Polyhedra are geometric representations of linear systems of equations and
inequalities. Since polyhedra are used to represent the iteration domains of nested
loop programs, procedures for operating on polyhedra can be used for doing loop
transformations and other program restructuring transformations which are needed
in parallelizing compilers. Thus a need...
This thesis describes research to implement a Bayesian belief network based
expert system to solve a real-world diagnostic problem troubleshooting integrated
circuit (IC) testing machines. Several models of the IC tester diagnostic problem
were developed in belief networks, and one of these models was implemented
using Symbolic Probabilistic Inference (SPI)....
Forage availability, diets, distribution, and productivity were
compared for Roosevelt elk, Cervus elaphus roosevelti, using improved
(i.e. seeded, fertilized, and grazed) and untreated areas of the Oregon
Coast Range. Seasonal forage availability was substantially different
on 1-year-old improved and untreated clearcuts, but the differences
diminished by clearcut age 4 and...
Electric arc welding is the most prevalent welding type in industry. It creates two main groups of health hazards for workers; fumes and gases, and radiant energy. Shielded Metal Arc (SMA) welding is the most widely used welding method in industrial plant welding shops. The main chemical health hazards associated...
The purpose of this study was to develop a valid and reliable, instrument for
determining the mathematics subject matter knowledge of Thai preservice elementary
teachers at eight (8) teachers' colleges in eight (8) provinces in northern Thailand.
The focus of the content of interest was the operation of division of...
