APPLICATIONS OF, AND ENHANCEMENTS TO, FINITE-DIFFERENCE-BASED SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS IN ELECTROMAGNETICS
We describe how the analytic field propagation (AFP) technique can be coupled with a total-field/scattered-field (TFSF) boundary to obtain a novel implementation of a "gen-eralized" total-field/scattered-field (G-TFSF) ...
Modeling and Rendering Fibrous Materials
This dissertation describes research and development that led to the creation of a novel method of modeling fibrous materials (focusing especially on wood) and construction of a proof-of-concept implementation.The initial ...
INVESTIGATING THE HUMAN BEHAVIOR SIDE OF BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Society is becoming increasingly aware of the impact that our lifestyle preferences have on energy usage and the environment. In this dissertation, we look more closely at the impact that human behavior has on energy ...
Computational approaches for the prediction of apicoplast-targeted proteins
Motivation:The cells of eukaryotic organisms contain subunits called organelles. The apicoplast is a unique organelle found in a group of parasites, known as Apicomplexa, that are responsible for a wide range of serious ...
A Collaborative Defense Framework Against DDoS Attacks in Networks
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks pose one of the most serious security threats to the Internet. In this work, we aimed to develop a collaborative defense framework against DDoS attacks in networks. We focus on ...
Towards Autonomous Management of Large-Scale Wireless Sensor Networks Utilizing Multi-Parent Recursive Area Hierarchies
Large scale, duty-cycled, wireless sensor networks distributed across a large geographic area have been proposed for applications ranging from anomaly detection to vehicle tracking. In order to support the requirements of ...
