AB - Abstract Two closely related species of Drosophila, D. simulans and D. mauritiana, differ markedly in morphology of the posterior lobe of the male genital arch. Both size and shape aspects of lobe variation can be quantified by a morphometric descriptor based on elliptical Fourier and principal components analyses. The genetic architecture of this quantitative trait (PC1) was investigated by hybridizing inbred lines to produce two backcross populations of ~200 individuals each, which were analyzed jointly by a composite interval mapping procedure with the aid of 18 marker loci. The parental lines show a large difference in PC1 (30.4 environmental standard deviations), and the markers account for >80% of the phenotypic variation in backcross populations. Eight of 15 intervals analyzed show convincing evidence of quantitative trait loci (QTL), and the range of estimated QTL effects is 5.7–15.9% of the parental difference (1.7–4.8 environmental standard deviations). These estimates may represent the joint effects of multiple QTL within a single interval (which averaged 23 cM in length). Although there is some evidence of partial dominance of mauritiana alleles and for epistasis, the pattern of inheritance is largely additive.

AB - Abstract Design III is an experimental design originally proposed by R. E. Comstock and H. F. Robinson for estimating genetic variances and the average degree of dominance for quantitative trait loci (QTL) and has recently been extended for mapping QTL. In this paper, we first extend Comstock and Robinson's analysis of variance to include linkage, two-locus epistasis and the use of F 3 parents. Then we develop the theory and statistical analysis of orthogonal contrasts and contrast × environment interaction for a single marker locus to characterize the effects of QTL. The methods are applied to the maize data of C. W. Stuber. The analyses strongly suggest that there are multiple linked QTL in many chromosomes for several traits examined. QTL effects are largely environment-independent for grain yield, ear height, plant height and ear leaf area and largely environment dependent for days to tassel, grain moisture and ear number. There is significant QTL epistasis. The results are generally in favor of the hypothesis of dominance of favorable genes to explain the observed heterosis in grain yield and other traits, although epistasis could also play an important role and overdominance at individual QTL level can not be ruled out.

AU - Chen, S.

T2 - Nineteenth IEEE/CPMT International Electronics Manufacturing Technology Symposium
AB - We focus on the yield (Y) and growth rate (G) of silicon selective epitaxial growth (SEG) at 820 to 970/spl deg/C, and pressures between 40 and 150 Torr. Since the yield of silicon SEG is a potential bottleneck in the manufacture of three-dimensional integrated circuits, e.g., 3-D CMOS, basic knowledge of Y and its dependence on operating conditions, substrate surface parameters, and processing time is of key importance. The conditions investigated include deposition temperature, deposition pressure, SEG thickness, processing time, seed window area, distance between seed windows (local seed window density), and feed composition. The yield is found to improve with higher deposition temperatures, higher HCl feed flows, shorter processing times, higher Cl/H feed ratios, and lower Si/Cl feed ratios. The seed window area and distance between seed windows do not appear to affect the yield at the conditions studied. Growth rate uniformity is observed to improve with lower pressure and temperature, longer processing times, lower HCl feed concentrations, higher Si/Cl feed ratios, and lower Cl/H feed ratios. The implications of these observations for production planning and control of such facilities are discussed.

AU - Nemoto, K.

T2 - Nineteenth IEEE/CPMT International Electronics Manufacturing Technology Symposium
AB - In recent years, semiconductor manufacturing has become extremely complex due to device size reduction. Hence the manufacturing cycle time, also called turn around time (TAT), which is defined as the time required from wafer input through probing test, becomes longer year by year. This renders the delay between process defect occurrence and detection a significant problem. On the other hand, customer demands for faster delivery are increasing because their product life cycles are getting shorter. Therefore, TAT reduction is important for semiconductor manufacturers not only to satisfy customer requirements, but also to remain competitive in their market. This paper examines the financial benefits of TAT reduction using stochastic simulation.

T2 - Nineteenth IEEE/CPMT International Electronics Manufacturing Technology Symposium
AB - A number of companies have reported significant improvements in manufacturing performance through implementing the concepts of the Theory of Constraints suggested by Goldratt (1986). However, the implementation of these concepts in wafer fabs is not straightforward due to the presence of reentrant product flows. In this paper we examine the effects of downtime at non-bottleneck machines and different dispatching rules on the performance of a wafer fab operating under the Drum-Buffer-Rope release policy (Goldratt and Fox 1986). Our results show that downtime at non-bottleneck machines has significant detrimental effects on fab performance, and that the Critical Ratio dispatching rule performs well in terms of the tradeoff between cycle time and throughput.

