  • Mackin, Charles Edward (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This work presents a model for electrolyte-gated graphene field-effect transistors (EGFETs) that incorporates the effects of the double layer capacitance and the quantum capacitance of graphene. The model is validated ...
  • Dernoncourt, Franck (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Prediction studies on physiological signals are time-consuming: a typical study, even with a modest number of patients, usually takes from 6 to 12 months. In response we design a large-scale machine learning and analytics ...
  • Li, Jerry Zheng (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    High-performance concurrent priority queues are essential for applications such as task scheduling and discrete event simulation. Unfortunately, even the best performing implementations do not scale past a number of threads ...
  • Lee, Ji Young, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Competitive equilibrium provides a natural steady state for iterative combinatorial auctions that maximize social welfare, and therefore the first step in auction design is to establish its existence. Recent work by Baldwin ...
  • Pu, Yewen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    We present a framework for approximate inference that, given a factor graph and a subset of its variables, produces an approximate marginal distribution over these variables with bounds. The factors of the factor graph are ...
  • Zhang, Xuhong, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Given an inference problem, it is common that exact inference algorithms are computationally intractable and one has to resort to approximate inference algorithms. Monte Carlo methods, which rely on repeated sampling of ...
  • Hamed, Ezzeldin Omar Hussein (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Despite the rapid growth of next-generation cellular networks, researchers and end users today have limited visibility into the performance and problems of these networks. As LTE deployments move towards femto and pico ...
  • Achour, Sara (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The increasing prominence of energy consumption as a first-order concern in contemporary computing systems has motivated the design of energy-efficient approximate computing platforms. These computing platforms feature ...
  • Netravali, Ravi Arun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis first presents a measurement toolkit, Mahimahi, that records websites and replays them under emulated network conditions. Mahimahi improves on prior record-and-replay frameworks by emulating the multi-origin ...
  • Sakakibara, Reyu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The nitrogen vacancy (NV) color center in diamond has been used to sense environmental variables such as temperature and electric and magnetic fields. Most sensing protocols depend on the optically detectable magnetic ...
  • Najafi, Faraz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) are becoming increasingly popular for applications in quantum information and long-distance communication. While the detection efficiency of SNSPDs has significantly ...
  • Perez De Rosso, Santiago (Santiago Nicolas) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    It is commonly asserted that the success of a software development project, and the usability of the final product, depend on the quality of the concepts that underlie its design. Yet this hypothesis has not been systematically ...
  • Shugrina, Maria D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis addresses the problem of allowing casual users to customize the design of 3D printable objects while maintaining their validity. This work defines Fab Form as a representation formalizing the requirements for ...
  • Yu, Xiangyao (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Computer architectures are moving towards an era dominated by many-core machines with dozens or even hundreds of cores on a single chip. This unprecedented level of on-chip parallelism introduces a new dimension to scalability ...
  • Bylinskii, Zoya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Previous studies have identified that images carry the attribute of memorability, a predictive value of whether a novel image will be later remembered or forgotten. In this thesis we investigate the interplay between ...
  • Dane, Andrew E. (Andrew Edward) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    DC reactive magnetron sputtering was used to deposit few-nanometer-thick films of niobium nitride for fabrication of superconducting devices. Over 1000 samples were deposited on a variety of substrates, under various chamber ...
  • Ghazi, Badih (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Random (dv, dc)-regular LDPC codes (where each variable is involved in d, parity checks and each parity check involves d, variables) are well-known to achieve the Shannon capacity of the binary symmetric channel (for ...
  • Virza, Madars (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    We present a proof system that allows efficient verification of NP statements, given proofs produced by an untrusted yet computationally-bounded prover. Our system is publicly verifiable: after a trusted third-party has ...
  • Tomovich, Michael S. (Michael Stephen) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    A doubly fed machine for propulsion applications is proposed, which, given the presence of AC and DC power sources, can be utilized in order to improve efficiency, weight, volume, and sizing of the rotor power electronics. ...
  • Lu, Lu, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The off-line calibration is a crucial step for the successful application of Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA) models in transportation planning and real time traffic management. While traditional approaches focus on the ...
