On the Equivalence Between Maximum Likelihood and Minimum Distance Decoding for Binary Contagion and Queue-Based Channels with Memory
We study the optimal maximum likelihood (ML) block decoding of general binary codes sent over two classes of binary additive noise channels with memory. Specifically, we consider the infinite and finite memory Polya contagion ...
The Kingston Police Data Collection Project: A Preliminary Report to the Kingston Police Services Board
The Kingston Police Data Collection Project was designed to gather information on the following research questions: are the police more likely to stop racial minority citizens than white citizens?; are racial minority ...
Towards Controlling Bucket Fill Factor in Robotic Excavation by Learning Admittance Control Setpoints
This paper investigates the extension of an admittance control scheme to- ward learning and adaptation of its setpoints to achieve controllable bucket fill factor for robotic excavation of fragmented rock. A previously ...
A Gap Method for Increasing the Sensitivity of Cantilever Biosensors
Dynamic-mode cantilever biosensors are an attractive technology for biological sensing. However, researchers are constantly seeking ways to increase their sensitivity, especially in liquids, in order to rapidly detect ...
Industrial-Scale Autonomous Wheeled-Vehicle Path Following by Combining Iterative Learning Control with Feedback Linearization
Abstract— This paper presents a path following method for autonomous wheeled vehicles that combines iterative learning control (ILC) with nonlinear feedback linearization (FBL) to provide anticipatory control action ...
Water-triggered spontaneous surface patterning in thin films of mexylaminotriazine molecular glasses
Surface patterning that occurs spontaneously during the formation of a thin film is a powerful tool for controlling film morphology at the nanoscale level because it avoids the need for further processing. However, one ...
Surface relief grating growth in thin films of mexylaminotriazinefunctionalized glass-forming azobenzene derivatives
Azobenzene-containing materials exhibit various photomechanical properties, including the formation of surface relief gratings (SRG) when irradiated with two interfering laser beams. In a recent study, a novel glass-forming ...
Ovarian Psycos: An Urban Cadence of Power and Precarity
Ovarian Psycos is about a new generation of fierce, unapologetic and feminist women of color from the Eastside of Los Angeles who confront injustice, build community, and redefine identity through a raucous, irreverently ...
On the Solutions of Interval Systems for Under-Constrained and Redundant Parallel Manipulators
For under-constrained and redundant parallel manipulators, the actuator inputs are studied with bounded variations in parameters and data. Problem is formulated within the context of force analysis. Discrete and analytical ...
