    • DSP Education At Rice University 

      Frantz, Patrick; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2003-09-01)
      Rice University has a decades-long tradition of both digital signal processing (DSP) research and education, beginning in 1968. Since that time, Rice University has become a world leader and continued to be a pioneer in ...
    • Edge Localized Image Sharpening via Reassignment with Application to Computed Tomography 

      Dorney, Timothy D.; Bhashyam, Srikrishna; Doran, Andrew; Choi, Hyeokho; Flandrin, Patrick; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2000-07-01)
      Traditional filtering methods operate on the entire signal or image. In some applications, however, errors are concentrated in specific regions or features. A prime example is images generated using computed tomography. ...
    • Imaging with Terahertz Pulses 

      Dorney, Timothy D.; Johnson, Jon L.; Mittleman, Daniel M.; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2000-07-01)
      Recently, a real-time imaging system based on terahertz (THz) time-domain spectroscopy has been developed. This technique offers a range of unique imaging modalities due to the broad bandwidth, sub-picosecond duration, and ...
    • Multifractal Cross-Traffic Estimation 

      Ribeiro, Vinay Joseph; Coates, Mark J.; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Sarvotham, Shriram; Hendricks, Brent; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2000-09-01)
      In this paper we develop a novel model-based technique, the Delphi algorithm, for inferring the instantaneous volume of competing cross-traffic across an end-to-end path. By using only end-to-end measurements, Delphi avoids ...
    • A Multifractal Wavelet Model with Application to Network Traffic 

      Riedi, Rudolf H.; Crouse, Matthew; Ribeiro, Vinay Joseph; Baraniuk, Richard G. (1999-04-01)
      In this paper, we develop a new multiscale modeling framework for characterizing positive-valued data with long-range-dependent correlations (1/f noise). Using the Haar wavelet transform and a special multiplicative structure ...
    • Multiscale Nature of Network Traffic 

      Abry, Patrice; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Flandrin, Patrick; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Veitch, Darryl (2002-05-01)
      The complexity and richness of telecommunications traffic is such that one may despair to find any regularity or explanatory principles. Nonetheless, the discovery of scaling behavior in tele-traffic has provided hope that ...
    • Optimal Signaling Strategies for Symmetric and Asymmetric Bit-Rate Communication Services in the Presence of Crosstalk 

      Gaikwad, Rohit; Baraniuk, Richard G. (1999-01-15)
      We have invented a new modem technology for transmitting data on conventional telephone lines (twisted pairs) at high speeds. This discovery is timely, as new standards are being developed for this Digital Subscriber Line ...
    • Optimal Transmit Spectra for Communication in the Presence of Crosstalk 

      Gaikwad, Rohit; Baraniuk, Richard G. (1999-06-01)
      This paper presents a general framework for designing optimal transmit spectra for symmetric bit-rate communication services dominated by crosstalk, in particular Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) services such as the proposed ...
    • PathChirp: Efficient Available Bandwidth Estimation for Network Paths 

      Ribeiro, Vinay Joseph; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Navratil, Jiri; Cottrell, Les (2003-04-01)
      This paper presents <i>PathChirp</i>, a new active probing tool for estimating the available bandwidth on a communication network path. Based on the concept of "self-induced congestion," PathChirp features an exponential ...
    • Quantization of Sparse Representations 

      Boufounos, Petros T.; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2007-01-16)
      Compressive sensing (CS) is a new signal acquisition technique for sparse and compressible signals. Rather than uniformly sampling the signal, CS computes inner products with randomized basis functions; the signal is then ...
    • Recent Advances in Terahertz Imaging 

      Koch, Martin; Rudd, J. Van; Neelamani, Ramesh; Gupta, Maya; Baraniuk, Richard G.; Mittleman, Daniel M. (1999-06-01)
      We review recent progress in the field of terahertz "T-ray" imaging. This relatively new imaging technique, based on terahertz time-domain spectroscopy, has the potential to be the first portable far-infared imagin ...
    • Spectral Optimization for Communication in the Presence of Crosstalk 

      Gaikwad, Rohit; Baraniuk, Richard G. (1999-03-01)
      This paper presents a general framework for designing optimal transmit spectra for communication services dominated by crosstalk --- for example Digital Subscriber Lines (DSLs) and wireless LANs. Using the channel, noise, ...
