research statement

Professor Daniels' research interests include:

Time series prediction using neural networks optimized by evolutionary algorithms. Professor Daniels works with inputs generated by the chaotic Rossler equations, and with financial data. The goal is to produce a neural network that succeeds with closed loop prediction.

Minimal logic circuit realization of large truth tables using evolutionary algorithms. The performance of new algorithms is compared to the definitive Quine-McCluskey method, and the heuristic Espresso method, for both speed and gate count. Since both QM and Espresso end up with AND-to-OR two level logic forms, this work has attempted to create smaller realizations by allowing XOR gates in 3-level logic.

Medical Imaging. Professor Daniels has an interest in the registration of three-dimensional images from nuclear cardiology and angiography, which he has pursued in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute.

Other interests include: time series prediction; truth table minimization; eye movements; optimization with evolutionary algorithms; computer methods for automatic jigsaw puzzle solving; models for color vision which explain various aspects of color blindness.
