Title: Multi-phase-center IFSAR.

Abstract

We present new methods for resolving IFSAR ambiguities and SAR layover. The analytic properties of these techniques make them well suited for reliable, efficient computation.

  • In this paper we trace the evolution of the Lowdin alpha-function method in its application to multi-center molecular integrals over Slater-type orbitals (STOs). As is well-known, any STO displaced from the origin can be expanded in an infinite series of spherical harmonics; the functional coefficients have been designated as Lowdin alpha functions. These alpha functions can be represented as exponentials multiplied by polynomials in the displacement distance and the radial distance. The polynomials are used to construct a C matrix with integer elements. To avoid cancellation errors in some cases, the exponentials are expanded to obtain E matrices for interiormore » regions and F matrices for exterior regions. We believe that this careful approach to molecular integrals will succeed in producing accurate and rapid evaluation of the integrals needed in STO basis-set methods for quantum chemistry.« less
  • A summary is given of the discussion at the design review meeting for the solar heating and hot water system for the Multi-Purpose Senior Center held on January 23, 1978 at the Redstone Arsenal. Schematic diagrams for total solar-HVAC, direct solar heating, solar domestic water heating; heating from storage, and store solar heat are attached.
  • An information analysis center (IAC) is a federal resource that provides technical information for a specific technology field. An IAC links an expert technical staff with an experienced information specialist group, supported by in-house or external data bases to provide technical information and maintain a corporate knowledge in a technical area. An IAC promotes the rapid transfer of technology among its users and provides assistance in adopting new technology and predicting and assessing emerging technology. This document outlines the concept, requirements, and proposed development of an Environmental Quality IAC (EQIAC). An EQIAC network is composed of several nodes, each ofmore » which has specific technology capabilities. This document outlines strategic and operational objectives for the phased development of one such node of an EQIAC network.« less
