  • A Framework for Testing Concurrent Programs 

    Ricken, Mathias (2011)
    This study proposes a new framework that can effectively apply unit testing to concurrent programs, which are difficult to develop and debug. Test-driven development, a practice enabling developers to detect bugs early by ...
  • Cooperative Partial Detection for MIMO Relay Networks 

    Amiri, Kiarash (2011)
    Cooperative communication has recently re-emerged as a possible paradigm shift to realize the promises of the ever increasing wireless communication market; how- ever, there have been few, if any, studies to translate ...
  • Amplified Encounters at High Speed 

    Sibley, Rebecca (2011)
    This thesis expands upon the dialogue between speed and architecture, investigating how architecture reinterprets the linear city, originally defined by the continuous fabric of the freeway and more recently reconfigured ...
  • Plato, Souls, and Motions 

    Prince, Brian D. (2011)
    Plato’s late works contain an unexpectedly consistent treatment of the physics and metaphysics of souls. In the course of showing this, I argue that: (1) the middle period dialogues Phaedo and Republic assume, but do not ...
  • Learning the Structure of High-Dimensional Manifolds with Self-Organizing Maps for Accurate Information Extraction 

    Zhang, Lili (2011)
    This work aims to improve the capability of accurate information extraction from high-dimensional data, with a specific neural learning paradigm, the Self-Organizing Map (SOM). The SOM is an unsupervised learning algorithm ...
  • Parallel VLSI Architectures for Multi-Gbps MIMO Communication Systems 

    Sun, Yang (2011)
    In wireless communications, the use of multiple antennas at both the transmitter and the receiver is a key technology to enable high data rate transmission without additional bandwidth or transmit power. Multiple-input ...
  • The Effects of Land Use and Human Activities on Carbon Cycling in Texas Rivers 

    Zeng, Fan-Wei (2011)
    I investigated how land use and human activities affect the sources and cycling of carbon (C) in subtropical rivers. Annually rivers receive a large amount of terrestrial C, process a portion of this C and return it to the ...
  • Stories Told in the Shape of a Sphere 

    Hooper, Rachel (2010-08-28)
    Amy Patton's latest film Oil slips between a theater production of Upton Sinclair's novel of the same name and the making of the film itself. Bitter, Black Thoughts is the first book on Patton's films and features her notes ...
  • Carbon Nanotubes Filled Polymer Composites: A Comprehensive Study on Improving Dispersion, Network Formation and Electrical Conductivity 

    Chakravarthi, Divya Kannan (2010)
    In this dissertation, we determine how the dispersion, network formation and alignment of carbon nanotubes in polymer nanocomposites affect the electrical properties of two different polymer composite systems: high temperature ...
  • Now Let the Storm Break Loose 

    Hooper, Rachel (2009-10-31)

  • A Computational Model of Routine Procedural Memory 

    Tamborello, Franklin Patrick, II (2009)
    Cooper and Shallice (2000) implemented a computational version of the Norman and Shallice’s (1986) Contention Scheduling Model (CSM). The CSM is a hierarchically organized network of action schemas and goals. Botvinick and ...
  • Making Waste Public 

    Gambetta, Curt (2009)
    This thesis questions the boundaries that define waste as a public or private dilemma, investigating these boundaries as productive sites for the imagination of social life. Learning from methods of processing, conveyance ...
  • Visual Displays: Developing a Computational Model Explaining the Global Effect 

    Stanley, Clayton (2009)
    This work aims to integrate Byrne’s theory of visual salience computation (2006) with Salvucci’s model of eye movements (2001) by testing participants on a visual search task similar to Findlay (1997). By manipulating the ...
