Context-awareness of the IoT through the on-the-fly preference modelingAug 08 2014The context-awareness of things that belong to IoT networks have to be considered in a distributed computation paradigm. In the paper we suggest the use of graph transformations and temporal logic as a formal framework for a knowledge representation of ... More

An orthogonality relation for the Whittaker functions of the second kind of imaginary orderOct 08 2009Oct 13 2009An orthogonality relation for the Whittaker functions of the second kind of imaginary order, $W_{\kappa,\mathrm{i}\mu}(x)$, with $\mu\in\mathbb{R}$, is investigated. The integral $\int_{0}^{\infty}\mathrm{d}x\: x^{-2}W_{\kappa,\mathrm{i}\mu}(x)W_{\kappa,\mathrm{i}\mu'}(x)$ ... More
