  • [2013-07-11] Front Rendering on the GPU 

    Jeffrey, Bowles
    The glyphs described in a font are usually rendered using software that runs on the CPU. This can be done very quickly and is a well understood process. These techniques work well when the glyph is rendered such that each ...
  • [2013-07-11] Hopscotch: Robust Multi-agent Search 

    Miles, Edward C.
    The task of searching a space is critical to a wide range of diverse applications such as land mine clearing and planetary exploration. Because applications frequently require searching remote or hazardous locations, and ...
  • [2011-08-30] Improving peer review with ACORN : Ant Colony Optimization algorithm for Reviewer's Network 

    Flynn, Mark
    Peer review, our current system for determining which papers to accept and which to reject by journals and conferences, has limitations that impair the quality of scientific communication. Under the current system, reviewers ...
  • [2014-07-12] Introducing Modularity into Complex Software Test Suite Frameworks 

    Frey, Lucille
    Large, complex programming projects are often constructed by developers at multiple institutions working with a variety of computer architectures and environments. For such projects a useful testing scheme must test all ...
  • [2014-07-12] Meta Concepts: A Knowledge-Based Code Generation System 

    Moss, Nicholas
    People have an amazing ability to solve complex problems by performing a sequence of simpler operations (i.e: functions/procedures which take input variables and produce output variables). We are able to do so even when ...
  • [2010-09-09] Molecular simulations of dendritic molecules : a study of PAMAM and phenyl-acetylene dendrimers 

    Fleharty, Mark
    Dendrimers are branched molecules that often have chemical properties similar to proteins and other large organic molecules. Dendrimers presently have applications as reactive surfaces for catalysis, and as hosts for ...
  • [2013-09-03] Ontology-based annotation using naive Bayes and decision trees 

    Xu, Jiawei Jr
    The Cognitive Paradigm Ontology (CogPO) defines an ontological relationship between academic terms and experiments in the field of neuroscience. BrainMap (www.brainmap.org) is a database of literature describing these ...
  • [2010-06-25] Programmer feedback and dynamic analysis to enable optimization in Java applications: the D.U.P.O. framework 

    Mohr, David
    It is inherently difficult for static analyses to make precise decisions about dynamic features of modern object-oriented languages. This makes it more difficult to apply optimizations aggressively. This thesis introduces ...
  • [2011-02-08] Simulating the evolution of recruitment behavior in foraging Ants 

    Letendre, Kenneth
    Spatial heterogeneity in the distribution of food is an important determinant of species' optimal foraging strategies, and of the dynamics of populations and communities. In order to explore the interaction of food ...
  • [2010-02-09] Supervised manifold distance segmentation 

    Wang, Guanyu
    In this paper, I will propose a simple and robust method for image and volume data segmentation based on manifold distance metrics. In this approach, pixels in an image are not considered as points with color values arranged ...
  • [2010-02-09] Using ant colony optimization for routing in microprocesors 

    Arora, Tamanna
    Power consumption is an important constraint on VLSI systems. With the advancement in technology, it is now possible to pack a large range of functionalities into VLSI devices. Hence it is important to find out ways to ...
