Crosslayer design for power efficiency and QoS provisioning in multihop wireless networks
(2006)In recent years, it has become common consensus that independent consideration of communication layers often turns out to be inadequate in terms of providing the desired quality of service (QoS) and power efficiency in ... 
Evolving cognitive and social experience in Particle Swarm Optimization through Differential Evolution: A hybrid approach
(2012)In recent years, the Particle Swarm Optimization has rapidly gained increasing popularity and many variants and hybrid approaches have been proposed to improve it. In this paper, motivated by the behavior and the spatial ... 
The Grangercausality between income and educational inequality: a spatial crossregressive VAR framework
(2014)This paper tests the causal processes between income and educational inequality within regions of the European Union, using a spatial crossregressive VAR framework. The results show that there is a heterogeneous causality ... 
Growth, integration, and regional disparities in the European Union
(2005)In this paper we challenge the ability of the conventional methods initiated by Barro and SalaiMartin in the early 1990s to detect actual convergence or divergence trends across countries or regions and suggest an ... 
The matrix analogue of the scalar AOR iterative method
(2015)The Accelerated Overrelaxation (AOR) and the Generalized AOR (GAOR) iterative methods for the solution of linear systems of algebraic equations (Ax = b, A is an element of Cnxn, det(A) not equal 0, b is an element of Cn) ... 
Measuring regional economic efficiency: the case of Greek prefectures
(2010)This paper, using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), measures for the first time the economic growth policies of the Greek prefectures. Based on the neoclassical model of growth it uses private and public investments and ... 
Nonstationary Extrapolated Modulus Algorithms for the solution of the Linear Complementarity Problem
(2009)The Linear Complementarity Problem (LCP) has many applications as, e.g., in the solution of Linear and Convex Quadratic Programming, in Free Boundary Value problems of Fluid Mechanics, etc. In the present work we assume ... 
ON ITERATIVE SOLUTION FOR LINEAR COMPLEMENTARITY PROBLEM WITH AN H+MATRIX
(2012)The numerous applications of the linear complementarity problem (LCP) in, e.g., the solution of linear and convex quadratic programming, free boundary value problems of fluid mechanics, and moving boundary value problems ... 
On the choice of parameters in MAOR type splitting methods for the linear complementarity problem
(2014)In the present work we consider the iterative solution of the Linear Complementarity Problem (LCP), with a nonsingular H (+) coefficient matrix A, by using all modulusbased matrix splitting iterative methods that have ... 
On the Solution of the Linear Complementarity Problem by the Generalized Accelerated Overrelaxation Iterative Method
(2015)In the present work, we determine intervals of convergence for the various parameters involved for what is known as the generalized accelerated overrelaxation iterative method for the solution of the linear complementarity ... 
Patterns of regional inequality in transition economies
(2001)This paper provides a comparative account of important aspects of regional development in transition economies, on the basis of regional statistics available for Poland, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. More specifically it ... 
Regional inequalities in Greece
(2000)This article examines regional inequalities in Greece, on the basis of sigmaconvergence and betaconvergence analysis and shows that they were reduced in the 1970s and the 1980s. Regression analysis indicates that regional ...
