71. Bayesian Alternative to the Guide's Use of the Welch-Satterthwaite Formula
Topic: Math
Published: 1/3/2006
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: The Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement suggests that to account for the statistical uncertainty in a combined standard uncertainty that arises when one or more of its components are evaluated from a limited number of independent no ...

72. Discrete Fourier Series Approximation to Periodic Solutions of Autonomous Delay Differential Equations
Topic: Math
Published: 1/2/2006
Author: David E. Gilsinn
Abstract: We begin this expository essay by reviewing with examples what a typical engineer already knows about statistics. We then consider a central question in engineering decision making, i.e., given a computer simulation of high-consequence systems, how ...

73. Comparison of ISO-GUM, draft GUM Supplement 1, and Bayesian statistics using simple linear calibration
Topic: Math
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, Blaza Toman, Ding Huang
Abstract: We compare three approaches for quantifying uncertainty using a measurement equation: the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM), draft GUM Supplement 1, and Bayesian statistic ...

74. Response to comments on Statistical analysis of CIPM key comparisons based on the ISO Guide
Topic: Math
Published: 2/15/2005
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, Raju Vsnu Datla, Albert C Parr

75. Pose of I-Beams for Construction Site Automation
Topic: Math
Published: 9/21/2004
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Geraldine S Cheok, Alan M. (Alan M.) Lytle
Abstract: Automation of construction processes can result in reduced project costs and increased worker safety. A process that lends itself to automation is the picking and placing of objects. However, determining the pose (position and orientation) of an ob ...

76. Erratum: Statistical Interpretation of Key Comparison Reference Value and Degrees of Equivalence
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Math
Published: 8/1/2004
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, Raju Vsnu Datla, Albert C Parr

77. Comparative Statistical Analysis of Test Parts Manufactured in Production Environments
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Topic: Math
Published: 2/2/2004
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Alice V. Ling
Abstract: Estimating error uncertainties arising in production parts isnot a well understood process. This study developed an approach to estimatethese uncertainties. Machine tool error components on a vertical turningcenter were measured. Multiple parts were ...

78. Approximating Limit Cycles of a Van der Pol Equation with Delay
Topic: Math
Published: 1/15/2004
Author: David E. Gilsinn
Abstract: In this paper a theorem of Stokes is used to establish the existence of a periodic solution of a Van der Pol equation with fixed delay in the neighborhood of an approximating solution that satisfies a certain noncriticality condition.

79. Using Nanoscillatory Splines to Model Urban Environments
Topic: Math
Published: 1/15/2004
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Marjorie A McClain, Christoph Johann Witzgall

80. Constructing Sequence Alignments from a Markov Decision Model with Estimated Parameter Values
Topic: Math
Published: 1/1/2004
Authors: Fern Y Hunt, Anthony J Kearsley, Agnes A. O'Gallagher
Abstract: Current methods for aligning biological sequences are based on dynamic programming algorithms. If large numbers of sequences or a number of long ones are to be aligned the required computations are expensive in memory and CPU time. In an attempt to b ...
