171. 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.

172. 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 ...

173. 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 ...

175. 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 ...

176. 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.

177. The Normalized Reduced Form and Cell Mathematical Tools for Lattice Analysis--Symmetry and Similarity
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Math
Published: 11/1/2003
Author: Alan D. Mighell
Abstract: To intelligently and effectively use the crystallographic databases, dierse mathematical and computer tools are required that can delve into the nature of a given lattice or that can cut across a set of lattices to elucidate various types of interlat ...

178. Deconvolving LADAR Images Of Bar Codes for Construction Site Object Recognition
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7044
Topic: Math
Published: 10/1/2003
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Geraldine S Cheok, Dianne M O'Leary
Abstract: This report discusses a general approach to reconstructing ground truth intensity images of bar codes that have been distorted by LADAR optics. The first part of this report describes the experimental data collection of several bar code images along ...

179. On Use of Bayesian Statistics to Make Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement Consistent
Topic: Math
Published: 9/1/2003
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, Albert W Jones
Abstract: The Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement recommends a standardized way of expressing uncertainty in measurement and provides a comprehensive approach for combining information to evaluate uncertainty in all kinds of measurements in s ...

180. An Optimization Approach to Multiple Sequence Alignment
Topic: Math
Published: 7/1/2003
Authors: Fern Y Hunt, Anthony J Kearsley, H H Wan
Abstract: The problem of multiple sequence alignment is recast as an optimization problem using Markov decision theory. One seeks to minimize the expected or average cost of alignment subject to data-derived constraints. In this setting the problem is equiva ...
