We also sought to exclude contamination of waveforms recorded over the occipital cortex from electrical(More)
Dynamic programming is employed in conjunction with a Markov chain probability-based prediction model t o obtain minimum cost maintenance strategies over a given life-cycle analysis period. Dynamic programming is an "approach" to optimization, based on the principle of taking a single, complex problem and breaking it into a number of simpler and more easily(More)
