  • Samz, Charles (International Center for East Asian Archaeology and Cultural History, Boston University, 1950/1974)
  • Sigal, Leonid; Sclaroff, Stan; Athitsos, Vassilis (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-03-25)
    A novel approach for real-time skin segmentation in video sequences is described. The approach enables reliable skin segmentation despite wide variation in illumination during tracking. An explicit second order Markov model ...
  • Atlas, Alia; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1998-05-02)
    In this paper, we present Slack Stealing Job Admission Control (SSJAC)---a methodology for scheduling periodic firm-deadline tasks with variable resource requirements, subject to controllable Quality of Service (QoS) ...
  • Esposito, Flavio; Matta, Ibrahim; Ishakian, Vatche (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2011-12-13)
    Network virtualization provides a novel approach to run multiple concurrent virtual networks over a common physical network infrastructure. From a research perspective, this enables the networking community to concurrently ...
  • Bera, Debajyoti; Green, Frederic; Homer, Steven (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2007)
    Small depth quantum circuits have proved to be unexpectedly powerful in comparison to their classical counterparts. We survey some of the recent work on this and present some open problems.
  • Jin, Shudong; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2002-01)
    Recent work has shown the prevalence of small-world phenomena [28] in many networks. Small-world graphs exhibit a high degree of clustering, yet have typically short path lengths between arbitrary vertices. Internet AS-level ...
  • Kwon, Gu-In; Byers, John W. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2002)
    A significant impediment to deployment of multicast services is the daunting technical complexity of developing, testing and validating congestion control protocols fit for wide-area deployment. Protocols such as pgmcc and ...
  • Weller, Robert (University of Pittsburgh, 2013-01-24)
  • Skowyra, Rick; Bahargam, Sanaz; Bestavros, Azer (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2013-05-01)
    The increasing deployment of networked mobile embedded devices leads to unique challenges in communications security. This is especially true for embedded biomedical devices and robotic materials handling, in which subversion ...
  • Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1992-10)
    A neural network model of 3-D visual perception and figure-ground separation by visual cortex is introduced. The theory provides a unified explanation of how a 2-D image may generate a 3-D percept; how figures pop-out from ...
  • Samz, Charles (International Center for East Asian Archaeology and Cultural History, Boston University, 1964)
  • Donnelly, Kevin; Kfoury, Assaf J. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-07-27)
    Weak references are references that do not prevent the object they point to from being garbage collected. Most realistic languages, including Java, SML/NJ, and OCaml to name a few, have some facility for programming with ...
  • Lindholm, Charles (2012-07-09)
  • Yoon, Jaehee; Bestavros, Azer; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1999-12-10)
    SomeCast is a novel paradigm for the reliable multicast of real-time data to a large set of receivers over the Internet. SomeCast is receiver-initiated and thus scalable in the number of receivers, the diverse characteristics ...
  • Brandon, Mark P; Hasselmo, Michael E (Biology Reports Ltd, 2009-01-21)
    Neurons in the hippocampus are thought to provide information on an animal's location within its environment. Input to the hippocampus comes via afferents from the entorhinal cortex, which are separated into several major ...
  • Gnadt, William; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2004-10)
    Both animals and mobile robots, or animats, need adaptive control systems to guide their movements through a novel environment. Such control systems need reactive mechanisms for exploration, and learned plans to efficiently ...
  • Gnadt, William; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2007-09)
    How do reactive and planned behaviors interact in real time? How are sequences of such behaviors released at appropriate times during autonomous navigation to realize valued goals? Controllers for both animals and mobile ...
  • Gorchetchnikov, Anatoli; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2006-06)
    The hippocampus participates in multiple functions, including spatial navigation, adaptive timing, and declarative (notably, episodic) memory. How does it carry out these particular functions? The present article proposes ...
  • Bonmassar, Giorgio; Schwartz, Eric L. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1995-12-22)
    Space-variant sensing is the architectural basis of all higher vertebrate visual systems (Schwartz, 1994). One evident motivation for this is that the space-complexity of the human visual system is reduced by up to four ...
