Image Segmentation Using An Annealed Hopfield Neural Network, Yungsik Kim, Sarah A. Rajala Dec 1992

Image Segmentation Using An Annealed Hopfield Neural Network, Yungsik Kim, Sarah A. Rajala

Sarah A. Rajala

Good image segmentation can be achieved by finding the optimum solution to an appropriate energy function. A Hopfield neural network has been shown to solve complex optimization problems fast, but it only guarantees convergence to a local minimum of the optimization function. Alternatively, mean field annealing has been shown to reach the global or the nearly global optimum solution when solving optimization problems. Furthermore, it has been shown that there is a relationship between a Hopfield neural network and mean field annealing. In this paper, we combine the advantages of the Hopfield neural network and the mean field annealing algorithm ...


The Elastic Moduli Of Simple Two-Dimensional Isotropic Composites: Computer Simulation And Effective Medium Theory, K. A. Snyder, E. J. Garboczi, Anthony Roy Day Dec 1992

The Elastic Moduli Of Simple Two-Dimensional Isotropic Composites: Computer Simulation And Effective Medium Theory, K. A. Snyder, E. J. Garboczi, Anthony Roy Day

Anthony Roy Day

An algorithm, combining digital-image with spring network techniques, has been developed that enables computation of the elastic moduli of random two-dimensional multiphase composites. This algorithm is used to study the case of isotropic, randomly centered, overlapping circular inclusions in an isotropic elastic matrix. The results of the algorithm for the few-inclusion limit, as well as the case where both phases have the same shear moduli, agree well with the exact results for these two problems. The case where the two phases have the same Poisson’s ratio, but different Young’s moduli, is also studied, and it is shown that ...

Possible Applications Of Neural Nets To Power System Operation And Control, P. K. Kalra, Alok Srivastava, D. K. Chaturvedi Dec 1992

Possible Applications Of Neural Nets To Power System Operation And Control, P. K. Kalra, Alok Srivastava, D. K. Chaturvedi

D. K. Chaturvedi Dr.

Problems related to power system operation and control are complex and time consuming because of the non-linearities involved in their formulation and solution. Fast solutions to these problems can be obtained only through parallel processing. Neural nets provide massive parallel processing facilities and may also be used efficiently to model systems with non-linearities. The capabilities of neural nets can, therefore, be well utilized in modelling and processing problems related to power systems. In order to reduce the burden on computers, algorithms involving optimization and complex equations can be converted to heuristics. These heuristics can then be represented in terms of ...

Nest Usurpation, Supersedure And Colony Failure Contribute To Africanization Of Commercially Managed European Honey Bees In Venezuela, Robert G. Danka, Richard L. Hellmich, Thomas E. Rinderer Dec 1992

Nest Usurpation, Supersedure And Colony Failure Contribute To Africanization Of Commercially Managed European Honey Bees In Venezuela, Robert G. Danka, Richard L. Hellmich, Thomas E. Rinderer

Richard L Hellmich

The fates of 58 colonies in 4 apiaries managed commercially for honey production in northwest Venezuela were determined during 15 months. All colonies had been previously requeened with marked European queens. Heritage of new queens (European daughter replacements versus Africanized usurpers) was traced by mitochondrial DNA and morphological characteristics of worker progeny. Three usurpations (5% of colony fates, at a rate of 4.7% of colonies per year) occurred. These colonies showed congruent African-derived mitochondrial DNA and Africanized morphology. Supersedures accounted for much of the introgression of African genes into the test apiaries. Twenty-eight colonies (48%) superseded their queens once ...


Failure Of The Congo Red Dye Uptake Test To Discriminate Between Virulent And Avirulent Avian Escherichia Coli, Kathy R. Spears, Richard E. Wooley, John Brown, Lisa K. Nolan Dec 1992

Failure Of The Congo Red Dye Uptake Test To Discriminate Between Virulent And Avirulent Avian Escherichia Coli, Kathy R. Spears, Richard E. Wooley, John Brown, Lisa K. Nolan

Lisa K. Nolan

Twenty avian Escherichia coli isolates from normal and diseased chickens were compared by use of three virulence tests. These tests included the uptake of Congo red dye, an embryo lethality test, and a quantitative microtiter complement resistance test. A direct correlation was seen between the results of the complement resistance test and the embryo lethality test. The results of the Congo red test did not correlate with the two other tests.


