    Description:

    An approach for approximate kinematic synthesis of mechanisms which computes a graph that identifies minima of an objective function as vertices and connections between them as edges. Such a graph is interactively presented to a designer, whereby edges are continuously traversed to navigate families of design candidates in between minima. Candidates are evaluated continuously according to auxiliary considerations for the exploration of design trade-offs. Computing the aforementioned graphs be…

    Abstract:

    This report reflects the deliberations and conclusions of an NSF-wide Workshop to explore the prospects for a common response to the requirements for public access to research data. Representatives of almost all of the NSF Directorates convened in Alexandria, VA, February 22 and 23, 2018, to review a diverse and multi-disciplinary collection of projects and workshops that have been conducted in the recent past. All of these activities were focused on aspects of public access to research data,…

    Abstract:

    The mathematician Marston Morse (1892–1977) argued in several papers and popular lectures that mathematics is ‘‘the sister as well as the servant of the arts’’ ([18], p. 55). Although he formally presented this position in a talk presented in 1950 at a conference at Kenyon College in honor of Robert Frost, his view evolved over the course of his mathematical life. In this article, we trace the development of his theory, present his arguments, show how the arguments are a reflection of his mat…

    Description:

    May studies here during the unfolding years bring growing radiance to the light of scientific learning enkindled at Notre Dame by Fathers Alexander M. Kirsch (1855-1923) and Francis J. Wenninger (1888-1940), Priests of Holy Cross, Teacher-Scholars in the Life Sciences, Deans.

    They have sown the seeds of learning which through years of patient growth give rich yield: thirty-fold, sixty-fold, a hundred-fold. …

    Abstract:

    We analyze the regression accuracy of convolutional neural networks assembled from encoders, decoders and skip connections and trained with multifidelity data. These networks benefit from a significant reduction in the number of trainable parameters with respect to an equivalent fully connected network. These architectures are also versatile with respect to the input and output dimensionality. For example, encoder-decoder, decoder-encoder or decoder-encoder-decoder architectures are well suit…

    Abstract:

    A cluster-randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial was conducted to estimate the protective efficacy (PE) of a spatial repellent (SR) against malaria infection in Sumba, Indonesia. Following radical cure in 1,341 children aged ³ 6 months to £ 5 years in 24 clusters, households were given transfluthrin or placebo passive emanators (devices designed to release vaporized chemical). Monthly blood screening and biweekly human-landing mosquito catches were performed during a 10-month ba…

    Description:

    Synthesis problems for linkages in kinematics often yield large structured parameterized polynomial systems which generically have far fewer solutions than traditional upper bounds would suggest. This paper describes statistical models for estimating the generic number of solutions of such parameterized polynomial systems. The new approach extends previous work on success ratios of parameter homotopies to using monodromy loops as well as the addition of a trace test that provides a stopping…

    Description:

    Polynomials which arise via elimination can be difficult to compute explicitly. By using a pseudo-witness set, we develop an algorithm to explicitly compute the restriction of a polynomial to a given line. The resulting polynomial can then be used to evaluate the original polynomial and directional derivatives along the line at any point on the given line. Several examples are used to demonstrate this new algorithm including examples of computing the critical points of the discriminant locu…
