11. Computation of Complex Airy Functions and Zeros using Asymptotics and Differential Equation
Topic: Software
Published: 12/1/2004
Authors: Bruce R Fabijonas, Daniel W Lozier, Frank William John Olver

12. 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 ...

13. Cut it out!
Topic: Software
Published: 5/1/2009
Authors: Isabel M Beichl, Francis Sullivan
Abstract: This is a tutorial article on a probabilistic method for finding minimum cut sets of a connected graph.

14. Efficient and Robust Optimization for building energy simulation
Topic: Software
Published: 6/15/2016
Authors: Shokouh Pourarian, Jin Wen, Anthony J Kearsley, Amanda J Pertzborn
Abstract: Efficiently, robustly and accurately solving large sets of structured, non-linear algebraic and differential equations is one of the most computationally expensive steps in the dynamic simulation of building energy systems. Here, the efficiency, ...

15. 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 ...

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. Gauging the Repeatability of 3D Imaging Systems by Sphere Fitting
Topic: Software
Published: 9/30/2009
Authors: Marek Franaszek, Geraldine S Cheok, Kamel S Saidi
Abstract: Multiple scans of the same object acquired with 3D imaging system (e.g., laser scanner) in the same experimental conditions could provide valuable information about the instrument s performance (e.g., stability, existence of bias, measurement error). ...

18. 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 ...

19. 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 ...

20. 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 ...
