This note presents the simplest overlapping generations model. The model is due
to Diamond (1965), who built on earlier work by Samuelson (1958).
Overlapping generations models capture the fact that individuals do not live
forever, but die at some point and thus have finite life-cycles. Overlapping generations
models are especially useful for analysing the macro-economic effects of
different pension systems.
We improve the quality of statistical machine translation (SMT) by applying models that predict word forms from their stems using extensive morphological and syntactic information from both the source and target languages. Our inﬂection generation models are trained independently of the SMT system.
This paper reports work in progress on a sentence generation model which attempts to emulate certain language output patterns of children between the ages of one and one-half and three years. In particular, the model addresses the issue of why missing or phonetically "null" subjects appear as often as they do in the speech of young Englishspeaking children. It will also be used to examine why other patterns of output appear in the speech of children learning languages such as Italian and Chinese.
We present a novel PCFG-based architecture for robust probabilistic generation based on wide-coverage LFG approximations (Cahill et al., 2004) automatically extracted from treebanks, maximising the probability of a tree given an f-structure. We evaluate our approach using stringbased evaluation. We currently achieve coverage of 95.26%, a BLEU score of 0.7227 and string accuracy of 0.7476 on the Penn-II WSJ Section 23 sentences of length ≤20. grammar for generation.
In this paper we tackle the problem of automatic caption generation for news images. Our approach leverages the vast resource of pictures available on the web and the fact that many of them are captioned. Inspired by recent work in summarization, we propose extractive and abstractive caption generation models. They both operate over the output of a probabilistic image annotation model that preprocesses the pictures and suggests keywords to describe their content.
This module provides students with an introduction to Microsoft Solutions
Framework (MSF) risk management, including principles of successful risk
management, MSF proactive risk management, risk management strategies, a
in-depth information on the steps of the risk management process.
The activity for this module is a brainstorming session, with the instructor
capturing and writing down ideas as the class develops them. Typically, peop
tend to think in terms of the consequences of risk.
Certified that the work contained in the thesis entiled "
Verilog-to-C-Compiler: Simulator Generator " by " Anand Vivek Srivastava", has been carried out under my supervision and that this work has not been submitted elsewhere for a degree.
This paper describes a compiler, which converts from Verilog to C. The output is then compiled to machine native code and tends to execute faster than native mode Verilog simulation because the compiler preserves only the synthesis semantics, not the simulation semantics, of Verilog and performs logic minimization.
This book focuses on how to create game art properly for a game engine,
as well as how to export that art to the engine and make script
changes so that the art becomes a viable part of the game.
Although many of the processes and techniques will apply to specific
modeling, texturing, animation, and game software solutions, this book
will use 3ds Max release 8 to generate models and animations, and the
Torque Game Engine for the game-side examples.
Since it’s standardization by the OMG (Object Management Group) in November 1997,
the Unified Modeling Language (UML) has had a tremendous impact on how software
systems are developed. The role of modeling in specifying and documenting complex
software systems is being accepted, and an industrial approach to software engineering
is on its way to becoming reality.
This book covers the recent development and progress of the wind energy conversion system. The chapters are contributed by prominent researchers in the field of wind energy and cover grid integration issues, modern control theories applied in wind energy conversion system, and dynamic and transient stability studies.
This book deals with the acceleration of EDA algorithms using hardware platforms such as FPGAs and GPUs. Widely applied CAD algorithms are evaluated and compared for potential acceleration on FPGAs and GPUs. Coverage includes discussion of conditions under which it is preferable to use one platform over another, e.g., when an EDA problem has a high degree of data parallelism, the GPU is typically the preferred platform, whereas when the problem has more control, an FPGA may be preferred.
Every student of finance or applied economics learns the lessons of Franco Modigliani and Merton Miller. Their landmark paper, published in 1958, laid out the basic underpinnings of modern finance and these two distinguished academics were both subsequently awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics. Simply stated, companies create value when they generate returns that exceed their costs. More specifically, the returns of successful companies will exceed the risk-adjusted cost of the capital used to run the business.
Landfill gas from a source of green energy, clean, renewable and can be used to create
electricity, or used in the energy industry. This paper reviews the potential energy recovery
landfill gas from municipal solid waste, to reducing methane emissions in particular, and reduced
greenhouse gas emissions in general. In addition, this paper provides an assessment using the model of
methane generated from landfill municipal solid waste and generate energy potential of gas recovered.
In particular, this paper uses a life cycle assessment methods ......
Model based testing is the most powerful technique for testing hardware and software systems. Models in Hardware Testing describes the use of models at all the levels of hardware testing. The relevant fault models for nanoscaled CMOS technology are introduced, and their implications on fault simulation, automatic test pattern generation, fault diagnosis, memory testing and power aware testing are discussed.
Interest in particle physics continues apace. With the Large Hadron Collider showing
early tantalizing glimpses of what may yet prove to be the elusive Higgs Boson,
particle physics remains a fertile ground for creative theorists. While the Standard
model of particle physics remains hugely successful, nevertheless it is still not fully
regarded as a complete holistic description.
