  • Smaragdakis, Georgios; Laoutaris, Nikolaos; Michiardi, Pietro; Bestavros, Azer; Byers, John; Roussopoulos, Mema (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2007)
    In an n-way broadcast application each one of n overlay nodes wants to push its own distinct large data file to all other n-1 destinations as well as download their respective data files. BitTorrent-like swarming protocols ...
  • Betke, Margrit; Gusyatin, Oleg; Urinson, Mikhail (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-02-26)
    A method called "SymbolDesign" is proposed that can be used to design user-centered interfaces for pen-based input devices. It can also extend the functionality of pointer input devices such as the traditional computer ...
  • Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1998-01)
  • Grossberg, Stephen; Gruenwald, Alexander (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1994-05)
    Variability in retinal and geniculate processing rate that is dependent on stimulus properties suggests that some later process can put parts corresponding to the same retinal image back into register. This resynchronization ...
  • Grossberg, Stephen; Somers, David (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1991-02)
    A neural network model of synchronized oscillations in visual cortex is presented to account for recent neurophysiological findings that such synchronization may reflect global properties of the stimulus. In these experiments, ...
  • Grossberg, Stephen; Somers, David (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1991-06)
    A neural network model of synchronized oscillator activity in visual cortex is presented in order to account for recent neurophysiological findings that such synchronization may reflect global properties of the stimulus. ...
  • Cohen, Michael A. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1992-02)
    We wish to construct a realization theory of stable neural networks and use this theory to model the variety of stable dynamics apparent in natural data. Such a theory should have numerous applications to constructing ...
  • Grossberg, Stephen; Mingolla, Ennio; Williamson, James (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1994-01)
    A neural network model of boundary segmentation and surface representation is devdoped to process images containing range data gathered by a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) sensor. The boundary and surface processing are ...
  • Donnelly, Kevin (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2007)
    System F is a type system that can be seen as both a proof system for second-order propositional logic and as a polymorphic programming language. In this work we explore several extensions of System F by types which express ...
  • Bradley, Adam D.; Bestavros, Azer; Kfoury, Assaf J. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-05-16)
    Formal correctness of complex multi-party network protocols can be difficult to verify. While models of specific fixed compositions of agents can be checked against design constraints, protocols which lend themselves to ...
  • Rosenzweig, Daphne (International Center for East Asian Archaeology and Cultural History, Boston University, 1968-1974)
  • Martin, Michael (The New Zealand Association of Rationalists and Humanists, 1996-03)
  • Srihasam, Krishna; Bullock, Daniel; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2007-11)
    Oculomotor tracking of moving objects is an important component of visually based cognition and planning. Such tracking is achieved by a combination of saccades and smooth pursuit eye movements. In particular, the saccadic ...
  • Crovella, Mark E.; Harchol-Balter, Mor; Murta, Cristina D. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1997-10-31)
    We consider the problem of task assignment in a distributed system (such as a distributed Web server) in which task sizes are drawn from a heavy-tailed distribution. Many task assignment algorithms are based on the heuristic ...
  • Pilly, Praveen K.; Grossberg, Stephen; Seitz, Aaron R. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2009-6)
    Studies of perceptual learning have focused on aspects of learning that are related to early stages of sensory processing. However, conclusions that perceptual learning results in low-level sensory plasticity are of great ...
  • Bestavros, Azer; Kim, Gitae (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1996-07-15)
    The popularity of TCP/IP coupled with the premise of high speed communication using Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) technology have prompted the network research community to propose a number of techniques to adapt TCP/IP ...
  • Guo, Liang; Crovella, Mark; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-07-03)
    Long-range dependence has been observed in many recent Internet traffic measurements. Previous studies have shown that there is a close relationship between heavy-tailed distribution of various traffic parameters and the ...
  • Gschwendter, Thomas (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-05-12)
    This thesis presents a framework for aggregated congestion management for TCP flows and shows how to integrate such an approach in an existing TCP protocol stack. The thesis presents an initial implementation of this ...
  • Barman, Dhiman; Matta, Ibrahim; Altman, Eitan; El Azouzi, Rachid (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-12-03)
    TCP performance degrades when end-to-end connections extend over wireless connections-links which are characterized by high bit error rate and intermittent connectivity. Such link characteristics can significantly degrade ...
  • Mattar, Karim Abdel Magid (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2007)
    Modern cellular channels in 3G networks incorporate sophisticated power control and dynamic rate adaptation which can have a significant impact on adaptive transport layer protocols, such as TCP. Though there exists studies ...
