    During the past decade many different computeroriented techniques for locating the extremum of a mathematically defined n-dimensional surface have been developed for use as aids toward optimum system design. The great majority of these techniques locate only the nearest peak if the surface is multimodal. This paper presents a technique for locating the global extremum of a multimodal surface. The ...

    A stochastic approximation procedure that minimizes a mean-square-error criterion is proposed in this paper. It is applied first to derive an algorithm for recursive estimation of the mean-square-error approximation of the function which relates the input signals and the responses of a memoryless system. The input signals are assumed to be generated at random with an unknown probability density fu... View full abstract»

  • An Upper Bound on the Number of Measurements Required by the Contour Tangent Optimization Technique

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):27 - 30
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (856 KB)

    An upper bound for the number of measurements required by the contour tangent optimization technique [1], [3] to give an ¿ approximation to the maximum is determined. The bound is applicable to n-dimensional quasiconcave functions and requires an estimate of the modulus of continuity ¿ near the maximum. For large even n and domain on the unit interval, the number of contour tangent measurements ... View full abstract»

    Efforts are made to simplify the implementation and to improve the flexibility of Bayesian learning systems. Using a truncated series expansion to represent a pattern class, a simplified structure is shown with nearly optimal performance. A criterion of determining the learning sample size is given so that after taking a sufficient number of learning observations, the system may elect to learn by ... View full abstract»

  • Optimal Estimation in the Presence of Unknown Parameters

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1357 KB)

    An adaptive approach is presented for optimal estimation of a sampled stochastic process with finite-state unknown parameters. It is shown that, for processes with an implicit generalized Markov property, the optimal (conditional mean) state estimates can be formed from 1) a set of optimal estimates based on known parameters, and 2) a set of "learning" statistics which are recursively updated. The... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (31)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1003 KB)

    The problem considered is that of determining the inverse of a linear time-invariant dynamical system characterized by a first-order vector differential equation. This problem has application to various problems in control and estimation, where a state space representation is utilized. A necessary and sufficient condition is given for the existence of an inverse system and an algorithm is develope... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this paper is to develop an analytic foundation for the determination of whether a mathematical model and its desired computations are "well-posed" in order to help alleviate the software problems associated with the simulation of complex large-scale systems by heterogeneous mathematical models involving several hundred dimensions. The problem is approached by providing a rigorous b... View full abstract»

    While analyzing situations before making vital decisions has been practiced by realistic politicians since Machiavelli's time, business managers constantly make decisions with inadequate information and under the pressures of insufficient time. Too few managers have reached the point where they rigorously analyze alternate consequences before choosing one solution over another. A prime problem is ... View full abstract»

    An algorithm is presented for determining an approximate solution of a large class of discrete linear programming problems, and an upper bound on the profit loss due to the approximation is computed. A subregion of the original polyhedron of feasible solutions is also defined; such a subregion certainly contains the optimal solution of the discrete linear programming problem considered. A geometri... View full abstract»

  • On the Quantization of Line-Drawing Data

    This paper describes the development of a criterion for the quantization of line-drawing data. The criterion provides a guide for selecting the quantization fineness required to assure that the significant features of given line-drawing data will be preserved in the quantization process. The criterion is based on viewing a line drawing as an elastic beam under flexure and selecting a quantization ... View full abstract»

  • Concepts of an Estimation System, an Adaptive System, and a Network of Adaptive Estimation Systems

    A clear distinction is made between two concepts. One concept is called an estimation system and the other an adaptive system. Using these two concepts as building blocks and a Bayes minimum conditional risk approach, it is possible to give meaning to the concept of a network of adaptive estimation systems. Under the framework of the approach, unsupervised estimation (estimation without a teacher)... View full abstract»

  • The Maximization of Nerve Conduction Velocity

    Histological and electrical examination of high-speed (myelinated) nerve fibers reveals a coaxial RC cable whose inner conductor has from 40 to 80 percent of the diameter of the outer conductor. If various reasonable engineering approximations are made, it turns out that the latter geometry corresponds to maximum conduction velocity. The model suggests that this was the basis for selection by evol... View full abstract»

    Widely used methods, such as copy, modify, cut and try, and graphical and mathematical analysis, tend to focus on circuits previously created. Mathematical synthesis of circuits is very limited in application. The synthesis of circuits or large-scale systems can be aided by a methodology called the engineering design process. To obtain the physical reality of an electronic design, so many decision... View full abstract»

    Critical cultural changes in Northern Europe and North America are not being alleviated by the traditional value of instrumentalism. Affluence and urbanism intensify sociability in societies inexperienced in it. The resulting need for mass tender loving care may, however, be met, at least for the masses, by extending technology beyond its traditionally rigid mechanical limits. The constraint has n...
