    A pattern deformational model is proposed in this paper. Pattern deformations are categorized into two types: local deformation and structural deformation. A structure-preserving local deformation can be decomposed into a syntactic deformation followed by a semantic deformation, the former being induced on primitive structures and the latter on primitive properties. Bayes error-correcting parsing ... View full abstract»

  • Error-Correcting Isomorphisms of Attributed Relational Graphs for Pattern Analysis

    The pattern deformational model proposed by Tsai and Fu [11] is extended so that numerical attributes and probability or density distributions can be introduced into primitives and relations in a nonhierarchical relational graph. Conventional graph isomorphisms are then generalized to include error-correcting capability for matching deformed patterns represented by such attributed relational graph... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive Allocation of Decisionmaking Responsibility between Human and Computer in Multitask Situations

    As human and computer come to have overlapping decisionmaking abilities, a dynamic or adaptive allocation of responsibilities may be the best mode of human-computer interaction. It is suggested that the computer serve as a backup decisionmaker, accepting responsibility when human workload becomes excessive and relinquishing responsibility when workload becomes acceptable. A queueing theory formula... View full abstract»

    The ultimate judges of the quality of reproduced pictures are human observers. In many practical situations it is desirable to have objective measures which closely mirror the performance of the human viewer; today we lack accurate measures. To study this problem, a set of five pictures was used in which distortions of different types were introduced. The resulting series of pictures was rated by ... View full abstract»

    In this paper an alternative method for solving multiobjective optimization problems is presented. We are especially concerned with bridging a gap between procedures for obtaining the Pareto-optimal solutions and the "best compromised" preferred solution for the decisionmaker. First, the main concepts ofthe utility approach are briefly reviewed from the point of view of multiobjective systems anal... View full abstract»

    Many complex problems may be modeled as conflicts, but until now a comprehensive technique for analyzing real world conflicts has not been available. A method is presented which permits the rapid assessment of complex conflict situations for the purpose of finding resolutions to a conflict, determining correct strategies, and enhancing one's understanding of the problem. The new technique is prese... View full abstract»

    The development of citizen capacity to function from a systems perspective on major public issues is needed to combat the "politics of selfishness' as practiced through single-issue political action groups. Environmental education offers an opportunity to develop citizenship functions through the challenge set forth in the Environmental Education Act of 1970. Systems methodologies have been develo...

    Attention is focused on the theory concerning comparisons of single-firm market structures and certain multifirm alternatives to such structures. Firms are assumed to produce a single commodity with which is associated a price as well as a numerical index of quality. Considered first is the case in which the single firm is assumed to be profit-maximizing, and the price and quality of the commodity... View full abstract»

  • The Temporal and Spatial Aspects of Diffusion of Technology

    The contemporary theorizing on the diffusion of technology in terms of innovation-imitation distinction is the point of departure of this paper. The alternative viewpoint that the diffusion of technology is intimately linked with its development is advanced. The process of diffusion is best conceived in terms of the actual substitution of a new technique for the old. This viewpoint is further deve... View full abstract»

    The notion of "complex problems" is introduced with the help of a production planning problem in a Finnish pharmaceutical industry. It is demonstrated that a complex management problem may be based on two key elements¿the multigoal and the aggregation/disaggregation problems. Two approaches to tackling complex problems are introduced: the first is to determine composite optimal solutions by linki... View full abstract»
