1. Methodology and Calculator for High Precision Regression Fits of Pyranometer Angular Responsivities and the Associated Uncertainties
Topic: Software
Published: 6/23/2015
Author: Matthew T Boyd
Abstract: An easy to implement method for accurately utilizing pyranometer incidence angle dependent calibration factors, or responsivities (uV/W/m2), along with the associated uncertainties has been developed. This method uses algorithms for creating single p ...

2. Permanents, alpha-permanents and Sinkhorn balancing
Topic: Software
Published: 6/28/2014
Authors: F Sullivan, Isabel M Beichl
Abstract: The method of Sinkhorn balancing that starts with a non-negative square matrix and iterates to produce a related doubly stochastic matrix has been used with some success to estimate the values of the permanent in some cases of physical interest, Ho ...

3. An Empirical Comparison of Combinatorial and Random Testing
Topic: Software
Published: 4/4/2014
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Some conflicting results have been reported on the comparison between t-way combinatorial testing and random testing. In this paper, we report a new study that applies t-way and random testing to the Siemens suite. In particular, we investigate the s ...

4. Combinatorial (t-way) testing for software: an adaptation of design of experiments
Topic: Software
Published: 11/1/2013
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Most modern instruments of measurements for science, engineering, and commerce have embedded software. Also software is required for data handling and mathematical computations. Therefore verification and validation of software used in metrology is i ...

5. Theory and Algorithms for Weighted Total Least-Squares Fitting of Lines, Planes, and Parallel Planes to Support Tolerancing Standards
Topic: Software
Published: 8/16/2013
Authors: Craig M Shakarji, Vijay Srinivasan
Abstract: We present the theory and algorithms for fitting a line, a plane, two parallel planes (corresponding to a slot or a slab) or many parallel planes in a total (orthogonal) least-squares sense to coordinate data that is weighted. Each of these problems ...

6. Hybrid shape descriptor and meta similarity generation for non-rigid and partial 3D model retrieval
Topic: Software
Published: 7/26/2013
Author: Afzal A Godil
Abstract: Non-rigid and partial 3D model retrieval are two significant and challenging research directions in the field of 3D model retrieval. Little work has been done in proposing a hybrid shape descriptor that works for both retrieval scenarios, let alone ...

7. A General Conformance Testing Framework for IEEE 11073 PHD's Communication Model
Topic: Software
Published: 5/31/2013
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, Linbin Yu, Yu Lei, David R Kuhn, Ram D Sriram, Kevin G Brady
Abstract: ISO/IEEE 11073 Personal Health Data (IEEE 11073 PHD) is a set of standards that addresses the interoperability of personal healthcare devices. As an important part of IEEE 11073 PHD, ISO/IEEE 1107-20601 optimized exchange protocol (IEEE 11073-20601) ...

8. ACTS: A Combinatorial Test Generation Tool
Topic: Software
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 ...

9. An Efficient Algorithm for Constraint Handling in Combinatorial Test Generation
Topic: Software
Published: 3/18/2013
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Combinatorial testing has been shown to be a very effective testing strategy. An important problem in combinatorial testing is dealing with constraints, i.e., restrictions that must be satisfied in order for a test to be valid. In this paper, we ...

10. Fast Sequential Importance Sampling to Estimate the Graph Reliability Polynomial
Topic: Software
Published: 11/8/2012
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 ...
