This allows users to automatically optimize extrusion dies by parameterizing the critical die dimensions in either of the two geometric modeling packages.
The parameterized complexity of the problem has been studied in several papers, for instance [BCF11, CFvL11], with a primary focus on parameterizing by the number of vertex saved (or burned) in the decision version of the problem.
Part III addresses conservation, parameterizing the concept of ecosystem services, discussing threats to marine communities including overfishing, habitat degradation, and climate change, and presenting conservation and restoration strategies.
* A Windows-based software tool for parameterizing and analyzing the drives.
The superiority of the allometric Model (4) with length and width exponents parameterizing somewhat close to I and 2, respectively, and the reasonable fit of Hoyt's Model (1) are not surprising given that egg mass is related to egg volume and the volume of a prolate spheroid (an ellipse revolved about the long axis) is V = ([pi]/6)L[W.sup.2].
Comprehensive data on lifespan and breeding are critical to setting conservation priorities, parameterizing population viability models, and managing captive and wild populations.
Other topics explored include ambient air temperature interpolation in inhomogeneous regions, parameterizing inclined state boundary layers, new trends in phonological modeling, and turbulent scalar transfer modeling in reacting flows.
Three major research themes encompassing the priorities of issues of national importance on the HAB phenomenon were identified: 1) organisms, with a goal towards determining the physiological, biochemical, and behavioral features that influence bloom dynamics; 2) environmental regulation, with a goal toward determining and parameterizing the factors that govern the initiation, growth, and maintenance of these blooms; and 3) food web and community interactions, with a goal toward determining the extent to which food webs and trophic structure affect and are affected by the dynamics of HABs.
Parameterizing these components at a geometric or material property level enables the tightly integrated capabilities of parametric sweeps, optimization and statistical design.
Among particular topics are an example-driven symbol recognition approach based on key features in engineering drawings, spherical projective displacement mesh, a variational harmonic method for parameterizing the computational domain in two-dimensional isogeometric analysis, an efficient adaptive vortex particle method for real-time smoke simulation, the behavior-based simulation of real-time crown evacuation, and implicit surface reconstruction based on adaptive clustering.
