This paper deals with obtaining a reduced model of a stable mechanical system with proportional damping. Such systems can be conveniently represented in modal coordinates. Two popular schemes, namely the modal cost analysis and the balancing method, offer simple means of identifying dominant modes for retention in the reduced model. The dominance is(More)
To obtain a reduced model of a mechanical system, we can identify the dominant modes and retain those as the reduced model. Two widely used schemes for selection of dominant modes we Modal Cost Analysis (MCA) and balancing, but neither of the methods guarantees that the model error is small, where model error measures the difference between the output of(More)
Despite the 2002 Institute of Medicine report that described the moral and financial impact of health care disparities and the need to address them, it is evident that health care disparities persist. Recommendations for addressing disparities include collecting and reporting data on patient race and ethnicity, supporting language interpretation services,(More)
