11. A New Analysis of the False-Positive Rate of a Bloom Filter
Topic: Math
Published: 10/15/2010
Authors: Ken Christensen, Allen L Roginsky, Miguel Jimeno
Abstract: A Bloom filter is a space-efficient data structure used for probabilistic set membership testing. When testing an object for set membership, a Bloom filter may give a false positive. The analysis of the false positive rate is key to understanding the ...

12. A Pathwise Optimality Result For A Class of Unichain Markov Decision Processes
Topic: Math
Published: 2/1/2004
Author: Fern Y Hunt
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 ...

13. 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 ( ...

14. A Survey of Binary Covering Arrays
Topic: Math
Published: 4/7/2011
Authors: James F Lawrence, Raghu N Kacker, Yu Lei, David R Kuhn, Michael Forbes
Abstract: Two-valued covering arrays of strength t are 0--1 matrices having the property that for each t columns and each of the possible 2t sequences of t 0's and 1's, there exists a row having that sequence in that set of t columns. Covering arrays are an im ...

15. A Survey of Tables of Probability Distributions
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: of
Topic: Math
Published: 1/3/2005
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, I Olkin

16. ACTS: A Combinatorial Test Generation Tool
Topic: Math
Published: 3/22/2013
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: In this paper, we introduce a combinatorial test generation tool called Advanced Combinatorial Testing System (or ACTS). ACTS supports t-way combinatorial test generation with several advanced features such as mixed-strength test generation and c ...

17. Active Multimedia Documents for Mobile Services
Topic: Math
Published: 12/7/1998
Author: O E. Kia
Abstract: Multimedia content is designed for many purposes and the services that are associated with them rely heavily on technologies that address representation, processing, and transmission of that content. This paper presents a new model that refines the m ...

18. Adaptive Composite B-Spline Grid Generation for Interactive 3D Visualizations
Topic: Math
Published: 1/22/2014
Authors: Bonita V Saunders, Qiming Wang, Brian Antonishek
Abstract: We describe an adaptive grid generation technique based on the composition of tensor product B-spline mappings, T and Phi, where Phi maps the unit square onto itself and T maps the unit square onto the desired physical domain. Variational method ...

19. Adaptive Preimage Resistance Analysis Revisited: Requirements, Subtleties and Implications
Topic: Math
Published: 4/16/2012
Authors: Dong H. Chang, Moti Yung
Abstract: In the last few years, the need to design new cryptographic hash functions has led to the intense study of when desired hash multi-properties are preserved or assured under compositions and domain extensions. In this area, it is important to identify ...

20. Algorithms and Codes for the Macdonald Function: Recent Progress and Comparisons
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6596
Topic: Math
Published: 2/1/2003
Authors: B R Fabijonas, Daniel W Lozier, J M Rappoport
Abstract: The modified Bessel function K^di{nu}^{chi}, also known as the Macdonald function, finds application in the Kontorovich-Lebedev integral transform when {chi} and {nu} are real and positive. In this paper, a comparison of three codes for computing th ...
