11. A Binomial Approximation Method for the Ising Model
Topic: Math
Published: 5/21/2014
Authors: Isabel M Beichl, Amanda A. Streib, Noah S. Streib, Francis Sullivan
Abstract: A large portion of the complexity inherent to the Ising model can be captures with a trivial amount of computation. in this work, we support this claim by defining an approximation to the partition function and other thermodynamic quantities of the ...

12. Estimating Fault Detection Effectiveness
Topic: Math
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: David R Kuhn, Raghu N Kacker, Yu Lei
Abstract: [Poster] A t-way covering array can detect t-way faults, however they generally include other combinations beyond t-way as well. For example, a particular test set of all 5-way combinations is shown capable of detecting all seeded faults in a test pr ...

13. Adaptive Composite B-Spline Grid Generation for Interactive 3D Visualizations
Topic: Math
Published: 1/22/2014
Authors: Bonita V Saunders, Qiming Wang, Brian Antonishek
Abstract: We describe an adaptive grid generation technique based on the composition of tensor product B-spline mappings, T and Phi, where Phi maps the unit square onto itself and T maps the unit square onto the desired physical domain. Variational method ...

14. Combinatorial Test Generation for Software Product Lines Using Minimum Invalid Tuples
Topic: Math
Published: 1/9/2014
Authors: Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: A software product line is a set of software systems that share some common features. Several recent works have been reported that apply combinatorial testing, a very effective testing strategy to software product lines. A unique challenge in these w ...

15. Fault Localization Based on Failure-Inducing Combinations
Topic: Math
Published: 11/7/2013
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Combinatorial testing has been shown to be a very effective testing strategy. After a failure is detected, the next task is to identify the actual fault that causes the failure. In this paper, we present an approach to fault localization that le ...

16. Fourier, Gegenbauer and Jacobi expansions for a power-law fundamental solution of the polyharmonic equation and polyspherical addition theorems
Topic: Math
Published: 6/5/2013
Author: Howard S Cohl
Abstract: We develop complex Jacobi, Gegenbauer and Chebyshev polynomial expansions for the kernels associated with power-law fundamental solutions of the polyharmonic equation on d-dimensional Euclidean space. From these series representations we derive Fouri ...

17. Determining Mechanical Reliability of Brittle Materials
Topic: Math
Published: 4/18/2013
Authors: Stephen W. Freiman, Jeffrey T Fong
Abstract: The widespread existence of slow crack growth in most glasses and ceramics due to a stress-enhanced reaction between an external environment and strained bonds at a crack tip greatly complicates the challenge of assuring the reliability of components ...

18. An Input Space Modeling Methodology for Combinatorial Testing
Topic: Math
Published: 3/22/2013
Authors: Mehra N. Borazjany, Laleh Ghandehari, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: The input space of a system must be modeled before combinatorial testing can be applied to this system. The effectiveness of combinatorial testing to a large extent depends on the quality of the input space model. In this paper we introduce an input ...

19. Applying Combinatorial Testing to the Siemens Suite
Topic: Math
Published: 3/22/2013
Authors: Laleh Ghandehari, Mehra N. Borazjany, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Combinatorial testing has attracted a lot of attention from both industry and academia. A number of reports suggest that combinatorial testing can be effective for practical applications. However, there still seems to lack systematic, controlled stud ...

20. Five Examples of Assessment and Expression of Measurement Uncertainty
Topic: Math
Published: 2/12/2013
Author: Antonio M Possolo
Abstract: It is a long accepted tenet of scientific practice that every measurement result ought to include a statement of uncertainty associated with the measured value, and that such uncertainty should be propagated to derivative products. It is also widely ...
