11. Algorithms and Codes for the Macdonald Function: Recent Progress and Comparisons
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6596
Topic: Software
Published: 2/1/2003
Authors: B R Fabijonas, Daniel W Lozier, J M Rappoport
Abstract: The modified Bessel function K^di{nu}^{chi}, also known as the Macdonald function, finds application in the Kontorovich-Lebedev integral transform when {chi} and {nu} are real and positive. In this paper, a comparison of three codes for computing th ...

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. 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 ...

14. An Interaction-based Test Sequence Generation Approach for Testing Web Applications
Topic: Software
Published: 12/3/2008
Authors: Wenhua Wang, Sreedevi Sampath, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Web applications often use dynamic pages that interact with each other by accessing shared objects, e.g., session objects. Interactions between dynamic pages need to be carefully tested, as they may give rise to subtle faults that cannot be detected ...

15. An Optimization Approach to Multiple Sequence Alignment
Topic: Software
Published: 7/1/2003
Authors: Fern Y Hunt, Anthony J Kearsley, H H Wan
Abstract: The problem of multiple sequence alignment is recast as an optimization problem using Markov decision theory. One seeks to minimize the expected or average cost of alignment subject to data-derived constraints. In this setting the problem is equiva ...

16. 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 ...

17. 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 ...

18. Applying Combinatorial Testing to the Siemens Suite
Topic: Software
Published: 3/20/2013
Authors: David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Combinatorial testing has attracted a lot of attention from both industry and academia. A number of reports suggest that combinatorial testing can be effective for practical applications. However, there still seems to lack systematic, controlled stud ...

19. Artificial Intelligence Tools for Failure Event Data Management and Probability Risk Analysis for Failure Prevention
Topic: Software
Published: 10/25/2009
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Pedro Vincente Marcal
Abstract: Over the last thirty years, much research has been done on the development of failure event databases and fatigue modeling of crack growth in pressure vessels and piping. According to a USNRC report (NUREG/CR6674, 2000), results of a fatigue crack g ...

20. Automated Peak Picking and Integration Algorithm for Mass Spectral Data
Topic: Software
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Anthony J Kearsley, William E Wallace III, Javier Bernal, Charles Martin Guttman
