    • Ranks and Partial Cuts in Forward Hypergraphs 

      Sawilla, Reginald Elias (2011-05-02)
      Many real-world relations are networks that can be modelled with a kind of directed hypergraph named a forward hypergraph (F-graph). F-graphs capture the semantics of both conjunctive and disjunctive dependency relations. ...
    • Raptor: Sketching Video Games With a Tabletop Computer 

      Smith, J. David (2009-08-12)
      Game sketching is used to identify enjoyable designs for digital games without the expense of fully implementing them. This thesis presents Raptor, a novel tool for sketching games. Raptor shows how tabletop interaction ...
    • Reconstruction of Heterogeneous Scattering Media 

      Cecchetto, Benjamin
      A scattering medium is a material in which light does not travel in straight paths. The light travels a certain distance, changes direction, and has a chance of being absorbed by the medium. Three coefficients and a phase ...
    • Recovering software tuning parameters 

      Brake, Nevon (2008-07-08)
      Autonomic Computing is an approach to designing systems that are capable of self-management. Fundamental to the autonomic ideal is a software's awareness of and ability to tune parameters that affect metrics like performance ...
    • Recovery of Arthroscope Head Rotation From the Arthroscope Image 

      Balaketheeswaran, Sai (2015-05-04)
      An arthroscope consists of a shaft which is inserted into the patient and a camera head which can rotate about the shaft axis. In computer-assisted surgery that uses the tracked arthroscope, the angle of the camera head ...
    • Recruitment Algorithms for Vehicular Crowdsensing Networks 

      Campioni, Fabio
      Vehicular crowdsensing aims to utilize the plethora of onboard sensors and resources on smart vehicles to gather sensing data in a large coverage area. Due to vehicles’ predictable mobility, roadside service providers can ...
    • Relational Views of XML for the Semantic Web 

      Atre, Shruti (2007-10-01)
      The Semantic Web is the future of the Internet. It is the extension to the Internet in which information will be given well-defined meaning, enabling not only humans but also machines to find, share and combine information ...
    • Remote Multitouch: In-Air Pointing Techniques for Large Display Interactions 

      Banerjee, Amartya (2012-06-08)
      In this thesis we report on remote interaction techniques for horizontal and vertical large displays. For vertical large displays, we present MultiPoint, a set of perspective-based remote pointing techniques that allows ...
    • Resource Management in Multi-hop Cellular Networks 

      Tam, Yik Hung (2009-02-03)
      In recent years, mobile communications have become affordable and popular. High cellular capacity in terms of number of users and data-rates is in need. As the available frequency spectrums for mobile communications are ...
    • Resource-Aware Query Scheduling in Database Management Systems 

      Gruska, Natalie (2011-06-09)
      Database Management Systems (DBMSs) are an integral part of many applications. Web-based applications, such as e-commerce sites, are faced with highly variable workloads. The number of customers browsing and purchasing ...
    • Reverse Engineering of Temporal Gene Expression Data Using Dynamic Bayesian Networks And Evolutionary Search 

      Salehi, Maryam (2008-09-17)
      Capturing the mechanism of gene regulation in a living cell is essential to predict the behavior of cell in response to intercellular or extra cellular factors. Such prediction capability can potentially lead to development ...
    • Revisiting the Experimental Design Choices for Approaches for the Automated Retrieval of Duplicate Issue Reports 

      Rakha, Mohamed
      Issue tracking systems, such as Bugzilla, are commonly used to track reported bugs and change requests. Duplicate reports have been considered as a hindrance to developers and a drain on their resources. To avoid wasting ...
