A number of recent publications have made use of the incremental output of stochastic parsers to derive measures of high utility for psycholinguistic modeling, following the work of Hale (2001; 2003; 2006). In this paper, we present novel methods for calculating separate lexical and syntactic surprisal measures from a single incremental parser using a(More)
Hierarchical HMM (HHMM) parsers make promising cognitive models: while they use a bounded model of working memory and pursue incremental hypotheses in parallel, they still achieve parsing accuracies competitive with chart-based techniques. This paper aims to validate that a right-corner HHMM parser is also able to produce complexity metrics, which quantify(More)
The purpose of this study is to develop automatic algorithms for the segmentation phase of radiotherapy treatment planning. We develop new image processing techniques that are based on solving a partial diferential equation for the evolution of the curve that identifies the segmented organ. The velocity function is based on the piecewise Mumford-Shah(More)
Children with autism with sensorimotor impairments found difficult to control their movements when responding to sensory stimuli. Neurologic music therapy, combining music and movement helps individuals with disabilities to better control their movements when following audible cues. In this paper, we present the iterative design process that led to the(More)
A system in a spatially (quasi-)degenerate ground state responds in a qualitatively different way to a change in the external potential. Consequently, the usual method for computing the Fukui function, namely, taking the difference between the electron densities of the N- and N ± 1 electron systems, cannot be applied directly. It is shown how the Fukui(More)
—Cloud Computing is an ever-growing paradigm shift in computing allowing users commodity access to compute and storage services. As such cloud computing is an emerging promising approach for High Performance Computing (HPC) application development. Automation of resource provision offered by Cloud computing facilitates the eScience programmer usage of(More)
