  • Katti, Sachin Rajsekhar (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Wireless mesh networks promise cheap Internet access, easy deployment, and extended range. In their current form, however, these networks suffer from both limited throughput and low reliability; hence they cannot meet the ...
  • Lehman, April Rasala, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In the network coding problem, there are k commodities each with an associated message Mi, a set of sources that know Mi and a set of sinks that request Mi. Each edge in the graph may transmit any function of the messages. ...
  • Sergeev, Ivan A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis explores the use of network coding for anonymous broadcast. Network coding, the technique of transmitting or storing mixtures of messages rather than individual messages, can provide anonymity with its mixing ...
  • Lucani, Daniel Enrique (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Delay is a fundamental problem of data communication and networks, a problem that is not usually addressed in classical coding, information or networking theory. We focus on the general problem of delay challenged networks. ...
  • Kim, MinJi, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Wireless networks and communications promise to allow improved access to services and information, ubiquitous connectivity, and mobility. However, current wireless networks are not well-equipped to meet the high bandwidth ...
  • Kim, MinJi, M. Eng. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Network coding, which allows mixing of data at intermediate network nodes, is known to increase the throughput of networks. In particular, it is known that linear network coding in a crossbar switch can sustain traffic ...
  • Rezaee, Arman (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    In this thesis, we address the combination of three technologies in wireless broadcast networks: network coding, multi-packet reception (MPR) and feedback. We will primarily discuss the performance of a single-hop network, ...
  • Li, Xiaojing, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Containership operators in the U.S. are confronted with a number of problems in the way they make critical fleet allocation decisions to meet the increase of shippers' demands. Instead of the empirical approach, this ...
  • Gupta, Hitesh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    With the increasing complexities in supply chains and increasing global trade, integrated supply chain network design is utilized by the firms in order to reduce the overall cost while meeting the customer demand with ...
  • Ingco, Divinagracia I. (Divinagracia Ilagan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1989)
  • Jackman, John Daniel, III (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    StarLogo: The Next Generation aims to introduce students to programming. The StarLogo application is frequently used in a classroom setting, but the effectiveness of StarLogo is limited as long as students cannot interact ...
  • Rabiner, Wendi Beth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
  • Khadilkar, Harshad (Harshad Dilip) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The goal of this thesis is to develop a control strategy for airport operations that integrates the management of arrivals and departures. The strategy is based on four central ideas: (1) the objective of reducing aircraft ...
  • Nielsen, Erik, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Not long ago, China's environmental problems would have barely mattered beyond its borders. Now, while Chinese policy-makers have begun to tackle a wide range of domestic environmental challenges, the transboundary impact ...
  • Matias, J. Nathan (Jorge Nathan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis presents research on gender disparities in online news, followed with three open source designs that attempt to address those disparities. Open Gender Tracker is a platform that applies automated gender analysis ...
  • Abler, Todd A. (Todd Alan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1988)
  • Meyers, Carol, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    (cont.) We first address the complexity of finding an optimal minimum cost solution to a congestion game. We consider both network and general congestion games, and we examine several variants of the problem concerning the ...
  • Feizi, Soheil (Feizi-Khankandi) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    In this thesis, we consider different aspects of the functional compression problem. In functional compression, the computation of a function (or, some functions) of sources is desired at the receiver(s). The rate region ...
  • Scott, Shane P. (Shane Paul) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Under a charter from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the author participated in a study of the military's behavioral health system for the purpose of determining the means and effectiveness of that system for ...
