  • A Matter of Perspective: Reliable Communication and Coping with Interference with Only Local Views 

    Kao, David (2012-09-05)
    This dissertation studies interference in wireless networks. Interference results from multiple simultaneous attempts to communicate, often between unassociated sources and receivers, preventing extensive coordination. ...
  • Cooperative Strategies for Near-Optimal Computation in Wireless Networks 

    Nokleby, Matthew (2013-07-24)
    Computation problems, such as network coding and averaging consen- sus, have become increasingly central to the study of wireless networks. Network coding, in which intermediate terminals compute and forward functions of ...
  • Distributed Resource Allocation with Local Information 

    Dash, Debashis (2013-12-09)
    Making distributed decisions based on incomplete information is inevitable in dynamic wireless networks due to a multitude of constraints. We study the effects of incomplete information on system performance in two parts. ...
  • Structure of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning 

    Wang, Kuanshen (1988)
    This thesis deals with one important aspect of Artificial Intelligence, knowledge representation and reasoning. Problems like knowledge representation hypothesis, production systems, and the proceduralist and declarativist ...
  • Toward a theory of information processing 

    Sinanovic, Sinan; Johnson, Don (2004-06-01)
    Information processing theory endeavors to quantify how well signals encode information and how well systems, by acting on signals, process information. We use information-theoretic distance measures, the Kullback-Leibler ...
