  • A first best toll pricing framework for variable demand traffic assignment problems 

    Yildirim, Mehmet Bayram; Hearn, Donald W. (Elsevier, 2005)
    In this paper, we present a toll pricing framework for a general variable demand traffic assignment problem with side constraints, where the demand between an origin destination pair is a function of the least total travel ...
  • The first stage in two-stage template matching 

    Li, Xiaobo; Dubes, Richard C. (IEEE, 1985-11)
    This paper formulates the problem encountered in the first stage of two-stage, binary template matching as a set of hypotheses to be tested, including a hypothesis of "no object." Two new statistics R and G are proposed, ...
  • Five heads are better than one: an interdisciplinary graduate course on Smart Grids: lessons, challenges, and opportunities 

    Namboodiri, Vinod; Aravinthan, Visvakumar; Joseph, Siny; Sawan, M. Edwin; Jewell, Ward T. (IEEE-INST Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2013-01)
    According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE ), “Smart grid generally refers to a class of technology people are using to bring utility electricity delivery into the 21st century, using computer-based remote control and ...
  • Flexible autonomous robotic task scheduling using advanced RISC machines 

    Zaccagni, Zachary James (Wichita State University, 2008-08)
