    The psychological notion of cognitive balance by Cartwright and Harary offers a well-organized mode for consideration of systems theoretic approaches to social problems. The balancing processes of a social system, which transform an unbalanced system to a balanced one by changing the cognitive relations, are characterized in terms of signed graphs. First, the characterization of the balancing proc... View full abstract»

  • Prediction of Pilot-Aircraft Stability Boundaries and Performance Contours

    Control-theoretic pilot models can provide important new insights regarding the stability and performance characteristics of the pilot-aircraft system. Optimal-control pilot models can be formed for a wide range of flight conditions, suggesting that the human pilot can maintain stability if he adapts his control strategy to the aircraft's changing dynamics. Of particular concern is the effect of s... View full abstract»

    Utilizing elementary concepts from the theory of fuzzy sets as well as several nonfuzzy heuristics, a model is presented of human decisionmaking in the task of troubleshooting graphically displayed networks. The performance of the model is compared to the results of two previously reported experimental studies. The ability of the model to represent human decisionmaking as a function of network siz...

    A new algorithm is presented for pattern recognition by clustering. The algorithm is called structural editing by a point density function, or STEP. STEP uses a minimum spanning tree to retain the interpoint structure among the elements of an unclassified training set. The tree is pruned or edited to form clusters based on information provided by a point density function (PDF) estimate. STEP has t... View full abstract»

  • Quantitative Evaluation of Print Quality for Optical Character Recognition Systems

    Publication Year: 1978 , Page(s): 371 - 381
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3433 KB)  

    Objective, mechanical, and quantitative evaluation of printed characters is discussed. Print quality can be quantified by the peak value of the print contrast signal (PCS), the average stroke width, the noise factor, and the centroid deviation. An instrument for evaluating a large number of printed characters has been constructed. This instrument consists of a scanner, a minicomputer, and its peri... View full abstract»

  • A Sentence-to-Sentence Clustering Procedure for Pattern Analysis

    Cited by:  Papers (34)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1453 KB)  

    Cluster analysis for patterns represented by sentences is investigated. The similarity between patterns is expressed in terms of the distance between their corresponding sentences. A weighted distance between two strings is defined and its probabilistic interpretation given. The class membership of an input pattern (sentence) is determined according to the nearest neighbor or k-nearest neighbor ru... View full abstract»

  • On the Peaking of the Hughes Mean Recognition Accuracy: The Resolution of an Apparent Paradox

    Publication Year: 1978 , Page(s): 390 - 395
    Cited by:  Papers (12)

    The peaking phenomenon of the Bayes recognition accuracy of pattern classifiers with unknown underlying statistics is addressed. It is shown that this effect, known as the Hughes paradox, arises from improper comparisons of statistically incomparable models. A formalization of the notion of comparability is introduced, and some of the results obtained in the literature are revisited in this contex... View full abstract»
