[20120131] Economic Development at a Public University  A Process Model and Associated Metrics
A university has long been considered an institution of higher learning with the immutable dual goals of research and teaching. A “public” university, however, has also had the founding principle of service, the performance ... 
[20120330] The Effect of Communication Time Delays in Parallel Computations
Parallel computer architectures utilize a set of computational elements (CE) to achieve performance that is not attainable on a single processor, or CE, computer. A common architecture is the cluster of otherwise independent ... 
[20120329] The effect of time delays in the stability of load balancing algorithms for parallel computations
Deterministic dynamic nonlinear timedelay systems are developed to model load balancing in a cluster of computer nodes used for parallel computations. The model is shown to be self consistent in that the queue lengths ... 
[20120327] The effect of time delays on the stability of load balancing algorithms for parallel computations
A deterministic dynamic nonlinear timedelay system is developed to model load balancing in a cluster of computer nodes used for parallel computations. The model is shown to be self consistent in that the queue lengths ... 
[20120329] Effects of quantization, saturation, and sampling time in multi output systems
We analyze the effects of sampling and quantization in the states of the plant, and the saturation of the control signal, on the behaviors of closedloop systems. We present graphical and analytical tools to determine the ... 
[20120323] Efficient User Controlled InterDomain SIP Mobility Authentication, Registration, and Call Routing
Over the past decade, multimedia services have gained significant acceptance and played an important role in the convergence of IP networks. The proliferation of mobile devices and the nomadic user and computing lifestyles ... 
[20120126] An Experimental Evaluation of Akamai Adaptive Video Streaming over HSDPA networks
Adaptive video streaming is a relevant advancement with respect to classic progressive download streaming such as the one employed by YouTube. Building upon its content delivery network (CDN), Akamai recently started to ... 
[20120329] Experimental implementation of flocking algorithms in wheeled mobile robots
In this paper we present an experimental implementation of the flocking algorithm presented by H.G. Tanner et al., (2003) for the double integrator model, in the case of wheeled mobile robots (WMR). We use the look ahead ... 
[20120419] Experimental implementation of MRAC for a Dc Servo Motor
A hardware implementation of adaptive controllers using a digital signal processor (TMS320C25) is described. Two model reference adaptive control (MRAC) schemes are explored together with some of the practical problems ... 
[20120327] Experimental investigation of active feedback control of turbulent transport in a magnetized laboratory plasma
Summary form only given. Many toroidal fusion devices now routinely generate edge and/or core transport barriers, where heat and particle transport are reduced far below Bohm diffusion levels. However, minimal particle ... 
[20120412] Experimental results in robust lateral control of highway vehicles
Vehicle lateral dynamics are affected by vehicle mass, longitudinal velocity, vehicle inertia, and the cornering stiffness of the tires. All of these parameters are subject to variation, even over the course of a single ... 
[20120413] Experimental results in robust lateral control of highway vehicles
Vehicle lateral dynamics are affected by vehicle mass, longitudinal velocity, vehicle inertia, and the cornering stiffness of the tires. All of these parameters are subject to variation, even over the course of a single ... 
[20120329] Experimental results on the effects of 802.11 b WLAN on networked control system
In this paper we expose theoretically and experimentally some of issues induced by wireless Ethernet when it is used to transmit plant state information to the controller, and control signals to the plant, in a closedloop ... 
[20120406] Experimental studies of the crossexcitation instability in a relativistic backward wave oscillator
Our group first reported the operation of a relativistic backward wave oscillator (BWO) in the socalled “crossexcitation” regime in 1998. This instability, whose general properties were predicted earlier through numerical ... 
[20120327] Exploiting Multiuser Diversity in Scheduling MIMO Cellular Systems
In this paper we consider a scheme of packet scheduling for the forward link of a MIMO cellular system, to increase system capacity by exploiting multiuser diversity based on spatial multiplexing (SM). The proposed scheme ... 
[20120412] The exponential hash function
In this paper an efficient open address hash function called exponential hashing is developed. The motivation for this hash function resulted from our ongoing efforts to apply dynamical systems theory to the study of ... 
[20120412] An exponential open hashing function based on dynamical systems theory
In this paper an efficient open addressing hash function called exponential hashing is developed using concepts from dynamical systems theory and number theory. A comparison of exponential hashing versus a widely used ... 
[20120419] Extremepoint stability tests for discretetime polynomials
The authors provide an extension to some robust stability results for discretetime polynomials expressed directly in the coefficient domain by making use of extremepoint results for continuoustime polynomials. Specifically, ... 
[20120419] Feasibility analysis of channel equalizers using Kharitonovtype results
Necessary and sufficient conditions for determining the robust location of the roots of a family of polynomials are presented. This family appears when multipath fading channels are considered due to the uncertainty in the ... 
[20120413] Filter design to guarantee convergence of the pseudolinear regression IIR adaptive algorithm
In this paper we design a finite impulse response (FIR) filter to enforce the socalled strictly positive realness (SPR) condition in an adaptive infinite impulse response (IIR) filtering context. The paper results may ...
