A multilevel Newton algorithm with macromodeling and latency for the analysis of large-scale nonlinear circuits in the time domain
Analysis techniques which take advantage of the structural properties of large-scale electrical networks are discussed. Exact macromodels of a subnetwork are defined and a sufficient condition on theExpand

For many years, Islamic architecture, as a field of historical enquiry, was hampered by Its Orientalist roots. Architectural forms were classified by types and styles, and perceived as sedate, staticExpand
The Demise and Afterlife of Artifacts
A latent macromodular approach to large-scale sparse networks
Two major topics are discussed: macromodularity and latency. The macromodular approach uses the tearing procedure, modified nodal analysis, symbolic LU factorization techniques, and separate updatingExpand
