11. Conformance of Image Features to Classifier Assumptions
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 7/27/2012
Authors: Julien Marc Amelot, Peter Bajcsy, Mary C Brady
Abstract: Cell measurements are derived frequently from the results of pixel classification and contiguous region segmentation of microscopy images. Image segmentation is accomplished by classifying image pixels based on high dimensional image features com ...

14. Ephemera
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 1/11/2010
Author: Isabel M Beichl
Abstract: An editorial on the growing importance of soft errors in software.

15. Improving the Efficiency of Markov Chain Analysis of Complex Distributed Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7744
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 12/20/2010
Author: Christopher E Dabrowski
Abstract: In large-scale distributed systems, the interactions of many independent components may lead to emergent global behaviors with unforeseen, often detrimental, outcomes. The increasing importance of distributed systems such as clouds and computing grid ...

16. Interactive, Quantitative Analysis of Scaffold Structure Using Immersive Visualization: Poster presentation
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 6/21/2006
Authors: Joy P Dunkers, John G Hagedorn, Adele P Peskin, John T. Kelso, Judith Ellen Terrill, Lori Henderson
Abstract: We describe a software system that enables the measurement and analysis of tissue engineering scaffold materials from three dimensional images that were generated with X-ray micro-computed tomography (μCT), segmented and converted to a polygonal ...

17. Is my car smarter than my cat?
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 5/1/2012
Author: Isabel M Beichl

18. Matching Observed Alpha Helix Lengths to Predicted Secondary Structure
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 11/1/2009
Authors: Brian Dale Cloteaux, Nadezhda Serova
Abstract: Because of the complexity in determining the 3D structure of a protein, the use of partial information determined from experimental techniques can greatly reduce the overall computational expense. We investigate the problem of matching experimentally ...
