    Although hunches and rules are easy to follow, they tend to offer a narrow viewpoint for designing Internet-based ventures. An axiomatic approach however, is scientific in nature. Further, when combined with procedural methodologies, axioms can offer great value and guidance in the design and...

    Local moving frame is constructed to analyze the bifurcation of a heterodimensional cycle with weak inclination ip in R4. Under some generic hypotheses, the existence conditions for the heteroclinic orbit, 1-homoclinic orbit, 1-periodic orbit and two-fold or three-fold 1-periodic orbit are...

    Uncertainty theory is a new branch of axiomatic mathematics for studying the subjective uncertainty. In uncertain theory, uncertain variable is a fundamental concept, which is used to represent imprecise quantities (unknown constants and unsharp concepts). Entropy of uncertain variable is an...
