  • Performance improvements to peer-to-peer file transfers using network coding. 

    Kelley, Aaron A. (, 2013-09-16)
    A common peer-to-peer 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 ...
  • PG-means: learning the number of clusters in data. 

    Feng, Yu. (2007-03-19)
    We present a novel algorithm called PG-means in this thesis. This algorithm is able to determine the number of clusters in a classical Gaussian mixture model automatically. PG-means uses efficient statistical hypothesis ...
  • Studies of active information in search. 

    Ewert, Winston. (2010)
    A search process is an attempt to locate a solution to a problem, such as an optimization problem, where the space is usually too large to exhaustively sample. In order to investigate this idea this work looks a three ...
  • "Two-way" obliviousness in general aspect-oriented modeling. 

    Roberts, Nathan V. (2008-10-01)
    A key problem in software development is producing systems that are maintainable even as the concerns at play evolve. Aspect-oriented programming (AOP) seeks to foster maintainability by isolating the specifications of ...
