We present a data structure and an algorithm for efficient and exact interference detection amongst complex models undergoing rigid motion. The algorithm is applicable to all general polygonal and curved models. It precomputes a hierarchical representation of models using tightfitting oriented bounding box trees. At runtime, the algorithm traverses the tree and tests for overlaps between oriented bounding boxes based on a new separating axis theorem, which takes less than 200 operations in practice. It has been implemented and we compare its performance with other hierarchical data structures. In particular, it can accurately detect all the contacts between large complex geometries composed of hundreds of thousands of polygons at interactive rates, almost one order of magnitude faster than earlier methods.

Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROC) graphs are a useful technique for organizing classifiers and visualizing their performance. ROC graphs are commonly used in medical decision making, and in recent years have been increasingly adopted in the machine learning and data mining research communities. Although ROC graphs are apparently simple, there are some common misconceptions and pitfalls when using them in practice. This article serves both as a tutorial introduction to ROC graphs and as a practical guide for using them in research.

In realworld environments it is usually difficult to specify target operating conditions precisely. This uncertainty makes building robust classification systems problematic. We present a method for the comparison of classifier performance that is robust to imprecise class distributions and misclassification costs. The ROC convex hull method combines techniques from ROC analysis, decision analysis and computational geometry, and adapts them to the particulars of analyzing learned classifiers. The method is efficient and incremental, minimizes the management of classifier performance data, and allows for clear visual comparisons and sensitivity analyses. We then show that it is possible to build a hybrid classifier that will perform at least as well as the best available classifier for any target conditions. This robust performance extends across a wide variety of comparison frameworks, including the optimization of metrics such as accuracy, expected cost, lift, precision, recall, and ...

Research in robotic grasping has flourished in the last 25 years. A recent survey by Bicchi [1] covered over 140 papers, and many more than that have been published. Stemming from our desire to implement some of the work in grasp analysis for particular hand designs, we created an interactive grasping simulator that can import a wide variety of hand and object models and can evaluate the grasps formed by these hands. This system, dubbed “GraspIt!,” has since expanded in scope to the point where we feel it could serve as a useful tool for other researchers in the field. To that end, we are making the system publicly available (GraspIt! is available for download for a variety of platforms from

A convex polytope P can be speci ed in two ways: as the convex hull of the vertex set V of P, or as the intersection of the set H of its facetinducing halfspaces. The vertex enumeration problem is to compute V from H. The facet enumeration problem it to compute H from V. These two problems are essentially equivalent under point/hyperplane duality. They are among the central computational problems in the theory of polytopes. It is open whether they can be solved in time polynomial in jHj + jVj. In this paper we consider the main known classes of algorithms for solving these problems. We argue that they all have at least one of two weaknesses: inability todealwell with "degeneracies," or, inability tocontrol the sizes of intermediate results. We then introduce families of polytopes that exercise those weaknesses. Roughly speaking, fatlattice or intricate polytopes cause algorithms with bad degeneracy handling to perform badly; dwarfed polytopes cause algorithms with bad intermediate size control to perform badly. We also present computational experience with trying to solve these problem on these hard polytopes, using various implementations of the main algorithms.

. The double description method is a simple and useful algorithm for enumerating all extreme rays of a general polyhedral cone in IR d , despite the fact that we can hardly state any interesting theorems on its time and space complexities. In this paper, we reinvestigate this method, introduce some new ideas for efficient implementations, and show some empirical results indicating its practicality in solving highly degenerate problems. 1 Introduction A pair (A; R) of real matrices A and R is said to be a double description pair or simply a DD pair if the relationship Ax 0 if and only if x = R for some 0 holds. Clearly, for a pair (A; R) to be a DD pair, it is necessary that the column size of A is equal to the row size of R, say d. The term "double description" was introduced by Motzkin et al. [MRTT53], and it is quite natural in the sense that such a pair contains two different descriptions of the same object. Namely, the set P (A) represented by A as P (A) = fx 2 IR d : Ax...

AbstractTrusted IC design is a recently emerged topic since fabrication factories are moving worldwide in order to reduce cost. In order to get a lowcost but effective hardware Trojan detection method to complement traditional testing methods, a new behaviororiented category method is proposed to divide Trojans into two categories: explicit payload Trojan and implicit payload Trojan. This categorization method makes it possible to construct Trojan models and then lower the cost of testing. Path delays of nominal chips are collected to construct a series of fingerprints, each one representing one aspect of the total characteristics of a genuine design. Chips are validated by comparing their delay parameters to the fingerprints. The comparison of path delays makes small Trojan circuits significant from a delay point of view. The experiment's results show that the detection rate on explicit payload Trojans is 100%, while this method should be developed further if used to detect implicit payload Trojans.
