Fault diagnosis for airplane engines using Bayesian networks and distributed particle swarm optimization
This paper presents a fault diagnosis system for airplane engines using Bayesian networks (BN) and distributed particle swarm optimization (PSO). The PSO is inherently parallel, works for large domains and does not trap ...
Optical, electrical, and structural properties of sputtered aluminum alloy thin films with copper, titanium and chromium additions
(Elsevier - Thin Solid Films, 2007-02)
Aluminum alloys containing copper, chromium, and titanium were sputter deposited with the goal of maintaining the high bulk reflectance of aluminum while providing surface topography more suited for optical applications. ...
Coherent optical processor for inverse filter generation
(Wiley Periodicals - Microwave and Optical Technology Letters, 2007-01-25)
A new algorithm and system architecture for inverse filter generation using a coherent iterative optical processor is presented. This processor avoids the singularity problem usually faced in inverse filter generation. The ...

Taking advantage of digital opportunities: a typology of digital entrepreneurship
(Interscience Pub. The definitive version is available at http://www.inderscience.com/browse/index.php?journalCODE=ijnvo, 2007)
As more companies start doing digital business, the question of how starting a digital venture differs from starting a traditional venture grows more important. We present a framework of digital entrepreneurship that ...
A Stochastic model of waste management with on and off site storage
When the regulatory threshold which specifies the maximum amount of waste that can be stored on site is exceeded, a waste generating firm must move waste to an off site location. Given that off site storage is costlier ...
Modified stage-gate(r) regimes in new product development
(Blackwell Publishing, Ltd. The definitive version is available at http://www.blackwell-synergy.com, 2007-01)
The purpose of this research was to explore the nature of the Stage-Gate (r) process in the context of innovative projects that not only vary in new product technology (i.e. radical versus incremental technology) but that ...
Time resolved measurements of the flow generated by suction feeding fish
