SelfSimilarity in World Wide Web Traffic: Evidence and Possible Causes
, 1996
"... Recently the notion of selfsimilarity has been shown to apply to widearea and localarea network traffic. In this paper we examine the mechanisms that give rise to the selfsimilarity of network traffic. We present a hypothesized explanation for the possible selfsimilarity of traffic by using a p ..."

On the Plurality of Worlds
, 1986
"... David Lewis is one of the most influential philosophers of our age, and On the Plurality of Worlds is his magnum opus. OPW1 offers an extended development and defense of the hypothesis that there are many universes, things of the same kind as the universe in which we all live, move, and have our bei ..."

being. Lewis calls these universes ―worlds‖, deliberately recalling the notion of a ―possible world ‖ familiar from modal logic and the metaphysics of modality. The title invokes the thesis of the book: there are pluralities of worlds, things of the same kind as the world we inhabit, differing only
Graphs over Time: Densification Laws, Shrinking Diameters and Possible Explanations
, 2005
"... How do real graphs evolve over time? What are “normal” growth patterns in social, technological, and information networks? Many studies have discovered patterns in static graphs, identifying properties in a single snapshot of a large network, or in a very small number of snapshots; these include hea ..."

heavy tails for in and outdegree distributions, communities, smallworld phenomena, and others. However, given the lack of information about network evolution over long periods, it has been hard to convert these findings into statements about trends over time. Here we study a wide range of real graphs
GOLOG: A Logic Programming Language for Dynamic Domains
, 1994
"... This paper proposes a new logic programming language called GOLOG whose interpreter automatically maintains an explicit representation of the dynamic world being modeled, on the basis of user supplied axioms about the preconditions and effects of actions and the initial state of the world. This allo ..."

. This allows programs to reason about the state of the world and consider the effects of various possible courses of action before committing to a particular behavior. The net effect is that programs may be written at a much higher level of abstraction than is usually possible. The language appears well suited
Image denoising using a scale mixture of Gaussians in the wavelet domain
 IEEE TRANS IMAGE PROCESSING
, 2003
"... We describe a method for removing noise from digital images, based on a statistical model of the coefficients of an overcomplete multiscale oriented basis. Neighborhoods of coefficients at adjacent positions and scales are modeled as the product of two independent random variables: a Gaussian vecto ..."

Algebraic Graph Theory
, 2011
"... Algebraic graph theory comprises both the study of algebraic objects arising in connection with graphs, for example, automorphism groups of graphs along with the use of algebraic tools to establish interesting properties of combinatorial objects. One of the oldest themes in the area is the investiga ..."

is the investigation of the relation between properties of a graph and the spectrum of its adjacency matrix. A central topic and important source of tools is the theory of association schemes. An association scheme is, roughly speaking, a collection of graphs on a common vertex set which fit together in a highly
GPSLess Low Cost Outdoor Localization for Very Small Devices.
 IEEE Personal Communications Magazine,
, 2000
"... AbstractInstrumenting the physical world through large networks of wireless sensor nodes, particularly for applications like environmental monitoring of water and soil, requires that these nodes be very small, light, untethered and unobtrusive. The problem of localization, i.e., determining where ..."

RealTime Systems
, 2000
"... Collision avoidance is an important topic in multirobot systems. Existing multirobot pathfinding approaches ignore sideswipe collisions among robots (i.e., only consider the collision which two agents try to occupy the same node during the same timestep) [1, 3, 4], and allow diagonal move between ..."

between two adjacent nodes (e.g., Figure 1(b)). However, in many real world applications, sideswipe collisions may also block robots ’ movements or cause deadlocks. For example, as shown in Figure 1, if the size of two robots is as big as the grid size they occupied, collisions will happen not only
Tandem repeats finder: a program to analyze DNA sequences
, 1999
"... A tandem repeat in DNA is two or more contiguous, approximate copies of a pattern of nucleotides. Tandem repeats have been shown to cause human disease, may play a variety of regulatory and evolutionary roles and are important laboratory and analytic tools. Extensive knowledge about pattern size, co ..."
