1. A Comparison of hp-adaptive Strategies for Elliptic Partial Differential Equations
Topic: Software
Published: 3/5/2014
Authors: William F Mitchell, Marjorie A McClain
Abstract: The hp version of the finite element method (hp-FEM) combined with adaptive mesh refinement is a particularly efficient method for solving partial differential equations because it can achieve a convergence rate that is exponential in the number of ...

2. Analysis for Dynamic Metrology
Topic: Software
Published: 1/30/2014
Authors: Andrew M Dienstfrey, Paul D Hale
Abstract: Diverse measurement contexts require estimates of time varying quantities. Ideally the measurement device responds to signal variations significantly more rapidly than the modulation of the signal itself. If so, then well-developed techniques may b ...

3. Combinatorial Test Generation for Software Product Lines Using Minimum Invalid Tuples
Topic: Software
Published: 1/9/2014
Authors: Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: A software product line is a set of software systems that share some common features. Several recent works have been reported that apply combinatorial testing, a very effective testing strategy to software product lines. A unique challenge in these w ...

4. A comparison of methods for sketch-based 3D shape retrieval
Topic: Software
Published: 12/13/2013
Author: Afzal A Godil
Abstract: Sketch-based 3D shape retrieval has become an important research topic in content-based 3D object retrieval. To foster this research area, two Shape Retrieval Contest (SHREC) tracks on this topic have been organized by us in 2012 and 2013 based on ...

5. Exploring Local Features and the Bag-of-Visual-Words Approach for BioImage Classification
Topic: Software
Published: 11/5/2013
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Asim Wagan
Abstract: With recent advances in imaging technologies large numbers of bioimages are currently being acquired. Automated classification of these bio-images is a very important and challenging problem. Here we investigate the capabilities of local features a ...

6. 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 ...

7. 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 ...

8. 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 ...

9. 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) ...

10. An Input Space Modeling Methodology for Combinatorial Testing
Topic: Software
Published: 3/20/2013
Authors: David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: The input space of a system must be modeled before combinatorial testing can be applied to this system. The effectiveness of combinatorial testing to a large extent depends on the quality of the input space model. In this paper we introduce an input ...
