21. An Optimization Approach to Multiple Sequence Alignment
Topic: Modeling
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 ...

22. An evaluation of local shape descriptors for 3D shape retrieval
Topic: Modeling
Published: 9/26/2012
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Sarah Y. Tang
Abstract: As the usage of 3D models increases, so does the importance of developing accurate 3D shape retrieval algorithms. A common approach is to calculate a shape descriptor for each object, which can then be compared to determine two objects‰ similarity. H ...

23. Antiderivatives and integral representations of associated Legendre functions with {mu}{math equal}{+or-}{nu} equal to within a sign
Topic: Modeling
Published: 1/16/2013
Author: Howard S Cohl
Abstract: We obtain antiderivatives and complex integral representations for associated Legendre functions and Ferrers functions (associated Legendre functions on-the-cut) of the first and second kind with degree and order equal to within a sign.

24. Approximating Limit Cycles of a Van der Pol Equation with Delay
Topic: Modeling
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.

25. Approximating Periodic Solutions of Autonomous Delay Differential Equations
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7375
Topic: Modeling
Published: 11/30/2006
Author: David E. Gilsinn
Abstract: Machine tool chatter has been characterized as isolated periodic solutions or limit cycles of delay differential equations. Determining the amplitude and frequency of the limit cycle is sometimes crucial to understanding and controlling the stability ...

26. Artificial Intelligence Tools for Failure Event Data Management and Probability Risk Analysis for Failure Prevention
Topic: Modeling
Published: 10/25/2009
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Pedro Vincente Marcal
Abstract: Over the last thirty years, much research has been done on the development of failure event databases and fatigue modeling of crack growth in pressure vessels and piping. According to a USNRC report (NUREG/CR6674, 2000), results of a fatigue crack g ...

27. Assessing microscale heterogeneity in batches of reference materials using microbeam XRF
Topic: Modeling
Published: 5/17/2011
Authors: John L Molloy, John R Sieber
Abstract: Principal component analysis (PCA), microbeam X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (µXRF), and Monte Carlo simulations are used to illustrate a methodology for assessing the sample microheterogeneity for large sets of materials. PCA is demonstrated to de ...

28. Biological Cell Feature Identification by a Modified Watershed-Merging Algorithm
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Topic: Modeling
Published: 11/24/2010
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Kiran Bhadriraju, John T Elliott
Abstract: Biological cells are composed of many subsystems and organelles. The subsystem called the cytoskeleton is composed of long rod-shaped structures. They give the cell form and help attach the cell to the substrate and neighbors. One of the filaments is ...

29. Bubble motion and size variation during thermal migration with phase change
Topic: Modeling
Published: 1/1/2013
Authors: Asha K. Nurse, Geoffrey B McFadden, Sam Ray Coriell
Abstract: An analysis of the motion of a spherical bubble in a two-phase, single component system with a vertical linear temperature gradient is presented. The model for the migration of an immiscible bubble under the effects of buoyancy and thermocapillari ...

30. COMPARISON OF TWO DIMENSION-REDUCTION METHODS FOR NETWORK SIMULATION MODELS
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 116-5
Topic: Modeling
Published: 10/5/2011
Authors: Kevin L Mills, James J Filliben
Abstract: Experimenters characterize the behavior of simulation models for data communications networks by measuring multiple responses under selected parameter combinations. The resulting multivariate data may include redundant responses reflecting aspects of ...
