The Nature of Statistical Learning Theory
, 1999
"... Statistical learning theory was introduced in the late 1960’s. Until the 1990’s it was a purely theoretical analysis of the problem of function estimation from a given collection of data. In the middle of the 1990’s new types of learning algorithms (called support vector machines) based on the deve ..."

The Byzantine Generals Problem
 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems
, 1982
"... Reliable computer systems must handle malfunctioning components that give conflicting information to different parts of the system. This situation can be expressed abstractly in terms of a group of generals of the Byzantine army camped with their troops around an enemy city. Communicating only by me ..."

if and only if more than twothirds of the generals are loyal; so a single traitor can confound two loyal generals. With unforgeable written messages, the problem is solvable for any number of generals and possible traitors. Applications of the solutions to reliable computer systems are then discussed.
Mining Generalized Association Rules
, 1995
"... We introduce the problem of mining generalized association rules. Given a large database of transactions, where each transaction consists of a set of items, and a taxonomy (isa hierarchy) on the items, we find associations between items at any level of the taxonomy. For example, given a taxonomy th ..."

A solution to Plato’s problem: The latent semantic analysis theory of acquisition, induction, and representation of knowledge
 PSYCHOLOGICAL REVIEW
, 1997
"... How do people know as much as they do with as little information as they get? The problem takes many forms; learning vocabulary from text is an especially dramatic and convenient case for research. A new general theory of acquired similarity and knowledge representation, latent semantic analysis (LS ..."

The dangers of replication and a solution
 IN PROCEEDINGS OF THE 1996 ACM SIGMOD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MANAGEMENT OF DATA
, 1996
"... Update anywhereanytimeanyway transactional replication has unstable behavior as the workload scales up: a tenfold increase in nodes and traflc gives a thousand fold increase in deadlocks or reconciliations. Master copy replication (primary copyj schemes reduce this problem. A simple analytic mode ..."

A New Method for Solving Hard Satisfiability Problems
 AAAI
, 1992
"... We introduce a greedy local search procedure called GSAT for solving propositional satisfiability problems. Our experiments show that this procedure can be used to solve hard, randomly generated problems that are an order of magnitude larger than those that can be handled by more traditional approac ..."

Theoretical improvements in algorithmic efficiency for network flow problems

, 1972
"... This paper presents new algorithms for the maximum flow problem, the Hitchcock transportation problem, and the general minimumcost flow problem. Upper bounds on ... the numbers of steps in these algorithms are derived, and are shown to compale favorably with upper bounds on the numbers of steps req ..."

Impossibility of distributed consensus with one faulty process
, 1983
"... The consensus problem involves an asynchronous system of proceses, some of which may be unreliable. The problem is for the rcliablc processes to agree on a bbary value. h this paper, it is shown that every protocol for this problem has the possibility of nontermination, even with only otre faulty p ..."

Genetic Algorithms for Multiobjective Optimization: Formulation, Discussion and Generalization

"... The paper describes a rankbased fitness assignment method for Multiple Objective Genetic Algorithms (MOGAs). Conventional niche formation methods are extended to this class of multimodal problems and theory for setting the niche size is presented. The fitness assignment method is then modified to a ..."

Primitives for the manipulation of general subdivisions and the computations of Voronoi diagrams
 ACM Tmns. Graph
, 1985
"... The following problem is discussed: Given n points in the plane (the sites) and an arbitrary query point 4, find the site that is closest to q. This problem can be solved by constructing the Voronoi diagram of the given sites and then locating the query point in one of its regions. Two algorithms ar ..."

The topology is represented by a new data structure for generalized diagrams, that is, embeddings
