TL;DR: According to the Strategy Document of Fuel Cell Technology Development (Approved by the government in 2004), Iran has revealed good progress in fuel cell projects as discussed by the authors, and private sectors have already signed contracts to build more than 600MW of biomass systems and 500MW of new wind energy developments.
Abstract: Iran as a major oil producing country has increasingly paid attention to the non-fossil energy resources, in particular to renewable energy sources for its longer term energy plans. In this regard, 11 projects pertaining to solar energy are being utilized or carried out by Iran׳s Ministry of Energy. The total photovoltaic power installed in 2004 was 14,020 MW. This rate reached 67 MW by the end of 2010. Further, two geothermal projects are being constructed in Ardabil Province at present. By the end of 2010, the Meshkinshahr geothermal power plant project revealed a progress rate equal to 50%. Similarly, the package construction project in Ardabil revealed a 32% progress. Due to financial hardship in the Fourth Development Program, the completion of these projects was extended to the end of the Fifth Development Program. The nameplate power of biogas power plants in Iran is 1.860 MW the total installed capacity is 1.665 MW. According to Strategy Document of Fuel Cell Technology Development (Approved by the government in 2004), Iran has revealed good progress in fuel cell projects. Private sectors have already signed contracts to build more than 600 MW of biomass systems and 500 MW of new wind energy developments. The nominal power of the wind parks that can be erected in the available sites with remarkable wind potential in Iran is approximately 6500 MW, employing wind turbines of 60,000 MW nominal power. The estimated mean annual capacity factor of these wind parks is 33%.

TL;DR: In this article, two MCDM methods are applied in this research for decision making in high-tech industries in Iran and the final result shows that Nanotechnology is at the top of the list.
Abstract: One of the symbols of developed countries is high tech industries. High tech industries have a large margin. One of the priorities of developing countries is the progress in this type of industries. The decisions about priority of developing an industry are so hard that seems it should be seen from different perspectives. This research is focused on decision and policy making in priority of high tech industries in Iran. Two MCDM methods are applied in this research for decision making in this area. SWARA for evaluating and weighting criteria and COPRAS for evaluating and ranking alternatives are applied. Eleven experts from different fields participated in this research to make decision with SWARA and COPRAS. Four high tech industries including Biomedical Micro Electromechanical Systems (BioMEMS), Nano Technology, Biotechnology, and Biomedical Engineering were selected for this research. These industries were selected based on the potential of Iran. Final result shows that Nanotechnology is at the...

TL;DR: Comparing the results to the fastest reported vectorized Cray Y-MP and C90 algorithm shows that the current generation of parallel machines is competitive with conventional vector supercomputers even for small problems.
Abstract: Three parallel algorithms for classical molecular dynamics are presented. The first assigns each processor a fixed subset of atoms; the second assigns each a fixed subset of inter-atomic forces to compute; the third assigns each a fixed spatial region. The algorithms are suitable for molecular dynamics models which can be difficult to parallelize efficiently—those with short-range forces where the neighbors of each atom change rapidly. They can be implemented on any distributed-memory parallel machine which allows for message-passing of data between independently executing processors. The algorithms are tested on a standard Lennard-Jones benchmark problem for system sizes ranging from 500 to 100,000,000 atoms on several parallel supercomputers--the nCUBE 2, Intel iPSC/860 and Paragon, and Cray T3D. Comparing the results to the fastest reported vectorized Cray Y-MP and C90 algorithm shows that the current generation of parallel machines is competitive with conventional vector supercomputers even for small problems. For large problems, the spatial algorithm achieves parallel efficiencies of 90% and a 1840-node Intel Paragon performs up to 165 faster than a single Cray C9O processor. Trade-offs between the three algorithms and guidelines for adapting them to more complex molecular dynamics simulations are also discussed.

TL;DR: In this paper, two major figures in adaptive control provide a wealth of material for researchers, practitioners, and students to enhance their work through the information on many new theoretical developments, and can be used by mathematical control theory specialists to adapt their research to practical needs.
Abstract: This book, written by two major figures in adaptive control, provides a wealth of material for researchers, practitioners, and students. While some researchers in adaptive control may note the absence of a particular topic, the book‘s scope represents a high-gain instrument. It can be used by designers of control systems to enhance their work through the information on many new theoretical developments, and can be used by mathematical control theory specialists to adapt their research to practical needs. The book is strongly recommended to anyone interested in adaptive control.

TL;DR: The results of this study indicated that in 2013 scholars have published articles more than in other years, and energy, environment and sustainability were ranked as the first areas that have applied MCDM techniques and approaches.
Abstract: Multiple criteria decision-making (MCDM) is considered as a complex decision-making (DM) tool involving both quantitative and qualitative factors. In recent years, several MCDM techniques and approaches have been suggested to choosing the optimal probable options. The purpose of this article is to systematically review the applications and methodologies of the MCDM techniques and approaches. This study reviewed a total of 393 articles published from 2000 to 2014 in more than 120 peer reviewed journals (extracted from Web of Science). According to experts’ opinion, these articles were grouped into 15 fields. Furthermore, these articles were categorised based on authors, publication date, name of journals, methods, tools, and type of research (MCDM utilising research, MCDM developing research, and MCDM proposing research). The results of this study indicated that in 2013 scholars have published articles more than in other years. In addition, the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) method in the individual tool...
