An Intertwined Method for Making Low-Rank, Sum-Of-Product Basis Functions that makes it Possible to Compute Vibrational Spectra of Molecules with more than 10 Atoms
We propose a method for solving the vibrational Schrödinger equation with which one can compute spectra for molecules with more than ten atoms. It uses sum-of-product (SOP) basis functions stored in a canonical polyadic ...
Systematically Expanding Nondirect Product Bases Within the Pruned Multi-Configuration ime-dependent Hartree (MCTDH) Method: A Comparison With Multi-Layer MCTDH
We propose a pruned multi-configuration time-dependent Hartree (MCTDH) method with systematically expanding nondirect product bases and use it to solve the time-independent Schrödinger equation. No pre-determined pruning ...
Reducing the Cost of Using Collocation to Compute Vibrational Energy Levels: Results for CH2NH
In this paper, we improve the collocation method for computing vibrational spectra that was presented in the work of Avila and Carrington, Jr. [J. Chem. Phys. 143, 214108 (2015)]. Known quadrature and collocation methods ...
On the Equivalence Between Maximum Likelihood and Minimum Distance Decoding for Binary Contagion and Queue-Based Channels with Memory
We study the optimal maximum likelihood (ML) block decoding of general binary codes sent over two classes of binary additive noise channels with memory. Specifically, we consider the infinite and finite memory Polya contagion ...
The Kingston Police Data Collection Project: A Preliminary Report to the Kingston Police Services Board
The Kingston Police Data Collection Project was designed to gather information on the following research questions: are the police more likely to stop racial minority citizens than white citizens?; are racial minority ...
Towards Controlling Bucket Fill Factor in Robotic Excavation by Learning Admittance Control Setpoints
This paper investigates the extension of an admittance control scheme to- ward learning and adaptation of its setpoints to achieve controllable bucket fill factor for robotic excavation of fragmented rock. A previously ...
A Gap Method for Increasing the Sensitivity of Cantilever Biosensors
Dynamic-mode cantilever biosensors are an attractive technology for biological sensing. However, researchers are constantly seeking ways to increase their sensitivity, especially in liquids, in order to rapidly detect ...
Industrial-Scale Autonomous Wheeled-Vehicle Path Following by Combining Iterative Learning Control with Feedback Linearization
Abstract— This paper presents a path following method for autonomous wheeled vehicles that combines iterative learning control (ILC) with nonlinear feedback linearization (FBL) to provide anticipatory control action ...
Water-triggered spontaneous surface patterning in thin films of mexylaminotriazine molecular glasses
Surface patterning that occurs spontaneously during the formation of a thin film is a powerful tool for controlling film morphology at the nanoscale level because it avoids the need for further processing. However, one ...
