Usage


In science:

Without such methodologies, unsystematic development will continue to persist resulting in kludge with consequential problems of cost and interoperability.
A Connection-Centric Survey of Recommender Systems Research
Superplotted on these waveforms are the “kludge ” waves described in Ref. (from which this plot i s taken).
(Sort of) Testing relativity with extreme mass ratio inspirals
The kludge matches the strong- field calculation so well that the differences can barely be noted in this plot.
(Sort of) Testing relativity with extreme mass ratio inspirals
It’s worth noting that recent work [18, 19] has shown that almost all of the features of the waveforms developed in the strong field analysis can be reproduced using a very simple “kludge” approximation in which a flat spacetime wave formula is coupled to the geodesic motion of a small body orbiting a black hole.
(Sort of) Testing relativity with extreme mass ratio inspirals
Indeed, the agreement between the two approaches is somewhat embarrassing — we have superp lotted waveforms produced by the “kludge” on the strong field results in Figs. 1 and 2.
(Sort of) Testing relativity with extreme mass ratio inspirals
Superplotted on this waveform is a “kludge ” inspiral as de scribed in Ref. (from which this plot is taken).
(Sort of) Testing relativity with extreme mass ratio inspirals
As in Fig. 1, the kludge matches the strong- fie ld embarrassingly well.
(Sort of) Testing relativity with extreme mass ratio inspirals
One approach to the problem is the construction of a family of simpler, approximate waveforms, called “kludge” waveforms, which nevertheless capture the main features of the true signals.62 S.
Post-Newtonian Approximations, Compact Binaries, and Strong-Field Tests of Gravity
Babak has discussed the progress in compiling a bank of detection templates which are numerical kludge (NK) waveforms.
Post-Newtonian Approximations, Compact Binaries, and Strong-Field Tests of Gravity
Our models use the KLUDGE approximation (Ferland (2002)).
Constraining the extra heating of the Diffuse Ionized Gas in the Milky Way
The second argument is essentially a semantic kludge.
