Planning and acting in partially observable stochastic domains
 ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
, 1998
"... In this paper, we bring techniques from operations research to bear on the problem of choosing optimal actions in partially observable stochastic domains. We begin by introducing the theory of Markov decision processes (mdps) and partially observable mdps (pomdps). We then outline a novel algorithm ..."

Computing From Partial Solutions
 Proc. of 14th Annual IEEE Conference on Computation Complexity
, 1997
"... We consider the question: Is finding just a part of a solution easier than finding the full solution? For example, is finding only an ffl fraction of the bits in a satisfying assignment to a 3CNF formula easier than computing the whole assignment? For several important problems in NP we show that o ..."

. On the negative side, any partial solution to these problems may be hard to find. For example, unless NP ` BPP there is no efficient algorithm which always finds p n bits of a satisfying assignment of a 3CNF formula with n variables. University of Texas at Austin. Part of this work was done while at DIMACS
Partial Solution and Entropy
 MFCS 2009, LNCS 5734
, 2009
"... Abstract. If the given problem instance is partially solved, we want to minimize our effort to solve the problem using that information. In this paper we introduce the measure of entropy H(S) for uncertainty in partially solved input data S(X) = (X1,..., Xk), where X is the entire data set, and eac ..."

Greedy Randomized Adaptive Search Procedures
, 2002
"... GRASP is a multistart metaheuristic for combinatorial problems, in which each iteration consists basically of two phases: construction and local search. The construction phase builds a feasible solution, whose neighborhood is investigated until a local minimum is found during the local search phas ..."

solution construction mechanisms and techniques to speed up the search are also described: Reactive GRASP, cost perturbations, bias functions, memory and learning, local search on partially constructed solutions, hashing, and filtering. We also discuss in detail implementation strategies of memory
Nonlinear total variation based noise removal algorithms
, 1992
"... A constrained optimization type of numerical algorithm for removing noise from images is presented. The total variation of the image is minimized subject to constraints involving the statistics of the noise. The constraints are imposed using Lagrange multipliers. The solution is obtained using the g ..."

the gradientprojection method. This amounts to solving a time dependent partial differential equation on a manifold determined by the constraints. As t ~ 0o the solution converges to a steady state which is the denoised image. The numerical algorithm is simple and relatively fast. The results appear
RealTime Tracking of NonRigid Objects using Mean Shift
 IEEE CVPR 2000
, 2000
"... A new method for realtime tracking of nonrigid objects seen from a moving camera isproposed. The central computational module is based on the mean shift iterations and nds the most probable target position in the current frame. The dissimilarity between the target model (its color distribution) an ..."

) and the target candidates is expressed by a metric derived from the Bhattacharyya coefficient. The theoretical analysis of the approach shows that it relates to the Bayesian framework while providing a practical, fast and efficient solution.

Robust Uncertainty Principles: Exact Signal Reconstruction From Highly Incomplete Frequency Information
, 2006
"... This paper considers the model problem of reconstructing an object from incomplete frequency samples. Consider a discretetime signal and a randomly chosen set of frequencies. Is it possible to reconstruct from the partial knowledge of its Fourier coefficients on the set? A typical result of this pa ..."

Object Recognition from Local ScaleInvariant Features
"... An object recognition system has been developed that uses a new class of local image features. The features are invariant to image scaling, translation, and rotation, and partially invariant to illumination changes and affine or 3D projection. These features share similar properties with neurons in ..."

An equilibrium characterization of the term structure.
 J. Financial Econometrics
, 1977
"... The paper derives a general form of the term structure of interest rates. The following assumptions are made: (A.l) The instantaneous (spot) interest rate follows a diffusion process; (A.2) the price of a discount bond depends only on the spot rate over its term; and (A.3) the market is efficient. ..."

. Under these assumptions, it is shown by means of an arbitrage argument that the expected rate of return on any bond in excess of the spot rate is proportional to its standard deviation. This property is then used to derive a partial differential equation for bond prices. The solution to that equation
