  • Athitsos, Vassilis; Hadjieleftheriou, Marios; Kollios, George; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-03-16)
    A common problem in many types of databases is retrieving the most similar matches to a query object. Finding those matches in a large database can be too slow to be practical, especially in domains where objects are ...
  • Matta, Ibrahim; Yilmaz, Selma (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-03-01)
    The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is an interdomain routing protocol that allows each Autonomous System (AS) to define its own routing policies independently and use them to select the best routes. By means of policies, ...
  • Bestavros, Azer; Lin, Kwei-Jay; Son, Sang (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1996-07-03)
    This report summarizes the technical presentations and discussions that took place during RTDB'96: the First International Workshop on Real-Time Databases, which was held on March 7 and 8, 1996 in Newport Beach, California. ...
  • Chau, Michael; Betke, Margrit (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-03-12)
    A human-computer interface (HCI) system designed for use by people with severe disabilities is presented. People that are severely paralyzed or afflicted with diseases such as ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) or multiple sclerosis ...
  • Baruah, Sanjoy; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1997-05-05)
    There is an increased interest in using broadcast disks to support mobile access to real-time databases. However, previous work has only considered the design of real-time immutable broadcast disks, the contents of which ...
  • Morcos, Hany; Bestavros, Azer; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-10-15)
    Personal communication devices are increasingly equipped with sensors that are able to collect and locally store information from their environs. The mobility of users carrying such devices, and hence the mobility of sensor ...
  • Rosales, Rómer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1998-12-04)
    The performance of different classification approaches is evaluated using a view-based approach for motion representation. The view-based approach uses computer vision and image processing techniques to register and process ...
  • Theriault, Diane; Wu, Zheng; Hristov, Nickolay; Swartz, Sharon; Breuer, Kenneth; Kunz, Thomas; Betke, Margrit (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-09-06)
    The Brazilian free-tailed bat, Tadarida brasiliensis, roosts in very large colonies, consisting of hundreds of thousands of individuals. Each night, bats emerge from their day roosts in dense columns in a highly coordinated ...
  • Alon, Jonathan; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1999-12-01)
    A specialized formulation of Azarbayejani and Pentland's framework for recursive recovery of motion, structure and focal length from feature correspondences tracked through an image sequence is presented. The specialized ...
  • Deshpande, Smita; Betke, Margrit (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009-03-11)
    We present RefLink, an interface that allows users to analyze the content of webpages by dynamically linking to an online encyclopedia such as Wikipedia. Upon opening a webpage, RefLink instantly provides a list of terms ...
  • Liu, Lifeng; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-12-04)
    An improved method for deformable shape-based image segmentation is described. Image regions are merged together and/or split apart, based on their agreement with an a priori distribution on the global deformation parameters ...
  • Heddaya, Abdelsalam; Helal, Abdelsalam (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1997-12-04)
    Reliability and availability have long been considered twin system properties that could be enhanced by distribution. Paradoxically, the traditional definitions of these properties do not recognize the positive impact of ...
  • Gacs, Peter (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1998-01-05)
    In a probabilistic cellular automaton in which all local transitions have positive probability, the problem of keeping a bit of information for more than a constant number of steps is nontrivial, even in an infinite ...
  • Bestavros, Azer; Chen, Marina; Crovella, Mark; Heddaya, Abdelsalam; Sclaroff, Stan; Cowie, James (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1996-03-21)
    The exploding demand for services like the World Wide Web reflects the potential that is presented by globally distributed information systems. The number of WWW servers world-wide has doubled every 3 to 5 months since ...
  • Liu, Lifeng; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2001-06)
    Based on our previous work in deformable shape model-based object detection, a new method is proposed that uses index trees for organizing shape features to support content-based retrieval applications. In the proposed ...
  • Harfoush, Khaled; Bestavros, Azer; Byers, John (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-05-30)
    Current Internet transport protocols make end-to-end measurements and maintain per-connection state to regulate the use of shared network resources. When two or more such connections share a common endpoint, there is an ...
  • Harfoush, Khaled; Bestavros, Azer; Byers, John (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-01-08)
    ERRATA: We present corrections to Fact 3 and (as a consequence) to Lemma 1 of BUCS Technical Report BUCS-TR-2000-013 (also published in IEEE INCP'2000)[1]. These corrections result in slight changes to the formulae used ...
  • Hadjieleftheriou, Marios; Byers, John W.; Kollios, John (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-03-16)
    The data streaming model provides an attractive framework for one-pass summarization of massive data sets at a single observation point. However, in an environment where multiple data streams arrive at a set of distributed ...
  • Buzan, Dan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-04-23)
    This technical report presents a combined solution for two problems, one: tracking objects in 3D space and estimating their trajectories and second: computing the similarity between previously estimated trajectories and ...
  • Kwon, Gu-In; Byers, John W. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-07-01)
    We consider the problem of architecting a reliable content delivery system across an overlay network using TCP connections as the transport primitive. We first argue that natural designs based on store-and-forward principles ...
