PROBABILITY INEQUALITIES FOR SUMS OF BOUNDED RANDOM VARIABLES
, 1962
"... Upper bounds are derived for the probability that the sum S of n independent random variables exceeds its mean ES by a positive number nt. It is assumed that the range of each summand of S is bounded or bounded above. The bounds for Pr(SES> nt) depend only on the endpoints of the ranges of the s ..."

Expected Time Bounds for Selection
, 1975
"... A new selection algorithm is presented which is shown to be very efficient on the average, both theoretically and practically. The number of comparisons used to select the ith smallest of n numbers is n q min(i,ni) q o(n). A lower bound within 9 percent of the above formula is also derived. ..."

OBBTree: A hierarchical structure for rapid interference detection
 PROC. ACM SIGGRAPH, 171â€“180
, 1996
"... We present a data structure and an algorithm for efficient and exact interference detection amongst complex models undergoing rigid motion. The algorithm is applicable to all general polygonal and curved models. It precomputes a hierarchical representation of models using tightfitting oriented bo ..."

The dynamic behavior of a data dissemination protocol for network programming at scale
 In Proceedings of the Second International Conferences on Embedded Network Sensor Systems (SenSys
"... To support network programming, we present Deluge, a reliable data dissemination protocol for propagating large data objects from one or more source nodes to many other nodes over a multihop, wireless sensor network. Deluge builds from prior work in densityaware, epidemic maintenance protocols. Usi ..."

for dissemination are inherently lower than that for single path propagation. It appears very hard to significantly improve upon the rate obtained by Deluge and we identify establishing a tight lower bound as an open problem.
Time, Clocks, and the Ordering of Events in a Distributed System
, 1978
"... The concept of one event happening before another in a distributed system is examined, and is shown to define a partial ordering of the events. A distributed algorithm is given for synchronizing a system of logical clocks which can be used to totally order the events. The use of the total ordering i ..."

is illustrated with a method for solving synchronization problems. The algorithm is then specialized for synchronizing physical clocks, and a bound is derived on how far out of synchrony the clocks can become.
Worstcase equilibria
 IN PROCEEDINGS OF THE 16TH ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM ON THEORETICAL ASPECTS OF COMPUTER SCIENCE
, 1999
"... In a system in which noncooperative agents share a common resource, we propose the ratio between the worst possible Nash equilibrium and the social optimum as a measure of the effectiveness of the system. Deriving upper and lower bounds for this ratio in a model in which several agents share a ver ..."

Convex Position Estimation in Wireless Sensor Networks
"... A method for estimating unknown node positions in a sensor network based exclusively on connectivityinduced constraints is described. Known peertopeer communication in the network is modeled as a set of geometric constraints on the node positions. The global solution of a feasibility problem fo ..."

for these constraints yields estimates for the unknown positions of the nodes in the network. Providing that the constraints are tight enough, simulation illustrates that this estimate becomes close to the actual node positions. Additionally, a method for placing rectangular bounds around the possible positions for all
Theoretical improvements in algorithmic efficiency for network flow problems

"... This paper presents new algorithms for the maximum flow problem, the Hitchcock transportation problem, and the general minimumcost flow problem. Upper bounds on ... the numbers of steps in these algorithms are derived, and are shown to compale favorably with upper bounds on the numbers of steps req ..."

Semantic similarity based on corpus statistics and lexical taxonomy
 Proc of 10th International Conference on Research in Computational Linguistics, ROCLINGâ€™97
, 1997
"... This paper presents a new approach for measuring semantic similarity/distance between words and concepts. It combines a lexical taxonomy structure with corpus statistical information so that the semantic distance between nodes in the semantic space constructed by the taxonomy can be better quantifie ..."
