The scope of this research is to develop new methods and tools for high performance and computationally efficient control of uncertain complex systems. We take a probabilistic approach, considering that the uncertainty affecting the system has a probabilistic nature. In contrast to common stochastic control methods, a key feature of the developed techniques is that they . Optimizing Quality for Probabilistic Skyline Computation and Probabilistic Similarity Search Abstract: Probabilistic queries have been extensively explored to provide answers with confidence, in order to support the real-life applications struggling with uncertain data, such as sensor networks and data by: 1.

[C J Patenaude; U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Division of Reactor System Safety.; Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.]. Description. A probabilistic Turing machine is a type of nondeterministic Turing machine in which each nondeterministic step is a "coin-flip"—that is, there are two possible next moves and the computation probabilistically selects which move to take.

Formal definition. A probabilistic Turing machine can be formally defined as the 7-tuple = (,,), where. A general framework for constructing and using probabilistic models of complex systems that would enable a computer to use available information for making decisions.

Most tasks require a person or an automated system to reason―to reach conclusions based on available by: described in the tutorial chapter of this manual. The experiments section at the end of this manual reports on some perfor-mance experiments with MayBMS.

Unfortunately, at the time of writing this, no benchmark for probabilistic database systems exists, so these experiments are necessarily somewhat ad-hoc. AcknowledgmentsCited by: 1.

This popular book makes a noble attempt at unifying the many different types of probabilistic models used in artificial intelligence. It seems like a good reference manual for people who are already familiar with the fundamental concepts of commonly used probabilistic graphical models/5.

Availability evaluation, Bayesian networks, Complex systems, Availability reduction factor. INTRODUCTION. In the most current papers, the evaluation of dependability methods (evaluation of reliability and availability) are generally reserved for the simple systems (series and parallel systems) or for the components.

Index terms—probabilistic model, analytical model, RFID. INTRODUCTION In this paper a comparison between a fast probabilistic model and an analytical Full-Wave model is presented.

Both models aim to evaluate the identiﬁcation performance of passive RFID systems operating at the UHF frequency band (MHzMHz).

Abstract. In this paper we show how quantitative program logic [] provides a formal framework in which to promote standard techniques of program analysis to a context where probability and nondeterminism interact, a situation common to probabilistic distributed show that overall performance can be formulated directly in the logic and that it can be derived from local Cited by: 3.

The variety and constraint can be generalized to a probabilistic framework, where they are replaced by entropy and information, respectively. Let us suppose that we do not know the precise state, s, of a system, but only the probability distribution, P(s), of the system to be in state generalization of the variety of the system can then be expressed as entropy H.Chapter 1 of my book on R software development, The Art of R Programming, NSP, ; Part of a VERY rough and partial draft of that book.
