  • A Connectionist Model of Poetic Meter

    3163 Words  | 7 Pages

    Connectionist Model of Poetic Meter Abstract. Traditional analyses of meter are hampered by their inability to image the interaction of various elements which affect the stress patterns of a line of poetry or provide a system of notation fully amenable to computational analysis. To solve these problems, the connectionist models of James McClelland and David Rumelhart in Explorations in Parallel Distributed Processing (1988) are applied to the analysis of English poetic meter. The model graphically

    evaluation done on the strength of password meters. Almost all of us are exposed to password-strength meters in our everyday life. The general representation of password meter is a colored bar which when seen as a short red bar indicates a weak password and a long green bar indicates a strong password. The real purpose of a password meter is to show the path for better security to its users. However the strengths and weaknesses of these widely deployed meters has rarely been studied and hence this paper

    to: 1)     Set the DC power supply to a specific voltage. 2)     Properly connect the voltmeter to measure voltage. 3)     Measure current with the ammeter. 4)     Measure resistance with the ohmmeter. 5)     Determine the accuracy of a given meter reading. Theory The theory required for this experiment was an understanding of Ohm’s Law. Ohm’s Law is the algebraic relationship between voltage and current for a resistor. Resistance is the capacity of materials to impede the flow of current

However, the collision is not completely elastic and the dribbler pushes the ball with an initial force to ensure that it returns to his hand. To simplify the process I will first consider a situation in which the ball is allowed to fall freely from a height of 1 meter and has a perfectly elastic collision
