11. 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 ...

12. 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 ...

13. Contact function, uniform-thickness shell volume, and convexity measure for 3D star-shaped random particles
Topic: Software
Published: 3/15/2013
Authors: Edward Joseph Garboczi, Jeffrey W Bullard
Abstract: Using a spherical harmonic series, the three-dimensional shape of star-shaped particles can be represented mathematically as readily as can a sphere, cube, or ellipsoid. In principle, any particle parameter, such as volume, surface area, moment of in ...

14. 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 ...

15. Ave Atque Vale
Topic: Software
Published: 11/1/2012
Author: Isabel M Beichl

16. Fitting Weighted Total Least-Squares Planes and Parallel Planes to Support Tolerancing Standards
Topic: Software
Published: 10/19/2012
Authors: Craig M Shakarji, Vijay Srinivasan
Abstract: We present elegant algorithms for fitting 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 is reduced to a ...

17. An evaluation of local shape descriptors for 3D shape retrieval
Topic: Software
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 ...

18. Review: Biological Imaging Software Tools
Topic: Software
Published: 8/29/2012
Authors: Anne L Plant, Kevin Eliceiri, Anne Carpenter
Abstract: Few technologies are more widespread in modern biological laboratories than imaging by microscopy. Advancements in optical technologies and instrumentation over the past twenty years have led to massive improvements in the resolution, specificity, d ...

19. A New Convexity Measurement for 3D Meshes
Topic: Software
Published: 6/16/2012
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Zhouhui Lian
Abstract: This paper presents a novel convexity measurement for 3D meshes. The new convexity measure is calculated by minimizing the ratio of the summed area of valid regions in a mesh‰s six views, which are projected on faces of the bounding box whose edg ...

20. Isolating Failure-Inducing Combinations in Combinatorial Testing using Test Augmentation and Classification
Topic: Software
Published: 4/21/2012
Authors: Kiran Shakya, Tao Xie, Nuo Li, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Combinatorial Testing (CT) is a systematic way of sampling input parameters of the software under test (SUT). A t-way combinatorial test set can exercise all behaviors of the SUT caused by interactions between t input parameters or less. Although com ...
