All Pairs Bottleneck Paths and MaxMin Matrix Products in Truly Subcubic Time
, 2009
"... In the all pairs bottleneck paths (APBP) problem, one is given a directed graph with real weights on its edges. Viewing the weights as capacities, one is asked to determine, for all pairs (s,t) of vertices, the maximum amount of flow that can be routed along a single path from s to t. The APBP pro ..."

problem was first studied in operations research, shortly after the introduction of maximum flows and all pairs shortest paths. We present the first truly subcubic algorithm for APBP in general dense graphs. In particular, we give a procedure for computing the (max,min)product of two arbitrary matrices
FAST VOLUME RENDERING USING A SHEARWARP FACTORIZATION OF THE VIEWING TRANSFORMATION
, 1995
"... Volume rendering is a technique for visualizing 3D arrays of sampled data. It has applications in areas such as medical imaging and scientific visualization, but its use has been limited by its high computational expense. Early implementations of volume rendering used bruteforce techniques that req ..."

Algorithms with optimizations that exploit coherence in the data have reduced rendering times to the range of ten seconds but are still not fast enough for interactive visualization applications. In this thesis we present a
Convex Analysis
, 1970
"... In this book we aim to present, in a unified framework, a broad spectrum of mathematical theory that has grown in connection with the study of problems of optimization, equilibrium, control, and stability of linear and nonlinear systems. The title Variational Analysis reflects this breadth. For a lo ..."

long time, ‘variational ’ problems have been identified mostly with the ‘calculus of variations’. In that venerable subject, built around the minimization of integral functionals, constraints were relatively simple and much of the focus was on infinitedimensional function spaces. A major theme

"... Recently, a number of researchers have investigated a class of graph partitioning algorithms that reduce the size of the graph by collapsing vertices and edges, partition the smaller graph, and then uncoarsen it to construct a partition for the original graph [Bui and Jones, Proc. ..."

The purpose of this chapter is to present a survey of recent publications concerning medical image registration techniques. These publications will be classified according to a model based on nine salient criteria, the main dichotomy of which is extrinsic versus intrinsic methods The statistics of the classification show definite trends in the evolving registration techniques, which will be discussed. At this moment, the bulk of interesting intrinsic methods is either based on segmented points or surfaces, or on techniques endeavoring to use the full information content of the images involved. Keywords: registration, matching Received May 25, 1997
Fast Parallel Algorithms for ShortRange Molecular Dynamics

Three parallel algorithms for classical molecular dynamics are presented. The first assigns each processor a fixed subset of atoms; the second assigns each a fixed subset of interatomic forces to compute; the third assigns each a fixed spatial region. The algorithms are suitable for molecular dynamics models which can be difficult to parallelize efficiently  those with shortrange forces where the neighbors of each atom change rapidly. They can be implemented on any distributedmemory parallel machine which allows for messagepassing of data between independently executing processors. The algorithms are tested on a standard LennardJones benchmark problem for system sizes ranging from 500 to 100,000,000 atoms on several parallel supercomputers  the nCUBE 2, Intel iPSC/860 and Paragon, and Cray T3D. Comparing the results to the fastest reported vectorized Cray YMP and C90 algorithm shows that the current generation of parallel machines is competitive with conventi...

This paper introduces GRASP (Generic seaRch Algorithm for the Satisjiability Problem), an integrated algorithmic framework for SAT that un.$es several previously proposed searchpruning techniques and facilitates ident$cation of additional ones. GRASP is premised on the inevitability of confzicts during search and its most distinguishing feature is the augmentation of basic backtracking search with a powerfil confzict analysis procedure. Analyzing confzicts to determine their cawes enables GRASP to backtrack nonchronologically to earlier levels in the search tree, potentially pruning large portions of the search space. In addition, by “recording ” the causes of conflicts, GRASP can recognize andpreempt the occurrence of similar conficts later on in the search. Finally, straightjwward bookkeeping of the causality chains leading up to conflicts allows GRASP to identifi assignments that are necessary for a solution to be found. fiperimental results obtained from a large number of benchmarks, including many from the $eld of test pattern generation, indicate that application of the proposed confzict analysis techniques to SATalgorithm can be extremely effectivefor a large number of representative classes of SAT instances. 1
Subcubic algorithms for recursive state machines
