• #### Taking TrackBack Back (from Spam) ﻿

(2006-05-19)
The TrackBack protocol, conceived as a way to automatically link together web sites which reference one another, has become a new vector for spammers wishing to divert web surfers to their sites. A site which supports ...
• #### Targeting the Src Homology 2 (SH2) Domain of Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription 6 (STAT6) with Cell-Permeable, Phosphatase-Stable Phosphopeptide Mimics Potently Inhibits Tyr641 Phosphorylation and Transcriptional Activity ﻿

(2015)
Signal transducer and activator of transcription 6 (STAT6) transmits signals from cytokines IL-4 and IL-13 and is activated in allergic airway disease. We are developing phosphopeptide mimetics targeting the SH2 domain of ...
• #### TCP Implementation Enhancements for Improving Webserver Performance ﻿

(1999-07-06)
This paper studies the performance of BSD-based TCP implementations in Web servers. We find that lack of scalability with respect to high TCP connection rates reduces the throughput of Web servers by up to 25% and imposes ...
• #### TCP: Improving Startup Dynamics by Adaptive Timers and Congestion Control ﻿

(1998-06-03)
This paper studies the startup dynamics of TCP on both high as well as low bandwidth-delay network paths and proposes a set of enhancements that improve both the latency as well as throughput of relatively short TCP ...
• #### Techniques for Efficient Cell-Level ATM Simulations ﻿

(2000-02)
This paper investigates the efficiency of a network simulator in simulating ATM networks with UBR service and compares it to the the efficiency of simulating conventional packet networks. A network simulator can be highly ...
• #### Telescoping MATLAB for DSP Applications ﻿

(2003-12-05)
This dissertation designs and implements a prototype MATLAB compiler for Digital Signal Processing (DSP) libraries, based on a novel approach called telescoping languages for compiling high-level languages. The thesis of ...
• #### Terahertz and Infrared Spectroscopy of Gated Large-Area Graphene ﻿

(2012)
We have fabricated a centimeter-size single-layer graphene device with a gate electrode, which can modulate the transmission of terahertz and infrared waves. Using time-domain terahertz spectroscopy and Fourier-transform ...
• #### Termination in Language-Based Systems ﻿

(2000-08-08)
Language runtime systems are increasingly being embedded in systems to support runtime extensibility via mobile code. Such systems raise a number of concerns when the code running in such systems is potentially buggy or ...
• #### The Block Structure of Three Dixon Resultants and Their Accompanying Transformation Matrices ﻿

(1999-06-16)
Dixon [1908] introduces three distinct determinant formulations for the resultant of three bivariate polynomials of bidegree (m,n) . The first technique applies Sylvester's dialytic method to construct the resultant as the ...
• #### The Concurrent Collections Programming Model ﻿

(2010-12-16)
Parallel computing has become firmly established since the 1980’s as the primary means of achieving high performance from supercomputers. 1 Concurrent Collections (CnC) was developed to address the need for making parallel ...
• #### The Concurrent Collections Programming Model ﻿

(2010-01-04)
We introduce the Concurrent Collections (CnC) programming model. In this model, programs are written in terms of high-level operations. These operations are partially ordered according to only their semantic constraints. ...
• #### The Effect of Deceptive Idleness on Disk Schedulers ﻿

(2001-06-19)
Disk schedulers in operating systems are generally work-conserving; they schedule a request immediately after the previous request has finished. Such schedulers need multiple outstanding requests to make good decisions. ...
• #### The Formal Relationship between Direct and Continuation-Passing Style Optimizing Compilers: A Synthesis of Two Paradigms ﻿

(1994-08)
Compilers for higher-order programming languages like Scheme, ML, and Lisp can be broadly characterized as either “direct compilers” or "continuation-passing style (CPS) compilers", depending on their main intermediate ...
• #### The List Update ProblemImproved Bounds for the Counter Scheme ﻿

(1998-02-02)
We consider the problem of dynamic reorganization of a linear list, where requests for the elements are generated randomly with fixed, unknown probabilities. The objective is to obtain the smallest expected cost per access. ...
• #### The Maximum of a Random Walk and Its Application to Rectangle Packing ﻿

(1997-07-28)
Let S0,...,Sn be a symmetric random walk that starts at the origin (S0 = 0), and takes steps uniformly distributed on [-1,+1]. We study the large-n behavior of the expected maximum excursion and prove the estimate \exd ...
• #### The Platform-Aware Compilation Environment: Preliminary Design Document ﻿

(2010-09-15)
The Platform-Aware Compilation Environment (PACE) is an ambitious attempt to construct a portable compiler that produces code capable of achieving high levels of performance on new architectures. The key strategies in PACE ...
• #### The Platform-Aware Compilation Environment: Status and Future Directions ﻿

(2012-06-13)
The Platform-Aware Compilation Environment (PACE) is an ambitious attempt to construct a portable compiler that produces code capable of achieving high levels of performance on new architectures. The key strategies in PACE ...
• #### The Preliminary Design and Implementation of the Maestro Network Control Platform ﻿

(2008-10-01)
Network operation is inherently complex because it consists of many functions such as routing, firewalling, VPN provisioning, traffic load-balancing, network maintenance, etc. To cope with this, network designers have ...
• #### The Semantics of Futures ﻿

(1994-10)
The future annotation introduced by MultiLisp provides a simple method for taming the implicit parallelism of functional programs. Prior research on futures has concentrated on implementation and design issues, and has ...
• #### The Task Motion Kit ﻿

(2016-10-31)
Expanding the capabilities of robots to achieve complex objectives in new environments requires novel reasoning systems. Everyday tasks in the physical world, such as the table setting in Fig. 1, couple discrete decisions ...
