Determination of an Exact Symplectomorphism From Its Primitive Function.
"... . To an exact symplectomorphism on an exact symplectic manifold we can associate a primitive function, which is a primitive of a certain closed (in fact, exact) 1form. This function is also known by many authors as generating function, but as we remark, this function does not generate our symplecto ..."

Exokernel: An Operating System Architecture for ApplicationLevel Resource Management
, 1995
"... We describe an operating system architecture that securely multiplexes machine resources while permitting an unprecedented degree of applicationspecific customization of traditional operating system abstractions. By abstracting physical hardware resources, traditional operating systems have signifi ..."

significantly limited the performance, flexibility, and functionality of applications. The exokernel architecture removes these limitations by allowing untrusted software to implement traditional operating system abstractions entirely at applicationlevel. We have implemented a prototype exokernelbased system
Rendering of Surfaces from Volume Data
 IEEE COMPUTER GRAPHICS AND APPLICATIONS
, 1988
"... The application of volume rendering techniques to the display of surfaces from sampled scalar functions of three spatial dimensions is explored. Fitting of geometric primitives to the sampled data is not required. Images are formed by directly shading each sample and projecting it onto the picture ..."

An equation involving the square sum of natural numbers and Smarandache primitive function
"... Abstract For any positive integer n, let Sp(n) denotes the Smarandache primitive function. The main purpose of this paper is using the elementary methods to study the number of the solutions of the equation Sp(1 ..."

A THEORY ON THE ORIGIN OF SPIDERS AND THE PRIMITIVE FUNCTION OF SPIDER SILK
"... The primitive function of spider silk is commonly thought to have been associated ~dth any of three typical behavior patterns seen in the bulk of spiders today: (1) egg protection, (2) prey capture, and (3) shelter building. It is argued here that a primitive function in egg protection and prey capt ..."

Mobile Values, New Names, and Secure Communication
, 2001
"... We study the interaction of the "new" construct with a rich but common form of (firstorder) communication. This interaction is crucial in security protocols, which are the main motivating examples for our work; it also appears in other programminglanguage contexts. Specifically, we intro ..."

introduce a simple, general extension of the pi calculus with value passing, primitive functions, and equations among terms. We develop semantics and proof techniques for this extended language and apply them in reasoning about some security protocols.
Universal OneWay Hash Functions and their Cryptographic Applications
, 1989
"... We define a Universal OneWay Hash Function family, a new primitive which enables the compression of elements in the function domain. The main property of this primitive is that given an element x in the domain, it is computationally hard to find a different domain element which collides with x. We ..."

Tracking multiple independent targets: Evidence for a parallel tracking mechanism
 Spatial Vision
, 1988
"... AbstractThere is considerable evidence that visual attention is concentrated at a single locus in the visual field, and that this locus can be moved independent of eye movements. Two studies are reported which suggest that, while certain aspects of attention require that locations\be scanned serial ..."

performance of a serial scanning and updating algorithm would not exceed about 40 % accuracy, subjects still manage to do the task with 87 % accuracy. These findings are discussed in relation to an earlier, and independently motivated model of featurebindingcalled the FINST modelwhich posits a primitive
Evolving Virtual Creatures
 in SIGGRAPH 94 Conference Proceedings, ser. Annual Conference Series
, 1994
"... This paper describes a novel system for creating virtual creatures that move and behave in simulated threedimensional physical worlds. The morphologies of creatures and the neural systems for controlling their muscle forces are both generated automatically using genetic algorithms. Different fitnes ..."

 Add to MetaCart
fitness evaluation functions are used to direct simulated evolutions towards specific behaviors such as swimming, walking, jumping, and following. A genetic language is presented that uses nodes and connections as its primitive elements to represent directed graphs, which are used to describe both
NonLinear Approximation of Reflectance Functions
, 1997
"... We introduce a new class of primitive functions with nonlinear parameters for representing light reflectance functions. The functions are reciprocal, energyconserving and expressive. They can capture important phenomena such as offspecular reflection, increasing reflectance and retroreflection. ..."
