  • On Affecting the Long-Term Air Quality in the San Francisco Bay Area

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):307 - 313
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1237 KB)

    The long-term air quality objectives in the San Francisco Bay Area strive to return the quality of air to 1940 conditions as a best condition but under no circumstances to permit the quality of air to deteriorate below 1970 conditions. Although some improvement in air quality is to be expected over the next decade because of stricter automobile pollution controls, it is expected that the pressure ... View full abstract»

  • Algorithms for Discrete Sequential Maximum Likelihood Bias Estimation and Associated Error Analysis

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):314 - 324
    Cited by:  Papers (10)

    Optimization theory and discrete invariant imbedding is used in order to derive computationally efficient sequential algorithms for the maximum likelihood estimation of bias errors in linear discrete recursive filtering with noise corrupted input observations and correlated plant and measurement noise. Error analysis algorithms are derived for adaptive and nonadaptive systems with bias and modelin... View full abstract»

  • On the Generation of System Partitions for Large-Scale Integration

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):325 - 330
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1103 KB)

    The problem of partitioning an electronic system into subsystems to be implemented with large-scale integration is considered. The system is composed of interacting functional blocks; the partitioning objective is the minimization of a figure of merit which takes into account the number of different types of subsystems and the number of interconnections between subsystems. An explicit formula is g... View full abstract»

    Results of the application of a new edge-defining preprocessor to the recognition of handwritten numerals are presented. The decision mechanisms which were simulated are simple and are closely related to maximum likelihood decisions. Results are presented of experiments in which 1000 numeral patterns were used to set up a memory, which was then tested on a further 1000 samples. Success rates appro... View full abstract»

  • A Stochastic Approximation Method

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):338 - 344
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1010 KB)

    A new algorithm for stochastic approximation has been proposed, along with the assumptions and conditions necessary for convergence. It has been proved by two different methods that the algorithm converges to the sought value in the mean-square sense and with probability one. The rate of convergence of the new algorithm is shown to be better than two existing algorithms under certain conditions. R... View full abstract»

    Criteria for the evaluation of computer systems are traditionally computer science oriented. This exploratory investigation is concerned with evaluations of users' satisfaction with a time-shared computer system. The first part of the investigation is an experiment indicating that the type of programming language, i.e., Basic versus Fortran, is the relevant significant factor in determining the le...

  • A User-Oriented Freight Railroad Operating Policy

    Two different ways of optimizing a freight railroad system are investigated. In the first, called the "traditional policy," the railroad operating cost is minimized for a given traffic demand. In the second, called the "user-oriented policy," the total cost of transportation is minimized, i.e., the sum of the railroad operating cost and the losses borne by the shippers that are due to the level of...

  • A Computer-Based Learning System for Remote Manipulator Control

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):356 - 363
    Cited by:  Papers (10)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1455 KB)

    A concept of adaptive aiding for performance improvement in remote handling is described. The concept incorporates an autonomous control subsystem (ACS) that is able to supplement the operator's control function. The behavior of the ACS is established through a process of learning by observing the operator's control function in relation to the environment and manipulator output. The computer-based...

  • Polynomial Theory of Complex Systems

    A complex multidimensional decision hypersurface can be approximated by a set of polynomials in the input signals (properties) which contain information about the hypersurface of interest. The hypersurface is usually described by a number of experimental (vector) points and simple functions of their coordinates. The approach taken in this paper to approximating the decision hypersurface, and hence... View full abstract»

  • Control and Regulation of the Human Motor System

    Current theory considers motor control to be effected over two pathways, one via the alpha motoneurons to the muscle and the other via the gamma motoneurons to the muscle spindles. This mechanism, described as the "alpha-gamma linkage," permits the control of the willed muscle output with the simultaneous maintenance of postural equilibrium by regulation of the muscle's length sensors. The stretch... View full abstract»
