    A new approach to the modeling of the evolution in time of disease treatment is presented. The resulting model is that of a white stochastic incidence sequence generating a prevalence sequence as the output of a linear, stochastically time-varying system. The average time behavior of the episode is identified through the prevalence autocorrelation function; the latter is measured from data generat... View full abstract»

    A computation is presented which enables robots with six degrees of freedom to orient and position workpieces against fixtures. It is assumed that the robot can grasp a single workpiece and that a vision system can determine the three-dimensional locations of three feature points on that workpiece. A feature point is a unique point on a workpiece, such as the apex of a cone, which may be located v... View full abstract»

    With the aid of statistical detection theory, the continuous optimum Bayes recognition scheme for machine characters is developed using a sufficient statistic approach. This result is then extended to the discrete case and the associated problems such as the sampling effects are examined. Using the discrete optimum recognition model, design parameters are then developed. Among these are the critic... View full abstract»

    A nonarithmetic procedure is described for discovering among a set of points in a d-dimensional space, the k neighbors nearest a given point, according to the Minkowski "max metric." It is shown that this procedure may be used to eliminate distance calculations when finding nearest neighbors according to any Minkowski p-metric. When used with a set of uniformly distributed sample points, the expec... View full abstract»

    An analysis of the correction schemes for multistage lot-production systems is given for an extension of the discussion in earlier studies. The methodology which will be outlined is classified into two areas: 1) maintenance of the parallel lot-production system and 2) maintenance of the serial lot-production system. Although this study has a specific viewpoint, it claims that the function of sampl... View full abstract»

    The optimal control problem for unreliable dynamic systems with random failure was investigated by Murthy [1]. This note shows that the controller algorithm proposed in [1] is suboptimal. View full abstract»
