[20130130] Behavior and measurement of distributed sources in a shielding matrix using gamma spectroscopy
As part of its mission, the Department of Energy generates transuranic waste materials. Some of these wastes are present in large waste containers. The accurate assay of these waste materials in large containers poses ... 
[20120323] BENFORD’S LAW IN IMAGE PROCESSING
We present a generalization of Benford’s law for the first significant digit. This generalization is based on keeping two terms of the Fourier expansion of the probability density function of the data in the modular ... 
[20120327] Bilateral Teleoperation of Mobile Robot over Delayed Communication Network: Implementation
In a previous paper we proposed a bilateral teleoperation framework of a wheeled mobile robot over communication channel with constant time delay. In this paper we present experimental results. Our goal is to illustrate ... 
[20120827] Binary consensusbased cooperative spectrum sensing in cognitive radio networks
We propose to use binary consensus algorithms for distributed cooperative spectrum sensing in cognitive radio networks. We propose to use two binary approaches, namely diversity and fusion binary consensus spectrum sensing. ... 
[20100624] Bioadhesion to model thermally responsive surfaces
This dissertation focuses on the characterization of two surfaces: mixed selfassembled monolayers (SAMs) of hexa(ethylene glycol) and alkyl thiolates (mixed SAM) and poly(Nisopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAm). The synthesis ... 
[20100209] Bioagent defeat in shock driven gas flow
The problem of planar shock interaction with gas cylinders whose axis of symmetry is parallel to the plane of the shock has been well studied both experimentally and numerically, and in this case, the flow evolution driven ... 
[20130131] Biofilm formation by Shewanella oneidensis MR1 towards fundamental understanding of anode respiring communities
Microbial fuel cells are bioelectrochemical devices where, on the anode, microorganisms oxidize complex carbon sources and reduce the electrode via complex mechanisms of extracellular electron transfer (EET). To date, ... 
[20110209] Biofuel Cell Anode for NADDependent Enzymes
Enzymatic biofuel cells are a very attractive young technology based on utilization of natural, renewable and plentiful resources that offer an alternative energy source. Most fuel cells run on hydrogen; but it is extremely ... 
[20130130] Biological and biomimetic oxygen electroreduction by enzymes
Enzyme catalysts are a viable alternative to the traditional platinum based catalysts for the complete oxidation of complex fuels. Efficient oxidation of multicarbon compounds, selective catalytic activity eliminating the ... 
[20120406] Bounded control of multipledelay systems with applications to ATM networks
Congestion control in the available bit rate (ABR) class of asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks poses interesting challenges due to the presence of multipledelays, magnitude and rate constraints on the inputs and ... 
[20120329] Bounded controller design of an ABR explicit rate algorithm for ATM switches
Browse > Conferences> Decision and Control, 2003. Pr ... Bounded controller design of an ABR explicit rate algorithm for ATM switches .1273000 abstract . Tarbouriech, S.; Ariola, A.; Abdallah, C.T.; CNRS, ... 
[20120413] Bounding the Errors in Constructive Function Approximation
In this paper we study the theoretical limits of finite constructive convex approximations of a given function in a Hilbert space using elements taken from a reduced subset. We also investigate the tradeoff between the ... 
[20120413] Bounding the frequency response for digital transfer functions: results and applications
This paper introduces robust stability techniques for the computation of exact bounds for the frequency response of FIR and IIR digital filters in which the l∞ norm of the coefficients is bounded. 
[20080721] BPSK system analysis using MEMS filters
For some military applications, there exists a need for small custom radios. These radios need to be able to survive extreme environments and transmit the necessary data. This can be achieved by using banks of micromechanical ... 
[20110208] Builtin controller for selftest and repair of 3D integrated Nand flash memory chip, used in radiation intense space environment
The perennial need for memory storage is further increasing with the advancements in technology. Both terrestrial and space related applications thrive on efficient ways and new technology for storing data that is incorruptible ... 
[20110209] Capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer arrays for blood flow ultrasound Doppler and photoacoustic
The Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasonic Technology (CMUT) has emerged as a promising alternative to piezoelectric transducers in the medical ultrasound market since 1990s. Compared to piezoelectric technology, the MEMS ... 
[20120702] Carbon nanotubes as interconnect for next generation network on chip
Multicore processors provide better performance when compared with their singlecore equivalent. Recently, NetworksonChip (NoC) have emerged as a communication methodology for multi core chips. NetworkonChip uses ... 
[20110207] Card counting meets hidden Markov models
The Hidden Markov Model (HMM) is a stochastic process that involves an unobservable Markov Chain and an observable output at each state in the chain. Hidden Markov Models are described by three parameters: A, B, and ... 
[20110322] A Categorical Model for Faceted Ontologies with Data Repositories
We present a theoretical framework for faceted ontologies equipped with data repositiories. The ontology structures, inferencing within ontologies, and repository use and updating are expressed using mathematical structures ...
