Contextualizing Science Education via Earth System Science Events for Meaningful Lifelong Learning
The widespread deployment of ubiquitous communication technologies, including growing Internet access, in the early 21st century has resulted in a growing number of information sources available for educational purposes. These online information sources contribute to an educational landscape increasingly capable of near real-time access to ...
Digital Libraries & Desktops: How Users View & Use Digital Libraries in Relation to their Own Private Collections
This dissertation will study the interaction between frequent users and the digital libraries they regularly visit, specifically to gain a greater understanding of the factors which underly users’ decision-making with regard to the storage of digital library items in their private information collections. An important component of this will be ...
Communication and Storage of Data for Personal Libraries
This research proposes personal digital libraries by investigating design elements that should be considered in the creation of a distributed digital object store for a personal library system. Particular emphasis is placed in the storage scalability and communication demands imposed by personal libraries
Compact Hardware Accelerator for Functional Verification and Rapid Prototyping of 4G Wireless Communication Systems
In this paper, we propose an FPGA-based hardware accelerator platform with Xilinx Virtex-II V3000 in a compact PCMCIA form factor. By partitioning the complex algorithms in the 4G simulator to the hardware accelerator, we apply an efficient Catapult-C methodology to quickly evaluate the area/speed tradeoffs and rapidly schedule synthesizable ...
Real-Time Algorithms and Architectures for Multiuser Channel Estimation and Detection in Wireless Base-Station Receivers
This paper presents alogrithms and architecture designs that can meet real-time requirements of multiuser channel estimation and detection in future wireless base-station receivers. Sophisticated algorithms proposed to implement multiuser channel estimation and detection make their real-time implementation difficult on current Digital Signal Processor ...
