This book presents a unified treatment of many different kinds of planning algorithms. The subject lies at the crossroads between robotics, control theory, artificial intelligence, algorithms, and computer graphics. The particular subjects covered include motion planning, discrete planning, planning under uncertainty, sensorbased planning, visibility, decisiontheoretic planning, game theory, information spaces, reinforcement learning, nonlinear systems, trajectory planning, nonholonomic planning, and kinodynamic planning.

pRB, the product of the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor gene, operates in the midst of the cell cycle clock apparatus. Its main role is to act as a signal transducer connecting the cell cycle clock with the transcriptional machinery. In this role, pRB allows the clock to control the expression of banks of genes that mediate advance of the cell through a critical phase of its growth cycle. Loss of pRB function deprives the clock and thus the cell of an important mechanism for braking cell proliferation through modulation of gene expression. pRB and the G1 Restriction Point pRB exerts most and perhaps all of its effects in a defined window of time in the first two thirds of the G1 phase of the cell cycle. As demonstrated by Pardee almost two decades ago, this is the time window during which the mam

In this paper, we further analyze, test, modify and improve the high order WENO (weighted essentially nonoscillatory) finite difference schemes of Liu, Osher and Chan [9]. It was shown by Liu et al. that WENO schemes constructed from the r th order (in L¹ norm) ENO schemes are (r +1) th order accurate. We propose a new way of measuring the smoothness of a numerical solution, emulating the idea of minimizing the total variation of the approximation, which results in a 5th order WENO scheme for the case r = 3, instead of the 4th order with the original smoothness measurement by Liu et al. This 5 th order WENO scheme is as fast as the 4 th order WENO scheme of Liu et al. and, both schemes are about twice as fast as the 4th order ENO schemes on vector supercomputers and as fast on serial and parallel computers. For Euler systems of gas dynamics, we suggest to compute the weights from pressure and entropy instead of the characteristic values to simplify the costly characteristic procedure. The resulting WENO schemes are about twice as fast as the WENO schemes using the characteristic decompositions to compute weights, and work well for problems which donot contain strong shocks or strong reflected waves. We also prove that, for conservation laws with smooth solutions, all WENO schemes are convergent. Many numerical tests, including the 1D steady state nozzle flow problem and 2D shock entropy waveinteraction problem, are presented to demonstrate the remarkable capability of the WENO schemes, especially the WENO scheme using the new smoothness measurement, in resolving complicated shock and flow structures. We have also applied Yang's artificial compression method to the WENO schemes to sharpen contact discontinuities.

Testing plays an important role in the maintenance of Component Based Software Development. Test adequacy for component testing is one of the hardest issues for component testing. To tackle this problem, it is a natural idea to apply mutation testing, which is a faultbased testing method used for measuring test adequacy, for component contracts, whose aim is to improve the testability of the component. Though powerful, mutation testing is usually very computationexpensive, as many mutants need to be produced and executed in mutation testing. In this paper, we propose a contractbased mutation technique for testing components. Based on the discordance between contracts and specification, our approach employs a set of high level contract mutation operators. The experimental results show that these operators can greatly reduce the number of mutants compared with traditional mutation operators. At the same time, the contractbased mutation using our contract mutation operators can provide almost the same ability as that of using traditional mutation operators. Moreover, effective test suite can be produced to reduce the maintenance effort. 1.

In this paper, we present a weighted ENO (essentially nonoscillatory) scheme to approximate the viscosity solution of the HamiltonJacobi equation: OE t +H(x 1 ; \Delta \Delta \Delta ; x d ; t; OE; OE x1 ; \Delta \Delta \Delta ; OE xd ) = 0: This weighted ENO scheme is constructed upon and has the same stencil nodes as the 3 rd order ENO scheme but can be as high as 5 th order accurate in the smooth part of the solution. In addition to the accuracy improvement, numerical comparisons between the two schemes also demonstrate that, the weighted ENO scheme is more robust than the ENO scheme. Key words.
