  • Dolev, Shlomi; Lahiani, Limor; Lynch, Nancy; Nolte, Tina (2005-08-11)
    We present simple algorithms for achieving self-stabilizing locationmanagement and routing in mobile ad-hoc networks. While mobile clients maybe susceptible to corruption and stopping failures, mobile networks areoften ...
  • Torres-Jara, Eduardo (2007-03-02)
    This thesis presents an effective alternative to the traditionalapproach to robotic manipulation. In our approach, manipulation ismainly guided by tactile feedback as opposed to vision. Themotivation comes from the fact ...
  • Masiello, Elizabeth (2006-01-11)
    The sixteen-bit well-known port number is often overlooked as a network identifier in Internet communications. Its purpose at the most fundamental level is only to demultiplex flows of traffic. Several unintended uses of ...
  • Lam, Patrick; Zee, Karen; Kuncak, Viktor; Rinard, Martin (2007-10-31)
    Typestate systems allow the type of an object to change during its lifetime in the computation. Unlike standard type systems, they can enforce safety properties that depend on changing object states. We present a new, ...
  • Adelson, Edward H.; Torralba, Antonio; Fleming, Roland W. (2009-10-22)
  • Cadieu, Charles; Kouh, Minjoon; Riesenhuber, Maximilian; Poggio, Tomaso (2004-11-12)
    The computational processes in the intermediate stages of the ventral pathway responsible for visual object recognition are not well understood. A recent physiological study by A. Pasupathy and C. Connor in intermediate ...
  • Torralba, Antonio; Murphy, Kevin P.; Freeman, William T. (2004-04-14)
    We consider the problem of detecting a large number of different classes of objects in cluttered scenes. Traditional approaches require applying a battery of different classifiers to the image, at multiple locations and ...
  • Freeman, William T.; Torralba, Antonio; Yuen, Jenny; Liu, Ce (2010-05-08)
    While image alignment has been studied in different areas of computer vision for decades, aligning images depicting different scenes remains a challenging problem. Analogous to optical flow where an image is aligned to its ...
  • Kjolstad, Fredrik; Kamil, Shoaib; Ragan-Kelley, Jonathan; Levin, David I.W.; Sueda, Shinjiro; Chen, Desai; Vouga, Etienne; Kaufman, Danny M.; Kanwar, Gurtej; Matusik, Wojciech; Amarasinghe, Saman (2015-05-26)
    Using existing programming tools, writing high-performance simulation code is labor intensive and requires sacrificing readability and portability. The alternative is to prototype simulations in a high-level language like ...
  • Taylor, Christopher J. (2005-05-31)
    In this thesis we present LaSLAT, a sensor network algorithm thatsimultaneously localizes sensors, calibrates sensing hardware, andtracks unconstrained moving targets using only range measurementsbetween the sensors and ...
  • Taylor, Christopher; Rahimi, Ali; Bachrach, Jonathan; Shrobe, Howard (2005-04-26)
    We introduce Simultaneous Localization and Tracking (SLAT), the problem of tracking a target in a sensor network while simultaneously localizing and calibrating the nodes of the network. Our proposed solution, LaSLAT, ...
  • Katti, Sachin; Katabi, Dina; Puchala, Katarzyna (2005-08-15)
    Recent years have witnessed many proposals for anonymous routing in overlay peer-to-peer networks. The proposed protocols either expose the receiver and the message content, or require the overlay nodes to have public-private ...
  • 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. ...
