Efficient Algorithms for Circular-Arc Containment Graphs
In the recent past, a wide variety of algorithms have been developed for a class of intersection graphs, called interval graphs. As a generalization of interval graphs, circular-arc graphs have also been studied extensively. ...
Efficient Encoding of Speech LSP Parameters Using the Discrete Cos ine Transformation.
In this paper, the intraframe and interframe correlation propeffie s are used to develop two efficient encoding algorithms for speech line spectrum pair (ISP) parameters. The first algorithm (2-D DCT) , which requires ...
Structure of a Flexible Manufacturing Protocol for Design and Control of a Vertical Machining Cell
The thesis presented here develops the Flexible Manufacturing Protocol (FMP) for use in CIM (Computer Integrated Manufacturing). The philosophy of the FMP is discussed, as well as the FMP structure. A vertical machining ...
A Model for Computer Life.
We propose a model to organize the logical level of the computers interconnected worldwide. We assume this universe populated with programs of a new kind called beings. Beings are autonomous, active and interoperable to ...
Concavity of Throughput in Series of Queues with Finite Buffers.
Concavity of the output process with respect to buffer size is established in a series of DOT/M/1/B queues with loss at the first node. Similarly, one shows concavity of the throughput with respect to the number of servers ...
Convergence of spectral methods for hyperbolic initial-boundary value systems

Real-Time Control for a Zero Gravity Robotic End Effector
There is no doubt that the task of gripping and handling objects in space is an important one. The ability to easily manipulate objects in a zero gravity environment will play a key role in future space activities. It is ...
Development and Application of a Knowledge Based System for Cellubr Manufacturing.
The Inter Class Traffic Minimization Method (ICTMM) that arranges the production equipment of a machine shop into manufacturing cells in order to minimize the inter cell trafflc of parts is presented in this paper. All ...
A square matrix F is said to be D-stable if the eigenvalues of DF have negative real parts for any diagonal matrix D with positive diagonal elements. The perturbational properties of D-stability and block D-stability, a ...
Integration of Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP II) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) Through Database Interoperability
The traditional, fragmented approach to increasing manufacturing efficiency has resulted in "islands of automation" in our factories. Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is the goal of typing together these islands ...
