31. Constructing Sequence Alignments from a Markov Decision Model with Estimated Parameter Values
Topic: Software
Published: 1/1/2004
Authors: Fern Y Hunt, Anthony J Kearsley, Agnes (Abbie) O'Gallagher
Abstract: Current methods for aligning biological sequences are based on dynamic programming algorithms. If large numbers of sequences or a number of long ones are to be aligned the required computations are expensive in memory and CPU time. In an attempt to b ...

32. Counting on Today's Students
Topic: Software
Published: 9/3/2012
Author: Isabel M Beichl

33. 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.

34. Evaluation of 3D Interest Point Detection Techniques via Human-generated Ground Truth
Topic: Software
Published: 6/29/2012
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Helin Dutagaci
Abstract: In this paper, we present an evaluation strategy based on human-generated ground truth to measure the performance of 3D interest point detection techniques. We provide quantitative evaluation measures that relate automatically detected interest point ...

35. 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 ...

36. Fast Sequential Importance Sampling fo Estimate the Graph Reliability Polynomial
Topic: Software
Published: 11/5/2012
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 ...

37. Feature-preserved 3D Canonical Form
Topic: Software
Published: 7/28/2012
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Zhouhui Lian
Abstract: Abstract Measuring the dissimilarity between non-rigid objects is a challenging problem in 3D shape retrieval. One potential solution is to construct the models‰ 3D canonical forms (i.e., isometry-invariant representations in 3D Euclidean domain) on ...

38. 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 ...

39. Gauging the Repeatability of 3D Imaging Systems by Sphere Fitting
Topic: Software
Published: 9/30/2009
Authors: Marek Franaszek, Geraldine S Cheok, Kamel Shawki 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). ...

40. Hamiltonian Paths Through Two- and Three-Dimensional Grids
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: of
Topic: Software
Published: 4/1/2005
Author: William F Mitchell
Abstract: This paper addresses the existence of Hamiltonian paths and cycles in two-dimensional grids consisting of triangles or quadrilaterals, and three-dimensional grids consisting of tetrahedra or hexahedra. The paths and cycles may be constrained to pass ...
