(1988)Considered in this thesis is the class of timeinhomogeneous Markov chains whose transition probabilities are proportional to nonnegative powers of a small, timevarying parameter. A new notion of order of recurrence is ...

(1997)Based on the lessons learned from the study of ALUbiasing arbitration, we present a novel, costeffective queueing and scheduling algorithm, called Rotating Combined Queueing (RCQ), which can efficiently support a range ...

(1991)This thesis describes techniques for bandwidth enhancement for lowprofile antennas. The first method involves the use of coupled resonators. In particular, two cavitybacked slot antennas are coupled through an aperture ...

(2008)In this thesis, we present a Bayesian approach to the problem of beamforming without accurate knowledge about the directionofarrival. Under the Bayesian formulation, the proposed beamformer is constructed as a mixture ...

(2001)Finally, kernel canonical correlation analysis (CCA) is developed to model nonlinear or highorder correlations between signals from two sources. Kernel CCA uses kernel principal component analysis (PCA), which elegantly ...

(1991)This thesis describes the use of the eigenvalue method for computing the modes of cavity resonators. A matrix formulation of the integral equation describing the modes of a resonator is a powerful and flexible method of ...

(201412)Thermal sources, such as an incandescent light bulb or heated stove top, are understood to be incoherent sources of radiation. This property ensures a desk lamp’s light does not create fringe patterns when passed through ...

(20100519)In this thesis, we propose BERoptimal analogtodigital converters (ADC) where quantization levels and thresholds are set nonuniformly to minimize the biterror rate (BER). This is in contrast to presentday ADCs which ...

(1993)In this thesis, a behaviorallevel testability analysis approach is presented. This approach is based on analyzing the circuit behavioral description (similar to a C program) to estimate its testability by identifying ...

(20110825)We consider using passive RFID technology beyond its traditional purpose, namely, identification. Instead we consider passive tags being densely distributed in space, providing the infrastructure for distributed, physical ...
