This paper develops a method for finding a robust test plan, which consists of a mixture of full system and subsystem tests, to estimate the reliability of a system given that the model for theâ€¦ (More)

The Gibbs sampler of Geman and Geman (G&G) (1984) is a standard technique for image restoration. We implemented a similar estimation technique based on a new optimization method (simultaneousâ€¦ (More)

It is known that a stochastic approximation (SA) analogue of the deterministic Newton-Raphson algorithm provides an asymptotically optimal or near-optimal form of stochastic search. However, directlyâ€¦ (More)

This paper introduces a "seesaw" scheme for parameter estimation where the overall parameter vector is divided into two parts. The estimate of the overall vector is formed by oscillating between theâ€¦ (More)

Reliability testing of large-scale systems is often infeasible or very costly. Thus, when estimating system reliability, it is desirable to employ a method that uses subsystem tests, which are oftenâ€¦ (More)

This paper establishes a framework for formal comparisons of several leading optimization algorithms, establishing guidance to practitioners for when to use or not use a particular method. The focusâ€¦ (More)
