151 TWEAK: A three-dimensional toolkit and modeling system using snapping and constraintsThe goal of this thesis is to provide a simple and intuitive user interface to a three-dimensional (3D) Computer Aided Design system. The interactive modeling system described here was built to demonstrate the utility of this user interface. The four main parts of the system are discussed.Tweak; snapping; constraint; interactive modeling system; DI-3D graphics library1996-12
152 The A3000: An asynchronous version of the R3000This thesis presents the architectural design and implementation of an N-stage Self-Timed RISC processor based on a subset of the MIPS R3000. The goal is to lay the ground work to show it will be possible in the future to build an asynchoronous pipelined RISC processor that has the chance to to comm...A3000; asynchronous; computers1995-03
153 Concurrent scheme, a language for concurrent symbolic computingThis research addresses a portion of the "software problem," by proposing language constructs to extend the Lisp class of computer language commonly used for symbolic computing. As a representative of the class of Lisp-like languages, the Scheme dialect will be used throughout this research.computer language; symbolic computing; concurrent processing1991-05
154 High-speed conterflow-clocked pipelining illustrated on the design of subband vector quantizatizer chipsThis dissertation introduces Counterflow-Clocked (C2) pipelining and discusses its usefulness and limitations to build large, high speed VLSI chips. It also presents the design of an image compression chip set to implement subband vector quantization that can handle HDTV data rates with reasonable V...VLSI chips; counterflow-clocked pipelining; computers1995-12
155 A front end user interface to a geometric modelling systemThis thesis examines methods for designing effective user interfaces. A particular type of computer system, an interactive geometric modelling system, is investigated with respect to the interface.1987-12
156 Scientific visualization for finite element analysis data setsThe research is focused on developing new techniques for visualizing FEA data sets. In this thesis, new parallel volume rendering algorithms are outlined to speed up scalar field visualization. Strreamlines, streamribbons and streamtubes are the most fundamental tools for exploring vector field data...finite element analysis; FEA; computers; algorithms1996-08
157 The dynamic expansion of class hierarchyThis dissertation focuses on dynamic expansion of the class hierarchy of programs written in the C++ programming language.C++; dynamic expansion; program class hierarchy; computers1995-08
158 Seqwarp: A low-cost linear systolic array for biological sequence comparisonThis thesis involved the design, implementation, and testing of Seqwarp, a linear systolic array capable of performing biological sequence comparison, using a revised Smith-Waterman dynamic programming algorithm. Through the use of Seqwarp, search and comparison problems equivalent to those performe...Seqwarp; biological computation; computers; biological sequence comparison1991-08
159 The use of inverse rendering in lighting designThis dissertation presents an inverse rendering approach for designing the illumination in an environment using optimization techniques applied to a radiosity based image synthesis system.image synthesis system; radiosity; inverse rendering; designing illumination; computers; radioptimization1995-06
160 Efficient evaluation of normal order through strictness informationNormal order functional languages (NOFLs) offer conceptual simplicity, expressive power and attractiveness for parallel execution. In NOFLs expressions are represented in a graphical form and transformed to the final answer using graph transformation rules. Until the G-machine project in Sweden, imp...NOFL; strictness analysis; computers1987-03
