181. The Dilogarithm Function for Complex Argument
Topic: Math
Published: 11/8/2003
Author: L C. Maximon
Abstract: This paper summarizes the basic properties of the Euler dilogarithm function, often referred to as the Spence function. These include integral representations, series expansions, linear and quadratic transformations, functional relations, numerical v ...

182. Statistical Interpretation of Key Comparison Reference Value and Degrees of Equivalence
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Math
Published: 11/1/2003
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, Raju Vsnu Datla, Albert C Parr
Abstract: This paper responds to comments received by the authors on the paper, Combined Result and Associated Uncertainty from Interlaboratory Evaluations Based on the ISO Guide that appeared in Metrologia, 2002, 39, 279-293.

183. The Normalized Reduced Form and Cell Mathematical Tools for Lattice Analysis--Symmetry and Similarity
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Math
Published: 11/1/2003
Author: Alan D. Mighell
Abstract: To intelligently and effectively use the crystallographic databases, dierse mathematical and computer tools are required that can delve into the nature of a given lattice or that can cut across a set of lattices to elucidate various types of interlat ...

184. Deconvolving LADAR Images Of Bar Codes for Construction Site Object Recognition
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7044
Topic: Math
Published: 10/1/2003
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Geraldine S Cheok, Dianne M O'Leary
Abstract: This report discusses a general approach to reconstructing ground truth intensity images of bar codes that have been distorted by LADAR optics. The first part of this report describes the experimental data collection of several bar code images along ...

185. On Use of Bayesian Statistics to Make Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement Consistent
Topic: Math
Published: 9/1/2003
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, Albert W Jones
Abstract: The Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement recommends a standardized way of expressing uncertainty in measurement and provides a comprehensive approach for combining information to evaluate uncertainty in all kinds of measurements in s ...

186. An Optimization Approach to Multiple Sequence Alignment
Topic: Math
Published: 7/1/2003
Authors: Fern Y Hunt, Anthony J Kearsley, H H Wan
Abstract: The problem of multiple sequence alignment is recast as an optimization problem using Markov decision theory. One seeks to minimize the expected or average cost of alignment subject to data-derived constraints. In this setting the problem is equiva ...

187. NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions
Topic: Math
Published: 5/1/2003
Author: Daniel W Lozier
Abstract: NIST (formerly, National Bureau of Standards) has started an ambitious project that aims to produce a successor to Abramowitz and Stegun's {\em Handbook of Mathematical Functions}, published by the National Bureau of Standards in 1964 and reprinted b ...

188. Separating Signal From Noise in Global Warming
Topic: Math
Published: 3/12/2003
Author: Bert W Rust
Abstract: One argument often used against global warming is that the global temperature record is too noisy to allow a clear determination of the signal. This paper presents two models for the signal which suggest that: (1) the warming is accelerating, (2) th ...

189. A Linear Programming Based Algorithm for Multiple Sequence Alignments
Topic: Math
Published: 2/17/2003
Authors: Fern Y Hunt, Agnes (Abbie) O'Gallagher, Anthony J Kearsley

190. DIVERSE: A Framework for Building Extensible and Reconfigurable Device Independent Virtual Environments
Topic: Math
Published: 2/17/2003
Authors: John T. Kelso, L E Arsenault, Steven G Satterfield, Peter M. Ketcham, R D Kriz
Abstract: We present DIVERSE, a highly modular collection of complementary software packages designed to facilitate the creation of device independent virtual environments. DIVERSE is free/open source software; an API (Application Programming Interface) writte ...
