Robot path planning with a moving goal.
Path planners in which a hunter is required to chase after a moving target is an important problem for modern robotic systems such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs). This thesis ...
Efficient M-fold Cross-validation Algorithm for KNearest Neighbors
This project investigates m-fold cross-validation algorithms for automatic selection of k with k-nearest neighbors problems. An algorithm taxonomy is used to identify different m-fold cross-validation algorithms. The ...
Extending Symmetric Variable-Pair Transitivities Using State-Space Transformations
Two-cofactor relations and their associated symmetry types have been studied for many years. While ordinary symmetries are simply transitive permitting them to be combined into clusters of variables, other types of symmetries ...
The Class 2 4x4 Faithful Representations of S4 over GF(2)
There are 9 conjugacy classes of faithful representations of S4 in the general linear group of 4x4 matrices over GF(2). This report lists the representations belonging to class 2.
Bootstrapping Bipartite Graphs Consisting of Edges Based on Ontology Terms Occurring in Scientific Abstract
The Ontological Discovery Environment (ODE) provides an efficient structure for storage of gene and pheno- type relations. The relations can be represented by a bipartite graph, where the gene and phenotype items can be ...
Why is Symmetry So Hard?
The problem of detecting virtually any type of symmetry is shown to be co-NP-complete. We start with totally symmetric functions, then extend the result to partially symmetric functions, then to more general cofactor ...
Review-by-Few or Review-by-Many?
It’s clear that traditional forms of academic publication are rapidly becoming obsolete. It’s also clear that peer review is a seriously flawed process that could be much improved upon by modern methods of communication. ...
The design of small propellers operating at low Reynolds numbers and associated experimental evaluation.
Small-scale Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) are becoming increasingly important in the field of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance. As the desire for higher payloads and longer flight times increases, so does ...
Effects of nozzle geometry and extrudate swell on fiber orientation in Fused Deposition Modeling nozzle flow.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is a rapidly growing Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology using extruded thermoplastics to produce intricate three-dimensional parts from digital data. Adding discrete fibers to FDM filament ...
Nondestructive inspection and characterization of complex engineering materials via ultrasound techniques.
Nondestructive evaluation methods have grown increasingly popular and necessary in a variety of industries. For example, the aerospace industry uses such techniques to inspect aircraft components for damage prior to making ...
