    Basic principles of engineering, ecology, and economics are synthesized into logically consistent theoretical and computational procedures for a coordinated multilevel analysis of the tradeoffs in the static mass-energy and economic characteristics of alternate ecosystems (life support systems) and subsystems. Ecologically consistent pricing mechanisms are discussed as a means for regulating physi... View full abstract»

    A methodology is presented for developing socioeconomic models of the type formalized by Forrester. A means of including socioeconomic experts into the modeling process is suggested, and it is emphasized that such models are not scientific models but merely assemblages of expert opinion. An iterative numerical scheme based on the technique of "quasi-linearization" is described which can be used to... View full abstract»

  • A Simplification of Forrester's Model of an Urban Area

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):468 - 472

    A greatly simplified version of Forrester's model of an urban area is described. Whereas Forrester's original model contained 20 states and 150 equations, the revised one contains 9 states and 81 equations. This revised model converges to a close approximation to Forrester's equilibrium through similar temporal behavior and produces comparable results when Forrester's 11 urban programs are applied...

    The problems of planning for economic development in the new states of Africa and Asia as well as in the more established countries of Latin America arise from the interplay of the political, social, and economic subsystems of a developing country. In this paper a system simulation model of a developing agricultural economy is presented as one approach to the planning problem. A preliminary model ... View full abstract»

    The applications of computer control in production factories have been extended from the control of mass and energy to the production control. The control at this level comprises the formulation and alteration of work schedules in accordance with the progress of work, and it may be called the control of information. This paper deals with the flow line which is the most fundamental production line ... View full abstract»

    A systematic method is proposed for the development, optimization, and comparison of human controller models. The method is suitable for any model, including multiparameter systems. The evaluation criteria for assessing model quality are based on three separate components: 1) the cost or criterion function, 2) the comparison between the input/output functions of the human operator and those of the...

    The effects of aural and combined aural and visual displays of tracking error on human operator dynamics were investigated using a compensatory tracking task. The aural displays indicated error magnitude with tone pitch and error polarity by either modulating the tone or by switching it between the ears. Describing functions, remnants, and rms tracking performance were measured with test condition... View full abstract»

    The results of an automated classification of the peripheral blood leukocytes into eight categories are presented. The classification was achieved by means of digital image processing. The categories were: small lymphocytes, medium lymphocytes, large lymphocytes, band neutrophils, segmented neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, and monocytes. An eight-dimensional multivariate Gaussian classifier wa... View full abstract»

  • Simplification of Sequences of Operators

    The output of a system is often expressed as a sequence of unary and/or binary operations on the input. Analysis or design considerations may require manipulation of the sequence of operators to obtain an equivalent sequence either mathematically simpler or easier to design. For this purpose, available operator algebra must be considerably expanded. Several new operators are introduced: the multip... View full abstract»

  • Training a One-Dimensional Classifier to Minimize the Probability of Error

    Some of the results of a study of asymptotically optimum nonparametric training procedures for two-category pattern classifiers are reported. The decision surfaces yielded by earlier forms of nonparametric training procedures generally do not minimize the probability of error. We derive a modification of the Robbins-Monro method of stochastic approximation, and show how this modification leads to ... View full abstract»
