21. 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 ...

22. ACTS: A Combinatorial Test Generation Tool
Topic: Math
Published: 3/22/2013
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: In this paper, we introduce a combinatorial test generation tool called Advanced Combinatorial Testing System (or ACTS). ACTS supports t-way combinatorial test generation with several advanced features such as mixed-strength test generation and c ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. An Efficient Algorithm for Constraint Handling in Combinatorial Test Generation
Topic: Math
Published: 3/18/2013
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Combinatorial testing has been shown to be a very effective testing strategy. An important problem in combinatorial testing is dealing with constraints, i.e., restrictions that must be satisfied in order for a test to be valid. In this paper, we ...

26. 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 ...

27. Alternative methods of latent fingerprint enhancement and metrics for comparing them
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7910
Topic: Math
Published: 1/14/2013
Author: Alfred S Carasso
Abstract: Digital enhancements of latent fingerprints using Photoshop processing is the preferred methodology among law enforcement forensic experts. This report explores alternative enhancement methods that are independent of Photoshop, relying instead o ...

28. A Bayesian Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) Approach to Estimating Remaining Life of Aging Pressure Vessels and Piping
Topic: Math
Published: 1/1/2013
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, William F Guthrie, James J Filliben, Nathanael A Heckert
Abstract: In this paper, we use a Bayesian quantitative nondestructive evaluation (QNDE) approach to estimating the remaining life of aging structures and components. Our approach depends on in-situ NDE measurements of detectable crack lengths and crack g ...

29. Indifferentiability Security of the Fast Widepipe Hash: Breaking the Birthday Barrier
Topic: Math
Published: 12/2/2012
Authors: Dustin Moody, Daniel C Smith-Tone, Souradyuti Paul
Abstract: A hash function secure in the indi fferentiability framework is able to resist all generic attacks. Such hash functions also play a crucial role in the security of the protocols that use hash functions as random functions. The rate of a hash mode is ...

30. The Radius of Attraction for Newton's Method and TV-Minimization Image Denoising
Topic: Math
Published: 12/1/2012
Authors: Luis A Melara, Anthony J Kearsley
Abstract: This paper presents an estimate of the radius of convergence for Newton‰s method applied to a regularized TV-minimization problem often employed to denoise images. Strong Fréchet differentiability of this iteration is established and an estimate of t ...