AB - This article considers the single-machine dynamic scheduling problem where the jobs have different arrival times and the objective is to minimize the sum of completion times. This problem is known to be strongly NP-hard. We develop decomposition results for this problem such that a large problem can be solved by combining optimal solutions for several smaller problems. The decomposition results can be used with any implicit enumeration method to develop an optimal algorithm. Our computational experiment indicates that the computational efficiency of the currently best available branch-and-bound algorithm can be improved with the use of our decomposition results. © 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

AB - We address the problem of scheduling a single machine to minimize the total completion time in the face of dynamic job arrivals. Since the problem is strongly NP-hard, considerable research has been devoted to examining one-pass heuristic procedures for this problem. In this paper we present an iterative improvement heuristic which operates by modifying the problem data in a manner that allows one-pass heuristics to generate improved solutions. Computational experiments show that the procedure obtains significant improvements over a variety of one-pass heuristics in modest CPU times.

AB - A cutting-plane type algorithm for solving entropy optimization problems with a finite number of variables but an infinite number of linear constraints is proposed in this paper. In each iteration, we solve a finite entropy optimization problem and add one more constraint. The iterative process ends when an optimal solution is identified. A convergence proof, under some mild conditions, is given. An efficient implementation based on a dual approach is also included. Our preliminary computational experience confirms the efficiency of the proposed method and shows its potential for solving large-scale problems.

AB - For a min-max problem in the form of minx∈X maxt∈T {ft(x)}, the nondifferentiability of the max function F(x) ≡ maxt∈T {ft(x)} presents special difficulty in finding optimal solutions. We show that an entropic regularization procedure can provide a smooth approximation Fp(x) that uniformly converges to F(x) over X, as p tends to infinity. In this way, with p being sufficiently large, minimizing the smooth function Fp(x) over X provides a very accurate approximate solution to the min-max problem. When this approach is applied to solve linear semi-infinite programming problems, the previously proposed “unconstrained convex programming approach” is shown to be a special case.

AU - Fang, Shu-Cherng.

T2 - Optimization
AB - Solving a linear programming problem by perturbing its primal objective functiun with a barrier or penalty function for the development of interior-point methods has attracted much attention recently. However, the idea of perturbing the feasible region has not been fully explored. In this paper , we propose such an approach. Given a linear program with inequality constraints, aperturbed feasible region based on a measure of “constraint violation” in l p-norm is defined . Th e optimal so lution to the perturbed program is shown to converge to an optimal solution of the given linear program as the l p-norm tends to the l ∞, -norm. A simple formula which converts the optimal solution of a perturbed program to a dual feasible solution, which in turn converges to a dual optimal solution, of the given linear program is provided . In addition, an e-optimality theory that specifies the perturbation parameter in terms of required accuracy level e and other program parameters is studied

AB - To closely describe the earliness/tardiness production planning problems in the JIT environment, a nonlinear semi-infinite programming model is proposed. Due to the issues of non-convexivity and having infinitely many constraints, instead of applying traditional optimization approaches, a specially designed genetic algorithm with mutation along the negative gradient direction is developed. The proposed algorithm is a combination of the steepest descent method with the stochastic sampling algorithm. Some numerical results are included to show its potential for industrial applications.

TI - Linear programming with inequality constraints via entropic perturbation
AU - Tsao, H.-S. Jacob
AU - Fang, Shu-Cherng
T2 - International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences
AB - A dual convex programming approach to solving linear programs with inequality constraints through entropic perturbation is derived. The amount of perturbation required depends on the desired accuracy of the optimum. The dual program contains only non-positivity constraints. Anϵ-optimal solution to the linear program can be obtained effortlessly from the optimal solution of the dual program. Since cross-entropy minimization subject to linear inequality constraints is a special case of the perturbed linear program, the duality result becomes readily applicable. Many standard constrained optimization techniques can be specialized to solve the dual program. Such specializations, made possible by the simplicity of the constraints, significantly reduce the computational effort usually incurred by these methods. Immediate applications of the theory developed include an entropic path-following approach to solving linear semi-infinite programs with an infinite number of inequality constraints and the widely used entropy optimization models with linear inequality and/or equality constraints.

In Maple, using the Euler Lagrange equations, we compute the equations of motion. We have shown how to use the interface to transfer the equations to Scilab for simulation or control. We have shown that for dealing with complex models, we need the full power of Maple to perform change of variables which cannot be automatized since they require a deep a priori knowledge of the model.

T2 - Computers & Mathematics with Applications
AB - The Immersed Interface Method proposed by LeVeque and Li [1] is extended to three-dimensional elliptic equations of the form: ∇·(β(x)∇u(x))+κ(x)u(x)=f(x). We study the situation in which there is an irregular interface (surface) S contained in the solution domain across which β, κ and f may be discontinuous or even singular. As a result, the solution u will usually be nonsmooth or even discontinuous. A finite difference approach with a uniform Cartesian grid is used in the discretization. Local truncation error analysis is performed to estimate the accuracy of the numerical solution.

