OpenMP on networks of workstations
The OpenMP Application Programming Interface (API) is an emerging standard for parallel programming on shared memory architectures. Networks of workstations (NOWs) are attractive parallel programming platforms because of ...
Ultrafast magneto-optical spectroscopy of (III,manganese)V ferromagnetic semiconductors
This thesis describes magneto-optical processes in ferromagnetic (III,Mn)V semiconductors and their heterostructures induced by femtosecond laser pulses. Two-color ultrafast magneto-optical spectroscopy has been developed, ...
Subnet discovery in passive internally sensed network tomography
Passive internally-sensed network tomography is the study of network characteristics and behavior based on observations of network traffic on a select subset of links inside the network. In this research, we identify the ...
Connexions: An architecture for Web-based educational materials
This thesis describes Connexions, a powerful new architecture for managing web-based educational materials. Connexions, consisting of five components, enables course instructors to take advantage of the cross-linked nature ...
Multi-class latency bounded Web services
Two recent advances have resulted in significant improvements in web server quality-of-service. First, both centralized and distributed web servers can provide isolation among service classes by fairly distributing system ...
Joint Source Channel Coding for Discrete Memoryless Channels
The design of optimal joint source/channel coding and decoding is examined for disÂ crete memoryless channels with endÂtoÂend distortion as the criterion for reliable comÂ munication. Joint source/channel encoders ...
Power Issues in Communication Systems
In this work, we are concerned with power efficient communication techniques for wireless mobile devices. In this direction the effects of nonlinear amplifiers in communications systems are first studied, as they tend to ...
Multilevel coding of broadcast video over wirless channels
This paper addresses the problem of broadcasting video over wireless channels. In such a scenario, different end users perceive the video signal through channels with different quality. We propose a source-channel coding ...

Benefits of DSP Extra-curricular Activities: A Look at the Texas Instruments DSP and Analog Challenge
This paper describes the benefits associated with student and faculty participation in DSP design-related activities that fall outside of the usual university course requirements. It will also describe industry's role in ...
