    There are four main objectives of this survey. First, the general theory of multilevel systems is outlined, and basic related issues are presented. Second, the literature on the research topics that utilize the fundamental concepts, structures, and methodologies of multilevel systems is classified and documented. Third, principal features, advantages, and limitations as pertinent to various practi... View full abstract»

  • Generation of Multilevel Control and Estimation Schemes for Large-Scale Systems: A Perturbational Approach

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s):144 - 152
    Cited by:  Papers (16)

    A new approach to the development of multilevel control and estimation schemes for large-scale systems with a major emphasis on the reliability of performance under structural perturbations is described. The study is conducted within a decomposition-decentralization framework and leads to simple and noniterative control and estimation schemes. The solution to the control problem involves the desig...

  • Real-Time Determination of How a Human Has Allocated His Attention between Control and Monitoring Tasks

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s):153 - 161

    A computer algorithm employing fading-memory system identification and linear discriminant analysis is proposed for real-time detection of human shifts of attention in a control and monitoring situation. Experimental results are presented that validate the usefulness of the method. Application of the method to computer-aided decisionmaking in multitask situations is discussed. View full abstract»

    Several recent papers have presented data from experimental investigations of the human ivsual system (HVS) which support the general hypothesis that the HVS is composed of spatial frequency channels. It has been pointed out, however, that a linear systems analysis of the entire system is not valid. Furthermore, a nonlinear model consisting of a log-bandpass filter produced some experimental resul... View full abstract»

    Description or discrimination of boundary curves (shapes) is an important problem in picture processing and pattern recognition. Fourier descriptors (FD's) have interesting properties in this respect. First, a critical review is given of two kinds of FD's. Some properties of the FD's are given and a distance measure is proposed, in terms of FD's, that measures the difference between two boundary c... View full abstract»

  • Subset Methods for Recognizing Distorted Patterns

    At an application-independent level of generality, the problem of recognizing noisy distorted patterns is discussed. Practical techniques for recognizing, for instance, speech, characters, vector-cardiograms, and fingerprints, are designed to tolerate minor distortions of patterns, but not to tolerate any distortion that changes any pattern into a further pattern that belongs to a different recogn...

  • Financial Considerations of Laboratory Management in an Inner City Hospital

    The financial aspects of hospital laboratory management are examined. The usual practice of setting prices a few percentage points above costs in order to make a profit or break even is shown to be inapplicable. This is due to the unusual strictures placed upon hospitals by a governmentally imposed system wherein reimbursement is, for many patients, based upon costs rather than upon charges. A mod...
