As an extension of the notion of an L-g spline, three mathematical structures called LM-g splines of types, I, II and II are introduced. (partial abstract)...
Sequential gradient-restoration algorithm for optimal control problems with general boundary conditions
This thesis considers the numerical solution of two classes of optimal control problems, called Problem P1 and Problem P2 for easy identification. Problem P1 involves a functional I subject to differential constraints and ...
On a Class of Minimum Energy Controls Related to Spline Functions
The problem of determining a minimum energy control for a dynamically interconnected set of p single-input single-output finite-dimensional linear time-varying dynamical systems, for which the outputs are constrained to ...
Optimization Techniques for Feature Extraction in Automatic Pattern Recognition
This report summarizes the work performed under the AFOSR grant 75-2777 over the almost five year period during which the grant was in effect.
Design of Optimal Feature Extractors by Mathematical Programming Techniques
In an automatic pattern recognition system, the processor that selects and measures features fo the data, on the basis of which classification is made, is called a "feature selector" or "feature extractor". This paper ...
Feature Extraction Techniques for Classification and Identification of Spectral Signatures
Some of the results obtained at Rice University on the extraction of features from spectral signatures for the purpose of classifying and identifying these signatures are described.
An Identification Scheme for the Determination of Systemic Arterial Load Parameters
An identification scheme is developed for the determination of several parameters of a modified "Windkessel" model of the systemic arterial system for an individual patient undergoing cardiac catheterization. The scheme ...
Computer Controlled Intracavity Frequency Doubling of a CW Dye Ring Laser
The development of a computer controlled tunable ultraviolet spectrometer utilizing intracavity second harmonic generation in a single frequency CW dye ring laser is reported. With 5 W of argon ion laser pump power at 514.5 ...
Solution of the Forward and Inverse Problems Associated with the Potential Field of a Single Active Fiber in a Volume Conductor
A solution of Laplace's equation relating the transmembrane potential distribution of an active fiber in a volume conductor to its extracellular field distribution utilizing a Fourier transform method  has been reformulated ...
Results on Distributed Processor Scheduling with Limited Memory
This paper is a study of scheduling on a 2-processor distributed system when one processor has a limited memory. A program is assumed to consist of a set of sequentially executing modules and is represented by Stone's ...
