Putting Together the Pieces of the Universe

"Putting Together the Pieces of the Universe"

A lecture delivered by UCI Professor James Bullock on February 11, 2009. James Bullock, Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy at UC Irvine, is part of a team of scientists who believe they have discovered the minimum mass for galaxies in the universe -- 10 million times the mass of the sun. This mass could be the smallest known "building block" of the mysterious, invisible substance called dark matter. Stars that form within these b

A Conceptual Framework for Conversations and Services
In this article a conceptual framework is developed that specifies the terms and their relationships that will be used for specifying conversational processes in ELeGI. The first part consists of a glossary of terms, each with an informal, textual description. These descriptions are the basis for more formal definitions as to be further specified in a machine readable and re-usable ontology. This ontology, represented in OWL is still under development. This ontology, specifies the building sto

Near- Real-Time Control of Human Figure Models
Includes bibliography. Animating human figures is one of the major problems in computer animation. A recent approach is the use of dynamic analysis to compute the movement of a human figure, given the forces and torques operating within and upon the body. One of the problems with this technique is computing the forces and torques required for particular motions: this has been called the control problem of dynamic analysis. To develop a better understanding of this problem, an interactive interfa
