  • Lapets, Andrei (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-03-15)
    A problem is in the class NP when it is possible to compute in polynomial time that a given solution corresponds to a given problem instance. Those problems for which it is possible to compute in polynomial time a solution ...
  • Donnelly, Kevin; Kfoury, Assaf; Lapets, Andrei (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-03-15)
    Interdomain routing on the Internet is performed using route preference policies specified independently and arbitrarily by each autonomous system (AS) in the network. These policies are used in the border gateway protocol ...
  • Gabay, Yarom; Ocean, Michael J.; Kfoury, Assaf J.; Liu, Likai (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-02-06)
    Sensor applications in Sensoria [1] are expressed using STEP (Sensorium Task Execution Plan). SNAFU (Sensor-Net Applications as Functional Units) serves as a high-level sensor-programming language, which is compiled into ...
  • Rodeski, Vladimir; Mullally, William; Bellardine, Carissa; Lutchen, Kenneth; Betke, Margrit (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-07-07)
    A difficulty in lung image registration is accounting for changes in the size of the lungs due to inspiration. We propose two methods for computing a uniform scale parameter for use in lung image registration that account ...
  • Nagy, Sue; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1997-05-15)
    We propose and evaluate admission control mechanisms for ACCORD, an Admission Control and Capacity Overload management Real-time Database framework-an architecture and a transaction model-for hard deadline RTDB systems. ...
  • Crovella, Mark E.; Frangioso, Robert; Harchol-Balter, Mor (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1999-03-31)
    Under high loads, a Web server may be servicing many hundreds of connections concurrently. In traditional Web servers, the question of the order in which concurrent connections are serviced has been left to the operating ...
  • Papapetrou, Panagiotis (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-12-30)
    The problem of discovering frequent arrangements of temporal intervals is studied. It is assumed that the database consists of sequences of events, where an event occurs during a time-interval. The goal is to mine temporal ...
  • Isidoro, John; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-12-02)
    Space carving has emerged as a powerful method for multiview scene reconstruction. Although a wide variety of methods have been proposed, the quality of the reconstruction remains highly-dependent on the photometric ...
  • Guo, Liang; Crovella, Mark; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2001)
  • Itkis, Gene (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-02-11)
    We propose a new notion of cryptographic tamper evidence. A tamper-evident signature scheme provides an additional procedure Div which detects tampering: given two signatures, Div can determine whether one of them was ...
  • Bassem, Christine; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009-05-28)
    Routing protocols for ad-hoc networks assume that the nodes forming the network are either under a single authority, or else that they would be altruistically forwarding data for other nodes with no expectation of a return. ...
  • West, Richard; Wong, Gary (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-02-23)
    This paper is centered around the design of a thread- and memory-safe language, primarily for the compilation of application-specific services for extensible operating systems. We describe various issues that have influenced ...
  • Akram, Wajeeh; Tiberii, Laura; Betke, Margrit (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-05-11)
    Many people suffer from conditions that lead to deterioration of motor control and makes access to the computer using traditional input devices difficult. In particular, they may loose control of hand movement to the extent ...
  • Missimer, Eric; Epstein, Samuel; Magee, John; Betke, Margrit (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-08-12)
    Customizable Keyboard is an on-screen keyboard designed to be flexible and expandable. Instead of giving the user a keyboard layout Customizable Keyboard allows the user to create a layout that is accommodating to the ...
  • Rost, Stanislav; Byers, John; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-12-15)
    We propose a new technique for efficiently delivering popular content from information repositories with bounded file caches. Our strategy relies on the use of fast erasure codes (a.k.a. forward error correcting codes) to ...
  • Athitsos, Vassilis; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-04-01)
    Estimation of 3D hand pose is useful in many gesture recognition applications, ranging from human-computer interaction to automated recognition of sign languages. In this paper, 3D hand pose estimation is treated as a ...
  • Martin, David; Schulman, Andrew (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2002-01-11)
    The SafeWeb anonymizing system has been lauded by the press and loved by its users; self-described as "the most widely used online privacy service in the world," it served over 3,000,000 page views per day at its peak. ...
  • Considine, Jeffrey (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-04-01)
    The isomorphisms holding in all models of the simply typed lambda calculus with surjective and terminal objects are well studied - these models are exactly the Cartesian closed categories. Isomorphism of two simple types ...
  • Mattar, Karim; Matta, Ibrahim; Day, John; Ishakian, Vatche; Gursun, Gonca (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2008-07-12)
    Transport protocols are an integral part of the inter-process communication (IPC) service used by application processes to communicate over the network infrastructure. With almost 30 years of research on transport, one ...
  • Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1995-09-12)
    We describe a method for shape-based image database search that uses deformable prototypes to represent categories. Rather than directly comparing a candidate shape with all shape entries in the database, shapes are compared ...
