the shunted nonlinear resistive-capacitive-inductance junction (RCLSJ) model of Josephson junction was considered in this paper. In order to obtain the synchronization, an adaptive MIMO controller is developed to drive the states of the slave chaotic junction to follow the states of the master chaotic junction. The developed controller has two parts: the fuzzy neural controller and the sliding mode controller. The fuzzy neural controller employs a fuzzy neural network to simulate the behavior of the ideal feedback linearization controller, while the sliding mode controller is used to ensure the robustness of the controlled system and reduce the undesired effects of the estimate errors. In addition, the Lyapunov candidate function is also given for further stability analysis. The numerical simulations are carried out to verify the validity of the proposed control approach.
