Two-Boson Truncation of Pauli-Villars-RegulatedYukawa Theory ( )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We apply light-front quantization, Pauli-Villars regularization, and numerical techniques to the nonperturbative solution of the dressed-fermion problem in Yukawa theory in 3 + 1 dimensions. The solution is developed as a Fock-state expansion truncated to include at most one fermion and two bosons. The basis includes a negative-metric heavy boson and a negative-metric heavy fermion in order to provide the necessary cancellations of ultraviolet divergences. The integral equations for the Fock-state wave functions are solved by reducing them to effective one-boson--one-fermion equations for eigenstates with J{sub z} = 1/2. The equations are converted to a matrix equation with a specially tuned quadrature scheme, and the lowest mass state is obtained by diagonalization. Various properties of the dressed-fermion state are then computed from the nonperturbative light-front wave functions. This work is a major step in our development of Pauli-Villars regularization for the nonperturbative solution of four-dimensional field theories and represents a significant advance in the numerical accuracy of such solutions

The Accuracy of Independent Estimates of the Procurement Costs of Major Systems ( )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper reports the results of an assessment of the accuracy of the independent estimates of procurement costs the Department of Defense uses in milestone reviews of major acquisition programs. IDA initially examined 63 major programs that received authorization to begin Engineering and Manufacturing Development during the years 1985 through 1998. The data needed to evaluate the accuracy of the independent procurement cost estimates could be located for only 25 of these programs. IDA found that the independent cost estimate was reasonably accurate for 18 of those 25 cases. In the remaining cases, the independent estimate was sometimes substantially too high and sometimes substantially too low

Assessing cost-reduction initiatives in a changing defense acquisition environment : a handbook by Karen W Tyson ( )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In the changing defense acquisition environment, cost analysts have been confronted with claims of significant savings from new manufacturing techniques and other cost reduction initiatives. In some cases, acquisition programs would be unaffordable without these initiatives. This handbook provides methods for assessing the realism of savings estimates from cost reduction initiatives. While the initiatives are of recent vintage, some of them have historical antecedents or have been practiced in the commercial world before their adoption by government contractors. Evidence from these practices can be helpful in assessing the initiatives. The handbook provides this historical perspective, including early implementations and lessons, where available. It also provides a taxonomy of the initiatives, including generally accepted definitions, hypothesized cost impacts, benefits, and caveats. The potential impact of interdependencies among initiatives is highlighted. A recommended process for assessing initiatives, based on an investment framework of costs and benefits, is also presented and discussed
SKYNET Applications Software Package (SASP) Operator's and User's Handbook ( Book )
1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The objective of the Defense Nuclear Agency sponsored SKYNET program is to develop a methodology for the assessment of satellite vulnerability to system generated electromagnetic pulse (SGEMP) effects from nuclear weapons. The approach includes a study of basic phenomenology and development of cost-effective simulation techniques, as well as improving SGEMP instrumentation and data acquisition and recording techniques. This report presents a new procedure for capturing and processing complex SGEMP transients. The method is incorporated into an SGEMP Transportable Automated Recording System (STARS). It reduces manual data handling significantly (a major source of errors); outputs data as computer compatible magnetic tapes, annotated hard copies, or both; and lessens the manpower requirements for data acquisition and processing. The software implementation, SKYNET Applications Software Package (SASP), is discussed here to provide STARS operators and users with the detailed information needed to effectively utilize the system. A companion volume, the SKYNET Applications Software Package (SASP) Programmer's Handbook, contains detailed summaries of all SASP source codes
SKYNET Applications Software Package (SASP) Programmer's Handbook ( Book )
1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The objective of the Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA) sponsored SKYNET program is to develop a methodology for the assessment of satellite vulnerability to system generated electromagnetic pulse (SGEMP) effects from nuclear weapons. The approach includes a study of basic phenomenology and development of cost-effective simulation techniques, as well as improving SGEMP instrumentation and data acquisition and recording techniques. This report summarizes the software developed to acquire and reduce SGEMP data on satellite models for the SKYNET project. Included are comprehensive descriptions of the tasks, subroutines, and common areas. Accompanied by the source and task builder listings and the companion volume titled SKYNET Applications Software Package (SASP) Operator's and User's Handbook, this material provides the reader with a detailed explanation of the SGEMP Transportable Automated Recording System (STARS) operation.

The Acquisition Portfolio Schedule Costing/Optimization Model: A Tool for Analyzing the RDT & E and Production Schedules of DoD ACAT I Systems ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
IDA investigated whether the excess capacity present at military production plants can be exploited to produce more cost-effective production schedules for major acquisition programs. IDA developed a mixed-integer mathematical programming (MIP) model called the Acquisition Portfolio Scheduling Costing/Optimization Model, which can either cost or optimize the production schedules of approximately 100 Acquisition Category (ACAT) I programs over an 18-year period. The model's output also provides an estimate of what it costs the Department of Defense (DoD) to operate in its current fashion without adjusting (optimizing) the systems' production schedules. This document describes the model, its functions, and methodologies

Data acquisition and reduction on a large-scale systems generated electromagnetic pulse (SGEMP) test program are traditionally costly and tedious. The most widely used methods of acquiring and recording the system response waveforms involve the use of oscilloscopes and cameras, the waveforms being captured on Polaroid film. This method requires that the analog waveforms(oscillograms) be digitized, usually by hand, into a computer-compatible format prior to applying automated data analysis techniques. The amount of manual data handling and the need for many skilled technicians make this an error-sensitive and costly procedure. This report presents a new procedure for capturing and processing complex SGEMP transients. The method is incorporated into an SGEMP transportable Automated Recording System (STARS). It reduces manual data handling significantly (a major source of errors); outputs data as computer compatible magnetic tapes, annotated hard copies, or both; and lessens the manpower requirements for data acquisition and processing. The software implementation, SKYNET Applications Software Package (SASP), is discussed here to provide STARS operators and users with the detailed information needed to effectively utilize the system
