    The literature about information for organizational decisionmaking is widely scattered in a variety of journals and books. All such materials are pooled together and the materials are classified as falling into three distinct schools of thought: a) the classical school, b) the management science school, and c) the behavioral science school. The literature is then reviewed with special reference to... View full abstract»

  • Optimal Performance of a Firm in a Dynamic Market

    The problem of optimal dynamic transition of a firm with market power from a predetermined initial condition to a known statically optimal equilibrium state is formulated. The model of the firm is linear, discrete time, and behavioristic in nature with production, demand, inventory, and order and sales sectors. Prices and changes in the production rate constitute the decision variables which are a... View full abstract»

    Certain theoretical aspects of fuzzy decision trees and their applications are discussed. The main result is a branch-bound-backtrack algorithm which, by means of pruning subtrees unlikely to be traversed and installing tree-traversal pointers, has an effective backtracking mechanism leading to the optimal solution while still requiring usually only O(log n) time, where n is the number of decision...

  • Parameter Estimation for an Estuarine Phosphorus Model

    The synthesis of a phosphorus model for Jamaica Bay, NY, is reduced to a parameter estimation problem. It is shown that for a quadratic least squared error estimator, the sensitivity function depends monotonically on the reaction rate, and the optimum reaction rate is unique. The resulting model, which incorporates the optimum reaction rate and an effective phosphorus source, is based on a shootin... View full abstract»

  • On Assembling Subpictures into a Mosaic Picture

    If an object to be observed is much larger than the field of vision, we should observe it part by part as in the case of eye fundus photographs or gastrocamera photographs. Subpictures obtained through partial observation should be assembled into a mosaic picture which shows the whole object. An arrangement graph which shows adjacency and spatial differences among subpictures is defined, and the p... View full abstract»

  • Resolution-Dependent Information Measures for Image Analysis

    A picture processing scheme which quantifies pictorial information through the use of a resolution-dependent feature extraction process is introduced. The proposed quantification method (based on an information theoretical approach) can be used for edge detection, texture analysis, and classification, as well as feature extraction. These applications are possible because the information measures o... View full abstract»
