For a large class of stationary probability measures on A/sup N/, where A is a finite alphabet, we compute the specific Renyi entropy of order /spl alpha/ and the specific guesswork moments of order /spl beta/ > -1. We show that the specific guesswork moment of order /spl beta/ equals the specific Renyi entropy of order /spl alpha/ = 1 / (1 + /spl beta/)… (More)

1 The Equivalence of Ensembles In statistical mechanics the problem of the equivalence of ensembles goes back to Boltz-mann and Gibbs. Here it is the problem of proving that, in the thermodynamic limit, the microcanonical measures and the grand canonical measures are equivalent; making precise the meaning of \equivalent" is part of the problem. It is… (More)

We consider a stationary source emitting letters from a nite alphabet A. The source is described by a stationary probability measure on the space := A IN of sequences of letters. Denote by n the set of words of length n and by n the probability measure induced on n by. We consider sequences f? n n : n 2 INg having special properties. Call f? n n : n 2 INg a… (More)

The association of thunderstorm occurrence in Alaska with low-level comvergence is studied. The results indicate that the main contributing factor to thunderstorm development is the low-level convergence produced by the trough or Low pressure center that persists over Alaska during much of the summer.

Many universities are rushing to be active participants or leaders in on-line instruction. The effectiveness of materials and the time and effort for the initial development of web-based course materials are significant factors affecting the success of these efforts. Recently, a variety of software tools have emerged to meet the demand for the development… (More)

An Activity-Based Costing and Theory of Constraints Model for Product-Mix Decisions by AYSE PINAR GURSES (ABSTRACT) The objective of this thesis is to demonstrate the use of the Activity-Based Costing (ABC) approach together with the Theory of Constraints (TOC) philosophy in determining the optimal product-mix and restrictive bottlenecks of a company. The… (More)

This project defines a decision support system developed to permit the user to perform a cost-benefit analysis for any military installation cited for closure, relocation, or privatization. The procedure recognizes both the economic costs and strategic benefits of a feasible solution. Though the cost estimates for a particular study may vary in magnitude,… (More)
