  • Cheung, Alvin; Madden, Samuel; Solar-Lezama, Armando (2014-04-14)
    Many web applications store persistent data in databases. During execution, such applications spend a significant amount of time communicating with the database for retrieval and storing of persistent data over the network. ...
  • Agarwal, Anant; Santambrogio, Marco D.; Wingate, David; Eastep, Jonathan (2009-11-09)
    As multicore processors become increasingly prevalent, system complexity is skyrocketing. The advent of the asymmetric multicore compounds this -- it is no longer practical for an average programmer to balance the system ...
  • Chiesa, Alessandro; Micali, Silvio; Zhu, Zeyuan Allen (2012-09-07)
    We provide an optimal probabilistic mechanism for maximizing social welfare in single-good auctions when each player does not know his true valuation for the good, but only a set of valuations that is guaranteed to include ...
  • Jakubczak, Szymon; Katabi, Dina (2011-02-15)
    Video broadcast and mobile video challenge the conventional wireless design. In broadcast and mobile scenarios the bit rate supported by the channel differs across receivers and varies quickly over time. The conventional ...
  • Katabi, Dina; Rahul, Hariharan; Jakubczak, Szymon (2009-02-07)
    The main challenge in wireless video multicast is to scalably serve multiple receivers who have different channel characteristics. Current wireless transmission schemes, however, cannot support smooth degradation. Specifically, ...
  • Jamieson, Kyle (2008-06-03)
    At ever-increasing rates, we are using wireless systems to communicatewith others and retrieve content of interest to us. Current wirelesstechnologies such as WiFi or Zigbee use forward error correction todrive bit error ...
  • Boyd-Wickizer, Silas; Kaashoek, M. Frans; Morris, Robert; Zeldovich, Nickolai (2011-06-28)
    Multicore chips will have large amounts of fast on-chip cache memory, along with relatively slow DRAM interfaces. The on-chip cache memory, however, will be fragmented and spread over the chip; this distributed arrangement ...
  • Caponnetto, Andrea; Rakhlin, Alexander (2005-05-17)
    We study properties of algorithms which minimize (or almost minimize) empirical error over a Donsker class of functions. We show that the L2-diameter of the set of almost-minimizers is converging to zero in probability. ...
  • Long, Fan; Sidiroglou-Douskos, Stelios; Kim, Deokhwan; Rinard, Martin (2013-08-06)
    We present a system, SIFT, for generating input filters that nullify integer overflow errors associated with critical program sites such as memory allocation or block copy sites. SIFT uses a static program analysis to ...
  • Berinde, Radu; Indyk, Piotr (2008-01-10)
    We consider the approximate sparse recovery problem, where the goal is to (approximately) recover a high-dimensional vector x from its lower-dimensional sketch Ax. A popular way of performing this recovery is by finding ...
  • Theocharous, Georgios; Mahadevan, Sridhar; Kaelbling, Leslie Pack (2005-09-27)
    Partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs) are a well studied paradigm for programming autonomous robots, where the robot sequentially chooses actions to achieve long term goals efficiently. Unfortunately, ...
  • Feizi, Soheil; Quon, Gerald; Medard, Muriel; Kellis, Manolis; Jadbabaie, Ali (2015-02-18)
    Network alignment refers to the problem of finding a bijective mapping across vertices of two or more graphs to maximize the number of overlapping edges and/or to minimize the number of mismatched interactions across ...
  • Feamster, Nick; Johari, Ramesh; Balakrishnan, Hari (2005-02-08)
    Thousands of competing autonomous systems (ASes) mustcooperate with each other to provide global Internet connectivity.These ASes encode various economic, business,and performance decisions in their routing policies. The ...
  • Long, Fan; Rinard, Martin (2015-03-11)
    We present SPR, a new program repair system that uses condition synthesis to instantiate transformation schemas to repair program defects. SPR s staged repair strategy combines a rich space of potential repairs with a ...
  • Hansen, Richard E. (2007-06-21)
    Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks can easily cripple victim hosts or networks, yet effective defenses remain elusive. Normal anycast can be used to force the diffusion of attack traffic over a group of several ...
  • Nikolova, Evdokia (2008-09-13)
    We consider general combinatorial optimization problems that can be formulated as minimizing the weight of a feasible solution wT x over an arbitrary feasible set. For these problems we describe a broad class of corresponding ...
  • Tenenbaum, Joshua B.; Jonas, Eric M.; Mansinghka, Vikash K. (2008-11-24)
    We introduce combinational stochastic logic, an abstraction that generalizes deterministic digital circuit design (based on Boolean logic gates) to the probabilistic setting. We show how this logic can be combined with ...
  • Censor-Hillel, Keren; Gilbert, Seth; Kuhn, Fabian; Lynch, Nancy; Newport, Calvin (2011-12-22)
    In this paper we study the problem of building a connected dominating set with constant degree (CCDS) in the dual graph radio network model. This model includes two types of links: reliable links, which always deliver ...
  • Lepinski, Matthew; Micali, Silvio (2005-11-02)
    In their paper, "Rational Secure Computation and Ideal Mechanism Design," Izmalkov, Lepinski and Micali show that any one-shot mediated game can be simulated by the players themselves, without the help of a trusted mediator, ...
  • Zadimoghaddam, Morteza; Hajiaghayi, MohammadTaghi; Bateni, MohammadHossein (2010-02-01)
    Online auction is an essence of many modern markets, particularly networked markets, in which information about goods, agents, and outcomes is revealed over a period of time, and the agents must make irrevocable decisions ...
