251 Anomalous pressure dependence of the structure factor in 1,4-polybutadiene melts: a molecular dynamics simulation studyNeutron scattering has shown the first diffraction peak in the structure factor of a 1,4-polybutadiene melt under compression to move to larger q values as expected but to decrease significantly in intensity. Simulations reveal that this behavior does not result from loss of structure in the polymer...Polymer melts; 1, 4-polybutadiene melts; Pressure; Structure factor2004-07
252 Antenna optimization for vehicular environmentsAbstract? This paper presents a multi-antenna optimization for communication in a Rockwell T-39 Sabreliner, a mid-size aircraft with a metallic body.

261 Arc and path consistency revisitedMackworth and Freuder have analyzed the time complexity of several constraint satisfaction algorithms [4]. We present here new algorithms for arc and path consistency and show that the arc consistency algorithm is optimal in time complexity and of the same order space complexity as the earlier algor...Arc consistency; Path consistency; Constraint satisfaction algorithms1985
262 Architecting efficient interconnects for large caches with CACTI 6.0Efficiently executing multithreaded applications on future multicores will require fast intercore communication. Most of this communication happens via reads and writes to large shared caches in the memory hierarchy. Microprocessor performance and power will be strongly influenced by the long inter...Interconnects; CACTI 6.0; Non-uniform cache architectures (NUCA)2008-01
263 Architectural synthesis of timed asynchronous systemsThis paper describes a new method for architectural synthesis of timed asynchronous systems. Due to the variable delays associated with asynchronous resources, implicit schedules are created by the addition of supplementary constraints between resources. Since the number of schedules grows exponenti...1999
264 Are the extrinsic muscles better suited for signaling joint angles or finger tip location?We used a biomechanical model of the human long finger to determine whether the extrinsic muscles are better suited for estimating the finger's joint angles or for estimating location of the finger tip. We found that two of the extrinsic muscles together could provide information sufficient to direc...Extrinsic muscles; Metacarpophalangeal joint; Biomechanical models1997
265 Artistic composition for image creationAltering the viewing parameters of a 3D object results in computer graphics images of varying quality. One aspect of image quality is the composition of the image. While the esthetic properties of an image are subjective, some heuristics used by artists to create images can be approximated quanti...Image creation; Image quality2000
266 Artistic vision: painterly rendering using computer vision techniquesWe present a method that takes a raster image as input and produces a painting-like image composed of strokes rather than pixels. Unlike previous automatic painting methods, we attempt to keep the number of brush-stroke small. This is accomplished by first segmenting the image into features, finding...Painting-like image; Raster image; Painterly rendering2000

272 Augmented CPU reservations: towards predictable execution on general-purpose operating systemsOne problem with performing soft real-time computations on general-purpose operating systems is that these OSs may spend significant amounts of time in the kernel instead of performing work on behalf of the application that is nominally scheduled: the OS effectively steals time from the running appl...2001-01-01
