Convergence Properties of the Nelder-Mead Simplex Method in Low Dimensions
• Mathematics, Computer Science
• SIAM J. Optim.
• 1 May 1998
The Nelder--Mead simplex algorithm, first published in 1965, is an enormously popular direct search method for multidimensional unconstrained minimization . Expand

OPTIMAL PATHS FOR A CAR THAT GOES BOTH FORWARDS AND BACKWARDS
• Mathematics
• 1 October 1990
The path taken by a car with a given minimum turning radius has a lower bound on its radius of curvature at each point, but the path has cusps if the car shifts into or out of reverse gear. What isExpand

Estimating Solutions of First Kind Integral Equations with Nonnegative Constraints and Optimal Smoothing
• Mathematics
• 1 June 1981
A method is presented for estimating solutions of Fredholm integral equations of the first kind, given noisy data. Regularization is effected by a smoothing term which is the $L^2$-norm of theExpand

Shift-Register Synthesis (Modulo m)
• Computer Science
• SIAM J. Comput.
• 1985
The Berlekamp-Massey algorithm takes a sequence of elements from a field and finds the shortest linear recurrence (or linear feedback shift register) that can generate the sequence. Expand

Inequalities and Positive-Definite Functions Arising from a Problem in Multidimensional Scaling
• Mathematics
• 1 March 1994
We solve the following variational problem: Find the maximum of E ∥ X−Y ∥ subject to E ∥ X ∥2 ≤ 1, where X and Y are i.i.d. random n-vectors, and ∥⋅∥ is the usual Euclidean norm on Rn. This problemExpand

Orthonormal bases of exponentials for the n-cube
• Mathematics

Identification of stops and vowels for the burst portion of (p,t,k) isolated from conversational speech.
• Physics, Medicine
• The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
• 1972
The stops /p t k/ were tested for identification in the context of /i a u/. The burst portions of initial and final stops were isolated from conversational speech through electronic gating circuitry.Expand

Sets Uniquely Determined by Projections on Axes I
• Mathematics
• 2 January 1990
This paper studies sets S in $\mathbb{R}''$ which are uniquely reconstructible from their hyperplane integral projections \$P_i ( {x_i ;S} ) = \iint { \cdots \int {\chi _S } }( {x_1 , \cdots ,x_i ,Expand
