11. Allocating Attribute-Specific Information-Gathering Resources to Improve Selection Decisions
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/8/2013
Authors: Dennis D Leber, Jeffery W Herrmann
Abstract: When collecting data to select an alternative from a finite set of alternatives that are described by multiple attributes, one must allocate effort to activities that provide information about the value of each attribute. This is a particularly rele ...

12. Testing Equality of Cell Populations Based on Shape and Geodesic Distance
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/3/2013
Authors: Robert Charles Hagwood, Javier Bernal, Michael W Halter, John T Elliott
Abstract: Image cytometry has emerged as a valuable in-vitro screening tool and advances in automated microscopy have made it possible to readily analyze large cellular populations of image data. A statistical procedure to study homogeneity of such data ...

13. Decision Analysis Methods for Selecting Consumer Services with Attribute Value Uncertainty
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/1/2013
Authors: Dennis D Leber, Jeffery W Herrmann
Abstract: The basic risky decision is defined as a decision for which an uncertain event, in addition to the alternative selected, defines the outcome. Beyond the uncertain event, additional uncertainties can enter a decision including the uncertainty in the ...

14. Neutron Tomography of a Fuel Cell: Statistical Learning Implementation of a Penalized Likelihood Method
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/15/2013
Authors: Kevin J Coakley, Dominic F. (Dominic F.) Vecchia, Daniel S Hussey, David L Jacobson
Abstract: At the NIST Neutron Imaging Facility, we collect neutron projection data for both the dry and wet states of a Proton-Exchange-Membrane (PEM) fuel cell. Transmitted neutrons captured in a scintillator doped with Lithium-6 produce scintillation li ...

15. Applying the Hedonic Method
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1811
Topic: Statistics
Published: 9/18/2013
Author: Stanley W Gilbert
Abstract: Often, advances in measurement science will enable the development of new product innovations. When trying to estimate the value of the benefits of an advance in measurement science, it can be difficult to estimate the value of those new product inn ...

16. Statistical Analysis of Single PPTA Fibers
Topic: Statistics
Published: 7/28/2013
Authors: Nathanael A Heckert, Jae Hyun Kim, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Discuss statistical methods used for analysis of single fiber tensile strength tests. Kernel density plots and quantile-quantile plots were used to graphically analyze the data. Fiber strength was modeled using 2-parameter Weibull, 3-parameter Weib ...

17. Hybrid shape descriptor and meta similarity generation for non-rigid and partial 3D model retrieval
Topic: Statistics
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 ...

18. Uncertainty Machine --- User's Manual
Topic: Statistics
Published: 7/10/2013
Authors: Antonio M Possolo, Thomas Victor Emmanuel Lafarge
Abstract: NIST's Uncertainty Machine is a software application to evaluate the measurement uncertainty associated with an output quantity defined by a measurement model of the form y = f(x[1],...,x[n]), where the real-valued function f is specified fully and ...

19. Boltzmann's H-Function and Diffusion Processes
Topic: Statistics
Published: 5/15/2013
Authors: Steven P Lund, Joseph Bunton Hubbard, Michael W Halter
Abstract: There exists a generalization of Boltzmann's $H$-function that allows for non-uniformly populated stationary states which may exist far from thermodynamic equilibrium. Here we describe a method for obtaining a generalized or collective diffusion coef ...

20. Phase-coded volume holographic gratings for spatial-spectral imaging filters
Topic: Statistics
Published: 2/15/2013
Author: John Lu
Abstract: We present a design of phase contrast filters embedded in a three-dimensional (3D) pupil to form phase-coded volume holographic gratings (VHG) for spatial-spectral imaging. The phase-coded VHG improves image contrast and results in strong filtering p ...
