Minimax Programs
 University of California Press
, 1997
"... We introduce an optimization problem called a minimax program that is similar to a linear program, except that the addition operator is replaced in the constraint equations by the maximum operator. We clarify the relation of this problem to some betterknown problems. We identify an interesting spec ..."

special case and present an efficient algorithm for its solution. 1 Introduction Over the last fifty years, thousands of problems of practical interest have been formulated as a linear program. Not only has the linear programming model proven to be widely applicable, but ongoing research has discovered
Intelligent Tutoring Goes to School in the Big City
 International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education
, 1997
"... Abstract. This paper reports on a largescale experiment introducing and evaluating intelligent tutoring in an urban High School setting. Critical to the success of this project has been a clientcentered design approach that has matched our client's expertise in curricular objectives and class ..."

an intelligent tutor, called PAT, that supports this curriculum and has been made a regular part of 9th grade Algebra in 3 Pittsburgh schools. In the 199394 school year, we evaluated the effect of the PUMP curriculum and PAT tutor use. On average the 470 students in experimental classes outperformed students
Sampling—50 years after Shannon
 Proceedings of the IEEE
, 2000
"... This paper presents an account of the current state of sampling, 50 years after Shannon’s formulation of the sampling theorem. The emphasis is on regular sampling, where the grid is uniform. This topic has benefited from a strong research revival during the past few years, thanks in part to the math ..."

Bisimulation can't be traced
, 1995
"... In the concurrent language CCS, hvo programs are considered the same if they are bzsimilar. Several years and many researchers have demonstrated that the theory of bisimulation is mathematically appealing and useful in practice. However, bisimulation makes too many distinctions between programs. W ..."

Optimization by Direct Search: New Perspectives on Some Classical and Modern Methods
 SIAM REVIEW VOL. 45, NO. 3, PP. 385–482
, 2003
"... Direct search methods are best known as unconstrained optimization techniques that do not explicitly use derivatives. Direct search methods were formally proposed and widely applied in the 1960s but fell out of favor with the mathematical optimization community by the early 1970s because they lacked ..."

they lacked coherent mathematical analysis. Nonetheless, users remained loyal to these methods, most of which were easy to program, some of which were reliable. In the past fifteen years, these methods have seen a revival due, in part, to the appearance of mathematical analysis, as well as to interest
Answers and questions about class size: A statewide experiment
 American Educational Research Journal
, 1990
"... A largescale experiment is described in which kindergarten students and teachers were randomly assigned to small and large classes within each participating school. Students remained in these classes for 2 years. At the end of each grade they were measured in reading and mathematics by standardized ..."

Amoeba: a distributed operating system for the 1990s
 IEEE Computer
, 1990
"... Amoeba is the distributed system developed at the Free University (VU) and Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI), both in Amsterdam. Throughout the project’s tenyear history, a major concern of the designers has been to combine the research themes of distributed systems, such as high av ..."

Entanglement of Formation of an Arbitrary State of Two Qubits
, 1998
"... The entanglement of a pure state of a pair of quantum systems is defined as the entropy of either member of the pair. The entanglement of formation of a mixed state ρ is defined as the minimum average entanglement of a set of pure states constituting a decomposition of ρ. An earlier paper [Phys. Rev ..."

. Rev. Lett. 78, 5022 (1997)] conjectured an explicit formula for the entanglement of formation of a pair of binary quantum objects (qubits) as a function of their density matrix, and proved the formula to be true for a special class of mixed states. The present paper extends the proof to arbitrary

Abstract: The purpose of this research was to determine if integrating technology into mathematics affects math achievement and student attitudes towards math in an Extended Learning Time (ELT) mathematics class. One team of eighthgrade students received only traditional math instruction and anothe ..."

Potential Function Methods for Approximately Solving Linear Programming Problems: Theory and Practice
, 2001
"... After several decades of sustained research and testing, linear programming has evolved into a remarkably reliable, accurate and useful tool for handling industrial optimization problems. Yet, large problems arising from several concrete applications routinely defeat the very best linear programming ..."

years, a new body ofresearch has emerged, which seeks to develop provably good approximation algorithms for classes of linear programming problems. This work both has roots in fundamental areas of mathematical programming and is also framed in the context ofthe modern theory ofalgorithms. The result
