21. Permanents, alpha-permanents and Sinkhorn balancing
Topic: Software
Published: 6/28/2014
Authors: F Sullivan, Isabel M Beichl
Abstract: The method of Sinkhorn balancing that starts with a non-negative square matrix and iterates to produce a related doubly stochastic matrix has been used with some success to estimate the values of the permanent in some cases of physical interest, Ho ...

22. 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 ...

23. Salient Local 3D Features for 3D Shape Retrieval
Topic: Software
Published: 4/7/2011
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Asim Wagan
Abstract: In this paper we describe a new formulation for the 3D salient local features based on the voxel grid inspired by the Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT). We use it to identify the salient keypoints (invariant points) on a 3D voxelized model and ...

24. Simple FMM libraries for electrostatics, slow viscous flow, and frequency-domain wave propagation
Topic: Software
Published: 8/1/2015
Authors: Zydrunas Gimbutas, Leslie Greengard
Abstract: We have implemented easy to use FMM libraries for the Laplace, Helmholtz and Stokes equations in two and three dimensions. The codes are based on a new method for applying translation operators and provide reasonable performance on either single core ...

25. Test Tool for Industrial Ethernet Network Performance
Topic: Software
Published: 6/5/2009
Authors: James D Gilsinn, Freemon Johnson
Abstract: The number of devices that implement Ethernet interfaces on the factory floor is growing at an exponential rate along with the adoption of industrial-grade Ethernet networks on the plant floor. In addition to the sheer number of devices using indust ...

26. 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 ...

27. User Guide to CADMUS, a Simplified Parallel Routine for Laplacian-Fractal Growth
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6180
Topic: Software
Published: 6/1/1998
Authors: H A Fowler, J E Devaney, John G Hagedorn
