161. A Pathwise Optimality Result For A Class of Unichain Markov Decision Processes
Topic: Math
Published: 2/1/2004
Author: Fern Y Hunt
Abstract: We begin this expository essay by reviewing with examples what a typical engineer already knows about statistics. We then consider a central question in engineering decision making, i.e., given a computer simulation of high-consequence systems, how ...

162. Parallel Programming with Interoperable MPI
Topic: Math
Published: 2/1/2004
Authors: William L George, John G Hagedorn, J E Devaney
Abstract: In this article we describe IMPI (Interoperable Message Passing Interface), a message passing protocol that allows you to easily run parallel programs across multiple clusters, SMPs (symmetric multiprocessors), parallel machines, personal computers, ...

163. Approximating Limit Cycles of a Van der Pol Equation with Delay
Topic: Math
Published: 1/15/2004
Author: David E. Gilsinn
Abstract: In this paper a theorem of Stokes is used to establish the existence of a periodic solution of a Van der Pol equation with fixed delay in the neighborhood of an approximating solution that satisfies a certain noncriticality condition.

164. Using Nanoscillatory Splines to Model Urban Environments
Topic: Math
Published: 1/15/2004
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Marjorie A McClain, Christoph Johann Witzgall

165. Using Nonoscillatory Splines to Model Urban Environments
Topic: Math
Published: 1/15/2004
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Marjorie A McClain, Christoph Johann Witzgall
Abstract: In this paper we introduce the notion of Lavery splines and examine their properties in the univariate case. We also discuss some of the details involved with computing these splines on irregularly spaced data.

166. Combining Information from Independent Similar Studies Using Random Effect Model
Topic: Math
Published: 1/1/2004
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: We compare leading statistical methods to combine information from independent similar studies using random effects model. One of the oldest methods is that of Cochran (1954). The method of Paule and Mandel (1982) was developed to determine the ...

167. Constructing Sequence Alignments from a Markov Decision Model with Estimated Parameter Values
Topic: Math
Published: 1/1/2004
Authors: Fern Y Hunt, Anthony J Kearsley, Agnes (Abbie) O'Gallagher
Abstract: Current methods for aligning biological sequences are based on dynamic programming algorithms. If large numbers of sequences or a number of long ones are to be aligned the required computations are expensive in memory and CPU time. In an attempt to b ...

169. The Dilogarithm Function for Complex Argument
Topic: Math
Published: 11/8/2003
Author: L C. Maximon
Abstract: This paper summarizes the basic properties of the Euler dilogarithm function, often referred to as the Spence function. These include integral representations, series expansions, linear and quadratic transformations, functional relations, numerical v ...

170. Statistical Interpretation of Key Comparison Reference Value and Degrees of Equivalence
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Math
Published: 11/1/2003
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, Raju Vsnu Datla, Albert C Parr
Abstract: This paper responds to comments received by the authors on the paper, Combined Result and Associated Uncertainty from Interlaboratory Evaluations Based on the ISO Guide that appeared in Metrologia, 2002, 39, 279-293.
