  • Rational algorithms for measuring the harmonic coefficient in microprocessor instruments for measuring nonlinear distortions based on digital processing of the codes of the instantaneous values of the signal being investigated are described and the errors of such instruments are obtained.
  • This paper introduces a new approach to definition of digital signal processing algorithms using bilinear form representation. The new algorithms are used to calculate power and line parameter values based on the current and voltage samples. The bilinear form approach provides a convenient methodology for optimal design of digital signal processing algorithms. This feature is utilized to design digital algorithms for power and line parameter measurements with low sensitivity to system frequency change. Several different algorithms are defined and their performance to system frequency change. Various sampling rates and different data windows are utilized to define several test cases.
  • Simulations of a scalable four compartment reaction model based on the well known epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signal transduction system are used to compare two stochastic algorithms ? StochSim and the Gibson-Gillespie. It is concluded that the Gibson-Gillespie is the algorithm of choice for most realistic cases with the possible exception of signal transduction networks characterized by a moderate number (< 100) of complex types, each with a very small population, but with a high degree of connectivity amongst the complex types. Keywords: Signal transduction networks, Stochastic simulation, StochSim, Gillespie
  • Emphasis is placed on progress toward the hardware realization of a numerical linear algebra library of functions. The objective is to utilize VLSI/VHSIC technology in parallel architectures to provide a real-time equivalent of the Linpack/Eispack capabilities. The authors discuss new architectures for the multiplication of dense matrices, configurations for partitioned matrix operations, and applications to crossambiguity function calculation. 12 references.
  • Ultrasonic analysis is being explored as a way to capture events during melting of highly dispersive wax. Typical events include temperature changes in the material, phase transition of the material, surface flows and reformations, and void filling as the material melts. Melt tests are performed with wax to evaluate the usefulness of different signal processing algorithms in capturing event data. Several algorithm paths are being pursued. The first looks at changes in the velocity of the signal through the material. This is only appropriate when the changes from one ultrasonic signal to the next can be represented by a linearmore » relationship, which is not always the case. The second tracks changes in the frequency content of the signal. The third algorithm tracks changes in the temporal moments of a signal over a full test. This method does not require that the changes in the signal be represented by a linear relationship, but attaching changes in the temporal moments to physical events can be difficult. This study describes the algorithm paths applied to experimental data from ultrasonic signals as wax melts and explores different ways to display the results.« less
