Matrix Representations of GF(p[superscript n]) over GF(p)
(20140131)We show that any nonsingular nxn matrix of order p[superscript n]1 over GF(p) is a generator of a matrix representation of GF(p[superscript n]). We also determine the number of matrix representations of GF(p[superscript ... 
Metamorphic programming
(20090415)Metamorphic programming is an effective tool for creating efficient and elegant solutions to many programming problems, at least once you get over the shock of seeing code that violates many of the accepted rules of good ... 
MKWHAT: A CompilerDevelopment Tool for Fast Keyword Recognition
(20091113)Although compiler keywords can be recognized directly in LEX (or flex) these tools are rather slow. MKWHAT is a tool that can be used to generate a keyword recognizer that will recognize key words using a minimal number ... 
Modeling of flexible fiber motion and prediction of material properties.
(, 20110914)This work employs the rod chain model of Wang et al. (2006) to study the motion of discrete flexible fibers. Results are presented for both individual fibers and a stochastic distribution of fibers to study the variations ... 
Models for rested touchless gestural interaction.
(20150731)Touchless midair gestural interaction has gained mainstream attention with the emergence of offtheshelf commodity devices such as the Leap Motion and the Xbox Kinect. One of the issues with this form of interaction is ... 
MovieOracle System
(20110913)The detailed design document covers the basic theory, related technique, and implementation details of the MovieOracle system. It first provides a highlevel system overview. Then it discusses the usage of Twitter API, ... 
MultiKarma : a fully decentralized virtual multicurrency.
(, 20110914)Participantbased technologies enable users to contribute resources to a shared pool that in the aggregate provides valuable services, such as social networks, massive multiplayer online games, file exchange, etc. Such ... 
A new modality for microwave tomographic maging: transit time tomography.
(20060722)A new method for tomographic imaging using time delay of microwaves as they pass through objects of varying dielectric is presented. To obtain this delay measurement, recording of transmitted waveforms is performed when ... 
Nondeterministic modeling of the bulk thermal and electrical conductivity for dense thin film carbon nanotube networks.
(20110512)Thin films composed of singlewalled carbon nanotubes, enjoy very high thermal and electrical conductivities, well beyond that of polymer matrix composites, and are very light in weight. Before these materials can experience ... 
The Number of Conjugates of the Standard Representation of Sn in the General Linear Group over GF(2)
(20130920)This report determines the normalizer of the standard representation of Sn in the general linear group of nxn matrices over GF(2). The size of the normalizer is then used to determine the number of classes of conjugate ... 
Numerical prediction and correlation of leading edge jet impingement with varying jet shapes and flow conditions for gas turbine cooling.
(, 20130924)To increase the core power of gas turbine engines, the combustion temperature is elevated above the metallurgical limits of the internal components. As a consequence, active cooling schemes are required to prevent the ... 
An OCLbased verification approach to analyzing static properties of a UML model.
(20100623)There is a need for more rigorous analysis techniques that developers can use for verifying the critical properties in UML models. The UMLbased Specification Environment (USE) tool supports verification of invariants, ... 
Optimization of muscle physiological parameters for a computer model of the human shoulder girdle.
(20110512)The shoulder girdle serves as the platform for all human upper extremity movement and plays an integral role in providing the large range of motion of the shoulder joint. However, computer models representing human ... 
Optimizing multiagent dynamics for underwater tactical applications.
(20110512)Large groups of autonomous agents, or swarms, can exhibit complex emergent behaviors that are difficult to predict and characterize from their lowlevel interactions. These emergent behaviors can have hidden implications ...

Performance improvements to peertopeer file transfers using network coding.
(, 20130916)A common peertopeer approach to large data distribution is to divide the data into blocks. Peers will gather blocks from other peers in parallel. Problems with this approach are that each peer must know which blocks ... 
PGmeans: learning the number of clusters in data.
(20070319)We present a novel algorithm called PGmeans in this thesis. This algorithm is able to determine the number of clusters in a classical Gaussian mixture model automatically. PGmeans uses efficient statistical hypothesis ...
