A Modern Chase Algorithm

Pursuit and evasion tends to be incorporated in human nature from a very long time with a very huge range of activities. Here, we are going to create an intelligent chase algorithm, which uses two basic approaches. After which we will use the newly created equations to simulate both approaches and provide graphical results. This analysis is based upon the fact that in modern days we can estimate the speed of a moving object and then chase it down depending upon its speed. We will also be taking the accuracy of such estimation in picture and depending upon a certain accuracy and other inputs the simulation will provide the result and performance of both the approaches.

YAACT: A genetic algorithm tool for code coverage analysis

Testing is both technically and economically an important part of high quality software production. It has been estimated that testing accounts for half of the expenses in software production. Much of the testing is done manually or using other labor-intensive methods. It is thus vital for the software industry to develop efficient, cost effective, and automatic means and tools for software testing. Researchers have proposed several methods over years to generate automatically solution which have different drawbacks. This study examines automatic software testing optimization by using genetic algorithm approaches. This study will cover two approaches: a) obtain the sequence of regression tests that cover the greatest amount of code and b) once it is achieved another genetic algorithm will eliminate tests cases that cover the same section of code on the basis of still get the maximum code coverage. The overall aim of this research is to reduce the number of test cases that need to be run with the greatest amount of code covered.

Numerical and Analytic Methods in Option Pricing

In this paper we discuss how to price American, European and Asian options using a geometric Brownian motion model for stock price. We investigate the analytic solution for Black-Scholes differential equation for European options and consider numerical methods for approximating the price of other types of options. These numerical methods include Monte Carlo, binomial trees, trinomial trees and finite difference methods. We conclude our discussion with an investigation of how these methods perform with respect to the changes in different Greeks. Further analysing how the value of a certain Greeks affect the price of a given option.

Phrase-Projection for Cross-Lingual JAMR training

We are given spans of the target text which align to concepts in the AMR graph.These alignment do not cover every token in the target sentnce. Typically function words are not aligned to any graph fragment. Next, we obtain word alignments between the target sentence and source sentence. Since we have word alignments between target and source, and phrase alignments between target and AMR graph, we must convert the word alingments into phrase alignments. The phrases on the source side will then be projected to the AMR concepts via the target sentence
