FAST, developed by OCLC and based on LCSH, is a faceted vocabulary for online resources with interoperability with many metadata schema. This presentation will introduce the history and context of FAST, and explain its structure, give examples of subject headings, show several implementations, and demo the test database.

Do the Subjective Visual Vertical and the Subjective Haptic Vertical Probe a Common Estimate of Gravitational Upright? Fraser, Lindsey Ellen (2015-01-26)In the subjective visual vertical (SVV) and the subjective haptic vertical (SHV) task, participants must judge the alignment of a probe rod with perceived gravitational vertical by sight or by touch. Previous research ...
Sahafzadeh, Meysam; Kostiuk, Larry; Dworkin, Seth (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)The stretched laminar flame model provides a convenient approach to embed realistic chemical kinetics when simulating turbulent premixed flames. When positive-only periodic strain rates are applied to a laminar flame there ...
Derivation of Mixture Distribution and Weighted Likelihood as minimizers of KL-divergence subject to constraints Wang, Xiaogang; Zidek, James V. (Annals - Institute of Statistical Mathematics, 2005)In this article, mixture distributions and weighted likelihoods are derived within an information-theoretic framework and shown to be closely related. This surprising relationship obtains in spite of the arithmetic form ...
