1. Is the Factor of 10 Still Applicable Today?
Topic: Statistics
Published: 7/13/2016
Authors: Simone N Gittelson, John Simon Buckleton
Abstract: The assignment of the weight of DNA evidence depends on a number of factors (allele probability estimates, the population genetic model used, the value of the coancestry coefficient, etc.). One of these factors is the allele probability estimates fro ...

2. Bayesian Calibration of Transferable, Coarse-Grained Force Fields
Topic: Statistics
Published: 4/15/2016
Authors: Thomas William Rosch, Frederick R Phelan Jr., Paul N Patrone
Abstract: Generating and calibrating forces that are transferable across a range of state-points remains a challenging problem in coarse-grained (CG) molecular dynamics (MD). In this work, we present a Bayesian correction algorithm, inspired by ideas fro ...

3. Optimizing Hybrid Metrology: Rigorous Implementation of Bayesian and Combined Regression.
Topic: Statistics
Published: 11/12/2015
Authors: Mark Alexander Henn, Richard M Silver, John S Villarrubia, Nien F Zhang, Hui Zhou, Bryan M Barnes, Andras Vladar, Bin Ming
Abstract: Hybrid metrology, e.g. the combination of several measurement techniques to determine critical dimensions, is an important approach to meet the needs of semiconductor industry. A proper use of hybrid metrology may not only yield more reliable estimat ...

4. Simple Guide for Evaluating and Expressing the Uncertainty of NIST Measurement Results
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1900
Topic: Statistics
Published: 11/4/2015
Author: Antonio M Possolo
Abstract: The "Simple Guide" supplements, but does not replace NIST Technical Note 1297, whose techniques for uncertainty evaluation may continue to be used when there is no compelling reason to question their applicability and fitness for purpose, as enun ...

5. 10 V Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard and its Application in Direct Comparison with the Conventional Josephson Voltage Standard
Topic: Statistics
Published: 8/17/2015
Authors: Yi-hua Tang, James Wachter, Alain Rufenacht, Gerald J FitzPatrick, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: This paper briefly describes the working principle of the 10 V programmable Josephson voltage standard (PJVS) that was developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and how to use it in a direct comparison with a conventional ...

6. Ensemble Neural Network Model for Predicting the Energy Consumption of a Milling Machine
Topic: Statistics
Published: 7/31/2015
Authors: Ronay Ak, Moneer M Helu, Sudarsan Rachuri
Abstract: Accurate prediction of the energy consumption is critical for energy-efficient production systems. However, the majority of the existing prediction models aim at providing only point predictions and can be affected by the uncertainties in the mod ...

7. Use of Bayesian Statistics to Improve Optical Measurement Uncertainty by Combined Multi-Tool Metrology
Topic: Statistics
Published: 6/25/2015
Authors: Nien F Zhang, Richard M Silver, Hui Zhou, Bryan M Barnes
Abstract: Recently, there has been significant research investigating new optical technologies for dimensional metrology of features 32 nm in critical dimension and smaller. When modeling optical measurements a library of curves is assembled through the simula ...

8. The Axes of Random Infinitesimal Rotations and the Propagation of Orientation Uncertainty
Topic: Statistics
Published: 5/5/2015
Authors: Marek Franaszek, Mili Shah, Geraldine S Cheok, Kamel S Saidi
Abstract: Perception systems can measure the orientation of a solid 3D object; however, their measurements will contain some uncertainties. In many robotic applications, it is important to propagate the orientation uncertainties of a rigid object onto the unce ...

9. Experimental Bounds on Classical Random Field Theories
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/10/2014
Authors: Joffrey Kent Peters, Sergey V Polyakov, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Alternative theories to quantum mechanics motivate important fundamental tests of our understanding and description of the smallest physical systems. Here we place experimental limits on those classical field theories which result in power-depend ...

10. On Statistical Modeling and Forecasting of Energy Usage in Smart Grid
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/8/2014
Authors: Wei Yu, Dou An, David Wesley Griffith, Qingyu Yang, Guobin Xu
Abstract: Developing effective energy resource management in the smart grid is challenging because the entities in both the demand and supply sides experience various uncertainties. This paper addresses the issue of quantifying uncertainties on the energy ...
