**Computing Network Reliability Coefficients**
**Topic:** Math

**Published:** 12/1/2011

**Authors:** Elizabeth R Moseman, Isabel M Beichl, Francis Sullivan

**Abstract:** When a network is modeled by a graph and edges of the graph remain reliable with a given probability p, the probability of the graph remaining connected is called the reliability of the network. One form of the reliability polynomial has as coefficie

**Optimality Conditions for a Hierarchical Control Problem Governed by a PDE**
**Topic:** Math

**Published:** 11/15/2011

**Author:** Anthony J Kearsley

**Abstract:** We consider the approximate pointwise control of a linear parabolic system with multiple targets.
Assuming a hierarchy among the objectives, we derive optimality conditions for a particular test problem and provide numerical results.

**A Special Functions Handbook for the Digital Age**
**Topic:** Math

**Published:** 8/1/2011

**Authors:** Ronald F Boisvert, Charles W Clark, Daniel W Lozier, Frank William John Olver

**Abstract:** The NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions (DLMF) is a reference work providing information on the properties of the special functions of applied mathematics. It is a successor to the highly successful NBS Handbook of Mathematical Functions (

**Only non-informative Bayesian prior distributions agree with the GUM Type A evaluations of input quantities**
**Topic:** Math

**Published:** 6/21/2011

**Author:** Raghu N Kacker

**Abstract:** The Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM) is self-consistent when Bayesian statistics is used for the Type A evaluations and the standard deviation of the posterior state-of-knowledge distribution is used as the Bayesian standar

**Rapid Monte Carlo SI Mulations Using Parallel Computing and a Client-server Model **
**Topic:** Math

**Published:** 6/21/2011

**Authors:** Raghu N Kacker, Ruediger Kessel

**Abstract:** Processors with multiple CPU cores have become widely available. Therefore it is useful to parallelize the Monte Carlo simulation process in the context of metrology. Different approaches for parallel computing including Monte Carlo simulations are a

**Division Polynomials for Jacobi Quartic Curves**
**Topic:** Math

**Published:** 6/13/2011

**Author:** Dustin Moody

**Abstract:** In this paper we find division polynomials for Jacobi quartics. These curves are an alternate model for elliptic curves to the more common Weierstrass equation. Division polynomials for Weierstrass curves are well known, and the division polynomials

**On Parameter Differentiation for Integral Representations of Associated Legendre Functions**
**Topic:** Math

**Published:** 5/24/2011

**Author:** Howard S Cohl

**Abstract:** For integral representations of associated Legendre functions in terms of modified Bessel functions, we establish justification for differentiation under the integral sign with respect to parameters. With this justification, derivatives for associate

**Bayesian uncertainty analysis for a regression model versus application of GUM Supplement 1 to the least-squares estimate**
**Topic:** Math

**Published:** 5/5/2011

**Authors:** Blaza Toman, Clemens Elster

**Abstract:** Application of least-squares as, for instance, in curve fitting is an important tool of data analysis in metrology. It is tempting to employ the supplement 1 to the GUM (GUM-S1) to evaluate the uncertainty associated with the resulting parameter esti
