Summary form only given. Parallel genetic algorithm for search and constrained multiobjective optimization introduces the design and complexity analysis of a parallel genetic algorithm to generate a "best" path for a robot arm to follow, given a starting position and a goal in three dimensional space. Path generation takes into account any obstacles near(More)
An on-shot focal-spot diagnostic for characterizing high-energy, petawatt-class laser systems is presented. Accurate measurements at full energy are demonstrated using high-resolution wavefront sensing in combination with techniques to calibrate on-shot measurements with low-power sample beams. Results are shown for full-energy activation shots of the OMEGA(More)
Target-plane intensities on the short-pulse beamlines of OMEGA EP, a petawatt-class laser, are characterized on-shot using the focal-spot diagnostic (FSD), an indirect wavefront-based measurement. Phase-retrieval methods are employed using on-shot and offline camera-based far-field measurements to improve the wavefront measurements and yield more-accurate,(More)
Summary form only given. This paper applies nature inspired concepts and techniques from computer science, i.e. evolutionary computing, to gain a better understanding of the evolutionary history of birdsong. Notes are created and evolved according to fitness criteria to produce accurate and recognizable birdsong notes. The successful parallel simulation(More)