Isolation And Characterization Of The Tricarboxylate Transporter From Pea Mitochondria, Cecilia A. Mcintosh, David J. Oliver Dec 1992

Isolation And Characterization Of The Tricarboxylate Transporter From Pea Mitochondria, Cecilia A. Mcintosh, David J. Oliver

David J. Oliver

The tricarboxylate transporter was solubilized from pea (Pisum sativum) mitochondria with Triton X-114, partially purified over a hydroxylapatite column, and reconstituted in phospholipid vesicles. The proteoliposomes exchanged external [14C]citrate for internal citrate or malate but not for preloaded D,L-isocitrate. Similarly, although external malate, succinate, and citrate competed with [14C]citrate in the exchange reaction, D,L-isocitrate and phosphoenolpyruvate did not. This tricarboxylate transporter differed from the equivalent activity from animal tissues in that it did not transport isocitrate and phosphoenolpyruvate. In addition, tricarboxylate transport in isolated plant mitochondria, as well as that measured with the partially purified and ...

Gerald Alvin Peterson

Cross sections for inclusive electron scattering from aluminum have been measured at both forward and backward angles in the kinematic region near x =1 and 1.75 & Q & 7 (GeV/c) . The forward-angle data are in good agreement with a recent calculation. Both the data and the calculation show scaling behavior for F2(g, Q~)=vs(g, Q2) at high Q for fixed values of the Nachtmann variable g. The ratio R =oL /trr has been extracted for 1.75 &Q &5 (GeV/c) and is found to decrease with Q2 to a value consistent with zero at the highest ...

A Review Of The Factors Influencing The Growth Of The Northern Quahog, Mercenaria Mercenaria (Linnaeus, 1758), Michael A. Rice, Jan A. Pechenik Nov 1992

A Review Of The Factors Influencing The Growth Of The Northern Quahog, Mercenaria Mercenaria (Linnaeus, 1758), Michael A. Rice, Jan A. Pechenik

Michael A Rice

Factors affecting the growth of larval, juvenile, and adult northern quahogs, Mercenaria mercenaria, are reviewed. Larval growth is affected by temperature, salinity, current speed, dissolved oxygen concentration, and the amount of suspended sediments in the water, along with such nutritional factors as food quantity and quality. Growth of post-set juvenile and adult quahogs is similarly affected by the same physical and nutritional factors. Recent work suggests that there is a strong genetic contribution to quahog growth rate and that selective breeding programs may be useful for producing rapid growth strains. A growing body of evidence suggests that larval growth rates ...

Predicting The Growth Of Salmonella Typhimurium On Beef By Using The Temperature Function Integration Technique, James S. Dickson, G. R. Siragusa, J. E. Wray Jr. Nov 1992

Predicting The Growth Of Salmonella Typhimurium On Beef By Using The Temperature Function Integration Technique, James S. Dickson, G. R. Siragusa, J. E. Wray Jr.

James S. Dickson

Lag and generation times for the growth of Salmonella typhimurium on sterile lean beef were modeled as functions of cooling time under various carcass-chilling scenarios. Gompertz growth models were fit to the log10 colony counts over time at each of six temperatures in the range of 15 to 40 degrees C. Lag and generation times were defined as the points at which the second and first derivatives, respectively, of each growth curve attained a maximum. Generation time and lag time parameters were modeled as functions of temperature by use of exponential-decay models. The models were applied to typical beef carcass-cooling ...


