    • Adaptive protocols for mobile ad hoc networks 

      Holland, Gavin Douglas (Texas A&M University, 2005-02-17)
      Recent advances in low-power technologies have resulted in the proliferation of inexpensive handheld mobile computing devices. Soon, just like the Internet empow- ered a whole new world of applications for personal ...
    • 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 ...
    • Analysis of S-Circuit Uncertainty 

      Ahmed, Taahir (2011-08-08)
      The theory of sensori-computational circuits provides a capable framework for the description and optimization of robotic systems, including on-line optimizations. This theory, however, is inadequate in that it does not ...
    • Characterization of DNS Servers for Latency Estimation Metrics 

      Johnson, Joseph
      It is easy to “ping” a remote computer from one’s own to determine the time delay between them, but estimating the latency between two remote hosts is much less trivial. This problem has various applications: social ...
    • Circadian Clock Development and Initiation in Drosophila melanogaster 

      Liu, Tianxin (2017-07-31)
      In Drosophila, time-keeping is based on a ~24h transcription feedback loop, in which CLOCK-CYCLE (CLK-CYC) heterodimers activate transcription of genes encoding the feedback repressors PERIOD (PER) and TIMELESS (TIM). ...
    • Flow control techniques for real-time media applications in best-effort networks using fluid models 

      Konstantinou, Apostolos (Texas A&M University, 2004-11-15)
      Quality of Service (QoS) in real-time media applications is an area of current interest because of the increasing demand for audio/video, and generally multimedia applications, over best effort networks, such as the Internet. ...
    • Improved Connectivity using Hybrid Uni/Omni-Directional Antennas in Sensor Networks 

      Kwon, Ji Heon (2008-05-27)
      Connectivity in sensor networks is an important metric that describes the capability of networks to be able to report sensed information. The ability of member nodes to communicate with each other and collectively report ...
    • Improving network routing performance in dynamic environments 

      Liu, Yong (Texas A&M University, 2007-04-25)
      In this dissertation, we study methods for improving the routing performance of computer communication networks in dynamic environments. The dynamic environments we considered in this work include both network topology ...
    • Molecular Determinants of Photoreceptor Presynaptic Terminal Morphology 

      Whitaker, Dustin Thad (2018-03-13)
      Rod and cone photoreceptors are light-receptive cells in the visual system that convert photons into an electrochemical signal to be processed through the retina and transmitted into the brain. From the first visual synapse, ...
    • Neural Network Approach to Feature Sensitive Motion Planning 

      Medina Vargas, Jose Andres (2013-09-26)
      Motion planning (MP) is the problem of finding a valid path (e.g., collision free) from a start to a goal state for a movable object. MP is a complex problem with a myriad of applications, ranging from robotics, to ...
    • Performance analysis and network path characterization for scalable internet streaming 

      Kang, Seong-Ryong (Texas A&M University, 2008-10-10)
      Delivering high-quality of video to end users over the best-effort Internet is a challenging task since quality of streaming video is highly subject to network conditions. A fundamental issue in this area is how real-time ...
    • Virtual Patching: Fighting Brute Force Attacks in a Software Defined Network 

      Nelson, Blake
      A new design for virtual patching applications is presented for software defined network environments. Based on OpenFlow implementation, a software defined network can be programmed to intelligently detect threats and ...
    • Zen Routing 

      Lewis, Justin T (2017-04-27)
      Driving induced stress is a problem inherent to contemporary living in urban areas. Traffic congestion, route unpredictability, and other factors cause undue stress to commuters daily. This project’s purpose is to alleviate ...
