    Here is a method for dealing with a type of degeneracy that often arises in triangulation then the input contains much regularity, such as four or more points that lie on the same circle in 2D computations or five or more on the same sphere in 3D. The paper shows a dramatic application of Francis Sullivan's and my degeneracy method by Alexander Agathos (http://users.forthnet.gr/ath/agalex), who us... View full abstract»

    Resolution scale is central to large-image visualization, offering one way to address astronomers' need to access and retrieve data. In addition, multiple-resolution information and entropy are closely related to compression rate, all three of which are related to the relevance and importance of information. View full abstract»

  • Vintage computing [Use of computers in winemaking]

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):4 - 10
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2628 KB)

    Wine making is a craft that goes back thousands of years, to before the time of the ancient Greeks. Over the centuries, European growers have developed traditional approaches to well-defined regional wines. However, modern American winemakers are finding that computers and related information technology can help them make fine wines in relatively small amounts for a luxury market and produce mass-...

  • The Michelson-Morley experiment: a case study on validation

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):40 - 51
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    The Michelson-Morley experiment can be examined, using standard mathematical concepts of error analysis, as a case study in validation. A few philosophical principles focusing on scientific confirmation help elucidate the formal logical concepts that result in a foundation for scientific validation. The author proposes two research directions. View full abstract»

    Accurately predicting Web user access behavior can minimize user-perceived latency, which is crucial in the rapidly growing World Wide Web. Although traditional Markov models have helped predict user access behavior, they have serious limitations. Hybrid-order treelike Markov models predict Web access precisely while providing high coverage and scalability. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2224 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In recent years, we have witnessed accelerated developments in digital photography and spacecraft technology. current spaceborne and airborne platforms can generate several hundred high-resolution images very quickly. Although these platforms can easily produce enormous image data sets on the order of hundreds of Gbytes or several Tbytes, the interactive visualization of such large image databases...

    We can easily argue that all graduates of science and engineering degree programs should have the opportunity to develop good computing skills by the time they complete their studies. However, the depth and range of skills needed varies considerably-even in a single discipline such as physics. Moreover, the interests, backgrounds, and abilities of students taking physics courses vary widely, where... View full abstract»

    Like many of us, your application probably started out small. you had several subroutines you used daily, and over time, other people started using them as well. the more people used your subroutines, however, the more changes and additions became inevitable. To satisfy all the demands, you decide that adding scripting capability to your application was the answer, but what's the best approach? I ... View full abstract»

    Soft-devices are promising next-generation Web resources. they are software mechanisms that provide services to each other and to other virtual roles according to the content of their resources and related configuration information. They can contain various kinds of resources such as text, images, and other services. Configuring a resource in a soft-device is similar to installing software in a co... View full abstract»
