Set Theoretic Data Structures (STDS): a tutorial
Abstract
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 straightforward data base design, compact data representation, and flexible, powerful data manipulation operators, while its limitations are its lowlevel primitive user interface and the partial implementation of the Extended Set Theoretic concepts. To make STDS very attractive, a ''userfriendly'' interface should be developed, and some distinctive features of extended Set Theory (such as sets of sets) should be implemented. 8 figures, 1 table.

This research project involved the development of mathematical models for analysis, synthesis, and simulation of large systems of interacting devices. The work was motivated by problems that may become important in highdensity VLSI chips with characteristic feature sizes less than 1 micron: it is anticipated that interactions of neighboring devices will play an important role in the determination of circuit properties. It is hoped that the combination of high device densities and such local interactions can somehow be exploited to increase circuit speed and to reduce power consumption. To address these issues from the point of view of system theory,more »

Accessing integrated genomic data using GenoBase: A tutorial, Part 1
GenoBase integrates genomic information from many existing databases, offering convenient access to the curated data. This document is the first part of a twopart tutorial on how to use GenoBase for accessing integrated genomic data. 
BFIT: A program to analyze and fit the BCJ model parameters to experimental data. Tutorial and user`s guide
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.

SAMPLED DATA SYSTEMSA TUTORIAL
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 wellknown continuoussystem techniques of frequency analysis and transient analysis, as obtained from Nyquist's criterion and the rootlocus 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)
