Algorithmic Composition as a Model of Creativity
(199612)““’There are two distinct types of creativity: the flash out of the blue (inspiration? genius?), and the process of incremental revisions (hard work). Not only are we years away from modeling the former, we do not even ... 
Analysis of Energy Reduction on Dynamic ScalingEnabled Systems
(IEEE, 200512)Dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) is a technique that varies the supply voltage and clock frequency, based on the computation load, to provide desired performance with the minimal amount of energy consumption. It has been ... 
Analysis of Watermarking Techniques for Graph Coloring Problem
(IEEE, 199811) 
An Analytical Model for Designing Memory Hierarchies
(199610)Memory hierarchies have long been studied by many means: system building, tracedriven simulation, and mathematical analysis. Yet little help is available for the system designer wishing to quickly size the different ... 
Analytical solution for the sidefringing fields of narrow beveled heads
(American Institue of Physics, 19970415)By using conical coordinates, exact analytical solutions for threedimensional sidefringing fields of recording heads that are beveled in the downtrack direction are found. These solutions are derived under the assumption ... 
Approaching the Maximum Energy Saving on Embedded Systems with Multiple Voltages
(IEEE, 200311)Dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) is arguably the most effective energy reduction technique. The multiplevoltage DVS systems, which can operate only at predetermined discrete voltages, are practical and have been well ... 
ARBITRATEANDMOVE PRIMITIVES FOR HIGH THROUGHPUT ONCHIP INTERCONNECTION NETWORKS
(IEEE, 200405)An nleaf pipelined balanced binary tree is used for arbitration of order and movement of data from n input ports to one output port. A novel arbitrateandmove primitive circuit for every node of the tree, which is ... 
The AssociativeSkew Clock Routing Problem
(IEEE, 199911)We introduce the associative skew clock routing problem, which seeks a clock routing tree such that zero skew is preserved only within identified groups of sinks. The associative skew problem is easier to address within ... 
BioBench: A Benchmark Suite of Bioinformatics Applications
(200503)Recent advances in bioinformatics and the significant increase in computational power available to researchers have made it possible to make better use of the vast amounts of genetic data that has been collected over the ... 
Cache Design for Embedded RealTime Systems
(19990630)Caches have long been a mechanism for speeding memory access and are popular in embedded hardware architectures from microcontrollers to corebased ASIC designs. However, caches are considered illsuited for embedded ... 
Can Cooling Technology Save ManyCore Parallel Programming from Its Programming Woes?
(20151016)This paper is advancing the following premise (henceforth, "vision"): that it is feasible to greatly enhance data movement in the short term, and do it in ways that would be both power efficient and pragmatic in the long ... 
A Case for Studying DRAM Issues at the System Level
(IEEE Micro, 200308)THE WIDENING GAP BETWEEN TODAY’S PROCESSOR AND MEMORY SPEEDS MAKES DRAM SUBSYSTEM DESIGN AN INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT PART OF COMPUTER SYSTEM DESIGN. IF THE DRAM RESEARCH COMMUNITY WOULD FOLLOW THE MICROPROCESSOR COMMUNITY’S ... 
CASPER: An Integrated EnergyDriven Approach for Task Graph Scheduling on Distributed Embedded Systems
(IEEE, 200507)For multiprocessor embedded systems, the dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) technique can be applied to scheduled applications for energy reduction. DVS utilizes slack in the schedule to slow down processes and save energy. ... 
A Combined Gate Replacement and Input Vector Control Approach for Leakage Current Reduction
(IEEE, 200602)Input vector control (IVC) is a popular technique for leakage power reduction. It utilizes the transistor stack effect in CMOS gates by applying a minimum leakage vector (MLV) to the primary inputs of combinational ... 
Complex life forms may arise from electrical processes
(20100624)There is still not an appealing and testable model to explain how singlecelled organisms, usually following fusion of male and female gametes, proceed to grow and evolve into multicellular, complexly differentiated ... 
Composing With Genetic Algorithms
(International Computer Music Association, 199509)Presented is an application of genetic algorithms to the problem of composing music, in which GAs are used to produce a set of data filters that identify acceptable material from the output of a stochastic music generator. ... 
Concurrency, Latency, or System Overhead: Which Has the Largest Impact on Uniprocessor DRAMSystem Performance?
(200106)Given a fixed CPU architecture and a fixed DRAM timing specification, there is still a large design space for a DRAM system organization. Parameters include the number of memory channels, the bandwidth of each channel, ... 
Currentcontrolled bistable domain configurations in Ni81Fe19 elements: An approach to magnetic memory devices
(American Institute of Physics, 20020729)The discovery of currentswitchable bistable remanent domain configurations on small ferromagnetic islands is reported. Rectangular NiFe islands with a thickness of 50 to 100 nm and lateral dimensions on the order of ...
