Identifying multiscale statistical models using the wavelet transform
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1991)
Hybrid construction of a 10MHz DC-DC converter for distributed power systems
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1989)
A dual detector optical heterodyne receiver for local oscillator noise suppression
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1985)
Learning control of bipedal dynamic walking robots with neural networks
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
Stability and robustness are two important performance requirements for a dynamic walking robot. Learning and adaptation can improve stability and robustness. This thesis explores such an adaptation capability through the ...
Efficient silicon micro-reactors for thermophotovoltaic applications
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) systems passively generate electricity from the combustion of fuel. Although TPV conversion systems have advantages, they suffer from low efficiency. This thesis investigates different ways to ...
The estimation of traffic variables and detection of incidents using presence detector data.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1978)
Complete VLSI implementation of improved low complexity chase Reed-Solomon decoders
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
This thesis presents a complete VLSI design of improved low complexity chase (LCC) decoders for Reed-Solomon (RS) codes. This is the first attempt in published research that implements LCC decoders at the circuit level. ...
Design and fabrication of a MEMS-array pressure sensor system for passive underwater navigation inspired by the lateral line
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
An object within a fluid flow generates local pressure variations that are unique and characteristic to the object's shape and size. For example, a three-dimensional object or a wall-like obstacle obstructs flow and creates ...
Parametric inversion from well log data : a performance and robustness analysis
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