Segmentation-Based Texture Coding Algorithm For Packet Video: A Goal-Oriented Approach, Day-Fann Shen, Sarah A. Rajala Nov 1992

Segmentation-Based Texture Coding Algorithm For Packet Video: A Goal-Oriented Approach, Day-Fann Shen, Sarah A. Rajala

Sarah A. Rajala

The design of an image coder for packet-switched transmission is formulated as a minimization problem. A general set of design requirements is derived and used to design a segmentation-based texture coding algorithm. The segmentation process is performed on a pyramid data structure and uses the just noticeable difference (JND) of the human visual system as the merge criterion. To reduce the bit-rate while maintaining image quality, each region is classified as either texture or non-texture. Texture regions are approximated by a one-dimensional polynomial, while the non-texture regions are approximated by the region's mean intensity. A set of parameters for ...


Π-Bond Strengths Of H2x=Yh2: X = Ge Or Sn, And Y = C, Si, Ge, Or Sn, Theresa L. Windus, Mark S. Gordon Nov 1992

Π-Bond Strengths Of H2x=Yh2: X = Ge Or Sn, And Y = C, Si, Ge, Or Sn, Theresa L. Windus, Mark S. Gordon

Mark S. Gordon

The molecular structures and 1r-bond strengths are determined using both MP2 and MCSCF + CI energies for a series of H2X=YH2 compounds, where X = Ge or Sn and Y = C, Si, Ge, or Sn. These strengths are estimated both by evaluating the rotation barriers and by investigating the appropriate thermochemical cycles. The results show that C > Si ,.., Ge > Sn in their ability to form The molecular structures and 1r-bond strengths are determined using both MP2 and MCSCF + CI energies for a series of H2X=YH2 compounds, where X = Ge or Sn and Y = C, Si, Ge, or Sn.

Tracking Of Unresolved Targets In Infrared Imagery Using A Projection-Based Method, Jae-Ho Choi, Sarah A. Rajala Nov 1992

Tracking Of Unresolved Targets In Infrared Imagery Using A Projection-Based Method, Jae-Ho Choi, Sarah A. Rajala

Sarah A. Rajala

The conventional two-dimensional Hough transform technique is generalized into a projection- based transform method by using the modified Radon transform for estimating a three- dimensional target tracks embedded in a time-sequential set of image frames. The target of concern are dim, unresolved point targets moving along straight paths across a same field of view. Since the target signal-to-noise is low and the spatial extend of the target is less than a pixel, one must rely on integration over a target track which span over many image frames. Instead of processing the entire 3-D data set, a set of projections are ...


Segmentation-Based Motion Estimation And Residual Coding For Packet Video: A Goal-Oriented Approach, Day-Fann Shen, Sarah A. Rajala Nov 1992

Segmentation-Based Motion Estimation And Residual Coding For Packet Video: A Goal-Oriented Approach, Day-Fann Shen, Sarah A. Rajala

Sarah A. Rajala

Image transmission via packet switched networks has a significant impact on encoded image data. To develop an efficient image codec for packet video, the goals of image coding are redefined and formulated as an optimization problem. Guided by these goals, a set of design requirements and a new segmentation based coding technique is developed. This approach features region based motion estimation, region based residual coding and region based single frame coding. The performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated and a packet loss compensation algorithm is presented. As a result, good image quality at very low-bit rates can be achieved.

Climatology Of Surface-Based Inversions In The North American Arctic, Raymond S. Bradley, Frank T. Keimig Oct 1992

Climatology Of Surface-Based Inversions In The North American Arctic, Raymond S. Bradley, Frank T. Keimig

Raymond S Bradley

The annual cycle of surface-based inversions at nine Arctic weather stations is examined, based on a 20-year set of daily 1200 UT significant level radiosonde data. All stations are at or near the coast. Inversions in winter months are primarily the result of strongly negative net radiation at the surface, whereas in summer, inversionsmore commonly result from near-surface cooling of warm air muses. Inversion frequency is at a maximum inwinter (generally >70% of days) when inversions range from -400 to -850 m in thickness. Inversion thickness and strength (temperature change across the inversion) are strongly related to surface temperature. Inversions ...
