    • Molecular Plasmonics: Graphene Plasmons in the Picoscale Limit 

      Lauchner, Adam (2015-08-20)
      Doped graphene supports surface plasmons in the mid- to far-infrared that are both electrically and spatially tunable. Graphene has been shown to enable greater spatial confinement of the plasmon and fewer losses than ...
    • Molecular theory for the phase equilibria and cluster distribution of associating fluids with small bond angles 

      Marshall, Bennett D.; Chapman, Walter G. (2013-08-02)
      We develop a new theory for associating fluids with multiple association sites. The theory accounts for small bond angle effects such as steric hindrance, ring formation, and double bonding. The theory is validated against ...
    • Moments and Error Expressions in Polynomial Minimum Mean Square Estimation 

      Kazakos, D.; Papantoni-Kazakos, P. (1975-05-20)
      The mathematical complexity of the minimum mean square estimators made inevitable the consideration of suboptimal solutions, such as the linear minimum mean square estimators. The compromise between performance and ...
    • Moments, smoothness and optimization of wavelet systems 

      Odegard, Jan Erik (1996)
      This dissertation develops several new results on wavelet design using both traditional and new optimization criteria. We consider three different design problems: two problems address explicit optimization of function ...
    • Monitoring and Diagnostics for a Hydraulic Robot in Hazardous Environments 

      Leuschen, Martin L.; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Walker, Ian D. (1999-04-01)
      Hazardous environments are an important application of modern robotic techniques. However, failures can be quite serious in such environments, especially if they trap the robot within or damage containment efforts. Thus ...
    • A Monte Carlo density functional theory for the competition between inter and intramolecular association in inhomogeneous fluids 

      Marshall, Bennett D.; García-Cuéllar, Alejandro J.; Chapman, Walter G. (2013-05-30)
      A Monte Carlo density functional theory is developed for chain molecules which both intra and intermolecularly associate. The approach can be applied over a range of chain lengths. The theory is validated for the case ...
    • MoodScope: Building a Mood Sensor from Smartphone Usage Patterns 

      Li Kam Wa, Robert (2012-09-05)
      MoodScope is a first-of-its-kind smartphone software system that learns the mood of its user based on how the smartphone is used. While commonly available sensors on smartphones measure physical properties, MoodScope is a ...
    • Motion-corrected treadmill nuclear angiography 

      Sun, Liang (2003)
      First-pass radionuclide angiography (RNA) of the human heart is performed during peak treadmill exercise using a Multiwire Gamma Camera (MWGC) and an intravenous injection of ultra-short-lived radionuclide Tantalum-178. ...
    • MU-MIMO WLANs in Diverse Bands and Environments 

      Anand, Narendra (2015-04-24)
      Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) is a precoding technique that allows for an Access Point (AP) to transmit data to multiple receivers in parallel resulting in an overall capacity increase. However, achieving these gains requires ...
    • Multi-class latency bounded Web services 

      Kanodia, Vikram (2000)
      Two recent advances have resulted in significant improvements in web server quality-of-service. First, both centralized and distributed web servers can provide isolation among service classes by fairly distributing system ...
    • Multi-class Latency Bounded Web Services 

      Kanodia, Vikram (2000-11-20)
      Two recent advances have resulted in significant improvements in web server quality-of-service. First, both centralized and distributed web servers can provide isolation among service classes by fairly distributing system ...
    • Multi-endpoint, High-Throughput Study of Nanomaterial Toxicity in Caenorhabditis elegans 

      Jung, Sang-Kyu; Qu, Xiaolei; Aleman-Meza, Boanerges; Wang, Tianxiao; Riepe, Celeste; Liu, Zheng; Li, Qilin; Zhong, Weiwei (2015)
      The booming nanotechnology industry has raised public concerns about the environmental health and safety impact of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs). High-throughput assays are needed to obtain toxicity data for the rapidly ...
    • Multi-Layer Parallel Decoding Algorithm and VLSI Architecture for Quasi-Cyclic LDPC Codes 

      Sun, Yang; Wang, Guohui; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2011-05-01)
      We propose a multi-layer parallel decoding algorithm and VLSI architecture for decoding of structured quasi-cyclic low-density parity-check codes. In the conventional layered decoding algorithm, the block-rows of the parity ...
    • Multi-Rate High-Throughput LDPC Decoder: Tradeoff Analysis between Decoding Throughput and Area 

      Radosavljevic, Predrag; de Baynast, Alexandre; Karkooti, Marjan; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2006-09-01)
      In order to achieve high decoding throughput (hundreds of MBits/sec and above) for multiple code rates and moderate codeword lengths (up to 2.5K bits), several decoder solutions with different levels of processing parallelism ...
    • Multi-tier caching of dynamic content for database-driven Web sites 

      Rajamani, Karthick (2002)
      Web sites have gradually shifted from delivering just static html pages and images to customized, user-specific content and plethora of online services. The new features and facilities are made possible by dynamic content ...
    • Multicanonical molecular dynamics by variable-temperature thermostats and variable-pressure barostats 

      Zhang, Cheng; Deem, Michael W. (2013)
      Sampling from flat energy or density distributions has proven useful in equilibrating complex systems with large energy barriers. Several thermostats and barostats are presented to sample these flat distributions by ...

      Ribeiro, Vinay Joseph; Coates, Mark J.; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Sarvotham, Shriram; Hendricks, Brent; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2000-09-01)
      In this paper we develop a novel model-based technique, the Delphi algorithm, for inferring the instantaneous volume of competing cross-traffic across an end-to-end path. By using only end-to-end measurements, Delphi avoids ...
    • Multifractal Formalism for Infinite Multinomial Measures 

      Riedi, Rudolf H.; Mandelbrot, Benoit (1995-01-20)
