AbstractWe introduce a new approach for procedural modeling. Our main idea is to select shapes using selection-expressions instead of simple string matching used in current state-of-the-art grammars like CGA shape and CGA++. A selection-expression specifies how to select a potentially complex subset of shapes from a shape hierarchy, e.g.

SponsorsWe would like to thank Michael Schwarz for developing an initial version of the language and procedural modeling system with us in 2015/2016. He proposed the concepts of virtual, attached, and contained shapes and contributed to the development of the navigation-based selection and constraint handling. He also created Figure 1 and suggested the term selection expression. We also hadmultiple helpful discussions with Peter Rautek and Liangliang Nan about SELEX. Fuzhang Wu helped with the comparison to CGA shape. Further, we would like to acknowledge funding from the Visual Computing Center (VCC) at KAUST through the CARF program and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (61620106003, 61802362, 61772523, and 61331018).

Bayesian Subset Modeling for High-Dimensional Generalized Linear ModelsLiang, Faming; Song, Qifan; Yu, Kai (Journal of the American Statistical Association, Informa UK Limited, 2013-06) [Article]This article presents a new prior setting for high-dimensional generalized linear models, which leads to a Bayesian subset regression (BSR) with the maximum a posteriori model approximately equivalent to the minimum extended Bayesian information criterion model. The consistency of the resulting posterior is established under mild conditions. Further, a variable screening procedure is proposed based on the marginal inclusion probability, which shares the same properties of sure screening and consistency with the existing sure independence screening (SIS) and iterative sure independence screening (ISIS) procedures. However, since the proposed procedure makes use of joint information from all predictors, it generally outperforms SIS and ISIS in real applications. This article also makes extensive comparisons of BSR with the popular penalized likelihood methods, including Lasso, elastic net, SIS, and ISIS. The numerical results indicate that BSR can generally outperform the penalized likelihood methods. The models selected by BSR tend to be sparser and, more importantly, of higher prediction ability. In addition, the performance of the penalized likelihood methods tends to deteriorate as the number of predictors increases, while this is not significant for BSR.

Performance evaluation of Maxwell and Cercignani-Lampis gas-wall interaction models in the modeling of thermally driven rarefied gas transportLiang, Tengfei; Li, Qi; Ye, Wenjing (Physical Review E, American Physical Society (APS), 2013-07-16) [Article]A systematic study on the performance of two empirical gas-wall interaction models, the Maxwell model and the Cercignani-Lampis (CL) model, in the entire Knudsen range is conducted. The models are evaluated by examining the accuracy of key macroscopic quantities such as temperature, density, and pressure, in three benchmark thermal problems, namely the Fourier thermal problem, the Knudsen force problem, and the thermal transpiration problem. The reference solutions are obtained from a validated hybrid DSMC-MD algorithm developed in-house. It has been found that while both models predict temperature and density reasonably well in the Fourier thermal problem, the pressure profile obtained from Maxwell model exhibits a trend that opposes that from the reference solution. As a consequence, the Maxwell model is unable to predict the orientation change of the Knudsen force acting on a cold cylinder embedded in a hot cylindrical enclosure at a certain Knudsen number. In the simulation of the thermal transpiration coefficient, although all three models overestimate the coefficient, the coefficient obtained from CL model is the closest to the reference solution. The Maxwell model performs the worst. The cause of the overestimated coefficient is investigated and its link to the overly constrained correlation between the tangential momentum accommodation coefficient and the tangential energy accommodation coefficient inherent in the models is pointed out. Directions for further improvement of models are suggested.
