Application of diode-laser-pumped difference-frequency generation to spectroscopic trace gas detection in the atmosphere
The application of diode-laser-pumped tunable IR sources to trace gas detection in air is discussed. The design and technology issues of CW tunable mid-infrared difference-frequency generation are addressed. Feasibility ...
Theory and applications of the shift-invariant, time-varying and undecimated wavelet transforms
In this thesis, we generalize the classical discrete wavelet transform, and construct wavelet transforms that are shift-invariant, time-varying, undecimated, and signal dependent. The result is a set of powerful and efficient ...
Message passing versus distributed shared memory on networks of workstations
We compared the message passing library Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM) with the distributed shared memory system TreadMarks, on networks of workstations. We presented the performance of nine applications, including Water ...
An electrodiffusion model of conduction in nerve fibers
A new membrane model for mammalian nerve fibers has been developed. The membrane model utilizes new characterizations for delayed-rectifier currents, and adds an inwardly-rectifying potassium channel as well as a ...
Genetic algorithm tuning of a fuzzy logic controller for a dynamic system
This thesis describes the use of the genetic algorithm to facilitate the design process of a fuzzy logic based controller. The basic mechanics of both the fuzzy logic control system and the genetic algorithm are presented ...
