  • Olofsson, Pontus; Torchinava, Paata; Woodcock, Curtis E; Baccini, Alessandro; Houghton, Richard A; Ozdogan, Mutlu; Zhao, Feng; Yang, Xiaoyuan (BioMed Central, 2010-9-13)
    BACKGROUND: Globally, the loss of forests now contributes almost 20% of carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere. There is an immediate need to reduce the current rates of forest loss, and the associated release of carbon ...
  • Laoutaris, Nikolaos; Smaragdakis, Georgios; Bestavros, Azer; Byers, John W. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-07-14)
    In a typical overlay network for routing or content sharing, each node must select a fixed number of immediate overlay neighbors for routing traffic or content queries. A selfish node entering such a network would select ...
  • Bonmassar, Giorgio; Schwartz, Eric L. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1998-02)
    Template matching via cross-correlation on Laplacian pyramid image architectures has been traditionally performed in a "coarse" to "fine" fashion. In the present paper, we show that by computing cross-correlation within ...
  • Kanukurth, Bhavana (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009)
    We consider the problem of building robust fuzzy extractors, which allow two parties holding similar random variables W, W' to agree on a secret key R in the presence of an active adversary. Robust fuzzy extractors were ...
  • Rosales, Romer; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1998-03-16)
    A combined 2D, 3D approach is presented that allows for robust tracking of moving bodies in a given environment as observed via a single, uncalibrated video camera. Tracking is robust even in the presence of occlusions. ...
  • Dunn, Devon
    This paper examines whether gun control laws and mental health services are complements or substitutes in reducing gun violence in the United States. To study the relationship between these variables, I used data from the ...
  • Lapets, Andrei (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009-04-30)
    In research areas involving mathematical rigor, there are numerous benefits to adopting a formal representation of models and arguments: reusability, automatic evaluation of examples, and verification of consistency and ...
  • Smaragdakis, Georgios; Laoutaris, Nikolaos; Bestavros, Azer; Byers, John; 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 the existing mesh and re-wiring to cope with ...
  • Holloway, Dustin T; Kon, Mark; DeLisi, Charles (BioMed Central, 2008-6-18)
    BACKGROUND. An important goal in bioinformatics is to unravel the network of transcription factors (TFs) and their targets. This is important in the human genome, where many TFs are involved in disease progression. Here, ...
  • Wang, Chong; Byers, John (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2012-06-20)
    With the primacy of content driving the design of new network architectures as well as the successful CDN business model, it is instructive to reconsider problems of content placement from the context of ISPs. In particular, ...
  • Giove, Thomas J.; Deshpande, Monika M.; Gagen, Christine S.; Eldred, William D. (Molecular Vision, 2009-11-09)
    PURPOSE. There are increased levels of nitric oxide (NO) in diabetic retinas. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent that neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) contributes to the increased levels of retinal ...
  • Aguilar, Mario J.; Ross, William D. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1994-02)
    Abstract Incremental ART extends adaptive resonance theory (ART) by incorporating mechanisms for efficient recognition through incremental feature extraction. The system achieves efficient confident prediction through the ...
  • Erramilli, Vijay; Crovella, Mark; Taft, Nina (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-09-06)
    A common assumption made in traffic matrix (TM) modeling and estimation is independence of a packet's network ingress and egress. We argue that in real IP networks, this assumption should not and does not hold. The fact ...
  • Liu, Lifeng; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-03-22)
    An improved method for deformable shape-based image indexing and retrieval is described. A pre-computed index tree is used to improve the speed of our previously reported on-line model fitting method; simple shape features ...
  • Potamias, Michalis (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009)
    This thesis elaborates on the problem of preprocessing a large graph so that single-pair shortest-path queries can be answered quickly at runtime. Computing shortest paths is a well studied problem, but exact algorithms ...
  • Stefan, Alexandra (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2008)
    Many real world image analysis problems, such as face recognition and hand pose estimation, involve recognizing a large number of classes of objects or shapes. Large margin methods, such as AdaBoost and Support Vector ...

  • Pack, Christopher; Mingolla, Ennio (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1997-06-04)
    When an expansion flow field of moving dots is overlapped by planar motion, observers perceive an illusory displacement of the focus of expansion (FOE) in the direction of the planar motion (Duffy & Wurtz, 1993. Vision ...
