A comparison of field programmable gate arrays and digital signal processors in acoustic array processing.
(20060729)The Field Programmable Gate Array's (FPGA) constant growth in computing power has given embedded system developers a choice to replace their current processors with a FPGA. However, most systems continue to use the original ... 
The Complexity of Detecting Symmetric Functions
(20090218)The characterization of the symmetries of boolean functions is important both in automatic layout synthesis, and in automatic verification of manually created layouts. It is possible to characterize the symmetries of an ... 
The Conjugacy Classes of 3x3 and 4x4 Matrices Over GF(2)
(20130920)The general linear groups over GF(2) have an intricate and interesting structure. This report does some preliminary work in examining the structure of two of these groups by giving the conjugacy classes of 3x3 and 4x4 ... 
Conjugates of the Standard Representation of S3 in 3x3 matrices

Connlib
(20091113)This software package can be used to create the FHDL library file. This library allows one to use the FHDL parser and simulator software in your own projects. The package can be compiled either under Linux (i.e. gcc) or ... 
Convective heat transfer from realistic ice roughness distributions.
(, 20130916)As supercooled water droplets impinge the surfaces of inflight aircraft, a layer of accreted ice will form. In the initial stages of the accretion process, the ice will form as a distributed surface roughness. Ice ... 
Converting coconut husks into binderless particle board.
(20090401)Coconuts grow abundantly in tropical regions, and the coconut husk is often discarded as waste. However, a new application has increased interest in developing this previously underutilized resource. Coconut pith has ... 
Data compression application to the MILSTD 1553 avionics data bus.
(20060511)With the current state of legacy military avionic systems reaching its ceiling in memory space, processing power, and databus throughput (bandwidth), a need has arisen to maximize its limited resources to avoid extensive ... 
Deduction by Induction
(20091026)In this report, I offer a technique for computing power sums that is: intuitive, wellmotivated, generalizable to all k, and suitable for presentation to precalculus students. 
Demonstration of a power conditioning system for gridconnected fuel cell power plant.
(, 20130924)This thesis demonstrates a power conditioning system (PCS) for gridconnected hybrid direct fuelcell with turbine (DFC/T) power plant. The PCS is an interface between distributed generation and utility grid. It regulates ... 
Design and experimental testing of smallscale wind turbines.
