    • Addressing the Consensus Problem in Real-time Using Lightweight Middleware on Distributed Devices 

      Hall, Keith Anton (2012-10-19)
      With the advent of the modern technological age, a plethora of electronic tools and devices are available in numbers as never before. While beneficial and ex-ceedingly useful, these electronic devices require users to ...
    • Effective algorithms and protocols for wireless networking: a topological approach 

      Zhang, Fenghui (Texas A&M University, 2008-10-10)
      Much research has been done on wireless sensor networks. However, most protocols and algorithms for such networks are based on the ideal model Unit Disk Graph (UDG) model or do not assume any model. Furthermore, many ...
    • GraphBLAS: Solving Graph Algorithms with Linear Algebra 

      Maldonado Guzman, Julio Cesar
      GraphBLAS is a C library written by Dr. Davis that allows users to easily represent graphs as sparse matrices. GraphBLAS also allows linear algebra operations on its graphs, so that users can develop graph algorithms in ...
    • Orienting Deformable Polygonal Parts without Sensors 

      Kristek, Shawn (2012-02-14)
      Parts orienting is an important part of automated manufacturing. Sensorless manipulation has proven to be a useful paradigm in addressing parts orienting, and the manipulation of deformable objects is a growing area of ...
    • Parameterized Approaches for Large-Scale Optimization Problems 

      Buchanan, Austin Loyd (2015-07-10)
      In this dissertation, we study challenging discrete optimization problems from the perspective of parameterized complexity. The usefulness of this type of analysis is twofold. First, it can lead to efficient algorithms for ...
    • Personalized Expert Recommendation: Models and Algorithms 

      Lu, Haokai (2017-12-04)
      Many large-scale information sharing systems including social media systems, questionanswering sites and rating and reviewing applications have been growing rapidly, allowing millions of human participants to generate and ...
    • Photoacoustic computed tomography in biological tissues: algorithms and breast imaging 

      Xu, Minghua (Texas A&M University, 2004-11-15)
      Photoacoustic computed tomography (PAT) has great potential for application in the biomedical field. It best combines the high contrast of electromagnetic absorption and the high resolution of ultrasonic waves in biological ...
    • Radar Nowcasting of Total Lightning over the Kennedy Space Center 

      Seroka, Gregory Nicholas (2011-08-08)
      The NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC) is situated along the east coast of central Florida, where a high frequency of lightning occurs annually. Although cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning forecasting using radar echoes has been ...
    • Re-Reference Interval Prediction Swap Policy in the Linux Kernel 

      Singer, Andrew R
      Modern computing systems are placing ever greater pressure on their memory management systems. The current means of managing the page cache in the Linux kernel is a binary ranking standard through which cached pages are ...
    • Solving the RMTP with an Unknown Bound on Reordering using Bounded Counters 

      Kirchhofer, Grant W
      This research analyzes the reliable message transmission problem, or RMTP, with a different set of constraints than has been previously studied. The RMTP describes the task of simulating a reliable computer communication ...
    • Statistical Robustness Analysis of Random Sampling Consensus Method 

      Weishuhn, Jonathan R
      One of the most vocalized applications of computational interactivity today stem from our biological sense of perception, both in its promise for automation and heeding of its still prevalent weaknesses. Computer vision, ...
    • Zen Routing 

      Lewis, Justin T (2017-04-27)
