ON SMALL INTERVALS CONTAINING PRIMES
, 908
"... Abstract. Let p be an odd prime, such that pn < p/2 < pn+1, where pn is the nth prime. We study the following question: with what probability does there exist a prime in the interval (p, 2pn+1)? After the strong definition of the probability with help of the Ramanujan primes ([11], [12])and t ..."

In this paper we present two protocols for asynchronous Byzantine Quorum Systems (BQS) built on top of reliable channelsone for selfverifying data and the other for any data. Our protocols tolerate Byzantine failures with fewer servers than existing solutions by eliminating nonessential work in the write protocol and by using read and write quorums of different sizes. Since engineering a reliable network layer on an unreliable network is difficult, two other possibilities must be explored. The first is to strengthen the model by allowing synchronous networks that use timeouts to identify failed links or machines. We consider running synchronous and asynchronous Byzantine Quorum protocols over synchronous networks and conclude that, surprisingly, "selftiming" asynchronous Byzantine protocols may offer significant advantages for many synchronous networks when network timeouts are long. We show how to extend an existing Byzantine Quorum protocol to eliminate its dependency on reliable networking and to handle message loss and retransmission explicitly.
GPSless Low Cost Outdoor Localization For Very Small Devices
, 2000
"... Instrumenting 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 a given no ..."

"... Abstract. Let p be an odd prime, such that pn < p/2 < pn+1, where pn is the nth prime. We study the following question: with what probability P there exists a prime in the interval (p, 2pn+1)? We show, that for p tends to the infinity, P ≥ 1 2 (1−ε) and conjecture that P ≤ ..."

A Practical Guide to Wavelet Analysis
, 1998
"... A practical stepbystep guide to wavelet analysis is given, with examples taken from time series of the El Nio Southern Oscillation (ENSO). The guide includes a comparison to the windowed Fourier transform, the choice of an appropriate wavelet basis function, edge effects due to finitelength t ..."

Empirical formulas are given for the effect of smoothing on significance levels and confidence intervals. Extensions to wavelet analysis such as filtering, the power Hovmller, cross
Software pipelining: An effective scheduling technique for VLIW machines
, 1988
"... This paper shows that software pipelining is an effective and viable scheduling technique for VLIW processors. In software pipelining, iterations of a loop in the source program are continuously initiated at constant intervals, before the preceding iterations complete. The advantage of software pipe ..."

The Lifting Scheme: A Construction Of Second Generation Wavelets
, 1997
"... . We present the lifting scheme, a simple construction of second generation wavelets, wavelets that are not necessarily translates and dilates of one fixed function. Such wavelets can be adapted to intervals, domains, surfaces, weights, and irregular samples. We show how the lifting scheme leads to ..."

Estimation and Inference in Econometrics

The astonishing increase in computer performance over the past two decades has made it possible for economists to base many statistical inferences on simulated, or bootstrap, distributions rather than on distributions obtained from asymptotic theory. In this paper, I review some of the basic ideas o ..."
