—In this paper, we present a parallel connected component labeling method and its VLSI architecture design. The proposed method can assign labels to three pixels simultaneously for the raster scan input and then generate three label equivalences rapidly. We also present 3 arrays to process all label mergence. Based on the proposed method, we develop the(More)
The Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method is one of the recently developed element-free methods. The method is convenient and can produce accurate results with continuous secondary variables, but is more computationally expensive than the finite element method. To overcome this disadvantage, a simple Heaviside test function is chosen. The(More)
A coupled finite element (FE) method and meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method for analyzing two-dimensional potential problems is presented in this paper. The analysis domain is subdivided into two regions, a finite element (FE) region and a meshless (MM) region. A single weighted residual form is written for the entire domain. Independent trial and(More)
