151 2-D scene analysis using split-level relaxationWe present a new method for applying multiple semantic constraints based on discrete relaxation. A separate graph is maintained for each constraint relation and used in parallel to achieve a consistent labeling. This permits both local and global analysis without recourse to complete graphs. Here l...Discrete relaxation; Split-level relaxation1985
152 The importance of unknows in Epidemiologic studies1. Epidemiologic study data often include omitted/unobtainable responses (unknowns). In most cases, unknowns are eliminated during data-reduction to facilitate analysis. We examined the effect that elimination of unknowns would have on mortality calculations using data on newborns admitted to a newb...Unknowns; Mortality calculations1985
153 A new local basis for designing with tensioned splinesRecently there has been a great deal of interest in the use of "tension" parameters to augment control mesh vertices as design handles for piecewise polynomials. A particular local cubic basis called p-splines, which has been termed a "generalization of B-splines", has been proposed as an appropriat...Tensioned splines1985
154 CAGD based 3-D visual recognitionA coherent automated manufacturing system needs to include CAD/CAM, computer vision, and object manipulation. Currently, most systems which support CAD/CAM do not provide for vision or manipulation and similarly, vision and manipulation systems incorporate no explicit relation to CAD/CAM models. CAD...Visual recognition; Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD)1986
155 Combining symbolic and numeric computation on the CRAYIt is now widely accepted that the CRAY supercomputers are very useful for large numeric applications, e.g., Finite Element Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Image Processing, etc. Much work has been done to make them run efficiently on the CRAY. There has also been some effort to do symbolic computing (Al ...CRAY supercomputers; Symbolic computation; Numeric computation1986
156 Simon II kernel reference manualThe principal objective of Simon II is to provide a flexible and adaptable framework for constructing simulators for a wide variety of parallel systems. A simulator consists of a set of software building blocks.

157 A survey of dextrous manipulationThe development of mechanical end effectors capable of dextrous manipulation is a rapidly growing and quite successful field of research. It has in some sense put the focus on control issues, in particular, how to control these remarkably humanlike manipulators to perform the deft movement that we t...Dextrous manipulation1986

160 Ada-to-silicon compiler study (Final Report 30 Jan 85 - 30 Jun 86)The vision of a system design environment in which both hardware and software components could be designed, tested, and executed was proffered by the late Dr. Elliott Organick1 in 1981. He was impressed by the objectiveness of Ada and the availability of an architecture (the Intel 432) which was sp...ADA language1986
161 Systolic array synthesis by static analysis of program dependenciesWe present a technique for mapping recurrence equations to systolic arrays. While this problem has been studied in fairly great detail, the recurrence equations that are analysed here are a generalization of those studied previously. In a n earlier paper (14] we have showed how systolic arrays can b...Systolic array synthesis; static analysis; program dependencies; recurrence equations1986
162 Complexity of computing topological degree of Lipschitz functions in n dimensionsWe find lower and upper bounds on the complexity, comp(deg), of computing t h e topological degree of functions defined on the n-dimensional unit cube Cn, f : ?Cn Rn,n ? 2, which satisfy a Lipschitz condition with constant K and whose infinity norm at each point on t h e boundary of Cn is at least d...Lipschitz functions1986
163 Multisensor knowledge systemsWe describe an approach which facilitates and makes explicit the organization of the knowledge necessary to map multisensor system requirements onto an appropriate assembly of algorithms, processors, sensors, and actuators. We have previously introduced the Multisensor Kernel System and Logical Sen...Multisensors; Multisensor Kernel System; Multisensor systems1986

170 User's manual for the sisyphus simulation environmentThis report describes how to create and simulate a design with Sisyphus. Inasmuch as Sisyphus is written in Symbolics-Lisp, some familiarity with both Lisp and with Symbolics computers is presumed. In addition, the concepts presented here presume an acquaintance with [3].
