A factoring of a graph G = (V,E) is a collection of spanning subgraphs F1, F2, ?, Fk, known as factors into which the edge set E has been partitioned. A dominating set of a graph is a set of nodes such that every node in the graph is either...
Traditional critical path methods imply the assumption of unlimited availability of resources. Mathematical models and heuristic techniques are two alternatives that consider resource limitiation to sequence the activities of a project. This...
The usage and applications of solare energy are numerous; however, it's still in its infancy. The subject matter discusses two applications of solar energy, a "Solar Augmented Heated System" and a "Solar Assisted Heat Pump." The solar augmented...
The development of distributed applications has not progressed as rapidly as its enabling technologies. In part, this is due to the difficulty of reasoning about such complex systems. In contrast to sequential systems, parallel systems give rise to...
This research addressess emissions of hexavalent chromium mist from hard chromium electroplating operations. Most of these emissions are typically captured by a ventilation stack and directed to a pollution control device; those which escape...
A binary tree coding scheme is a bijection mapping a set of binary trees to a set of integer tuples called codewords. One problem considered in the literature is that of listing the codewords for n-node binary trees, such that successive codewords...
The major problem facing air transportation for the next decade is aircraft noise. The noise level due to the operation of large ject aircraft has created a very serious annoyance problem to the poeople living near of adjacent to jet airports. ...
There is a great need to automatically segment, categorize, and annotate video data, and to develop efficient tools for browsing and searching. We believe that the categorization of videos can be achieved by exploring the concepts and meanings of...
Any structural analysis which gives stresses and displacements for some predefined structure is governed by some physical domain of loading, geometry and boundary conditions. Let this domain be called the structures "problem space." In applying...
Associative processors, parallel processors, content addressable parallel processors, networks, and other architectures have been around the computing scene as "Distributed Processing", for some time now. Several hundred papers have been written...
The Motorola Company has developed a microprocessor called the M6800 Microprocessor. While the microprocessor is being configured, it is general practice to develop the software at the same time. This is where simulation of the proposed hardware...
This paper presents a method of simulating various noise sources in a Weapons Fire Simulator System which has been modeled as an Optical Communication Channel. This Weapons Fire Simulator System is composed of laser transmitters mounted on weapons...
The introduction of a new checkout language at Kennedy Space Center has required more effort to create test and operations software than anticipated. The new language is called GOAL, for Ground Operations Aerospace Language. The feasibility of a...
Random-accessmemory (RAM) testing to detect unrestricted pattern-sensitive faults (PSFs) is impractical due to the size of the memory checking dequence required. A formal model for restricted PSFs in RAMs called adjacent-pattern interference...
In the design of an elastic structure, a major consideration is the overall stability of the system under axial load or a combination of an axial load and bending moment. In first-order analysis the effects of axial forces on the stiffness...
A computer model has been developed for the purpose of allocating funds, by department, within a university. This model categorizes each class as one of three types—lecture, problem solving, or laboratory. A standard class size is assigned to each...
This thesis describes a design for a multi-computer communication system using a shared memory. The design is implemented using the Motorola EXORset 30/DS35 development systems. The primary use for the shared memory is to act as a message center...
