    • M-Band Multiwavelet Systems 

      Burrus, C. Sidney; Fernandes, Felix (1999-03-20)
      In this paper we investigate multiwavelet systems whose scaling functions have disjoint support. We demonstrate that, with the exception of a trivial case, this property may not be attained by two band multiwavelet systems. ...

      We study the alignment of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) in bubble imprints through polarized Raman microscopy. A hemispherical bubble containing SWCNTs is pressed against a glass substrate, resulting in an imprint ...

      Merchant, G.A.; Parks, T.W. (1981-04-01)
      Phase-only reconstruction of signals and its application to blind-deconvolution were introduced recently by Oppenheim, and by Hayes, et.al. In this report, we briefly present another description of this phase-only ...
    • Marginals vs. Covariance in Joint Distribution Theory 

      Baraniuk, Richard G. (1995-05-01)
      Recently, Cohen has proposed a method for constructing joint distributions of arbitrary physical quantities, in direct generalization of joint time-frequency representations. In this paper, we investigate the covariance ...
    • Markov analysis of multiple-disk prefetching strategies for external merging 

      Sadananda Pai, Vinay; Schaffer, Alejandro A.; Varman, Peter J. (1994-06-06)
      Multiple-disk organizations can be used to improve the I/O performance of problems like external merging. Concurrency can be introduced by overlapping I/O requests at different disks and by prefetching additional blocks ...
    • A Markov Chain Analysis of Blackjack Strategy 

      Wakin, Michael; Rozell, Chris (2004-07-01)
      Blackjack receives considerable attention from mathematicians and entrepreneurs alike, due to its simple rules, its inherent random nature, and the abundance of "prior" information available to an observant player. Many ...
    • A Massively Parallel Implementation of QC-LDPC Decoder on GPU 

      Wang, Guohui; Wu, Michael; Sun, Yang; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2011-06-01)
      The graphics processor unit (GPU) is able to provide a low-cost and flexible software-based multi-core architecture for high performance computing. However, it is still very challenging to efficiently map the real-world ...
    • A Mathematical Model of the Vagally Driven SA Nodal Pacemaker 

      Greco, E.C.; Clark, Jr., J.W. (1975-01-20)
      A model is developed for the vagal control of SA nodal activity in the heart and consists essentially of a modified bonhoeffer-Van der Pol (BVP) model of the "free-running" SA node and a lumped model of the neural terminations ...
    • Matrix Based Computation of Floating-Point Roundoff Noise 

      Van Veen, Barry D.; Baraniuk, Richard G. (1989-12-01)
      A matrix based procedure is presented for computing the output roundoff noise power for filters implemented with floating-point arithmetic. The filter's computational structure is represented in terms of a product of ...
