ABSTRACT The ability of neural networks to closely approximate unknown functions to any degree of desired accuracy has generated considerable demand for Neural Network research in Business. The attractiveness of neural… (More)
The MIT Faculty has made this article openly available. Please share how this access benefits you. Your story matters. From detailed numerical calculations, we demonstrate that in simple photonic crystal structures, a discrete number of Bloch surface-localized eigenstates can exist inside the continuum of free-space modes. Coupling to the free space causes… (More)
This paper deals with issuces that have emerged as a result of a successful implementation of a source level symbolic debugger for HP-1000 computer systems. By analyzing a user's thought processes during a debugging session we created a powerful and easy to use tool for program analysis.
The use of ultra-broadband supercontinuum generated by an all-fiber system to characterize high-index contrast photonic circuits over the wavelength range 1.2 – 2.0 µm is demonstrated. Efficient, broadband waveguide coupling techniques and sensitive normalized detection enable rapid and high-resolution measurements of nano-scale one-dimensional photonic… (More)
In this paper, we propose a churn management model based on a partial least square (PLS) optimization method that explicitly considers the management costs of controllable marketing variables for a successful churn management program. A PLS prediction model is first calibrated to estimate the churn probabilities of customers. Then this PLS prediction model… (More)
