This thesis designs, develops and tests a computer-assisted system to construct final examination schedules at the Naval Postgraduate School. The system is based on a greedy heuristic that produces high quality solutions for 200 examinations in a few minutes on a personal computer. Comparisons between computer constructed schedules and the manual schedule for the 1994 winter quarter show the manual schedule's superiority. Despite this observation, the computer system's ability to rapidly...

System designers are often faced with the task of assigning symbolic representations to user actions, e.g., icons to choices in graphical interfaces. When a confusion matrix—on discriminability of the symbols—is available, it is used to guide the selection of the set of symbols to be implemented. While trial and error methods or clustering approaches have been used to analyze this problem, it was only recently that a true optimization approach was offered. Theise (1989) formulated the...

Piracy threatens commercial shipping passing through major choke points and sea lines of communication in regions such as the Gulf of Aden (GOA) and Southeast Asia. Piracy has become a larger security issue in the international community as the number of attacks has increased and ransoms have escalated. Countries such as China have become more involved in counter-piracy operations; however, China has neither joined the Combined Maritime Forces task force in the GOA to combat piracy nor been...

The explosive growth of user-generated video presents opportunities and challenges. The videos may possess valuable information that was once unavailable. On the other hand, the information may be buried or difficult to access with traditional methods. Automatic keyframe video summarization technologies exist that attempt to address this problem. A keyframe summary can often be viewed quicker than the underlying video. However, a theoretical framework for objectively assessing keyframe summary...

An expanding interest at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, in research work on aircraft side-arm control sticks has necessitated the determination of the previous and ongoing projects involved with the development of side-arm control sticks. This paper presents a survey of the English language literature dealing with aircraft control sticks over the period of 1936 to 1971. The result of the survey is an abstracted bibliography of significant literature related to the design...

The goals of this thesis are to demonstrate the operation of a near-field scanning microscope (NSOM) inside a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to collect spatially resolved luminescence and to image transport on nano-scale structures, particularly nanowires. The SEM is used to generate localized charge and the NSOM is used to observe the motion of the excess charge due to diffusion and/or drift via its recombination emission. This will allow direct determination of transport parameters, such...

The Government of Sri Lanka declared victory over the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in 2009, putting an end to a conflict of thirty years. The sudden demise of the LTTE, one of the most ruthless yet successful insurgent organizations, is worth understanding.

Barriers to women’s service in the U.S. military have been greatly reduced over the past two decades. Policies preventing women from serving on ships, submarines, and in attack aircraft were removed in 1994. More recently, in January 2013, the Department of Defense overturned the 1994 Exclusion Policy on women serving in direct ground combat units. Implementing this change presents a significant challenge. The decision to do so has reignited a long-standing debate over women’s rights and...

This report develops a modern naval combat model. It deals with naval surface missile combat and models the attrition as a force-on-force process described in discrete time steps, or slaves. The degradation of each force is expressed in terms of remaining staying power and combat power in both opponents. It is based on Lt. Beall's model, but since it deals with missile warfare it incorporates several human factors that affect the outcome of a naval battle: specifically scouting effectiveness,...

The cross sections for the elastic scattering of electrons from atomic oxygen are calculated in the energy range between 0 and 13.6 electron volts. Polarization of the atom is included by using a term in the potential function which has the correct asymptotic behavior and which vanishes at the origin. Previous theoretical and experimental results are discussed.

Also, we extend the fixed data algorithms to the data-adaptive case, and contrast them with FIR and IIR...
