  • Perturbations of a Multimodal Network Model for Urban Transportation Planning

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):241 - 248

    A theoretical planning model that consists of a composite set of modal networks for serving the population in an urban area or region is presented. By varying and controling various parameters in the model, an equilibrium of modal choices can be obtained by seeking the condition that no user can alter his path without experiencing an increase in cost. The equivalence between equilibrium conditions... View full abstract»

    A Boolean matrix equation model is obtained for a class of discrete event systems in which the state change associated with each event occurrence is deterministic, and in which all entities are permanent. The Boolean matrix equations are quite compact and can be efficiently programmed on a digital computer. A conveyor system is used as an example. The model can be investigated for determinacy, zer...

    A mathematical representation of text editing tasks and a model of the implementation of such tasks by man-machine systems is introduced. The model assumes an abstract system that is characterized by a set of parameters such as insert rate, delete rate, etc. This model is used to derive the optimal operation strategy for a system and the expected editing rate as a function of the document's length...

  • A Dynamic Macroeconomic Model for the State of Oregon

    A model for the economy of the State of Oregon viewed as a small open entity in the larger U.S. economy is proposed here with both production and capital formation simulated by continuous, dynamic submodels. Economic activity is modeled on a sectoral (industry) basis, and an inventory concept is used to both separate the transient behavior of supply and demand and to generate price levels. Wage ra...

  • Least-Squares Estimator for Hereditary Systems with Time-Varying Delay

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):276 - 283
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1417 KB)

    A constructive solution to the estimation problem of linear hereditary systems with time-varying delay is presented using a least-squares fit to the contaminated data. The utilization of optimum control theory yields a split boundary value problem, which is transformed to an initial-value problem by utilizing the theory of Fredholm resolvents. Applications of the theory to man-machine systems, for... View full abstract»

  • Cluster Analysis Based on Dimensional Information with Applications to Feature Selection and Classification

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5445 KB)

    A new clustering algorithm is presented that is based on dimensional information. The algorithm includes an inherent feature selection criterion, which is discussed. Further, a heuristic method for choosing the proper number of intervals for a frequency distribution histogram, a feature necessary for the algorithm, is presented. The algorithm, although usable as a stand-alone clustering technique,... View full abstract»

  • A Use of Continuity in Character Recognition

    Within any given recognition class of handprinted characters, many pairs of characters are related to each other by continuous distortion. It has been usual to exploit this fact by using sequential recognition techniques that would not work if the predominant distortions were discontinuous. This paper introduces a new and highly parallel method of exploiting continuity. This method is shown experi... View full abstract»

  • A Quantitative Theory of Criminal Justice

    Some of the elements of the criminal justice system are expressed in mathematical terms. The function of the criminal justice system is postulated to be the minimization of all the losses to society resulting from crime. Losses considered include the direct and indirect loss due to a crime, the loss to the convicted criminal due to the punishment he receives, and the net cost of imposing the punis...

  • A κ - κ Error Correcting Procedure for Nonparametric Imperfectly Supervsed Learning

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):304 - 306
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (775 KB)

    A decision-directed error correcting scheme for non-paramnetric imperfectly supervised learning is proposed. The proposed procedure is based on a nearest neighbor rule with a reject option and combines the knowledge accumulated by the learning scheme with that provided by the supervision. An asymptotic analysis of the error correction scheme shows that relabeling of training measurements can have ... View full abstract»

  • Optimal Temporary Deferral of Reinforcements in a Single Terminal Flow Network

    The provision of many public services is accomplished by means of a network of facilities. As demand for the service grows, the facilities in the network must be reinforced. Alternatives may exist, however, which temporarily defer one or more reinforcements. A model is presented which enables the optimal deferral policy in a single terminal flow network to be determined. The algorithm is illustrat... View full abstract»

    The variables in a fuzzy logic system may be assigned any truth value in the closed interval [0,1]. Assuming independent logic value assignments with known probability distributions, the effects of subsequent logic operations are examined. View full abstract»

    Graph theoretical arguments are used to show that the hierarchical clustering scheme induced by Tamura's N-step fuzzy relation f is contained in the maximal single linkage hierarchy. A method of computing f is proposed, based upon Prim's algorithm for generating maximal spanning trees and a result reported by Hu on maximal capacity routes in maximal spanning trees. It is shown that this procedure ... View full abstract»

    An algorithm is presented to test the graph isomorphism for undirected linear graphs. The graph isomorphism between two or more graphs can be tested by obtaining their optimum codes. The algorithm relabels the nodes of graphs to obtain optimum codes. The optimum code is the code of maximum weight obtained from the upper triangle of the Adjacency matrix of the given graph. The method of ordering th... View full abstract»
