    • Keeping the Analog Genie in the Bottle: A Case for Digital Robots 

      Walker, Ian D.; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Leuschen, Martin L. (1999-05-01)
      In this paper, we consider the case for adopting a truly 'digital' type of robot, which would evolve between a discrete and finite set of states. We adopt the point of view that the advantages of traditional robotic evolution ...
    • L(P) DECONVOLUTION IN NON-GAUSSIAN NOISE

    • L(p)-approximation by the iteratively reweighted least squares method and the design of digital FIR filters in one dimension 

      Barreto, Jose Antonio (1993)
      In this thesis a new and simple to program approach is proposed in order to obtain an $L\sb{p}$ approximation, 2 $<$ p $<$ $\infty$, based on the Iteratively Reweighted Least Squares (IRLS) method, for designing a linear ...

      Aneshansley, Daniel J.; Pottle, Christopher; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (1985-06-01)
      Computers, configured for data acquisition and control, have been used in undergraduate laboratories at Cornell University's School of Electrical Engineering since the early 1970s. The introduction of personal computers ...
    • Lagrange rational interpolation and its applications to approximation of large-scale dynamical systems 

      Ionita, Antonio (2013-11-06)
      We present several new, efficient algorithms that extract low complexity models from frequency response measurements of large-scale dynamical systems. Our work is motivated by the fact that, in many applications, analytical ...

    • LASER PROCESSING OF SEMICONDUCTORS 

      KWONG, DIM-LEE (1982)
      The great potential for advancing the state of the art in fabrication of semiconductor devices and integrated circuits with the use of laser beam processing techniques is reviewed. The unique characteristics of this novel ...
    • Laser spectroscopic trace chemical sensors for environmental sensor networks and portable medical devices 

      So, Stephen G. (2008)
      This thesis represents the development of the first laser spectroscopy based trace-gas sensors with sensor characteristics which simultaneously satisfy low cost, handheld footprint, low power, and long term autonomous ...
    • Laser-assisted metalorganic chemical vapor deposition of zinc selenide 

      Shinn, Gregory B. (1992)
      Laser-assisted metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (LMOCVD) has been used to grow epitaxial zinc selenide at temperatures as low as 200$\sp\circ$C. The metalorganic sources, dimethylzinc (DMZ) and diethylselenide (DESe), ...
    • Laser-assisted metalorganic chemical vapor deposition of zinc sulfide 

      Stokes, Scott Wilson (1997)
      Laser-assisted metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) was used to grow crystalline zinc sulfide at temperatures as low as 200$\sp\circ$C. The metalorganic sources, dimethylzinc and diethylsulfide, were photodissociated ...
    • Lattice Algorithms for Compression Color Space Estimation in JPEG Images 

      Neelamani, Ramesh; de Queiroz, Ricardo; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2001-08-01)
      JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) is an international standard to compress and store digital color images [5]. Given a color image that was previously JPEG-compressed in some hidden color space, we aim to estimate ...
    • Layered Dynamic Fault Detection and Tolerance for Robots 

      Visinsky, Monica L.; Walker, Ian D.; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (1993-05-01)
      Fault tolerance is increasingly important for space and hazardous environment robotics. Robots need to quickly detect and tolerate internal failures in order to continue performing their tasks without the need for immediate ...
    • LDPC Code Design for Half-Duplex Decode-and-Forward Relaying 

      Chakrabarti, Arnab; de Baynast, Alexandre; Sabharwal, Ashutosh; Aazhang, Behnaam (2005-09-01)
      We propose LDPC code designs for the half-duplex relay channel. Our designs mimic the information theoretic random coding scheme for decode-and-forward relaying. An important advantage of our scheme is that it is built ...

      de Baynast, Alexandre; Sabharwal, Ashutosh; Aazhang, Behnaam (2005-07-01)
      We present an optimized channel coding scheme for OFDM transmission. In the future wireless standards such IEEE 802.11n, frame error rates (FER) as low as 0.0001 are targeting. Irregular LDPC codes have excellent performance ...

      We address the problem of LDPC code design for relay channel in time-division mode based on a distributed strategy: In the first time slot, the source transmits part of the codeword. The relay and the destination receive ...
