  • This document is a lecture for the Parallel Computing Summer Research Internship at LANL. It describes the Message Passing Interface and its application.
  • GenoBase integrates genomic information from many existing databases, offering convenient access to the curated data. This document is the first part of a two-part tutorial on how to use GenoBase for accessing integrated genomic data.
  • While the BCJ plasticity model is powerful in representing material behavior, finding values for the 20 parameters representing a particular material can be a daunting task. Bfit was designed to make this task at least feasible if not easy. The program has been developed over several years and incorporates the suggestions and requests of several users.
  • A rigorous study of sampled data control systems is very mathematical, so much so that the basic concepts are obscured and difficult to isolate. Basic concepts without mathenmtical derivation or justification and the impulse method of analysis are presented. The well-known continuous-system techniques of frequency analysis and transient analysis, as obtained from Nyquist's criterion and the root-locus diagram, are adaptable to sampled data systems. These techniques are described, and examples of each method are given. A short bibliography is included. A much more extensive bibliography is included in each of the listed references. (auth)
  • Extended Set Theory as a data base management discipline has received attention in the data base literature. Set Theoretic Information Systems Corporation has, for some time, marketed a data base system based on the foundation of Extended Set Theory. This system is called Set Theoretic Data Structures (STDS). A series of examples shows that STDS is similar to relational algebraic data base management systems. The advantages of STDS are its straight-forward data base design, compact data representation, and flexible, powerful data manipulation operators, while its limitations are its low-level primitive user interface and the partial implementation of the Extended Setmore » Theoretic concepts. To make STDS very attractive, a ''user-friendly'' interface should be developed, and some distinctive features of extended Set Theory (such as sets of sets) should be implemented. 8 figures, 1 table.« less
