Most of the existing research on mathematical morphology is
restricted to the deterministic case. This thesis addresses the void
in the results on the stochastic properties of morphological filters.
The primary results include analysis of the stochastic
properties of morphological operations, such as dilation, erosion,
closing and opening. Two unbiased...
The non-ideal aqueous electrolyte simulator (NAELS) is composed of
three major parts: a Newton-Raphson non-linear optimization program written
by Weare, et al (1987); an activity coefficient subroutine for non-ideal
electrolyte systems based on Pitzer's model; and an extensive, user expandable
database. It is robust, stable, and requires neither thermodynamic data...
