  • Grassl, Markus; Shor, Peter W.; Smith, Graeme; Smolin, John; Zeng, Bei (American Physical Society, 2009-05)
    We discuss the concept of generalized concatenated quantum codes. This generalized concatenation method provides a systematical way for constructing good quantum codes, both stabilizer codes and nonadditive codes. Using ...
  • Grassl, Markus; Zeng, Bei; Shor, Peter W. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    We show how good quantum error-correcting codes can be constructed using generalized concatenation. The inner codes are quantum codes, the outer codes can be linear or nonlinear classical codes. Many new good codes are ...
  • Georghiou, Angelos; Wiesemann, Wolfram; Kuhn, Daniel (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2014-05)
    Stochastic programming provides a versatile framework for decision-making under uncertainty, but the resulting optimization problems can be computationally demanding. It has recently been shown that primal and dual linear ...
  • Khan, Kamil A.; Barton, Paul I. (Springer US, 2014-03)
    Sensitivity analysis provides useful information for equation-solving, optimization, and post-optimality analysis. However, obtaining useful sensitivity information for systems with nonsmooth dynamic systems embedded is a ...
  • Demaine, Erik D.; Price, Gregory N. (Springer-Verlag, 2009-09)
    A convex surface that is flat everywhere but on finitely many smooth curves (or seams) and points is a seam form. We show that the only creases through the flat components of a seam form are either between vertices or ...
  • Iadecola, Thomas; Chamon, Claudio; Jackiw, Roman; Pi, So-Young (American Physical Society, 2013-09)
    Driven condensed matter systems consistently pose substantial challenges to theoretical understanding. Progress in the study of such systems has been achieved using the Floquet formalism, but certain aspects of this approach ...
  • Becker, Ulrich J.; Berges, P.; Burger, Joseph D.; Cai, Xudong; Capell, Michael H.; Clare, I.; Eppling, Frederic J.; Fisher, Peter H.; Forconi, G.; Galaktionov, Y.; Klimentov, A.; Koutsenko, Vladimir; Kunin, A.; Lebedev, Alexei; Paus, Christoph M. E.; Shoutko, V.; Steuer, M.; Ting, Samuel; Ting, S. M. (Springer-Verlag, 2011-10)
    We present results from a study of hadronic event structure in high energy e[superscript +]e[superscript −] interactions using the L3 detector at LEP. A new class of event shape distributions are measured at and above the ...
  • Yu, Xiangyao; Ren, Ling; Devadas, Srinivas; Fletcher, Christopher Wardlaw; van Dijk, Marten (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-11)
    This paper investigates secure ways to interact with tamper-resistant hardware leaking a strictly bounded amount of information. Architectural support for the interaction mechanisms is studied and performance implications ...
  • Dominguez-Garcia, A. D.; Schindall, Joel E.; Kassakian, John G. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-05)
    This paper proposes a fault coverage model for linear time-invariant (LTI) systems subject to uncertain input. A state-space representation, defined by the state-transition matrix, and the input matrix, is used to represent ...
  • Mistry, Karan Hemant; Lienhard, John H. (MDPI AG, 2013-05)
    Increasing global demand for fresh water is driving the development and implementation of a wide variety of seawater desalination technologies driven by different combinations of heat, work, and chemical energy. This paper ...
  • Gattami, Ather Said (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-01)
    We consider the problem of stochastic finite- and infinite-horizon linear quadratic control under power constraints. The calculations of the optimal control law can be done off-line as in the classical linear quadratic ...
  • Mason, J. K.; Schuh, Christopher A. (Elsevier B.V., 2009-07)
    A general formulation for the disorientation angle distribution function is derived. The derivation employs the hyperspherical harmonic expansion for orientation distributions, and an explicit solution is presented for ...
  • Hohm, Olaf; Hull, Chris; Zwiebach, Barton (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2010-08)
    The generalized metric is a T-duality covariant symmetric matrix constructed from the metric and two-form gauge field and arises in generalized geometry. We view it here as a metric on the doubled spacetime and use it ...
  • Giovannetti, Vittorio; Holevo, A. S.; Maccone, Lorenzo; Lloyd, Seth (IOP Publishing, 2010-10)
    A formulation of the generalized minimal output entropy conjecture for Gaussian channels is presented. It asserts that, for states with fixed input entropy, the minimal value of the output entropy of the channel (i.e. the ...
  • Ishimatsu, Takuto; de Weck, Olivier L.; Hoffman, Jeffrey A.; Ohkami, Yoshiaki; Shishko, Robert (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2015-10-19)
    Simple logistics strategies such as "carry-along" and Earth-based "resupply" were sufficient for past human space programs. Next-generation space logistics paradigms are expected to be more complex, involving multiple ...
  • Ricci, Nicola; Rhodes, Donna H.; Ross, Adam Michael (Elsevier, 2013-02)
    Due to the complex and highly dynamic contexts in which systems operate nowadays, it has become crucial that, early in the architecting phase, System Architects take into account options to be utilized throughout the ...
  • Giometto, Andrea; Altermatt, Florian; Maritan, Amos; Stocker, Roman; Rinaldo, Andrea (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2015-06)
    Phototaxis, the process through which motile organisms direct their swimming toward or away from light, is implicated in key ecological phenomena (including algal blooms and diel vertical migration) that shape the distribution, ...
  • Goyal, Vivek K.; Deshpande, Ajay A.; Sarma, Sanjay Emani (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-02)
    We address the optimal sensor arrangement problem, which is the determination of a geometric configuration of sensors such that the mean-squared error (MSE) in the estimation of an unknown trigonometric polynomial is ...
  • Hoffmann, Henry Christian; Maggio, Martina; Santambrogio, Marco D.; Leva, Alberto; Agarwal, Anant (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-09)
    A number of techniques have been proposed to provide runtime performance guarantees while minimizing power consumption. One drawback of existing approaches is that they work only on a fixed set of components (or actuators) ...
  • Reid, M. T. Homer; White, Jacob K.; Johnson, Steven G. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-12)
    We present a generic technique, automated by computer-algebra systems and available as open-source software, for efficient numerical evaluation of a large family of singular and nonsingular four-dimensional integrals over ...
