      Russell, Brock (2014)
      X-ray astrophysics provides a great many opportunities to study astronomical structures with large energies or high temperatures. This dissertation will describe two such applications: the use of Swift X-ray Telescope (XRT) ...
    • X-ray Image Segmentation and An Internet-based Tool for Medical Validation 

      Cheng, Jing (2006-12-04)
      Segmentation of vertebrae in X-ray images is a difficult task that requires an effective segmentation procedure. Noise, poor image contrast, occlusions and shape variability are some of the challenges in many of the spine ...
    • X-RAY TIME AND SPECTRAL VARIABILITY AS PROBES OF ULTRALUMINOUS X-RAY SOURCES 

      PASHAM, DHEERAJ RANGA REDDY (2014)
      A long-standing debate in the field of ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs: luminosities > 3&times;10<super>39</super> ergs s<super>-1</super>) is whether these objects are powered by stellar-mass black holes (mass range of ...
    • X-Ray Vision: Creating an Inspiring Workplace for Library Staff with Hidden Disabilities

      According to the U.S. Bureau of Census for 2000; from 1991 to 2000, there were a growing number of workers who self-identified as having one or more disabilities. Since 2000, demographic changes tell us this trend is ...
    • XBUILD: Pre-processor for Finite Element Analysis of Steel Bridge Structures 

      Austin, Mark; Creighton, Steven L.; Albrecht, Pedro (1992)
      Historically, the lack of interactive pre-processors to describe tedious finite element models has hindered the use of the finite element method for bridge analysis. The work performed in the present study mitigates this ...
    • XJoin: Getting Fast Answers From Slow and Bursty Networks 

      Urhan, Tolga; Franklin, Michael J. (1999-02-26)
      The combination of increasingly ubiquitous Internet connectivity and advances in heterogeneous and semi-structured databases has the potential to enable database-style querying over data from sources distributed around ...
    • An XML Application-Based Interface to Developing Modular System Simulations 

      Weisflog, Jens (2008-01)
      We introduce a framework for the development of modular lumped and distributed parameter system models, the latter described by boundary value problems. The simulation of such systems requires careful analysis and a rigorous ...

      Weisflog, Jens (2008-01-25)
      We introduce a framework for the development of modular lumped and distributed parameter system models, the latter described by boundary value problems. The simulation of such systems requires careful analysis and a rigorous ...
    • An XML-Based Approach to Integrating Semiconductor Process Information 

      Chen, Jing; Adomaitis, Raymond A. (2002)
      This paper discusses the development of a Java and XML-based semiconductor process information system for experimental data archiving, processing, analysis, presentation and simulation. <p>The three-tier system architecture ...
    • XMT-M: A Scalable Decentralized Processor 

      Berkovich, Efraim; Nuzman, Joseph; Franklin, Manoj; Jacob, Bruce; Vishkin, Uzi (1999-10-09)
      A defining challenge for research in computer science and engineering has been the ongoing quest for reducing the completion time of a single computation task. Even outside the parallel processing communities, there is ...
    • XMTSim: A Simulator of the XMT Many-core Architecture 

      Keceli, Fuat; Vishkin, Uzi (2011)
      This paper documents the features and the design of XMTSim, the cycle-accurate simulator of the Explicit Multi-Threading (XMT) computer architecture. The Explicit Multi-Threading (XMT) is a general-purpose many-core ...
    • XSQ: A Streaming XPath Engine 

      Peng, Feng; Chawathe, Sudarshan S. (2003-08-01)
      We have implemented and released the XSQ system for evaluating XPath queries on streaming XML data. XSQ supports XPath features such as multiple predicates, closures, and aggregation, which pose interesting ...
