Collaborative task performance for learning using a virtual environment
(MIT Press, 1999-08-01)
This paper describes a study on the sense of presence and task performance in a virtual environment as affected by copresence (one subject working alone versus two subjects working as partners), level of control (control ...
A conceptual model of the sense of presence in virtual environments
(MIT Press, 1999-04-01)
This paper proposes a model of interaction in virtual environments which we term the immersion, presence, performance (IPP) model. This model is based on previous models of immersion and presence proposed by Barfield and ...
Use and Usability in a Digital Library Search System
(Virginia Tech Digital Library Research Laboratory, 1999)
Digital libraries must reach out to users from all walks of life, serving information needs at all levels. To do this, they must attain high standards of usability over an extremely broad audience. This paper details the ...

Information theory and the finite-time behavior of the simulated annealing algorithm: Experimental results
This article presents an empirical approach that demonstrates a theoretical connection between (information theoretic) entropy measures and the finite-time performance of the simulated annealing algorithm. The methodology ...
