Nineteenth century freedom fighters : the 1st South Carolina Volunteers by Bennie J McRae ( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 1st South Carolina Volunteers, later the 33rd United States Colored Troops, were the first black unit of the Civil War. Preceding the famous 54th Massachusetts--seen in the film Glory--by one year, these South Carolina slaves turned soldiers were noted for their courage, discipline, and pride, continuing to serve the Union cause even while temporarily disbanded. They fought for years with little or no pay, poor equipment, and constant pressure and abuse from both North and South. This brief history is told mostly through the letters and journals of their commanding officer Lt. Col. Charles T. Trowbridge

Search for level sets of functions using computer experiments by Curtis M Miller ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In engineering and other fields, it is common to use a computer simulation to model a real world process. The inputs to a function f represent factors that influence the outcome. The output represents a quantity of interest. Often there will be a specified level L, and the objective is to find the inputs for which output is above L. L may be a tolerance level, and the inputs for which response is larger than L form a tolerance region. We might estimate the tolerance region by evaluating f on a grid, but even a coarse grid may have thousands of points in four or five dimensions. If the function f is costly to evaluate, we need to be able to estimate the tolerance region with as few evaluations as possible. We approach this problem with a sequential search. Use data at any stage to fit a spatial process that approximates the function. Fit a Gaussian spatial process, as described in Currin, Mitchell, Morris, and Ylvisaker[1991]. The spatial process gives an estimate of the L-contour. We can also use the process to estimate how much information would be gained if f is evaluated at point p. Choose points where it is estimated that f takes value L, but where uncertainty is high. Evaluate f at the chosen points. This will augment the set of data points and the vector of data values. Repeat the procedure with this augmented data. Calculate convergence criteria after each iteration, and stop when criteria reach predetermined goals. The search process is applied to several functions defined in low dimensional space. Finally, it is applied to an actual simulation function
The Impact of Personality on Team Performance by Robert Hogan ( Book )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This project tested some hypotheses regarding the influence of team member personality on team performance across a variety of team tasks. We first developed and tested a 7 factor system for classifying team tasks and developed a prototypical tasks for the research. We then conducted composed team experiments with 48 three-man teams. The results strongly support three conclusions: (1) Personality characteristics of team members predict team performance; (2) Personality characteristics interact with team task type; so that (3) Different characteristics are necessary for different team tasks.
