  • Schmidt, James (Duke University Press, 2007-11)
  • Gordon, Edmund Irwin (2010-03-23)
    The Edmund Irwin Gordon papers document Gordon’s studies and professional work. The collection contains correspondence, EIG’s writings for publication and otherwise, course materials from the University of Pennsylvania ...
  • Ridley-Kerr, Abby (2013-05-07)
    There has been relatively little research on the effectiveness of civic engagement programs at promoting student achievement. This thesis attempts to provide some context for the potential of civic engagement programs like ...
  • Ghosh, Rajani (2013-05-07)
    “The most serious danger Americans now face, greater than terrorism, is that our country’s future may not end up in the hands of a citizenry capable of sustaining the liberty that has been America’s most precious legacy.” ...
  • Barman, Dhiman; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2002)
    The current congestion-oriented design of TCP hinders its ability to perform well in hybrid wireless/wired networks. We propose a new improvement on TCP NewReno (NewReno-FF) using a new loss labeling technique to discriminate ...
  • Hou, Ying-Chen Claire; Chittaranjan, Suganthi; Barbosa, Sharon González; McCall, Kimberly; Gorski, Sharon M. (The Rockefeller University Press, 2008-09-15)
    A complex relationship exists between autophagy and apoptosis, but the regulatory mechanisms underlying their interactions are largely unknown. We conducted a systematic study of Drosophila melanogaster cell death–related ...
  • Berzhanskaya, Julia; Swaminathan, Gurumurthy; Beck, Jacob; Mingolla, Ennio (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2003-02)
    The perception of a glossy surface in a static monochromatic image can occur when a bright highlight is embedded in a compatible context of shading and a bounding contour. Some images naturally give rise to the impression ...
  • Przybyszewski, A.W.; Sucher, N.J.; Grüsser, O.-J. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1995-01)
    L(+)-, D(-)-, or DL-2-amino-4-phosphonobutyric acid (APB; 2.5- 16 μmol) were injected into the vitreous body of anesthetized adult cats. The retina was stimulated by diffuse square wave light flashes (10- 60 ms). The ...
  • Qi, Xin; Parmer, Gabriel; West, Richard; Gloudon, Jason; Hernandez, Luis (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-03-01)
    Current low-level networking abstractions on modern operating systems are commonly implemented in the kernel to provide sufficient performance for general purpose applications. However, it is desirable for high performance ...
  • Considine, Jeffrey (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-01-21)
    Efficient storage of types within a compiler is necessary to avoid large blowups in space during compilation. Recursive types in particular are important to consider, as naive representations of recursive types may be ...
  • Athitsos, Vassilis; Alon, Jonathan; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-03-16)
    Nearest neighbor classification using shape context can yield highly accurate results in a number of recognition problems. Unfortunately, the approach can be too slow for practical applications, and thus approximation ...
  • Lapets, Andrei; House, DAvid (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009-11-06)
    In work that involves mathematical rigor, there are numerous benefits to adopting a representation of models and arguments that can be supplied to a formal reasoning or verification system: reusability, automatic evaluation ...
  • West, Richard; Gloudon, Jason; Qi, Xin; Parmer, Gabriel; Gloudon, Jason (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-02-23)
    This paper focuses on an efficient user-level method for the deployment of application-specific extensions, using commodity operating systems and hardware. A sandboxing technique is described that supports multiple extensions ...
  • Wang, Tao; Matta, Ibrahim; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-12-02)
    We consider the problem of efficiently and fairly allocating bandwidth at a highly congested link to a diverse set of flows, including TCP flows with various Round Trip Times (RTT), non-TCP-friendly flows such as ...
  • Smaragdakis, Georgios; Lekakis, Vassilis; Laoutaris, Nikolaos; Bestavros, Azer; Byers, John W.; Roussopoulos, Mema (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2008-07-01)
    A foundational issue underlying many overlay network applications ranging from routing to peer-to-peer file sharing is that of connectivity management, i.e., folding new arrivals into an existing overlay, and rewiring to ...
  • Smaragdakis, Georgios; Laoutaris, Nikolaos; Bestavros, Azer; Byers, John W.; Roussopoulos, Mema (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2007)
    A foundational issue underlying many overlay network applications ranging from routing to P2P file sharing is that of connectivity management, i.e., folding new arrivals into an existing overlay, and re-wiring to cope with ...
  • Samz, Charles (International Center for East Asian Archaeology and Cultural History, Boston University, 1964)
  • Uden, James (The Johns Hopkins University Press, 2009)
    This paper explores the ideological currents running through Maximianus's subversive revival of the genre of Augustan love elegy in the beleaguered Rome of the mid-sixth century. The third elegy narrates an apparent childhood ...
  • Gonsalves, Paul G.; Snorrason, Magnus; Caglayan, Alper K. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1993-01)
    Training data for supervised learning neural networks can be clustered such that the input/output pairs in each cluster are redundant. Redundant training data can adversely affect training time. In this paper we apply two ...
  • Londono, Jorge (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-07-20)
    Large scale distributed computing infrastructures pose challenging resource management problems, which could be addressed by adopting one of two perspectives. On the one hand, the problem could be framed as a global ...
