A prototyping environment for differential equations
Toufic I. Boubez, Andy M. Froncioni, Richard L. Peskin
Pages: 1-10
DOI: 10.1145/128745.128746
A system is presented to allow end users to solve nonlinear differential equations without need to write computer programs. The system treats nth order space (one dimensional), first order time systems with initial and/or two...

Automated selection of mathematical software
Michael Lucks, Ian Gladwell
Pages: 11-34
DOI: 10.1145/128745.128747
Current approaches to recommending mathematical software are qualitative and categorical. These approaches are unsatisfactory when the problem to be solved has features that can “trade-off” in the recommendation process. A...

A flexible thinning algorithm allowing parallel, sequential, and distributed application
Jan Olszewski
Pages: 35-45
DOI: 10.1145/128745.128748
A parallel thinning algorithm for digital patterns is presented. This algorithm can also be used for sequential thinning without the simulation of parallel computation. The mathematical background of the algorithm bases on the notion of the...
