Nonparametric probability density estimation by Richard A Tapia ( Book )
11 editions published between 1978 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nonparametric function estimation, modeling, and simulation by James R Thompson ( Book )
15 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Topics emphasized include nonparametric density estimation as an exploratory device plus the deeper models to which the exploratory analysis points, multi-dimensional data analysis, and analysis of remote sensing data, cancer progression, chaos theory, epidemiological modeling, and parallel based algorithms. New methods discussed are quick nonparametric density estimation based techniques for resampling and simulation based estimation techniques not requiring closed form solutions

Ends with clips of: Michael Spencer, Afro-American professor at Howard University; Victoria Aguilera, Mexican American engineer at Disney; Wilfred Denetclaw, Jr., Navajo biologist at University of California, San Francisco; Donna Auguste, Afro-American woman computer scientist at US West; and Mario Molina (Hispanic) and Sherwood Williams from MIT, winners of the 1995 Nobel Prize for their research on ozone destruction
A local procedure for error detection and data smoothing by Víctor Guerra ( Book )
5 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this paper the authors present a local method for data smoothing which is modelled after the manual loft in the ship building industry. The method very effectively solves the outlier problem in statistics, and is superior to the well-known global procedures such as the Schoenberg-Reinsch spline algorithm when it is known that the points have only isolated errors or isolated large errors
The gradient projection method and Curry's theorem by Garth P McCormick ( Book )
4 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Consider the sequence obtained by applying the gradient projection method to the problem of minimizing a continuously differentiable functional over a closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space. In this paper it is shown that if the subset is a regular subset, which includes polyhedral subsets, or the positive cone of an orthogonal set, then any cluster point of this sequence must be a constrained stationary point. These results generalize a well-known theorem, due to Curry, for unconstrained minimization in Euclidean space. (Author)

Convergence of the gradiant method in normed linear spaces by R. H Byrd ( Book )
4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Recently Golomb and Tapia defined the gradient of a (C sup 1) functional on an arbitrary normed linear space. They showed that their gradient method coincides with the known method of steepest descent and established Curry's theorem (any cluster point of the gradient sequence is a stationary point) under the assumption that the gradient operator be single valued and continuous. In this paper the authors prove Curry's theorem in the full generality of normed linear spaces. This includes many important applications in which the gradient operator is neither continuous nor single valued
SCHAUDER DIMENSION IN BANACH SPACES by Richard A Tapia ( Book )
4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A relationship between Hamel and Schauder dimension in Banach spaces is established. (Author)
Computable A Posteriori (L sub infinity) Error Bounds for the Approximate Solution of Two Point Boundary Value Problems by Mary Anne McCarthy ( Book )
4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this paper the authors use the general theory of Newton's method for operator equations with functional constraints recently developed by Tapia and the Kantorovich theorem to construct (C sup 1) approximations to the solution and its derivative of the nonlinear two point boundary value problem and computable (L sub infinity) error bounds for both approximations. Several numerical examples for both boundary value and initial value problems are included. (Author)
A generalization of Newton's method with an application to the Euler-Lagrange equation by Richard A Tapia ( Book )
4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The paper presents a procedure for approximating the zeros of a nonlinear operator P from a Banach space X to a Banach space Y. This procedure is general enough to include the generalized Euler-Lagrange equation. The procedure presented is called the weak Newton method and is a generalization of L.V. Kantorovish's Newton's method
The Kantorovich theorem and error estimates for Newton's method by Louis B Rall ( Book )
3 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this note the authors derive a simple recurrence relation for the best possible error estimates the Kantorovich theorem can give for Newton's method. This formulation has, as immediate consequences, all previously derived error estimates and some improved error estimates. (Author)
