CORCHADO) (Ángel REDERO (Ediciones Universidad de Salamanca)) Tue, 18 Jul 2023 00:00:00 +0200 OJS 60 Restricted Computations and Parameters in Type-Theory of Acyclic Recursion <p>The paper extends the formal language and the reduction calculus of Moschovakis type-theory of recursion, by adding a restrictor operator on terms with predicative restrictions. Terms with restrictions over memory variables formalise inductive algorithms with generalised, restricted parameters. The extended type-theory of restricted recursion (TTRR) provides computations for algorithmic semantics of mathematical expressions and definite descriptors, in formal and natural languages.</p> <p>The reduction calculi of TTRR provides a mathematical foundation of the work of compilers for reducing recursive programs to iterative ones. The type-theory of acyclic recursion (TTAR) has a special importance to syntax-semantics interfaces in computational grammars.</p> Roussanka Loukanova Copyright (c) 2023 Roussanka Loukanova Thu, 20 Jul 2023 00:00:00 +0200 Eta-Reduction in Type-Theory of Acyclic Recursion <p>We investigate the applicability of the classic eta-conversion in the type-theory of acyclic algorithms. While denotationally valid, classic eta-conversion is not algorithmically valid in the type theory of algorithms, with the exception of few limited cases. The paper shows how the restricted, algorithmic eta-rule can recover algorithmic eta-conversion in the reduction calculi of type-theory of algorithms.</p> Roussanka Loukanova Copyright (c) 2022 Roussanka Loukanova Tue, 18 Jul 2023 00:00:00 +0200 Comparison of Swarm-based Metaheuristic and Gradient Descent-based Algorithms in Artificial Neural Network Training <p><em>This paper aims to compare the gradient descent-based algorithms under classical training model and swarm-based metaheuristic algorithms in feed forward backpropagation artificial neural network training. Batch weight and bias rule, Bayesian regularization, cyclical weight and bias rule and Levenberg-Marquardt algorithms are used as the classical gradient descent-based algorithms. In terms of the swarm-based metaheuristic algorithms, hunger games search, gray wolf optimizer, Archimedes optimization, and the Aquila optimizer are adopted. The Iris data set is used in this paper for the training. Mean square error, mean absolute error and determination coefficient are used as statistical measurement techniques to determine the effect of the network architecture and the adopted training algorithm. The metaheuristic algorithms are shown to have superior capability over the gradient descent-based algorithms in terms of artificial neural network training. In addition to their success in error rates, the classification capabilities of the metaheuristic algorithms are also observed to be in the range of 94%-97%. The hunger games search algorithm is also observed for its specific advantages amongst the metaheuristic algorithms as it maintains good performance in terms of classification ability and other statistical measurements.</em></p> Erdal Eker, Murat Kayri, Serdar Ekinci, Davut İzci Copyright (c) 2023 erdal eker Tue, 19 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0200 A Framework for Improving the Performance of QKDN using Machine Learning Approach <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>A reliable secure communication can be given between two remote parties by key sharing, quantum key distribution (QKD) is widely concentrated as the information in QKD is safeguarded by the laws of quantum physics. There are many techniques that deal with quantum key distribution network (QKDN), however, only few of them use machine learning (ML) and soft computing techniques to improve QKDN. ML can analyze data and improve itself through model training without having to be programmed manually. There has been a lot of progress in both the hardware and software of ML technologies. Given ML’s advantageous features, it can help improve and resolve issues in QKDN, facilitating its commercialization. The proposed work provides a detailed understanding of role of each layer of QKDN, addressing the limitations of each layer, and suggesting a framework to improve the performance metrics for various applications of QKDN by applying machine learning techniques, such as support vector machine and decision tree algorithms.</p> </div> </div> </div> R Arthi, A Saravanan, J S Nayana, Chandresh MuthuKumaran Copyright (c) 2023 Arthi R, Saravanan A, Nayana J S, Chandresh MuthuKumaran Tue, 19 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0200 Energy Efficient 4-2 and 5-2 Compressor for Low Power Computing <p><em>The rising use of multimedia devices, power management has become a major challenge. Various types of compressors have been designed in this study. Compressor circuits are designed using several circuits of XOR-XNOR gates and multiplexers. XOR-XNOR gate combinations and multiplexer circuits can be used to construct the suggested compressor design. The performance of proposed compressor circuits using these low-power XOR-XNOR gates and multiplexer blocks has been found to be space and power economical. This study proposes low-power and high-speed 3-2, 4-2, and 5-2 compressors for digital signal processing applications. A new compressor has also been proposed that is faster and uses less energy than the traditional compressor. The Full adder circuit which is constructed using various combinations of XOR-XNOR gates is used to develop this proposed compressor. The proposed 4-2 compressor shows average power dissipation 1235 nW and average delay 2.7 nS while 5-2 compressor shows average power dissipation 2973.50 nW and average delay 3.75 nS.</em></p> Rahul Mani Upadhyay, R.K.
