A language for failure patterns and application in safety analysis (2008)
Conference Proceeding
Wolforth, I., Walker, M., & Papadopoulos, Y. (2008). A language for failure patterns and application in safety analysis. doi:10.1109/depcos-relcomex.2008.44

Components and families of components in mechatronic systems often exhibit failure characteristics that are independent of system context and repeatable across applications. In this paper, we show that it is possible to capture and reuse such pattern... Read More

Merely recognising the existence of international management philosophies (e.g. Indian, Chinese, and Japanese) does not guarantee success in the workplace, conversely ignoring them may cause managerial problems which in turn is likely to significantl... Read More

Spiking neurons and synaptic stimuli : determining the fidelity of coincidence-factor in neural response comparison (2008)
Journal Article
Kambhampati, C., & Sarangdhar, M. (2007). Spiking neurons and synaptic stimuli : determining the fidelity of coincidence-factor in neural response comparison. Engineering Letters International Association of Engineers, 16(4), (512-517). ISSN 1816-0948

Similarity between two spike trains is generally estimated using a ‘coincidence factor’. This factor relies on counting coincidences of firing-times for spikes in a given time window. However, in cases where there are significant fluctuations in memb... Read More
