BUILDING CUSTOMIZED RISC-V SOC WITH SYSTOLIC ARRAY OPTIMIZED FOR SPECIALIZED MATRIX MULTIPLICATION (2020-05)With diminishing performance improvement from general-purpose processors and reducing cost for programmable hardware, accelerating computation with dedicated accelerators has been gaining increased attention, with FPGAs ...
(2020-05)A photonic nanojet (PNJ) is a non-evanescent beam of light with a subdiffraction width that can propagate over a distance greater than one wavelength. Currently, PNJs are generated primarily with microspheres. Other designs, ...
(2020-05)The application of Graph Signal Processing (GSP) techniques to traffi c networks in urban settings is a challenging problem that has become the topic of many studies in recent works. In this paper, we analyze the ...
Optimizations to the Orthogonal Matching Pursuit Algorithm for Sparse Basis Representations of Photometric Redshift PDFs (2016-05)This thesis investigates potential optimizations for the K-SVD algorithm (using Orthogonal Matching Pursuit) to create a sparse basis representation of probability density functions (PDFs), as implemented by NCSA research ...
(2020-05)The challenge of controlling and guaranteeing the security of the power system is constantly evolving, particularly in light of significant predicted growth in the deployment of renewable energy, and increasing use of ...
