We study the best usage-based rating downside in an incredibly resource-constrained network with one increasing service supplier and multiple teams of surplus-maximizing users. With the idea that the service supplier is aware of the utility operate of every user (thus complete information), we discover that the entire value differentiation theme can do an over sized revenue gain (e.g., 50%) compared to no value differentiation, once the entire network resource is comparably restricted and therefore the high-willingness-to-pay users are minorities. However, the entire value differentiation theme could result in a high implementation quality. To trade off the revenue against the implementation complexity; we tend to any study the partial value differentiation theme and style a polynomial-time formula which will cipher the best partial differentiation costs. We tend to additionally think about the unfinished data case wherever the service supplier doesn't understand to that cluster every user belongs. We tend to show that it's still doable to comprehend value differentiation beneath this situation and supply the sufficient and necessary condition under that an incentive-compatible differentiation theme can do similar revenue as beneath complete data.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
