  • Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2006-10)
    A key goal of computational neuroscience is to link brain mechanisms to behavioral functions. The present article describes recent progress towards explaining how laminar neocortical circuits give rise to biological ...
  • Gabay, Yarom; Kfoury, Assaf J. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-12-15)
    Weak references provide the programmer with limited control over the process of memory management. By using them, a programmer can make decisions based on previous actions that are taken by the garbage collector. Although ...
  • Wu, Zheng; Hristov, Nickolay I.; Hedrick, Tyson L.; Kunz, Thomas H.; Betke, Margrit (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009-09)
    We propose a multi-object multi-camera framework for tracking large numbers of tightly-spaced objects that rapidly move in three dimensions. We formulate the problem of finding correspondences across multiple views as a ...
  • Tian, Tai-Peng; Li, Rui; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-07-28)
    Particle filtering is a popular method used in systems for tracking human body pose in video. One key difficulty in using particle filtering is caused by the curse of dimensionality: generally a very large number of particles ...
  • Wu, Zheng; Hristov, Nickolay; Swartz, Sharon; Kunz, Thomas; Betke, Margrit (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-09-06)
    We developed two methods for tracking multiple objects using several camera views. The methods use the Multiple Hypothesis Tracking (MHT) framework to solve both the across-view data association problem (i.e., finding ...
  • Londoño, Jorge; Bestavros, Azer; Laoutaris, Nikolaos (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009-07-29)
    We propose Trade & Cap (T&C), an economics-inspired mechanism that incentivizes users to voluntarily coordinate their consumption of the bandwidth of a shared resource (e.g., a DSLAM link) so as to converge on what they ...
  • Duarte, Fernando; Mattos, Bernardo; Bestavros, Azer; Almeida, Virgilio; Almeida, Jussara (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-12-15)
    We present a thorough characterization of the access patterns in blogspace -- a fast-growing constituent of the content available through the Internet -- which comprises a rich interconnected web of blog postings and ...
  • Rosales, Rómer; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1999-03-09)
    A combined 2D, 3D approach is presented that allows for robust tracking of moving people and recognition of actions. It is assumed that the system observes multiple moving objects via a single, uncalibrated video camera. ...
  • Martin, Michael (The New Zealand Association of Rationalists and Humanists, 1996-09)
  • Gelfand, Yevgeniy; Rodriguez, Alfredo; Benson, Gary (Oxford University Press, 2006-12-14)
    Tandem repeats in DNA have been under intensive study for many years, first, as a consequence of their usefulness as genomic markers and DNA fingerprints and more recently as their role in human disease and regulatory ...
  • Murphy, Kevin F.; Adams, Rhys M.; Wang, Xiao; Balázsi, Gábor; Collins, James J. (Oxford University Press, 2010-03-08)
    Synthetic gene networks can be used to control gene expression and cellular phenotypes in a variety of applications. In many instances, however, such networks can behave unreliably due to gene expression noise. Accordingly, ...
  • Samz, Charles (International Center for East Asian Archaeology and Cultural History, Boston University, 1971)
  • Sullivan, James C.; Wolenski, Francis S.; Reitzel, Adam M.; French, Courtney E.; Traylor-Knowles, Nikki; Gilmore, Thomas D.; Finnerty, John R. (Public Library of Science, 2009-10-6)
    BACKGROUND. NF-κB is an evolutionarily conserved transcription factor that controls the expression of genes involved in many key organismal processes, including innate immunity, development, and stress responses. NF-κB ...
  • Jacobs, J. Pieter; Bullock, Daniel (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1997-10)
    Prior reports indicated a non-linear increase in key overlap times (KOTs) as tempo slows for scales/arpeggios performed at internote intervals (INIs) of I00-1000 ms. Simulations illustrate that this function can be explained ...
  • Medina, A.; Salamatian, K.; Taft, N.; Matta, I.; Diot, C. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-03-01)
    Accurate knowledge of traffic demands in a communication network enables or enhances a variety of traffic engineering and network management tasks of paramount importance for operational networks. Directly measuring a ...
  • Londoño, Jorge M.; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2008-07-01)
    The advent of virtualization and cloud computing technologies necessitates the development of effective mechanisms for the estimation and reservation of resources needed by content providers to deliver large numbers of ...
  • Wells, J.B. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1993-08-01)
    We consider the problems of typability[1] and type checking[2] in the Girard/Reynolds second-order polymorphic typed λ-calculus, for which we use the short name "System F" and which we use in the "Curry style" where types ...
  • Wells, J.B. (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1996-03-09)
    System F is the well-known polymorphically-typed λ-calculus with universal quantifiers ("∀"). F+η is System F extended with the eta rule, which says that if term M can be given type τ and M η-reduces to N, then N can also ...
  • Bestavros, Azer; Bradley, Adam D.; Kfoury, Assaf J.; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-05-01)
    The heterogeneity and open nature of network systems make analysis of compositions of components quite challenging, making the design and implementation of robust network services largely inaccessible to the average ...
  • Lapets, Andrei; Levin, Alex; Parkes, David (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2008-10-09)
    We first introduce a very simple typed language for expressing allocation algorithms that allows automatic verification that an algorithm is monotonic and therefore truthful. The analysis of truthfulness is accomplished ...
