  • Aversa, Luis; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1999-01-06)
    In this paper, we propose and evaluate an implementation of a prototype scalable web server. The prototype consists of a load-balanced cluster of hosts that collectively accept and service TCP connections. The host IP ...
  • Bestavros, Azer; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1997-05-14)
    High-speed networks, such as ATM networks, are expected to support diverse Quality of Service (QoS) constraints, including real-time QoS guarantees. Real-time QoS is required by many applications such as those that involve ...
  • Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1996-08-01)
    Load balancing is often used to ensure that nodes in a distributed systems are equally loaded. In this paper, we show that for real-time systems, load balancing is not desirable. In particular, we propose a new load-profiling ...
  • Tan, Can Ozan; Bullock, Daniel (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2007-04)
    Before choosing, it helps to know both the expected value signaled by a predictive cue and the associated uncertainty that the reward will be forthcoming. Recently, Fiorillo et al. (2003) found the dopamine (DA) neurons ...
  • Fishl, Bruce; Schwartz, Eric L.; Cohen, Michael A. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1996-08)
    Local image structure is widely used in theories of both machine and biological vision. The form of the differential operators describing this structure for space-invariant images has been well documented (e.g. Koenderink, ...
  • Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1999-11)
    A number of examples are given of how localist models may incorporate distributed representations, without the types of non-local interactions that often render distributed models implausible. The need to analyze the ...
  • Pinna, Baingio; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2005-03)
    Cognitive and gestalt visions theories consider incompleteness to be a necessmy and sufficient factor for inducing illusory figures. The role of incompleteness is studied herein by defining the inner logic subtended by use ...
  • Lindholm, Charles (Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland, 1997-12)
  • Lindholm, Charles (Sage, 1998-08)
  • Przybyszcwski, A.W.; Clarke, A.H. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1994-12)
    Eye and head movement data, were recorded under head fixed and head-free conditions, and compared with theoretical results obtained using a nonlinear model of eye-head coordination. The model explains slow, or pursuit ...
  • Park, Kihong (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1993-07-31)
    This paper presents a lower-bound result on the computational power of a genetic algorithm in the context of combinatorial optimization. We describe a new genetic algorithm, the merged genetic algorithm, and prove that for ...
  • DeSilva, Jeremy M.; Throckmorton, Zachary J. (Public Library of Science, 2010-12-28)
    BACKGROUND. In the Plio-Pleistocene, the hominin foot evolved from a grasping appendage to a stiff, propulsive lever. Central to this transition was the development of the longitudinal arch, a structure that helps store ...
  • Martin, Michael (University of Chicago Press, 1972)
  • Morcos, Hany; Matta, Ibrahim; Bestavros (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-07-14)
    Routing protocols in wireless sensor networks (WSN) face two main challenges: first, the challenging environments in which WSNs are deployed negatively affect the quality of the routing process. Therefore, routing protocols ...
  • Pessoa, Luiz (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1995-06)
    Mach bands are illusory bright and dark bands seen where a luminance plateau meets a ramp, as in half-shadows or penumbras. Ratliff, Milkman, and Kaufman (1983) showed that Mach bands are attenuated by placing stimuli, ...
  • Pessoa, Luiz (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1995-03)
    Mach bands are illusory bright and dark bands seen where a luminance plateau meets a ramp, as in half-shadows or penumbras. A tremendous amount of work has been devoted to studying the psychophysics and the potential ...
  • Holloway, Dustin T.; Kon, Mark; DeLisi, Charles (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2006-10-31)
    High throughput technologies, including array-based chromatin immunoprecipitation, have rapidly increased our knowledge of transcriptional maps-the identity and location of regulatory binding sites within genomes. Still, ...
