    • 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 Plaut (2004) instead took a connectionist approach to modeling routine procedural behavior. They argued in favor of holistic, ...
    • 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 incorporating unit testing into the development process, has become wide-spread, but it has only been effective for programs with ...
    • 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 by the high speed rail line. Using the linear city as a site of exploration and high speed rail as a ground to test new typologies ...
    • Application of a fully polynomial randomized approximation scheme (FPRAS) to infrastructure system reliability assessments 

      Fu, Bowen; Dueñas-Osorio, Leonardo (2017-08-06)
      Networked systems make the reliability assessment of critical infrastructure computationally challenging given the combinatorial nature of system-level states. Several methods from numerical schemes to analytical approaches, such as Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS) and recursive decomposition algorithms (RDA), respectively, have been applied to this ...
    • Autocorrelation Reflectivity of Mars 

      Deng, Sizhuang; Levander, Alan (2020)
      The seismic structure of the Martian interior can shed light on the formation and dynamic evolution of the planet and our solar system. The deployment of the seismograph carried by the InSight mission provides a means to study Martian internal structure. We used ambient noise autocorrelation to analyze the available vertical component seismic data ...
    • Book review: Grégoire Chamayou, A Theory of the Drone 

      LaFlamme, Marcel; SAGE (2016-11)
    • 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 bismaleimide (BMI) and polyethylene. The knowledge gained from this study will facilitate optimization of the above mentioned ...
    • Complicated Desires: Yto Barrada 

      Hooper, Rachel; Walker Art Center (2007-10-04)
      Artist entry on Yto Barrada in "Brave New Worlds" catalogue
    • Conflict of Employee–Employer Interest: Introducing an Optimal Work Happiness Framework 

      Conlon, Paul M (2012)
      This qualitative study seeks to explore the pursuit and achievement of work happiness for employees. Conflicting interests between organizations (i.e., employers) and employees provide insights into the difficulties employees face in their quest for work happiness. Assumptions are visited concerning constraints on achieving work happiness due to ...
    • 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 theoretical results into feasi- ble schemes with their particular practical challenges. The multiple-input multiple- output (MIMO) ...
    • Demonstration of Piecewise Cubic Polynomial Fitting on Mesoscale Tester Data 

      Grande-Allen, K. Jane; Mehta, Shail Maharshi; De Santos, Diego Ricardo; Sridhar, Shweta; Aguayo, Veronica Cristina; (2020)
      Animation of piecewise cubic polynomial fitting to data from a replicate of 1:15 PDMS performed in order to obtain stress values at exact increments of strain
    • The Dizzident: Lia Perjovschi

    • Induction and Intuition, on the Center for Land Use Interpretation's Metholology 

      Since 1994, The Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI)--a research organization based in Culver City, California--has studied the U.S. landscape, using multidisciplinary research, information processing and interpretive tools to stimulate thought and discussion around contemporary land-use issues. During a residency at the University of Houston ...

    • jsut that way 

      Hooper, Rachel; University of Texas Press and Blaffer Art Museum (2012-09-26)
      Andy Coolquitt makes objects and environments that exist in symbiosis with human relationships. During the 1990s, his life and work revolved around an expansive studio/artist commune/performance space/living sculpture/party place on the east side of Austin, Texas, where he continues to live, work, and host events. Intrigued by social contracts, ...
    • 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 that can faithfully sense the manifold structure and support supervised learning of relevant information from the data. Yet open ...

    • A Lexicon of Suburban Neologisms 

      Hooper, Rachel; Yen, Jayme; Walker Art Center (2008-02-16)
      The suburbs have always been a fertile space for imagining both the best and the worst of modern social life. Portrayed alternately as a middle-class domestic utopia and a dystopic world of homogeneity and conformity--with manicured suburban lawns and the inchoate darkness that lurks just beneath the surface--these stereotypes belie a more realistic ...
