      Sparsity has proven to be an essential ingredient in the development of efficient solutions to a number of problems in signal processing and machine learning. In all of these settings, sparse recovery methods are employed ...
    • Energy Accounting and Optimization for Mobile Systems 

      Dong, Mian (2013-09-16)
      Energy accounting determines how much a software process contributes to the total system energy consumption. It is the foundation for evaluating software and has been widely used by operating system based energy management. ...
    • Engineering Deep Brain Stimulation as a Treatment for Parkinson's Disease: from Models to Materials 

      Summerson, Samantha Rose (2014-04-25)
      This thesis analyzes deep brain stimulation (DBS) as a treatment for the motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) at multiple levels. Although this treatment is currently used on human patients, little is understood ...
    • Enhanced Microlithography Using Combined Phase Shifting and Off-axis Illumination 

      Erdelyi, Miklos; Bor, Zsolt; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Szabo, Gabor; Wilson, William L.; Sengupta, Chaitali; Smayling, Michael C.; Tittel, Frank K. (1995-12-01)
      Off-axis illumination is a promising optical microlithography technique which can be used to improve the image quality of line-space patterns. With this method the image is produced by the zero and first order diffracted ...
    • Enhanced noise at high bias in atomic-scale Au break junctions 

      Chen, Ruoyu; Wheeler, Patrick J.; Di Ventra, M.; Natelson,D. (2014)
      Heating in nanoscale systems driven out of equilibrium is of fundamental importance, has ramifications for technological applications, and is a challenge to characterize experimentally. Prior experiments using nanoscale ...
    • Enhanced Power Efficiency of Mobile OFDM Radio using Pre-distortion and Post-compensation 

      Guo, Yuanbin; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2002-09-20)
      High power efficiency is an important requirement in cellular transmitter radios. OFDM systems require very linear transmission because of high peak-to-average power-ratio (PAPR). However, linear power amplifiers (PA) have ...

    • Enhanced VLSI Manufacturability Using an Integrated CAD Framework 

      Fossati, Humberto M.; Tittel, Frank K.; Wilson, William L.; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (1994-01-01)
      Continued improvements in VLSI performance, circuit density and production costs are possible, in part, do to significant advances in lithography. As feature sizes get smaller, design houses are faced with either improving ...
    • Enhancement of Decompressed Images at Low Bit Rates 

      Gopinath, Ramesh A.; Lang, Markus; Guo, Haitao; Odegard, Jan E. (1994-07-20)
      Transform coding at low bit rates introduces artifacts associated with the basis functions of the transform. For example, decompressed images based on the DCT (discrete cosine transform)- like JPEG<sup>16</sup> - exhibit ...
