TL;DR: With high accuracy and a favorable F1 score, the newly designed EfficientNet CNN architecture can be a useful decision-making tool in the study of brain tumor diagnostic tests.
Abstract: Brain tumors are most common in children and the elderly. It is a serious form of cancer caused by uncontrollable brain cell growth inside the skull. Tumor cells are notoriously difficult to classify due to their heterogeneity. Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are the most widely used machine learning algorithm for visual learning and brain tumor recognition. This study proposed a CNN-based dense EfficientNet using min-max normalization to classify 3260 T1-weighted contrast-enhanced brain magnetic resonance images into four categories (glioma, meningioma, pituitary, and no tumor). The developed network is a variant of EfficientNet with dense and drop-out layers added. Similarly, the authors combined data augmentation with min-max normalization to increase the contrast of tumor cells. The benefit of the dense CNN model is that it can accurately categorize a limited database of pictures. As a result, the proposed approach provides exceptional overall performance. The experimental results indicate that the proposed model was 99.97% accurate during training and 98.78% accurate during testing. With high accuracy and a favorable F1 score, the newly designed EfficientNet CNN architecture can be a useful decision-making tool in the study of brain tumor diagnostic tests.

TL;DR: In this article , a framework based on multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) is provided that integrates spherical fuzzy Analytical Hierarchical Process (SF-AHP) and grey Complex Proportional Assessment (G-COPRAS), in which spherical fuzzy sets and grey numbers are used to express the ambiguous linguistic evaluation statements of experts.
Abstract: Sustainable supplier selection (SSS) is gaining popularity as a practical method to supply chain sustainability among academics and practitioners. However, in addition to balancing economic, social, and environmental factors, the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the selection of long-term suppliers to ensure sustainable supply chains, recover better from the pandemic and effectively respond to any future unprecedented crises. The purpose of this study is to assess and choose a possible supplier based on their capability to adapt to the COVID-19 epidemic in a sustainable manner. For this assessment, a framework based on multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) is provided that integrates spherical fuzzy Analytical Hierarchical Process (SF-AHP) and grey Complex Proportional Assessment (G-COPRAS), in which spherical fuzzy sets and grey numbers are used to express the ambiguous linguistic evaluation statements of experts. In the first stage, the evaluation criteria system is identified through a literature review and experts’ opinions. The SF-AHP is then used to determine the criteria weights. Finally, the G-COPRAS method is utilized to select sustainable suppliers. A case study in the automotive industry in Vietnam is presented to demonstrate the proposed approach’s effectiveness. From the SF-AHP findings, “quality”, “use of personal protective equipment”, “cost/price”, “safety and health practices and wellbeing of suppliers”, and “economic recovery programs” have been ranked as the five most important criteria. From G-COPRAS analysis, THACO Parts (Supplier 02) is the best supplier. A sensitivity study was also conducted to verify the robustness of the proposed model, in which the priority rankings of the best suppliers are very similar. For long-term development and increased competitiveness, industrial businesses must stress the integration of response mechanisms during SSS implementation in the COVID-19 epidemic, according to the findings. This will result in significant cost and resource savings, as well as reduced environmental consequences and a long-term supply chain, independent of the crisis.

TL;DR: In this article , a variational approach based on the variational theory and Ritz-like method can construct the explicit solutions via the stationary conditions only taking two steps, and the dynamic behaviors of the solutions are exhibited by choosing the appropriate parameters through the 3D and density plots.
Abstract: In this paper, the integrable (2+1)-dimensional Maccari system (MS), which can model many complex phenomena in hydrodynamics, plasma physics and nonlinear optics, is investigated by the variational approach (VA). This proposed approach that based on the variational theory and Ritz-like method can construct the explicit solutions via the stationary conditions only taking two steps. Finally, the dynamic behaviors of the solutions are exhibited by choosing the appropriate parameters through the 3-D and density plots. It can be seen that the proposed method is concise and straightforward, and can be adopted to study the travelling wave theory in physics.

TL;DR: In this article , the modified Benjamin-Bona-Mahony equation was used to model the long wave in nonlinear dispersive media of the optical illusion field, and two effective techniques, the variational direct method and He's frequency formulation method, were employed to seek the travelling wave solutions.
Abstract: This study focuses on investigating the modified Benjamin-Bona-Mahony equation that is used to model the long wave in nonlinear dispersive media of the optical illusion field. Two effective techniques, the variational direct method and He’s frequency formulation method, are employed to seek the travelling wave solutions. Using these two techniques, abundant exact solutions such as the bright wave, bright-dark wave, bright-like wave, kinky-bright wave and periodic wave solutions, are obtained. The 3-D contours and 2-D curves are drawn to present the dynamic physical behaviors of the solutions by assigning the proper parameters. It shows that the proposed methods are effective but simple and only need one or two steps to construct the exact solutions, which are expected to provide some new insights to study the travelling wave solutions of the PDEs arising in physics.
