  • Publication number: 20100226589
    Abstract: A system and method for a hybrid, variational, user-controlled, 3D mesh smoothing for orphaned shell meshes. The smoothing model is based on a variational combination of energy and equi-potential minimization theories. A variety of smoothing techniques for predicting a new location for the node-to-smooth are employed. Each node is moved according to a specific smoothing algorithm so as to keep element included angles, skew and distortion to a minimum. The variational smoother selection logic is based on nodal valency and element connectivity pattern of the node to smooth. Results show its consistency with both quadrilateral and quad-dominant meshes with a significant gain over conventional Laplacian schemes in terms of mesh quality, stability, user control and flexibility.

  • Publication number: 20100138737
    Abstract: A system and method for context management which addresses the above problems while isolating the context management functions from the other functional code found on the server system. The context management system includes a context manager component which stores and retrieves name-value pairs describing the context in which the current request is being processed. In doing so, three types of context data are distinguished: static, dynamic, and transient. The context manager stores context data regarding each of a user's sessions and page flows, and returns context data in response to requests from the server system. Using this context data, the server system can then interact with the user in a manner appropriate to the user's context.

  • Publication number: 20100042449
    Abstract: In certain embodiments, a method includes accessing one or more parameters based on an IT service request received from an upper-layer IT interface, the parameters formatted according to an upper-layer IT interface construct. Appropriate IT domains are determined, according to at least a portion of the parameters, from a number of IT domains for implementing IT infrastructure for fulfilling the request, the domains each associated with one or more vendor-specific solutions for providing IT infrastructure of a type associated with the domain. Using a common semantic interrelational data model that includes mappings of constructs for upper-layer IT interfaces to constructs for IT domains, at least a portion of the parameters are translated from the upper-layer IT interface construct into constructs suitable for use by the determined appropriate domains.

  • Publication number: 20100042402
    Abstract: An apparatus, and an associated method, detects spam and other fraudulent messages sent to a recipient station. The textual portion of a received message is analyzed to determine whether the message includes errors made by non-native language speakers when authoring a text message. A text analysis engine analyzes the text using rules sets that identify grammatical errors made by non-native language speakers, usage errors made by non-native language speakers, and other errors.

  • Publication number: 20100036665
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer program products, for automatically creating a speech-based user interface involve identifying a software service definition that includes service inputs, service outputs, and context data and accessing a standard user interface incorporating the service input and output. The standard user interface defines a set of valid inputs for the service input and a set of available outputs, at least one of which based on the context data. Audio data is associated with at least some of the inputs in the set of valid inputs to define a set of valid speech inputs. A speech-based user interface is automatically generated from the standard user interface and the set of valid speech inputs.

  • Publication number: 20100030888
    Abstract: An apparatus, and an associated method, for facilitating monitoring of a system, such as a system formed of an IT infrastructure. A detector detects the occurrence of system events, such as system faults or other anomalies. The detected events are matched with a set of rules, such by correlating attributes of the detected system events, to determine which events are related. Related events are grouped together into a group. An identification of the group is generated and displayed upon a display monitor. The individual events that comprise the group are hidden from view, i.e., collapsed behind the group identification.
