  • Zhao, Rongkai; Gabriel, Michael; Belford, Geneva G. (2004-01)
    3D neuro-anatomical images and other volumetric data sets are important in many scientific and biomedical fields. Since such sets may be extremely large, a scalable compression method is critical to store, process and ...

  • Yee, Alexander (2013-05-24)
    FFT implementations today generally fall into two categories: Library generators (such as FFTW and Spiral) and specialized FFTs (such as prime95). Specialized FFTs have the obvious limitation of being specialized. However ...

  • Shih, Hsi-Ching (1986)
    Fault collapsing, test generation, and fault simulation were traditionally developed at the gate-level based on the stuck-at fault model. However, with the advent of VLSI MOS technology, this fault model is not applicable. ...
