01 Nov 1973TL;DR: These results indicate that the easily computable textural features based on gray-tone spatial dependancies probably have a general applicability for a wide variety of image-classification applications.

Abstract: Texture is one of the important characteristics used in identifying objects or regions of interest in an image, whether the image be a photomicrograph, an aerial photograph, or a satellite image. This paper describes some easily computable textural features based on gray-tone spatial dependancies, and illustrates their application in category-identification tasks of three different kinds of image data: photomicrographs of five kinds of sandstones, 1:20 000 panchromatic aerial photographs of eight land-use categories, and Earth Resources Technology Satellite (ERTS) multispecial imagery containing seven land-use categories. We use two kinds of decision rules: one for which the decision regions are convex polyhedra (a piecewise linear decision rule), and one for which the decision regions are rectangular parallelpipeds (a min-max decision rule). In each experiment the data set was divided into two parts, a training set and a test set. Test set identification accuracy is 89 percent for the photomicrographs, 82 percent for the aerial photographic imagery, and 83 percent for the satellite imagery. These results indicate that the easily computable textural features probably have a general applicability for a wide variety of image-classification applications.

01 Jan 1997TL;DR: In this paper, a class of partial differential equations that generalize and are represented by Laplace's equation was studied. And the authors used the notation D i u, D ij u for partial derivatives with respect to x i and x i, x j and the summation convention on repeated indices.

Abstract: We study in this chapter a class of partial differential equations that generalize and are to a large extent represented by Laplace’s equation. These are the elliptic partial differential equations of second order. A linear partial differential operator L defined by
$$ Lu{\text{: = }}{a_{ij}}\left( x \right){D_{ij}}u + {b_i}\left( x \right){D_i}u + c\left( x \right)u $$
is elliptic on Ω ⊂ ℝ n if the symmetric matrix [a ij ] is positive definite for each x ∈ Ω. We have used the notation D i u, D ij u for partial derivatives with respect to x i and x i , x j and the summation convention on repeated indices is used. A nonlinear operator Q,
$$ Q\left( u \right): = {a_{ij}}\left( {x,u,Du} \right){D_{ij}}u + b\left( {x,u,Du} \right) $$
[D u = (D 1 u, ..., D n u)], is elliptic on a subset of ℝ n × ℝ × ℝ n ] if [a ij (x, u, p)] is positive definite for all (x, u, p) in this set. Operators of this form are called quasilinear. In all of our examples the domain of the coefficients of the operator Q will be Ω × ℝ × ℝ n for Ω a domain in ℝ n . The function u will be in C 2(Ω) unless explicitly stated otherwise.

TL;DR: A FORTRAN-IV coding of the fuzzy c -means (FCM) clustering program is transmitted, which generates fuzzy partitions and prototypes for any set of numerical data.

Abstract: This paper transmits a FORTRAN-IV coding of the fuzzy c -means (FCM) clustering program. The FCM program is applicable to a wide variety of geostatistical data analysis problems. This program generates fuzzy partitions and prototypes for any set of numerical data. These partitions are useful for corroborating known substructures or suggesting substructure in unexplored data. The clustering criterion used to aggregate subsets is a generalized least-squares objective function. Features of this program include a choice of three norms (Euclidean, Diagonal, or Mahalonobis), an adjustable weighting factor that essentially controls sensitivity to noise, acceptance of variable numbers of clusters, and outputs that include several measures of cluster validity.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors describe version 90 (C90) of the code, paying particular attention to changes in the atomic database and numerical methods that have affected predictions since the last publicly available version, C84.

Abstract: CLOUDY is a large‐scale spectral synthesis code designed to simulate fully physical conditions within an astronomical plasma and then predict the emitted spectrum. Here we describe version 90 (C90) of the code, paying particular attention to changes in the atomic database and numerical methods that have affected predictions since the last publicly available version, C84. The computational methods and uncertainties are outlined together with the direction future development will take. The code is freely available and is widely used in the analysis and interpretation of emission‐line spectra. Web access to the Fortran source for CLOUDY, its documentation Hazy, and an independent electronic form of the atomic database is also described.

TL;DR: The development and psychometric evaluation of a second version of the Acceptance and Action Questionnaire (AAQ-II), which assesses the construct referred to as, variously, acceptance, experiential avoidance, and psychological inflexibility, indicates the satisfactory structure, reliability, and validity of this measure.

Abstract: The present research describes the development and psychometric evaluation of a second version of the Acceptance and Action Questionnaire (AAQ-II), which assesses the construct referred to as, variously, acceptance, experiential avoidance, and psychological inflexibility. Results from 2,816 participants across six samples indicate the satisfactory structure, reliability, and validity of this measure. For example, the mean alpha coefficient is .84 (.78-.88), and the 3- and 12-month test-retest reliability is .81 and .79, respectively. Results indicate that AAQ-II scores concurrently, longitudinally, and incrementally predict a range of outcomes, from mental health to work absence rates, that are consistent with its underlying theory. The AAQ-II also demonstrates appropriate discriminant validity. The AAQ-II appears to measure the same concept as the AAQ-I (r=.97) but with better psychometric consistency.
