  • Yu, Jing; Baghsorkhi, Sara; Snir, Marc (2005-04)
    We propose in this paper a new approach to study the temporal and spatial locality of codes using a plot of cache miss bandwidth as a function of cache size and line size for a fully associative LRU cache. We apply this ...

  • Xiang, Hua (2004-05)
    Physical design plays an important role in connecting front-end design and back-end design in chip development. In this thesis, we solve several important problems in physical design of VLSI circuits. Chapter 2 addresses ...

    In this paper we argue that a worker-centric scheduler design is more desirable for data-intensive applications in Grid environments. Previous research on task-centric scheduling for dataintensive applications has identi ...

    We studied the most popular websites in the US and around the world and discovered that few of them implement the HTTP standard completely. However, the servers are capable of implementing HTTP correctly; it is the ...

  • Neradt, Hanna Joy (2007-08)
    A linear differential operator often has a nontrivial null space. One consequence for such an operator, L, is that solutions of equations of the form Lu=f are never unique if the null space contains more than the zero ...

  • Hirani, Anil N.; Nakshatrala, K.B.; Chaudhry, J.H. (2008-02)
    We derive a numerical method for Darcy flow, hence also for Poisson's equation in first order form, based on discrete exterior calculus (DEC). Exterior calculus is a generalization of vector calculus to smooth manifolds ...

  • Zelinka, Stephen David (2005-05)
    Modelling by example has arisen as a powerful paradigm for reducing the artistic skill required for computer graphics. Instead of relying on the user's own modelling skills, a system that models by example allows users to ...

    In this paper, we examine the problem of large-volume data dissemination via overlay networks. A natural way to maximize the throughput of an overlay multicast session is to split the traffic and feed them into multiple ...
