#### Structural Optimization in a Distributed Computing Environment

(1991)

This report presents the formulation and testing of a Feasible Sequential Quadratic Programming (FSQP-DIS) optimization algorithm customized to a Distributed Numerical Computing environment (DNC). DNC utilizes networking ...

#### Solid Modeling of Reinforced Concrete Beams, Part I: Data Structures and Algorithms, Part II: Computational Environment

(1991)

This 2-part paper describes a solid modeling methodology for the interactive design and analysis of reinforced concrete (RC) beam structures. Part I covers the data structure and algorithms for steel reinforcing bar ...

#### Exact, Recursive, Inference of Event Space Probability Law for Discrete Random Sets with Applications

(1991)

In this paper we extend Choquet's result to obtain a recursive procedure for the computation of the underlying event-space probability law for Discrete Random Sets, based on Choquet's capacity functional. This is an important ...

#### Shrewd Bargaining on the Moral Frontier: Toward a Theory of Morality in Practice

(Philosophy Documentation Center, 1991)

From a traditional moral point of view, business practitioners often seem overly concerned about
the behavior of their peers in deciding how they ought to act. We propose to account for this concern by
introducing a ...

#### Measurement of tensor polarization in elastic electron-deuteron scattering in the momentum-transfer range 3.8≤q≤4.6 fm-1

(1991-07)

The tensor polarization t20 of the recoil deuteron in elastic e-d scattering has been measured for three values of four-momentum transfer, q=3.78, 4.22, and 4.62 fm-1. The data have been used to locate the first node in ...

#### Fast Recursive Estimation of System Order and Parameters for Adaptive Control and IIR Filtering

(1991)

In this dissertation, simultaneous on-line estimation of system order and parameters is studied. The key features are the direct exploitation of the Toeplitz structure in a Toeplitz submatrix system (of linear equations), ...

#### Closed-Form Direct Kinematics Solution of a New Parallel Minimanipulator

(1991)

Closed-form direct kinematics solution of a new three-limbed six- degree-of-freedom minimanipulator is presented. Five-bar linkages and inextensible limbs are used in synthesis of the minimanipulator to improve its positional ...

#### Classification of the Transient Signals via Auditory Representations

(1991)

We use a model of processing in the human auditory system to develop robust representations of signals. These reduced representations are then presented to a neural network for training and classification.<P>Empirical ...
