Modeling and design of carbon nanotube interconnect for mixed-signal VLSI applications
In future nanoscale integrated circuits, process technology scaling coupled with increasing operating frequencies will exacerbate the resistivity, electromigration, and delay problems that plague interconnect in today's ...
This thesis is broadly concerned with the following problem: given frequency response measurements construct a linear time-invariant system that is consistent with these measurements. This problem arises, for example, in ...
On the capacity of multihop wireless networks: Fundamental limitations and efficient algorithms
Wireless networks are rapidly becoming a major component of the modern communications infrastructure competing with wireline networking. The and of this thesis is to study the capacity, fundamental limitations, and the ...
Sequential quantization for classification : the impact of structure and nonparametric estimates
Sequential quantization is a constrained quantization method in which elements of a real-valued vector are sequentially mapped (quantized) onto a finite set. These quantization systems are constrained in that they are not ...
Passivity preserving model reduction in the context of spectral zero interpolation
This thesis presents a new passivity preserving model reduction method for circuit simulation, based on interpolation of dominant spectral zeros. Implemented as an eigenvalue approximation problem, the dominant spectral ...
Recursive identification and model reduction from time domain data
In a system theoretic setting, identification from time domain data can be viewed as interpolating derivatives of a rational function. Typically, rational interpolation of derivatives requires computing the singular value ...
