151 Accelerated 4-year bachelors/masters degree program in biomedical engineeringIn response to the need for providing advanced engineering education in a shorter time period than is currently possible by traditional curricula, we have created an Accelerated Dual Degree program in biomedical engineering. The purpose of this pilot program is to attract the brightest students, g...Accelerated; Dual-degrees; Education2002
152 Accelerated dual-degree BS/MS program - experience with the first three yearsWe have initiated a pilot program that accelerates the studies of a small group of highly qualified students early in their college careers and allows them to earn both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in about four years after starting college. It does this by introducing them early to res...Accelerated dual-degree program2004
153 Accelerated isosurface extraction in time-varying fieldsFor large time-varying data sets, memory and disk limitations can lower the performance of visualization applications. Algorithms and data structures must be explicitly designed to handle these data sets in order to achieve more interactive rates. The Temporal Branch-on-Need Octree (T-BON) extends t...Isosurfaces; Time-dependent scalar field visualization; Multiresolution methods; Octree; Bricking; Unstructured grid visualization; Out-of-core visualization2000
154 Achieving fast and exact hazard-free logic minimization of extended burst-mode gC finite state machinesAbstract This paper presents a new approach to two-level hazard-free logic minimization in the context of extended burst-mode finite state machine synthesis targeting generalized C-elements (gC).

156 Acoustic interneurons of fiddler and ghost crabsThe properties of acoustic interneurons in fiddler (Uca pugilalor and U. minax) and ghost (Ocvpade qucldrula) crabs are described, as revealed bv tests with pure tones. Three types of interneurons were present in all species: tonic, which fired for the duration of the stimulus; phasic, which fire...Acoustic crabs; Neural recording; Vibration reception1976
157 Acoustic signal processing based on the short-time spectrumThe frequency domain representation of a time signal afforded by the Fourier transform is a powerful tool in acoustic signal processing. The usefulness of this representation is rooted in the mechanisms of sound production and perception. Many sources of sound exhibit normal modes or natural frequen...Acoustic signal processing1976
158 Action potential classification with dual channel intrafascicular electrodesUsing recordings of peripheral nerve activity made with carbon fiber intrafascicular electrodes, we compared the performance of three different recording techniques (single channel, differential, and dual channel) and four different unit classification methods (linear discriminant analysis, temp...Carbon fiber intrafascicular electrodes; Dual channel recording1994
159 Active inspection and reverse engineeringWe propose a new design for inspection and reverse engineering environments. In particular, we investigate the use of discrete event dynamic systems (DEDS) to guide and control the active exploration and sensing of mechanical parts for industrial inspection and reverse engineering. We introduce dyn...Discrete event dynamic systems; DEDS; Industrial inspection1993
160 Acute peripheral nerve recording characteristics of polymer-based longitudinal intrafascicular electrodesWe examined the recording characteristics of two different types of polymer-based longitudinal intrafascicular electrodes (LIFEs) in peripheral nerve: single-stranded (s-polyLIFEs) and multistranded (m-polyLIFEs). Recordings were also made from Pt-Ir wire-based electrodes (PtIrLIFEs) as a control. T...Sciatic Nerve; Intrafascicular Electrodes, Peripheral Nerve Recording2004
161 Ada-to-silicon compiler study (Final Report 30 Jan 85 - 30 Jun 86)The vision of a system design environment in which both hardware and software components could be designed, tested, and executed was proffered by the late Dr. Elliott Organick1 in 1981. He was impressed by the objectiveness of Ada and the availability of an architecture (the Intel 432) which was sp...ADA language1986
162 Adaptation of the protein kinase filter paper assay to a 96-well microtiter format.The most widely used method for assaying protein kinase activities involves incorporation of radioactive phosphate into a protein or peptide substrate with subsequent binding or precipitaion of the radiolabeled substrate onto filter paper squares. We have adapted this assay for use with readily avai...Protein Kinase Activities; Filter Papers; Radioactive Phosphate1999-02-01
163 Adaptive algorithms for identifying recursive nonlinear systemsABSTRACT This paper presents two fast least-squares lattice algorithms for adaptive non-linear filters equipped with system models involving nonlinear feedback.

164 Adaptive bilinear predictorsThis paper considers an extended recursive least squares (RLS) adaptive bilinear predictor. It is shown that the extended RLS adaptive bilinear predictor is guaranteed to be stable in the sense that the time average of the squared a-posteriori prediction error signal is bounded whenever the input...1994
165 Adaptive filters requiring zero multiplicationsThis paper introduces an adaptive filter structure that requires zero multiplications for its implementations. The primary input signals are quantized using DPCM and the DPCM outputs are processed by the adaptive filter. The sign algorithm. We show that if the parameters are chosen properly, hardwar...1987
166 Adaptive gain processing to improve feedback cancellation in digital hearing aidsAdaptive filters are commonly used to cancel acoustic feedback in hearing aids.