T2 - Intelligent Agents II Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages
AB - Intelligent agents, invented in artificial intelligence (AI), are finding application in a number of traditional areas. Classical AI notions such as knowledge and intentions can serve as natural primitives for the specification of agents. However, in order for them to live up to their promise, these notions must be given rigorous definitions. We propose formal definitions for intentions, knowledge, and know-how in a general model of actions and time. Our definitions are conceptually simple and are designed to be modular, in the sense of being orthogonal to one another. Using these definitions, we are able to prove a success result for agents that is akin to the notion of liveness in traditional computing. Others have been able to prove similar results only with the support of rather strong additional assumptions.

AU - Goodridge, S.G.

T2 - IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics
AB - Fuzzy linguistic rules provide an intuitive and powerful means for defining control behavior. Most applications that use fuzzy control feature a single layer of fuzzy inference, mapping a function from one or two inputs to equally few outputs. Highly complex systems, with large numbers of inputs, may also benefit from the use of qualitative linguistic rules if the control task is properly partitioned. This paper presents a modular fuzzy control architecture and inference engine that can be used to control complex systems. The control function is broken down into multiple local agents, each of which samples a subset of a large sensor input space. Additional fuzzy agents are employed to fuse the recommendations of the local agents. Real-time implementation without special hardware is possible by using singleton output values during fuzzy rule evaluation. A development tool is used to translate a fuzzy programming language offline for fast execution at run time. Using this system, a multilayered fuzzy behavior fusion based reactive control system has been implemented on an autonomous mobile robot, MARGE, with great success. MARGE won first place in Event III of the 1993 Robot Competition sponsored by the American Association for Artificial Intelligence.

T2 - International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control
AB - Results from an extensive study on the robustness of an H∞ compensator for a 2-D structural acoustic model are presented. The effects of frequency uncertainties in an exogenous signal are studied for both the case where the signal is contained in the controller formulation and the case where it is excluded. Delays are inserted in the input and/or output signals and their effect on the controller performance is recorded. A comparison between the standard LQG/Kalman filter and the H∞/Min-Max compensator reveals no significant differences in the overall controller performance. Modifications in the controller structure are studied to see whether loss of information (the tracking variable) that must be calculated a priori would result in performance degradation. This study provides valuable insight into the computational and implementational issues that arise when dealing with the control of large and complex systems that are governed by partial differential equations.

TI - Synthesizing distributed constrained events from transactional workflow specifications
T2 - Proceedings of the Twelfth International Conference on Data Engineering
AB - Workflows are the semantically appropriate composite activities in heterogeneous computing environments. Such environments typically comprise a great diversity of locally autonomous databases, applications and interfaces. Much good research has focused on the semantics of workflows and how to capture them in different extended transaction models. We address the complementary issues pertaining to how workflows may be declaratively specified and how distributed constraints may be derived from those specifications to enable local control, thus obviating a centralized scheduler. Previous approaches to this problem were limited and often lacked a formal semantics.

T2 - Distributed Systems Engineering
AB - Workflows are composite activities that can be used to support and automate multisystem applications involving humans, heterogeneous databases and legacy systems. The traditional atomic transaction model, successful for centralized and homogeneous applications, is not suitable for supporting such workflows. Intertask dependencies, which are conditions involving events and dependencies among workflow tasks, are used to specify the coordination requirements among the workflow tasks and are a central component of most workflow models. They form a basis for developing a uniform formal framework for workflows, which is a key contribution of this work. In this paper, we formalize intertask dependencies using temporal logic. This involves event attributes, which are needed to determine whether a dependency is enforceable and to properly schedule events. Each dependency is represented internally as a finite state automaton that captures the computations that satisfy the given dependency. Sets of automata are combined into a scheduler that produces global computations satisfying all relevant dependencies, thus enacting the given workflow. This algorithm is rigorously proved correct; it has been implemented.

AB - A feedback control computational methodology for reducing acoustic sound pressure levels in a two-dimensional cavity with a flexible boundary (a beam) is investigated. The control is implemented in this model through voltages to piezoceramic patches on the beam which are excited in a manner (out-of-phase) so as to produce pure bending moments. The incorporation of the output feedback control in this system leads to a problem with unbounded input and output terms. By writing the resulting system as an abstract Cauchy equation, the problem of reducing interior pressure levels can be posed in the context of an H/sub /spl infin///MinMax time-domain state-space formulation. A summary of extensive computational efforts comparing output feedback to full state feedback and investigating the effect of the number and location of sensors on performance of the control is presented.

