  • Li, Yanjun (2018-06-15)
    Bilinear inverse problems (BIPs), the resolution of two vectors given their image under a bilinear mapping, arise in many applications. Without further constraints, BIPs are usually ill-posed. In practice, parsimonious ...

  • Ponniah, Jonathan (2014-01-16)
    Traditionally, wireless network protocols have been developed for performance. Subsequently, as attacks are identified, patches or defenses have been developed. This has led to an ``arms race,'' where one is never confident ...
