Paper Abstract

The physical objective is to create, for a time span of about an hour, an antenna reflector with an equivalent aperture diameter of about 300 kilometers, as shown in the last part of the introduction. To do this with the convex ocean surface requires use of ocean surface waves. The oweda system determines the surface wave source for a given reflectivity (from a floor slide to ship wakes). The most useful part of the oweda system is coordination of highly data intensive post processing issues involved with transient structural analysis. Transient analysis automation tends to hide details and provide too much data. OWEDA performs calculations and accumulate statistics during the analysis of the data so that extra storage is not necessary. The owedaState.c report takes far less space than one time step of data, S(n) equals (Theta) (n) and the operations run in tandem, T(n) equals (Theta) (n). The time complexity analysis shows how loose bounds on some processes can be overcome by tight bounds on others for an overall tight time complexity bound on the algorithm.
