A Total Algorithm for Polynomial Roots Based Upon Bairstow's Method
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1974), CS74002-R
This program uses Bairstow's method to find the real and complex roots of a polynomial with real coefficients. There are several reasons for developing a routine based upon Bairstow's method. It is sometimes the case ...
An Annotated Bibliography on Optimization of Programs During Compilation
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1978), CS78002-R
This annotated bibliography covers a collection of articles assembled by the authors in a graduate level course on advanced compilation techniques.
Deceleration of a Rotating Disk in a Viscous Fluid
(AIP Publishing, 1979)
A disk rotating in a viscous fluid decelerates with an angular velocity inversely proportional to time. It is found that the unsteady Navier–Stokes equations admit similarity solutions which depend on a nondimensional ...
An Artificial Intelligence Approach to the Symbolic Factorization of Multivariable Polynomials
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1974), CS74019-R
A new heuristic factorization scheme that uses learning to improve the efficiency of determining the symbolic factorization of multivariable polynomials with integer coefficients and an arbitrary number of variables and ...
A Process for Producing Tactually Perceptible Images of Line Drawings for Use by the Blind
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1974), CS74031-R
A working prototype computer controlled process is described for automatically converting line drawings into raised line images perceptible to the touch. The process uses an automatic digitizer for input and a milling ...
Nonparallel Stability of Boundary-Layer Flows
(AIP Publishing, 1975)
The spatial stability of two‐dimensional incompressible boundary‐layer flows is analyzed using the method of multiple scales. The analysis takes into account the streamwise variations of the mean flow, the disturbance ...
Secondary Instability in Boundary-Layer Flows
(AIP Publishing, 1979)
The stability of a secondary Tollmien–Schlichting wave, whose wavenumber and frequency are nearly one half those of a fundamental Tollmien–Schlichting instability wave, is analyzed using the method of multiple scales. Under ...
