    The bottleneck in extracting data from photographs of the high-energy reactions of subnuclear particles has been opened by a factor of ten in the last decade. Four types of film processors have become operational and they have added to the natural excitement of the field by providing ample events to answer questions about the behavior of subnuclear particles. The method of extraction of track-cham... View full abstract»

    The electroencephalogram (EEG), the blood pressure wave, and the electrocardiogram (ECG), produce patterns that the eye of the physician has empirically correlated with important aspects of health. Digital computer techniques for the recognition of these patterns are made particularly difficult by the realities of pattern context sensitivity, frequent signal artifact, real-time operation, finite s...

    A deceptively simple kind of optical pattern recognition deals with print and script. What seemed at one time to be a fairly easy problem area in automated reading of line-like patterns has turned out to be difficult and expensive. The evolution and present state of the art of machine recognition of print and script is examined. On-hand systems relieve large amounts of human drudgery, and both the... View full abstract»

    The United States space program is in the throes of a major shift in emphasis from exploration of the moon and nearby planets to the application of remote sensing technology toward increased scientific understanding and economic exploitation of the earth itself. Over one hundred potential applications have already been identified. Since data from the unmanned Earth Resources Technology Satellites ... View full abstract»

    Starting with the era of learning machines, reasons are presented for the current emergence of graphics-oriented interactive pattern analysis and classification systems (IPACS) as a general approach to practical pattern-recognition problems. A number of representative systems and their application to a wide variety of patterns are surveyed. Various aspects of alternative hardware and software impl... View full abstract»

    Since the computer technology utilized often places limitations on the performance of a particular pattern-recognition task, it is important to compare the state-of-the-art and future trends in both the digital and the analog-computer fields. Electronic, acoustical, and optical analog computers for use in pattern recognition are discussed and their performance compared with that of both general-pu... View full abstract»

    The variations of the maximum growth rate and the associated frequency of oscillation and the drift velocity with the change in the number density of the streaming electrons relative to that of the stationary electrons are discussed for the instability of the longitudinal plasma wave having its wave vector in the direction of the electron stream. It is found that the maximum growth rate has the la... View full abstract»

    An airborne radar concept is described which would achieve high-resolution mapping of terrain, even with wide-beam antennas, by utilizing a narrow pulse-width. Successive high-resolution range rings, superimposed in a suitable storage medium, cause the terrain image to build up as the aircraft flies by. View full abstract»

    The load frequency control problem for a symmetrical two-area electric energy system is considered, and a new formulation and resulting optimal control algorithm is presented. Simulation results indicate that the new formulation 1) is consistent with present-day operating policy and 2) leads to improved system performance. View full abstract»
