Probabilistic approach for sensor fault detection and identification (A)
Operation performance of chemical, petrochemical and biochemical processes can be enhanced considerably by an integrated advisory system that is capable of performing simultaneous tasks of (1) instrument fault detection and identification and (2) process fault detection and diagnosis. Lack of such advisory system, at present, is due to the fact that one of the assumptions of normal process operation and functional sensors is always required in existing methods that perform tasks 1 and 2.

The Indian Reorganization Act of 1934, which became known as the Indian New Deal, dramatically changed the federal government's Indian policy. Although John Collier, the commissioner of Indian affairs who was responsible for the new policy, may have viewed Indians with great sympathy, not all Native Americans viewed his programs in equally positive terms.
