The coordination number of granular cylinders
, 2006
"... Abstract. – We report the first experimental measurements of the contact number distribution between randomly packed granular right cylinders (rods and disks) as a function of aspect ratio. The average coordination number 〈z 〉 for cylinders varies smoothly with aspect ratio rising from 〈z 〉 ∼ 6 for ..."

Distribution of volumes and coordination number in
, 808
"... We investigate the distribution of the volume and coordination number associated to each particle in a jammed packing of monodisperse hard sphere using the mesoscopic ensemble developed in Nature 453, 606 (2008). Theory predicts an exponential distribution of the orientational volumes for random clo ..."

Next century challenges: Scalable coordination in sensor networks
, 1999
"... Networked sensorsthose that coordinate amongst themselves to achieve a larger sensing taskwill revolutionize information gathering and processing both in urban environments and in inhospitable terrain. The sheer numbers of these sensors and the expected dynamics in these environments present uniq ..."

Performance Analysis of the IEEE 802.11 Distributed Coordination Function
, 2000
"... Recently, the IEEE has standardized the 802.11 protocol for Wireless Local Area Networks. The primary medium access control (MAC) technique of 802.11 is called distributed coordination function (DCF). DCF is a carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) scheme with binary slott ..."

Closedform solution of absolute orientation using unit quaternions
 J. Opt. Soc. Am. A
, 1987
"... Finding the relationship between two coordinate systems using pairs of measurements of the coordinates of a number of points in both systems is a classic photogrammetric task. It finds applications in stereophotogrammetry and in robotics. I present here a closedform solution to the leastsquares pr ..."

A Tutorial on Visual Servo Control
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION
, 1996
"... This paper provides a tutorial introduction to visual servo control of robotic manipulators. Since the topic spans many disciplines our goal is limited to providing a basic conceptual framework. We begin by reviewing the prerequisite topics from robotics and computer vision, including a brief review ..."

review of coordinate transformations, velocity representation, and a description of the geometric aspects of the image formation process. We then present a taxonomy of visual servo control systems. The two major classes of systems, positionbased and imagebased systems, are then discussed. Since any
Dictionary of protein secondary structure: pattern recognition of hydrogenbonded and geometrical features
, 1983
"... For a successful analysis of the relation between amino acid sequence and protein structure, an unambiguous and physically meaningful definition of secondary structure is essential. We have developed a set of simple and physically motivated criteria for secondary structure, programmed as a patternr ..."

Cooperative secondary structure is recognized as repeats of the elementary hydrogenbonding patterns “turn ” and “bridge. ” Repeating turns are “helices, ” repeating bridges are “ladders, ” connected ladders are “sheets
The Dantzig selector: statistical estimation when p is much larger than n
, 2005
"... In many important statistical applications, the number of variables or parameters p is much larger than the number of observations n. Suppose then that we have observations y = Ax + z, where x ∈ R p is a parameter vector of interest, A is a data matrix with possibly far fewer rows than columns, n ≪ ..."

Features of similarity.
 Psychological Review
, 1977
"... Similarity plays a fundamental role in theories of knowledge and behavior. It serves as an organizing principle by which individuals classify objects, form concepts, and make generalizations. Indeed, the concept of similarity is ubiquitous in psychological theory. It underlies the accounts of stimu ..."

. These models represent objects as points in some coordinate space such that the observed dissimilarities between objects correspond to the metric distances between the respective points. Practically all analyses of proximity data have been metric in nature, although some (e.g., hierarchical clustering) yield
Ontology Learning for the Semantic Web
 IEEE Intelligent Systems
, 2001
"... The Semantic Web relies heavily on the formal ontologies that structure underlying data for the purpose of comprehensive and transportable machine understanding. Therefore, the success of the Semantic Web depends strongly on the proliferation of ontologies, which requires fast and easy engineering o ..."

The vision of ontology learning that we propose here includes a number of complementary disciplines that feed on different types of unstructured, semi
