Regression testing is an expensive software engineering activity intended to provide
confidence that modifications to a software system have not introduced faults.
Test case prioritization techniques help to reduce regression testing cost by ordering
test cases in a way that better achieves testing objectives. In this thesis, we are interested...
Violations of one or more of the assumptions made In analysis of
variance (ANOVA) or linear regression analysis may lead to erroneous
results. Often data will not conform to the assumptions implicit in the
analyses, but transforming the data to a different scale may lead to an
appropriate model. Before...
A sophisticated computer program is developed to analyze flow linear
dichroism data on nucleic acids for individual base inclinations. Measured
absorption and linear dichroism data for synthetic AT and GC polymers and
natural DNAs are analyzed. The reliability of the program is tested on data for
the synthetic polymers, and...
A Graphic User Interface is developed to determine the existence of a
particular sequence of piano notes within a monophonic sound waveform.
Such waveforms are recorded within the Graphic User Interface and then
passed to the monophonic analysis engine. The first phase of analysis segments
the PCM sound data to...
This paper studies cluster ensembles for high dimensional data clustering. We examine three different approaches to constructing cluster ensembles. To address high dimensionality, we focus on ensemble construction methods that build on two popular dimension reduction techniques, random projection and principal component analysis (PCA). We present evidence showing that ensembles...
This paper is divided into two parts. The first part
traces (in details providing proofs and examples) the
history of the solutions of polynomial equations(of the
first, second, third, and fourth degree) by radicals from
Babylonian times (2000 B.C.) through 20th century. Also it
is shown that there is no...
