    A recently developed method of image smoothing and segmentation makes use of a "pyramid" of images at successively lower resolutions. It establishes links between pixels at successive levels of the pyramid; the subtrees of the pyramid defined by these links yield a segmentation of the image into regions over which the smoothing takes place. This paper investigates several variations on the basic l... View full abstract»

    Instrumentation currently available for the automatic monitoring of noise nuisance has the shortcoming that although the intensity, duration, and time of occurrence of noises may be recorded, their source often cannot be identified. Research directed towards providing improved instrumentation which can identify sound sources is described. Our results suggest that application of statistical pattern... View full abstract»

    A characterization theorem is given for the classes of functions which are representable by signature table systems. The usefulness of the theorem is demonstrated in the analysis and synthesis of such systems. The limitations on the power of these systems come from the restrictions on the table alphabet sizes, and a technique is given for evaluating these limitations. A practical learning system i...

    Qualitative change in pattern or configuration is starkly contrasted with quantitative change. A number of assumptions are stated regarding biological, psychological, social, economic, political, technological, and ecological forces and factors systemically causal to war or peace. The world system is considered to be a dynamic field of forces. Modern field theory is briefly reviewed. Several theor... View full abstract»

    A review of the links between technology and conflict is attempted as a means to provide insight useful to us in future linkages. Growth of technology and the use of technology to further humankind's goals is immutable. The past certainly appears to be a prologue to the future, and we are left with a series of questions as to a future with global stability. View full abstract»

    Nations as subsystems of a supranational international system appear to be having increasing problems in maintaining their stability. In order to improve the stability of this international system, it is necessary to develop a more cooperative world system utilizing some of the methodologies that have proven successful in developing other systems. Performing system acquisition work elements, impro... View full abstract»

    Peace education can assist in altering political priorities from a high emphasis on procurement of military hardware to an increased effort toward building a stronger social infrastructure having improved international stability. Incorporation of conflict resolution into curricula (primary, secondary, and university) should foster a social mentality based on the model of a positive-sum relationshi... View full abstract»

    Systems engineering insights may be able to contribute to a better general and theoretical understanding of the global technical, social, and political systems. Global system stability criteria have been significantly altered by rapid growth and development of new technologies as well as increasing interdependence of nations. Political problem solving may now depend on synthesis of new theories of... View full abstract»
