    Handprinted character recognition by computer is accomplished on forty-nine character classes with a high recognition rate (> 99.4 percent). The form of characters is constrained by requiring each character to be handprinted on a standard grid. The grid is composed of twenty line segments, each of which forms the basis for a feature, yielding twenty features to represent each character. A person p... View full abstract»

  • Study of Patient Admission Policies for Specialized Care Facilities

    Specialized patient care facilities such as coronary care units, intensive care units, renal dialysis units, and cancer radiation therapy units usually constitute scarce resources in a health care delivery system. When patients "compete" for these facilities, decisions on patient selection are made. It is not infrequent to hear the motto of "treating high-risk patients first." A quantitative model...

  • An Analysis of Wildfire Prevention

    A model of the production of wildfire ignitions and damages is developed and used to determine wildland activity-regulation decisions, which minimize total expected cost-plus-loss due to wildfires. In this context, the implications of various policy decisions are considered. The resulting decision rules take a form that makes it possible for existing wildfire management agencies to readily adopt t... View full abstract»

  • Optimal Control of Cooling Water Discharge from a Power Plant

    The optimal cooling water discharge policy from a power plant to a stream has been studied for the purpose of preventing thermal pollution. The control policy has been obtained by means of the maximum principle and also by means of a direct search technique. The optimal policy permits a power plant to operate at the highest possible capacity and at the same time to maintain a high water quality. T... View full abstract»

    A kinesthetic-tactual compensatory display for presenting critical vehicular control information has undergone preliminary inflight testing with novice pilots. The efficacy of this presentation, as compared with two types of visual displays, was evaluated in both a highly structured approach and landing task and a less structured task involving tight turns about a point. The displayed quantity was... View full abstract»

  • A Minimum-Cost Feature-Selection Algorithm for Binary-Valued Features

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):536 - 542
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1296 KB)

    An algorithm to select the minimum-cost collection of binary-valued features for use with a linear pattern classifier is presented. The feature-selection algorithm is motivated by the convex-hull representation of pattern-space separability. Combinatorial analysis and linear programming are used to find the minimum-cost collection of binary-valued features associated with a given set of preclassif... View full abstract»

  • Stable Adaptive Schemes for System Identification and Control-Part I

    General schemes for the adaptive control and identification of multivariable systems whose entire state vectors are accessible for measurement are developed. A model reference approach is used here, and Lyapunov's direct method is employed to ensure the convergence of these schemes. An added feature is the simplicity of the stable adaptive laws, which depend explicitly on the state variables of th... View full abstract»

    The extension of some of the results contained in Part I [1] to the case when only the plant outputs rather than all its state variables are accessible for measurement is discussed. A unified approach to the synthesis of an adaptive observer is presented whereby the plant state and parameters are simultaneously estimated. Uniform asymptotic stability of the scheme is proved using Lyapunov's direct... View full abstract»
