    The recently published Air Force Systems Command Manual 375-5 (AFSCM 375-5), System Engineering Management Procedures, prescribes the management policies and procedures to be followed in the establishment of requirements for, and in the design, development, test, operation, and maintenance of future Air Force systems. The life cycle of systems requiring AFSCM 375-5 implementation is described and ... View full abstract»

  • An Experimental Investigation of Process Identification by Competitive Evolution

    The feasibility of using evolutionary techniques to construct a model for a given process was investigated. Programs were written to synthesize six competing models and to adjust, combine, and eliminate these according to their performance with respect to the actual process. Results show that although the use of evolutionary techniques is promising for identifying processing having nonanalytic pro... View full abstract»

  • A Stochastic Differential Game with Controllable Statistical Parameters

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):17 - 20

    A differential game is described where the opponents are a missile and a radar. The problem is formulated so that linear theory can be used in finding the optimal strategies of both opponents. The missile uses a mixed strategy by adding white noise into its controller. The statistics of this noise (the covariance completely describes the noise) can be controlled. In finding the optimal strategy fo... View full abstract»

  • Combinatorial Analysis of Multi-Terminal Devices

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):21 - 27

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1469 KB)

    Procedures are described for identifying, coding, and enumerating distinguishable subnetwork configurations available from a z-terminal parent network. The number of subnetworks with x terminals and y ports are evaluated for representative values of x, y, and z. Constraints imposed by the symmetry of the device structure are analyzed and results applied to multiterminal devices employed in the des... View full abstract»

  • On Bayesian Learning and Stochastic Approximation

    A general mathematical formulation for learning in an unknown stationary environment is established from the viewpoint of stochastic approximation. The existing learning techniques, based on the Bayesian type of inference, are first shown to fall into the general framework of stochastic approximation algorithms. As a consequence of the modeling, some convergence properties, optimal characteristics... View full abstract»

  • Algorithms for the Dichotomous Representation of Systems

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):39 - 47
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2159 KB)

    A compatible series of computer programs is developed for circuits with large numbers of components, typically 30 to 100. The programs utilize the dichotomy entailed in the flowgraph associated with any active network. Algorithms are established to 1) dichotomize the network into voltage and current generators, 2) examine separately each set and the associated system of controls interrelating both...

  • Systems Engineering Problems in Computer-Driven CRT Displays for Man-Machine Communication

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):47 - 54
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3881 KB)

    Computer-driven cathode-ray tube (CRT) displays are becoming an important means of on-line man-machine communication, particularly for graphical input/output in laboratory investigations of computer-aided design techniques. Their operation, however, often requires so much of the computational resources of the associated computer that they are not yet considered economic or practical for general in...

  • Value of Information Lotteries

    The essence of decision-making is understanding the economic impact of uncertainty. In this paper a previous discussion of information value theory is extended to illustrate how the availability of information on the uncertain factors of a problem affects the probability density function of profit, the profit lottery. A bidding problem serves to demonstrate the type of calculations required and th... View full abstract»

  • Bounds on System Risk Functions Induced by Subsystems

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):67 - 72
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1764 KB)

    System performance can be measured by means of loss functions and risk functions. Inequalities are derived which provide upper and lower bounds on the total system risk function in terms of the more readily evaluated individual subsystem risk functions. Bounds are given for the cases in which the members of an arbitrary collection of interconnected subsystems are either statistically independent o... View full abstract»
