Welcome to the Algorithm Web on NRAO's Public Wiki.

The Algorithms Research and Development Group (ARDG)

The ARDG was approved after discussion of the original proposal by the Office of End-to-End Operations (OEO) and by the management responsible for the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA). A simplified operations document has been developed . The ARDG project was reviewed on 28 July 2009 by the director, please see the slide presentation.

List of needed algorithms

DevelopmentList contains a list of needed algorithms with priorities and assignments as appropriate. It also contains a list of known algorithms that need to be implemented. Both lists are preliminary.

List of algorithm publications

PublicationList contains a list of relevant documents and papers.

Pointers to relevant documents

As mentioned in the proposal, we will try to maintain a website that has pointers to relevant documents that may be found elsewhere on the web. Presently this is a fledgling: content needs to be expanded; format needs to be improved.
