79 Stevens, KennethA mathematical approach to a low power FFT architectureArchitecture and circuit design are the two most effective means of reducing power in CMOS VLSI. Mathematical manipulations have been applied to create a power efficient architecture of an FFT.

80 Mathews, V. John; Clark, Edward B.A mathematical basis for the application of the modified geometric method to maximum frequency estimationAbstract-The application of ultrasound in assessing the fetal cardiovascular system often requires the accurate estimation of maximum blood flow velocity waveforms using Doppler measurements. The modified geometric method estimates the maximum Doppler frequency as the frequency at which the vertica...2004

82 Blair, StevenA methodology for physical design automation for integrated opticsAdvancements in silicon photonics technology are enabling large scale integration of electro-optical circuits and systems. To fully exploit this potential, automated techniques for design space exploration and physical synthesis for integrated optics must be developed. This paper investigates how co...2012-01-01
83 Mathews, V. JohnA minimax approach for the joint design of acoustic crosstalk cancellation filtersAbstract-This paper presents a method for jointly designing immersive audio rendering filters for a single listener using loudspeakers. The filters for crosstalk cancellation are assumed to have finite impulse responses and are designed using the minimax criterion. In addition to the traditional At...2007
84 Weinstein, DavidA morphing algorithm for generating near optimal grids: applications in computational medicineWe apply morphing to t h e problem of generating the initial mesh for finite element simulations. This algorithm reduces mesh adaptation time by integrating physical and geometric constraints to provide a near optimal initial mesh. We apply this method to large-scale bioelectric field problems invol...Morphing algorithm; Bioelectric field problems1994
85 Subrahmanyam, P.A.A new approach to specifying and handling exceptionsAn operation generally exhibits different patterns of behavior over different parts of its domain. Depending upon the context, such behavior may either be conceived of as "normal" or as an "exception." Thus, the behavior of an operation Is quite naturally characterized by the set of partial operatio...Computer operations; Exceptions; Exception handling1980
86 Bruderlin, BeatA new approach to tolerance analysisTolerance analysis is seen as part of a more general problem, namely handling data with uncertainty. Uncertain geometric data arises when interpreting measured data, but also in solid modeling where floating point approximations are common, when representing design tolerances, or when dealing with l...Tolerance analysis1994
87 Mathews, V. JohnA new carrier frequency estimator for modem signalsABSTRACT A novel carrier frequency estimation scheme for a relatively broad class of voiceband data signals (modem signals) is presented in this paper. The class of signals being studied includes different types of phase-shift-keyed (PSK) and frequency-shift-keyed (FSK) signals. The frequency estim...1988
88 Kirby, Robert Michael II; Johnson, Christopher R.A new family of variational-form-based regularizers for reconstructing epicardial potentials from body-surface mappingWe propose a new family of regularizers for the inverse ECG problem, using a variational principle that underlies finite element approximation methods. As an alternative to traditional Tikhonov regularizers, the variational formulation has several advantages: 1)it enables a simple construction of ...2010
89 Cohen, ElaineA new local basis for designing with tensioned splinesRecently there has been a great deal of interest in the use of "tension" parameters to augment control mesh vertices as design handles for piecewise polynomials. A particular local cubic basis called p-splines, which has been termed a "generalization of B-splines", has been proposed as an appropriat...Tensioned splines1985
90 Mathews, V. JohnA new model of perceptual threshold functions for application in image compression systemsThis paper discusses the development of a perceptual threshold model for the human visual system. The perceptual threshold functions describe the levels of distortions present at each location in an image that human observers can not detect. Models of perceptual threshold functions are useful in ima...1995
91 Sikorski, KrisA note on optimal algorithms for fixed pointsWe present a constructive lemma that we believe will make possible the design of nearly optimal 0(dlog | ) cost algorithms for computing eresidual approximations to the fixed points of d-dimensional nonexpansive mappings with respect to the infinity norm. This lemma is a generalization of a two-...Fixed points; Constructive lemma2009

94 Sloan, Peter-PikeA painterly approach to human skinRendering convincing human figures is one of the unsolved goals of computer graphics. Previous work has concentrated on modeling physics of human skin. We have taken a different approach. We are exploring techniques used by artists, specifically artists who paint air-brushed portraits. Our goal is t...Human skin1999
