    • Equivalence of Generalized Joint Signal Representations of Arbitrary Variables 

      Sayeed, Akbar M.; Jones, Douglas L. (1996-12-20)
      Joint signal representations (JSRs) of arbitrary variables generalize time-frequency representations (TFRs) to a much broader class of nonstationary signal characteristics. Two main distributional approaches to JSRs of ...
    • The Equivalent Circuit Concept: The Current-Source Equivalent 

      Johnson, Don (2003-05-20)
      The equivalent circuit concept derives from the Superposition Principle and Ohm's Law. Two forms of the equivalent circuit, the Thevenin equivalent and the Norton equivalent, distill any linear circuit into a source and ...
    • Error control for support vector machines 

      Davenport, Mark A. (2007)
      In binary classification there are two types of errors, and in many applications these may have very different costs. We consider two learning frameworks that address this issue: minimax classification, where we seek to ...
    • ESD circuit synthesis and analysis using TCAD and SPICE 

      Rodriguez, Juan Antonio (1999)
      This thesis describes the development of a SPICE sub-circuit model for an avalanche triggered SCR used for ESD protection in integrated circuits. The purpose of this work was to develop a model that accurately predicts the ...
    • Estimation-Quantization Geometry Coding Using Normal Meshes 

      Lavu, Sridhar; Choi, Hyeokho; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2003-03-01)
      We propose a new algorithm for compressing three-dimensional triangular mesh data used for representing surfaces. We apply the Estimation-Quantization (EQ) algorithm originally designed for still image compression to the ...
    • Evaluating Multihop Mobile Wireless Networks with Controllable Node Sparsity or Density 

      Amiri, Keyvan (2015-12-04)
      Simulation is the most widely used tool for evaluating the performance of multihop mobile wireless networks, yet such simulation has so far been limited due to the lack of sufficient wireless mobility models for creating ...
    • Evaluating the reliability of prototype degradable systems 

      Leuschen, Martin L.; Walker, Ian D.; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2001-04-01)
      The technique introduced in this paper is a new technique for analyzing fault tolerant designs under considerable uncertainty, such as seen in unique or few-of-a-kind devices in poorly known environments or pre-prototype ...

      Spicer, Patrick P.; Shah, Sarita R.; Henslee, Allan M.; Watson, Brendan M.; Kinard, Lucas A.; Kretlow, James D.; Bevil, Kristin; Kattchee, Lauren; Bennett, George N.; Demian, Nagi; Mende, Katrin; Murray, Clinton K.; Jansen, John A.; Wong, Mark E.; Mikos, Antonios G.; Kasper, F. Kurtis (2013-11)
      This study evaluated the in vitro and in vivo performance of antibiotic-releasing porous polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)-based space maintainers comprising a gelatin hydrogel porogen and a poly(DL-lactic-co-glycolic acid) ...
    • Evaluation of Bone Regeneration Using the Rat Critical Size Calvarial Defect 

      Spicer, Patrick P.; Kretlow, James D.; Young, Simon; Jansen, John A.; Kasper, F. Kurtis; Mikos, Antonios G. (2012-10)
      Animal models that are reliably reproducible, appropriate analogues to the clinical condition they are used to investigate, and that offer minimal morbidity and periprocedural mortality to the subject are the keystone ...
    • Evaluation of Endothelial Cells Differentiated from Amniotic Fluid-Derived Stem Cells 

      Benavides, Omar M.; Petsche, Jennifer J.; Moise, Kenneth J. Jr; Johnson, Anthony; Jacot, Jeffrey G. (2012)
      Amniotic fluid holds great promise as a stem cell source, especially in neonatal applications where autologous cells can be isolated and used. This study examined chemical-mediated differentiation of amniotic fluid-derived stem ...
    • An Evaluation of Memory Consistency Models for Shared-Memory Systems with ILP Processors 

      Pai, Vijay S.; Ranganathan, Parthasarathy; Adve, Sarita V.; Harton, Tracy (1996-10-20)
      None
    • An Evaluation of Methods for Inferring Boolean Networks from Time-Series Data 

      Berestovsky, Natalie; Nakhleh, Luay (2013-06-21)
      Regulatory networks play a central role in cellular behavior and decision making. Learning these regulatory networks is a major task in biology, and devising computational methods and mathematical models for this task is ...
    • Evidence for nuclear internalisation of biocompatible [60]fullerene1) 

      Huang, Feiran; Mackeyev, Yuri; Watson, Erin; Cheney, Matthew A.; Wilson, Lon J.; Suh, Junghae (2013)
      Many types of nanoparticles (NPs) have been shown to internalise within mammalian cells (1), but only a few have been observed to internalise within the cell nucleus-most likely due to the tightly-regulated nuclear membrane ...

      Zhu, Yun; Lin, Zhenguo; Nakhleh, Luay (2013-09-18)
      Gene duplication plays an important role in the evolution of genomes and interactomes. Elucidating how evolution after gene duplication interplays at the sequence and network level is of great interest. In this paper, ...

      Fang, Zheyu; Zhen, Yu-Rong; Neumann, Oara; Polman, Albert; de Abajo, F. Javier García; Nordlander, Peter; Halas, Naomi J. (2013)
      When an Au nanoparticle in a liquid medium is illuminated with resonant light of sufficient intensity, a nanometer scale envelope of vapor -a “nanobubble”- surrounding the particle, is formed. This is the nanoscale onset ...
