51. Estimating Critical Hopf Bifurcation Parameters for a Second Order DelayDifferential Equation with Application to Machine Tool Chatter
Topic: Modeling
Published: 5/1/2002
Author: David E. Gilsinn
Abstract: Nonlinear time delay differential equations are well known to have arisen in models in physiology, biology and population dynamics. They have also arisen in models of metal cutting processes. Machine tool chatter, from a process called regenerative c ...

52. Estimating Volumes of Near-spherical Molded Artifacts
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Modeling
Published: 5/3/2010
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Bruce R. Borchardt, Amelia Tebbe
Abstract: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is conducting research on developing reference lung cancer cancer lesions, called phantoms, to test computed tomography (CT) scanners and their software. FDA loaned two semi-spherical phantoms to the National In ...

53. Estimating Volumes of Simulated Lung Cancer Nodules
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7571
Topic: Modeling
Published: 7/15/2009
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Bruce R. Borchardt, Amelia Tebbe
Abstract: Lung cancer is a disease of uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Computed tomography (CT) shows promise in detecting lung cancers at earlier, more operable stages, when survival is better. CT scans generate multiple 2-D slice images of th ...

54. Evaluation of 3D Interest Point Detection Techniques via Human-generated Ground Truth
Topic: Modeling
Published: 6/29/2012
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Helin Dutagaci
Abstract: In this paper, we present an evaluation strategy based on human-generated ground truth to measure the performance of 3D interest point detection techniques. We provide quantitative evaluation measures that relate automatically detected interest point ...

55. Expansions for a fundamental solution of Laplace's equation on R^u3^ in 5-cyclidic harmonics
Topic: Modeling
Published: 10/14/2014
Authors: Howard S Cohl, Hans Volkmer
Abstract: We derive eigenfunction expansions for a fundamental solution of Laplace's equation in three-dimensional Euclidean space in 5-cyclidic coordinates. There are three such expansions in terms of internal and external 5-cyclidic harmonics of first, seco ...

56. Fast Iterative Solver for Convection-Diffusion Systems with Spectral Elements
Topic: Modeling
Published: 10/16/2009
Authors: Aaron Lott, Howard Elman
Abstract: We introduce a solver and preconditioning technique based on Domain Decomposition and the Fast Diagonalization Method that can be applied to tensor product based discretizations of the steady convection-diffusion equation. The method is based on iter ...

57. Fast Sequential Importance Sampling fo Estimate the Graph Reliability Polynomial
Topic: Modeling
Published: 11/5/2012
Authors: David G. Harris, Francis Sullivan, Isabel M Beichl
Abstract: The reliability polynomial of a graph measures the number of its connected subgraphs of various sizes. Algortihms based on sequential importance sampling (SIS) have been proposed to estimate a graph's reliahbility polynomial. We develop an improved ...

58. Feature Measures for the Segmentation of Neuronal Membrane using Machine Learning Algorithm
Topic: Modeling
Published: 1/6/2014
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Saadia S. Iftikhar
Abstract: In this paper, we present a Support Vector Machine (SVM) based pixel classifier for a semi-automated segmentation algorithm to detect neuronal membrane structures in stacks of electron microscopy images of brain tissue samples. This algorithm uses ...

59. Feature-preserved 3D Canonical Form
Topic: Modeling
Published: 7/28/2012
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Zhouhui Lian
Abstract: Abstract Measuring the dissimilarity between non-rigid objects is a challenging problem in 3D shape retrieval. One potential solution is to construct the models‰ 3D canonical forms (i.e., isometry-invariant representations in 3D Euclidean domain) on ...

60. First Variation of the General Curvature-dependent Surface Energy
Topic: Modeling
Published: 1/1/2012
Authors: Gunay Dogan, Ricardo H. Nochetto
Abstract: We consider general weighted surface energies, where the energies have the form of weighted integrals over a closed surface and the weight depends on the normal and the mean curvature of the surface. Energies of this form have applications in many ar ...
