Analytical performance prediction of parallel systems
The need for more computing power for many computer applications has increased beyond the capabilities of traditional von Neumann architectures. This has generated interest in using parallel computers to improve processing ...
Towards a behavioral approach to linear approximate modeling
In this thesis, the foundations for the development of a behavioral approach to linear approximate modeling, are established. A particular data set, consisting of stable, discrete-time, purely exponential time series and ...
Statistical system identification of structures using ARMA models
The present study focuses on the estimation of the modal properties, i.e., natural modal frequencies, modal damping ratios, and mode shapes, of a structural system under ambient vibration based on the response data of the ...
Performance of multicomputers using high-speed communication links
This thesis presents the results of a simulation study of the performance of a message-passing multicomputer using high-speed point-to-point communication links. The multicomputer system consists of IBM RS/6000 machines ...
Synchronization, coherence, and consistency for high performance shared memory multiprocessing
Although improved device technology has increased the performance of computer systems, fundamental hardware limitations and the need to build faster systems using existing technology have led many computer system designers ...
A geometry for detection theory
The optimal detector for a binary detection problem under a variety of criteria is the likelihood ratio test. Despite this simple characterization of the detector, analytic performance analysis in most cases is difficult ...
