The description list of concepts

A concept is defined as a class of objects whose members can be distinguished by processing its properties. Property is defined to mean a partition of the set of all objects into disjoint classes. The formal definition of a concept …

Further remarks on line segment curve-fitting using dynamic programming

In a recent paper, Bellman showed how dynamic programming could be used to determine the solution to a problem previously considered by Stone. The problem comprises the determination, given N, of the N points of subdivision of …

A set of matrices for testing computer programs

A procedure for inverting large symmetric matrices

In the least squares method for simultaneous adjustment of several parameters, the coefficients of the normal equations are the elements of a symmetric positive-definite matrix. In order to solve the normal equations and evaluate …

Analysis of a file addressing method

This paper presents a new file addressing method based on the calculation of an address from the identification of a record. For large recirculating type files, it seems to be more advantageous than customary ones. The probability …
