Linear Processes Under Vanishing Communications - The Consensus Problem
In this report, we revisit the classical multi-agent distributed consensus problem under the dropping of the general assumption that the existence of a connection between agent implies weights uniformly bounded away from ...
Co-optimization of TSV assignment and micro-channel placement for 3D-ICs
The three dimensional circuit (3D-IC) brings forth new challenges to physical design such as allocation and management of through-silicon-vias (TSVs). Meanwhile, the thermal issues in 3D-IC becomes significant necessitating ...
Online Supplement to `Efficient Simulation Resource Sharing and Allocation for Selecting the Best'
This is the online supplement to the article by the same authors, "Efficient Simulation Resource Sharing and Allocation for Selecting the Best," published in the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control.
A performance comparison between two consensus-based distributed optimization algorithms
In this paper we address the problem of multi-agent optimization for convex functions expressible as sums of convex functions. Each agent has access to only one function in the sum and can use only local information to ...
Producing Reliable Full-System Simulation Results: A Case Study of CMP with Very Large Caches
The greater detail and improved realism of full-system architecture simulation makes it a valuable computer architecture design tool. However, its unique characteristics introduce new sources of simulation variability which ...
Compositional Analysis of Dynamic Bayesian Networks and Applications to CPS
Dynamic Bayesian networks (DBNs) can be effectively used to model various problems in complex dynamic systems. We perform an empirical investigation on compositional analysis of DBNs using abstraction. In static systems ...
REU: Improving straight line travel in a miniature wheeled robot
The TinyTeRP is a miniature robotics platform with modular sensing capabilities. Prior generations of the TinyTeRP have experienced various problems in assembly process, materials selection, and their fundamental ...
Optimizing Urgent Material Delivery by Maximizing Inventory Slack
Motivated by the need to create plans for delivering medication quickly during a public health emergency, this paper formulates the Inventory Slack Routing Problem. The planning goal is to deliver material as early as ...
ONTOLOGY-ENABLED TRACEABILITY MODELS FOR ENGINEERING SYSTEMS DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT
This thesis describes new models and a system for satisfying requirements, and an architectural framework for linking discipline-specific dependencies through inter- action relationships at the ontology (or meta-model) ...
Refresh Matters: Energy and Performance Analysis of Large Last-Level Cache Built with Gain Cell Embedded DRAM
Embedded dynamic random access memories (eDRAMs) have high density and low leakage futures, making them suitable for implementing large last-level caches (L3Cs). However, refresh operations are required, which negatively ...
