    • A Novel Continuum Manipulator 

      Cochrane, Eric C (2015-09-21)
      We address the problem of controlling continuum manipulators and evaluate Reinforcement Learning to produce a control policy for a robotic platform. Our approach discretizes the state and action spaces to reduce the training ...
    • An adaptive application of multiquadric interpolants for numerically modeling large numbers of irregularly spaced hydrographic data 

      Schiro, Richard Anthon (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1982)
      The approximation or interpolation of irregularly spaced data in two or higher dimensions is extremely difficult in contrast to the one dimensional case. No one method works well in all instances with the possible exception ...
    • Adaptive topological configuration of an integrated circuit/packet-switched computer network 

      Kiemele, Mark Ja (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1984)
      This research investigates the performance and design of integrated circuit/packet-switched computer-communication networks. The integrated network under consideration has a circuit-switched communications subnet whose ...
    • An AI System for Coaching Novice Programmers 

      Cruz, Gilberto; Jones, Jacob; Morrow, Meagan (2015-10-23)
      Rapidly giving students meaningful feedback is a key component in an effective educational experience. A common problem in modern education is scalability, as class size increases the ability of the instructor to rapidly ...
    • Analysis of a hybrid algorithm for packing unequal bins 

      Kuhl, Frederick Stephe (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1983)
      We consider a bin-packing problem where the sizes of the bins are allowed to vary and where the goal is to maximize the number of pieces packed. This problem is NP-Hard. We examine a new efficient approximation algorithm ...
    • Analyzing the Flow of Information from Initial Publishing to Wikipedia 

      Villanueva, Nathan T
      This thesis covers my efforts at researching the factors that lead to a research paper being cited by Wikipedia. Wikipedia is one of the most popular websites on the internet for quickly learning about a specific topic. ...
    • The design and implementation of an ecological simulation development environment 

      George, Leroy Conra (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1985)
      Researchers have suggested two approaches for designing software development environments (SDEs) aimed at alleviating the software crisis: an evolutionary approach that supports the contemporary software life cycle model ...
    • IMEGS, an incremental multi-language editor generator and system 

      Bagert, Donald Josep (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1986)
      A limitation of current selection-entry syntax-directed editors is that a particular editor is limited to manipulating programs in one particular programming language. The IMEGS research project was initiated with one of ...
    • A language directed software development environment 

      Reese, Richard Marti (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1983)
      This paper presents the design and prototype implementation of a language directed Software Development Environment (SDE) which permits the hiding of developmental information, provides a flexible means of control of the ...
    • Medial-Axis Biased Rapidly-Exploring Random Trees 

      Greco, Evan (2012-05-09)
      RRTs (Rapidly-Exploring Random Trees) have shown wide applications in robotics. RRTs are a type of sampling-based motion planners that expand to fill the space starting from one or more root configurations. RRTs are excellent ...
    • A methodology for the analysis of programmer productivity and effort estimation within the framework of software conversion 

      Fernandez, John Dieg (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1984)
      Software conversion is becoming increasingly significant as the inventory of programs increases and as the life cycle of many applications becomes longer. Although some work has been done in the area of software conversion, ...
    • Multifunction minimization for Programmable Logic Arrays 

      Campbell, John Ala (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1984)
      The problem of minimizing two-level AND/OR Boolean algebraic functions of n inputs and m outputs for implementation on Programmable Logic Arrays (PLA) is examined. The theory of multiple-output functions as well as the ...
    • Parallel algorithms for proximity problems 

      Chao, Kim Keh-Chin (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1990)
      Proximity problems deal with "closeness" of points in a finite set in k-dimensional space under some distance metric L (subscript p). These problems arise in many applications such as pattern recognition, wire routing, and ...
    • The STAPL Parallel Container Framework 

      Tanase, Ilie Gabriel (2012-02-14)
      The Standard Template Adaptive Parallel Library (STAPL) is a parallel programming infrastructure that extends C with support for parallelism. STAPL provides a run-time system, a collection of distributed data structures ...
    • The systolic architecture for hierarchical clustering 

      Ku, Long-Chia (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1984)
      Several hierarchical clustering methods (including single-linkage, complete-linkage, centroid, and absolute overlap methods) are reviewed. The absolute overlap clustering method is selected for the design of systolic ...
    • Yawn Detection Using Support Vector Machine Classification 

      Mayilvahanan, Sarvesh
      A model to detect yawning in a video sequence from a regular camera is proposed. Landmark detectors are able to quickly and accurately estimate the pose of a face with various amounts of light and facial expressions. We ...
