    Buddy programs help newcomers to smooth transition. The programs also try to increase the performance of the new personnel, give them a moral support and provide a proper atmosphere. This study aims to figure out the deficiencies of the buddy program implemented in Bingol Anti-Terror Police Department (BATPD) and try to develop effective solutions for the programÔÇÖs shortages. Thus, the newcomers are able to adapt to the organization in the fastest way without losing time and energy. In this study, the researcher applied observations and interviews to measure the effectiveness of the program. The participants were selected all of the newcomers who joined the organization in 2012. Data collection process took almost 12 months. According to results of the research, insufficient physical conditions of the unit, multitasking character of the personnel, and incompetent buddies are three reasons that hinder the program from being more successful. Training programs for buddies, focusing on one task at the one time, and more comfortable designed atmosphere in the organization are potential solutions for a better program

    An Environmentally Conscious Multi-Objective Weber Problem for Green Location and Distribution Planning: A Fuzzy Weighted Additive Approach

    Get PDF
    In this study, a multi-objective Weber (p-median) problem is treated in order to determine the location of the warehouses to be opened and the distribution plans of products. The company carries out the distribution with three types of vehicles differing in unit transportation cost, carbon emission and velocity. Three conflicting objectives are aimed to be minimized, i.e.; the demand weighted total transportation cost, the total delivery time and the total carbon. We adopted a fuzzy weighted additive approach to deal with the multi-objective optimization function, in which the weights of each individual objective function are determined by Analytic Hierarchy Process

    DCTRGAN: Improving the Precision of Generative Models with Reweighting

    Full text link
    Significant advances in deep learning have led to more widely used and precise neural network-based generative models such as Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). We introduce a post-hoc correction to deep generative models to further improve their fidelity, based on the Deep neural networks using the Classification for Tuning and Reweighting (DCTR) protocol. The correction takes the form of a reweighting function that can be applied to generated examples when making predictions from the simulation. We illustrate this approach using GANs trained on standard multimodal probability densities as well as calorimeter simulations from high energy physics. We show that the weighted GAN examples significantly improve the accuracy of the generated samples without a large loss in statistical power. This approach could be applied to any generative model and is a promising refinement method for high energy physics applications and beyond.Comment: 14 pages, 8 figure

    Getting High: High Fidelity Simulation of High Granularity Calorimeters with High Speed

    Full text link
    Accurate simulation of physical processes is crucial for the success of modern particle physics. However, simulating the development and interaction of particle showers with calorimeter detectors is a time consuming process and drives the computing needs of large experiments at the LHC and future colliders. Recently, generative machine learning models based on deep neural networks have shown promise in speeding up this task by several orders of magnitude. We investigate the use of a new architecture -- the Bounded Information Bottleneck Autoencoder -- for modelling electromagnetic showers in the central region of the Silicon-Tungsten calorimeter of the proposed International Large Detector. Combined with a novel second post-processing network, this approach achieves an accurate simulation of differential distributions including for the first time the shape of the minimum-ionizing-particle peak compared to a full GEANT4 simulation for a high-granularity calorimeter with 27k simulated channels. The results are validated by comparing to established architectures. Our results further strengthen the case of using generative networks for fast simulation and demonstrate that physically relevant differential distributions can be described with high accuracy.Comment: 17 pages, 12 figure

    New Angles on Fast Calorimeter Shower Simulation

    Full text link
    The demands placed on computational resources by the simulation requirements of high energy physics experiments motivate the development of novel simulation tools. Machine learning based generative models offer a solution that is both fast and accurate. In this work we extend the Bounded Information Bottleneck Autoencoder (BIB-AE) architecture, designed for the simulation of particle showers in highly granular calorimeters, in two key directions. First, we generalise the model to a multi-parameter conditioning scenario, while retaining a high degree of physics fidelity. In a second step, we perform a detailed study of the effect of applying a state-of-the-art particle flow-based reconstruction procedure to the generated showers. We demonstrate that the performance of the model remains high after reconstruction. These results are an important step towards creating a more general simulation tool, where maintaining physics performance after reconstruction is the ultimate target.Comment: 26 pages, 19 figure

    <p>Abstract</p> <p>Introduction</p> <p>Pyomyositis is a disease in which an abscess is formed deep within large striated muscles.</p> <p>Case presentation</p> <p>We report the case of a 10-year-old boy who presented with fever and a painful hip and was subsequently diagnosed with pyomyositis of the tensor fascia lata. In children with clinical and laboratory findings of inflammation in the vicinity of the hip joint, the differential diagnosis includes transient synovitis, an early stage of Legg-Calv├ę-Perthes disease, infectious arthritis of the hip, rheumatologic diseases and extracapsular infection such as osteomyelitis.</p> <p>Conclusion</p> <p>To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of pyomyositis of the tensor fascia lata. Although pyomyositis is a rare disease and the differential diagnosis includes a variety of other commonly observed diseases, pyomyositis should be considered in cases where children present with fever, leukocytosis and localized pain.</p
