    The results of a study designed to test a combination of methodologies for evaluation of systems, identification of a workable set of system evaluation attributes, and most importantly, specification of the interrelationships between these attributes as "seen" by the evaluators is reported. Twenty attributes were chosen which covered those areas deemed most important in systems evaluation and whic... View full abstract»

    A simple macromodel of mass and energy flow in production processes is proposed. The importance of mass recycling in production processes, i.e., mass reutilization for production, is pointed out. This type of model has a possibility of further extension to study the properties of production processes. View full abstract»

    A general framework for assessing validity of alternative theories of business cycles and longer term economic cycles is described. The evaluative framework draws upon a generic model of the production sector of the economy. Evaluation of alternative theories of economic cycles is carried out by isolating the central causal elements of each theory and incorporating those elements into the basic pr... View full abstract»

    This paper contrasts two approaches to testing the importance of model variables: single-equation statistical tests, such as are used in regression analysis, and model-behavior tests. The paper attempts to show that tests which analyze the impact of individual variables on model behavior are better suited, both theoretically and operationally, to the task of selecting model variables. Conversely, ... View full abstract»

    Textural features corresponding to human visual perception are very useful for optimum feature selection and texture analyzer design. We approximated in computational form six basic textural features, namely, coarseness, contrast, directionality, line-likeness, regularity, and roughness. In comparison with psychological measurements for human subjects, the computational measures gave good correspo... View full abstract»

    For a given set of images (or pattern samples), a probabilistic grammar may be developed to describe and recognize these images. This grammar, once obtained, may serve as an abstract representation for the images in question. Conversely, images may be regenerated from their grammatical representations. Images regenerated in this manner, however, may contain samples that are not found in the set of... View full abstract»
