#### An Active Set Method for Solving Linearly Constrained Nonsmooth Optimization Problems.

(1987)

An algorithm for solving linearly constrained optimization problems is proposed. The search direction is computed by a bundle principle and the constraints are treated through an active set strategy. Difficulties that arise ...

#### On Cost-effectiveness of a Semijoin in Distributed Query Processing.

(1987)

The cost-effective reduction of relations by semijoins is the basis of the heuristic approach to distributed query processing. The cost-effectiveness of a semijoin was simply determined in the literature assuming that the ...

#### Information Theoretic Analysis for a General Queueing System at Equilibrium with Application to Queues in Tandem.

(1987)

In this paper, information theoretic inference methodology for system modeling is applied to estimate the probability distribution for the number of customers in a general, single server queueing system with infinite ...

#### An Expert System for Electronics Design.

(1987)

After three years of development, the University of Maryland Reliability and Maintainability Computer Aided Design (RAMCAD) expert system for electronics has been implemented for on-site test and utilization. This paper ...

#### Implementing Large Production Systems in a DBMS Environment: Concepts and Algorithms.

(1987)

It has been widely recognized that many future database applications, including engineering processes, manufacturing and communications, will require some kind of rule based reasoning. It is conceivable that large knowledge ...

#### Tactile Sensing and Inverse Problems.

(1987)

The goal of this paper is to study how a surface force profile may be estimated from the information on strain or stress distribution detected by tactile sensors. This problem is referred to as the inverse problem since ...

#### On the Number of Digital Straight Line Segments.

(1987)

Let L_N be the number of digital line segments of length N that correspond to lines of the form y = ax + BETA, 0 <= a, BETA <=1. In a previous paper [4], a closed form expression for the quantity L_N was obtained. We prove ...

#### An Integration of Manufacturing Recource Planning (MRP II) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) Based on Update Dependencies.

(1987)

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 tying together these islands into ...

#### Coded FH/SS Communications in the Presence of Combined Partial- Band Noise Jamming, Rician Nonselective Fading and Multi-User Interference.

(1987)

In this paper we address the problem of combatting combined interference in spreadspectrum communication links. We consider frequency-hopped spread-spectrum systems with M-ary FSK modulation and noncoherent demodulation ...

#### Parameter Estimation under Threshold Policies for a Simple Flow Control Problem.

(1987)

In [5], the authors showed that threshold policies solve an optimal flow control problem for discrete-time M|M|1 queues, where the decision-maker seeks to maximize the system throughput subject to a bound on the long-run ...
