Accelerating path planning algorithms with high level synthesis tools and FPGAs.
(, 20130515)Accelerating path planning algorithms with field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) allows the designer to achieve significant performance increases over using a traditional central processing unit (CPU). Converting an ... 
Adaptive load impedance optimization for power amplifiers in reconfigurable radar transmitters.
(, 20130515)A fundamental tradeoff exists in radar transmitter design between linearity and efficiency due to the signal amplification. These transmitters are driven into saturation in order to increase efficiency, but may potentially ... 
Aerodynamic design considerations for smallscale, fixedpitch, horizontalaxis wind turbines operating in class 2 winds.
(, 20120808)Renewable sources of energy, such as wind, are necessary to meet the growing demand as conventional energy sources are depleted. Very little research has been accomplished to improve wind turbine performance in Class 2 ... 
Age classification from facial images for detecting retinoblastoma.
(, 20121129)Facial age estimation from images is a difficult problem, both because it is naturally difficult to tell the exact age of a person visually, and because of the variations in images, such as illumination, pose, and expression. ... 
Algorithmic specified complexity.
(, 20130924)Information theory is a well developed field, but does not capture the essence of what information is. Shannon Information captures something in its definition of improbability as information. But not all improbable ... 
Analysis of transaction throughput in P2P environments.
(20060528)In recent years P2P systems have gained tremendous popularity. Support of a transaction processing facility in P2P systems would provide databases at a low cost. Extending distributed database algorithms such as 2PC and ... 
AntiSymmetry and Logic Simulation
(20120119)Like ordinary symmetries, antisymmetries are defined in terms of relations between function cofactors. For ordinary symmetries, two cofactors must be equal, for antisymmetries two cofactors must be complements of ... 
AN APPLICATION OF GROUP THEORY TO THE ANALYSIS OF SYMMETRIC GATES
(20091026)A method for determining the symmetries of the inputs of a logic gate either from its truth table or from facts obtained by inspection of its circuit is presented. The symmetry rule of a gate with n inputs is defined in ... 
Applying mass and energy balances to model series and parallel fanpowered terminal units.
(20150731)Performance data from four manufacturers of fanpowered terminal units was analyzed and simple models of the fan/motor power use developed. These data included two fan motors: permanent split capacitor motors with silicon ... 
Bootstrapping Bipartite Graphs Consisting of Edges Based on Ontology Terms Occurring in Scientific Abstract
(20110513)The Ontological Discovery Environment (ODE) provides an efficient structure for storage of gene and pheno type relations. The relations can be represented by a bipartite graph, where the gene and phenotype items can be ... 
Calibration methodology for a microwave noninvasive glucose sensor.
(20080609)Noninvasive measuring techniques for determining biological parameters are more heavily researched with the growth of the biomedical industry. One of the top areas in noninvasive research deals with diabetes. This ... 
Categories for Component Level Design
(20090218)Several research problems are discussed, including communication mechanisms and the interface between components and the glue logic used to tie them together. A technique for engineering new componentlevel applications ...
