    Techniques are introduced which are applicable to machine construction of digraph maps. These techniques are oriented toward reduction of the number of crossings in a map as a means of improving the readability of hierarchical structures. Permuting, psi-factoring, rotating, twirling, and absorbing are among the techniques considered. Examples are given to illustrate these techniques. When these an... View full abstract»

    An application of a decision approach for controlling air pollution emission from power generation, presented by the authors in an earlier paper, is described. Trade-off curves between pollution emission and total operating cost are first computed for a portion of a realistic system containing coal, oil, and gas turbine generation. Points on the trade-off curve are then mapped into an exposure mea... View full abstract»

  • Use of a Nonvisual Display for Improving the Manual Control of an Unstable System

    An approach to aiding the operator of an unstable system by use of a nonvisual display which supplements normal visual information and guides the operator in his control actions is described. The procedure is based on the feedback of significant plant variables and the combination of these variables to continuously define the desired operator action. The nonvisual display is used to present the op... View full abstract»

    A method is described for the recognition of free-form (unconstrained) handwritten numerals. At first the tracings of the input characters are converted into polygons, and then they are processed by a general syntactic parser whose output is a high-level representation in terms of strokes, quadratic arcs, corners, etc., in much the same way as a human observer might. Next a number of regular expre... View full abstract»

    Chandrasekaran and Jain [1] presented conditions under which the mean correct classification probability has a limit of one. Their conditions, however, are not sufficient to guarantee that this limit is reached monotonically. Thus local peaking is possible. Additional comments are made on their example on binary measurements. View full abstract»