AB - We present a qualitative model for the convergence behaviour of the Generalised Minimal Residual (GMRES) method for solving nonsingular systems of linear equationsAx =b in finite and infinite dimensional spaces. One application of our methods is the solution of discretised infinite dimensional problems, such as integral equations, where the constants in the asymptotic bounds are independent of the mesh size. Our model provides simple, general bounds that explain the convergence of GMRES as follows: If the eigenvalues ofA consist of a single cluster plus outliers then the convergence factor is bounded by the cluster radius, while the asymptotic error constant reflects the non-normality ofA and the distance of the outliers from the cluster. If the eigenvalues ofA consist of several close clusters, then GMRES treats the clusters as a single big cluster, and the convergence factor is the radius of this big cluster. We exhibit matrices for which these bounds are tight. Our bounds also lead to a simpler proof of existing r-superlinear convergence results in Hilbert space.

TI - Parameter estimation in a structural acoustic system with fully nonlinear coupling conditions
AU - Banks, H.T.
AU - Smith, R.C.
T2 - Mathematical and Computer Modelling
AB - A methodology for estimating physical parameters in a class of structural acoustic systems is presented. The general model under consideration consists of an interior cavity which is separated from an exterior disturbance by an enclosing elastic structure. Piezoceramic patches are bonded to or embedded in the structure; these can be used both as actuators and sensors in applications ranging from the control of interior noise levels to the determination of structural flaws through nondestructive evaluation techniques. The presence and excitation of the patches, however, changes the geometry and material properties of the structure as well as involves unknown patch parameters, thus necessitating the development of parameter estimation techniques which are applicable in this coupled setting. In developing a framework for approximation, parameter estimation and implementation, strong consideration is given to the fact that the input operator is unbonded due to the discrete nature of the patches. Moreover, the model is weakly nonlinear as a result of the coupling mechanism between the structural vibrations and the interior acoustic dynamics. Within this context, an illustrating model is given, well-posedness and approximation results are discussed and an applicable parameter estimation methodology is presented. The scheme is then illustrated through several numerical examples with simulations modeling a variety of commonly used structural acoustic techniques for system excitation and data collection.

AB - Abstract A frequently encountered scheduling problem is to determine a material and job ready time while simultaneously finding a production sequence given customer-specified due dates. Often the production times and due dates are vague. This paper presents an investigation of scheduling ready times for a set of jobs with fuzzy service times and due dates. The ready time is constrained in that the possibility that a job is late must not exceed a predefined value. The objective in such an instance is to maximize the ready time without violating these constraints. The steps necessary to determine the maximum ready time and cases in which this effort may be significantly reduced are presented for single machine and flow shop production systems. Finally, a branch and bound technique is developed for cases in which the optimal job sequence cannot be determined a priori.

TI - Manufacturing cell design: An integer programming model employing genetic algorithms

AB - The design of a cellular manufacturing system requires that a part population, at least minimally described by its use of process technology (part/machine incidence matrix), be partitioned into part families and that the associated plant equipment be partitioned into machine cells. At the highest level, the objective is to form a set of completely autonomous units such that inter-cell movement of parts is minimized. We present an integer program that is solved using a genetic algorithm (GA) to assist in the design of cellular manufacturing systems. The formulation uses a unique representation scheme for individuals (part/machine partitions) that reduces the size of the cell formation problem and increases the scale of problems that can be solved. This approach offers improved design flexibility by allowing a variety of evaluation functions to be employed and by incorporating design constraints during cell formation. The effectiveness of the GA approach is demonstrated on several problems from the literature.

AB - This paper examines the application of a genetic algorithm used in conjunction with a local improvement procedure for solving the location-allocation problem, a traditional multifacility location problem. This problem is difficult to solve using traditional optimization techniques because of its multimodal, nonconvex nature. The alternate location-allocation (ALA) method has been shown to be an effective local improvement procedure for the location-allocation problem. Using the ALA method, an empirical analysis was done to determine the number and size of the local minima of the location-allocation problem to demonstrate the reduction of the size of the search space that can be achieved through the use of the ALA method as an evaluator. A genetic algorithm that evaluates a series of ALA solutions was developed and compared to two traditional heuristic procedures for the problem: random restart and H4, a two-opt procedure. Like the genetic algorithm, both procedures evaluate a series of ALA solutions. A statistical analysis of the quality of the solutions provided by the three procedures for several problems of varying size demonstrated that the genetic algorithm provides the best solutions. An examination of the number of ALA evaluations performed by each procedure showed that the genetic algorithm also found solutions to the larger size problems much quicker than either the random restart or the H4 procedures.
