    • Building Incentives into Tor 

      Dingledine, Roger; Ngan, Tsuen-Wan "Johnny"; Wallach, Dan S. (2008-11-12)
      Distributed anonymous communication networks like Tor depend on volunteers to donate their resources. However, the efforts of Tor volunteers have not grown as fast as the demands on the Tor network. We explore techniques ...
    • Bursting, beating, and chaotic modes in mathematical models of the R15 cell in Aplysia 

      Canavier, Carmen Castro (1989)
      Chaotic regimes have been observed experimentally in neurons as well as in deterministic neuronal models. The bursting R15 cell in the abdominal ganglion of Aplysia has been the subject of extensive mathematical modeling. ...
    • C++.T Formalization in Isar 

      Siek, Jeremy G.; Taha, Walid (2005-12-16)
      A formal account of C++ templates, including the compile-time and run-time semantics. The main result is a proof of type safety. The proof is written in the Isar proof language and can be mechanically verified using the ...
    • Cache Coherence Using Local Knowledge 

      Darnell, Ervan (1995-04-01)
      Hiding memory latency is critical in modern machines. Typically, machines have used cache and addressed the ensuing cache coherence problem with hardware or VM-based strategies that rely on global inter-cache communicati ...
    • Cache management in scalable network servers 

      Pai, Vivek Sadananda (2000)
      For many users, the perceived speed of computing is increasingly dependent on the performance of network server systems, underscoring the need for high performance servers. Cost-effective scalable network servers can be ...

      Pai, Vivek (2000-07-13)
      For many users, the perceived speed of computing is increasingly dependent on the performance of network server systems, underscoring the need for high performance servers. Cost-effective scalable network servers can be ...
    • Can complex systems really be simulated? 

      Kalmar-Nagy, Tamas; Stanciulescu, Ilinca (2014)
      The simulation of complex systems is important in many fields of science and in real-world applications. Such systems are composed of many interacting subsystems. There might exist different software packages for simulating ...
    • Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts Induce a Collagen Cross-link Switch in Tumor Stroma 

      Pankova, Daniela; Chen, Yulong; Terajima, Masahiko; Schliekelman, Mark J.; Baird, Brandi N.; Fahrenholtz, Monica; Sun, Li; Gill, Bartley J.; Vadakkan, Tegy J.; Kim, Min P.; Ahn, Young-Ho; Roybal, Jonathon D.; Liu, Xin; Cuentas, Edwin Roger Parra; Rodriguez, Jaime; Wistuba, Ignacio I.; Creighton, Chad J.; Gibbons, Don L.; Hicks, John M.; Dickinson, Mary E.; West, Jennifer L.; Grande-Allen, K. Jane; Hanash, Samir M.; Yamauchi, Mitsuo; Kurie, Jonathan M. (2016)
      Intratumoral collagen cross-links heighten stromal stiffness and stimulate tumor cell invasion, but it is unclear how collagen cross-linking is regulated in epithelial tumors. To address this question, we used KrasLA1 mice, ...
    • A Canonical Covariance Based Method for Generalized Joint Signal Representations 

      Jones, Douglas L.; Sayeed, Akbar M. (1996-04-20)
      Generalized joint signal representations extend the scope of joint time-frequency representations to a richer class of nonstationary signals. Cohen's marginal-based generalized approach is canonical from a distributional ...
    • The Capacity of Average and Peak Power Constrained Fading Channels with Channel Side Information 

      Khojastepour, Mohammad; Aazhang, Behnaam (2004-03-01)
      We derive the ergodic capacity of discrete-time fading channel with additive Gaussian noise subject to both peak and average power constraint. The average power can be interpreted as the cost that we incur to achieve a ...
    • Capacity of low power multiuser systems with antenna arrays 

      Muharemovic, Tarik (2005)
      In this thesis, we study wireless multiuser communication systems in the regime of low spectral efficiencies, where users and the multiple access point are equipped with antenna arrays. Our first contribution is to develop ...
    • CAPE - VLSI Implementation of a Systolic Processor Array: Architecture, Design and Testing 

      Hemkumar, Nariankadu D.; Kota, Kishore; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (1991-06-20)
      The SVD is an important matrix decomposition in many real-time signal processing, image processing and robotics applications. Special-purpose processor arrays can achieve significant speed-up over conventioinal architectures ...
    • Carbon nanotube fiber terahertz polarizer 

      Zubair, Ahmed; Tsentalovich, Dmitri E.; Young, Colin C.; Heimbeck, Martin S.; Everitt, Henry O.; Pasquali, Matteo; Kono, Junichiro (2016)
      Conventional, commercially available terahertz (THz) polarizers are made of uniformly and precisely spaced metallic wires. They are fragile and expensive, with performance characteristics highly reliant on wire diameters ...
