Analytical solutions for frequency estimators by interpolation of DFT coefficients
Liao J., Lo S.  Signal Processing 10093-100, 2014. Type: Article

Given a sequence of sinusoidal signals s[n] with additive noise in the time domain, a fundamental problem is to estimate its frequency. It has a wide range of applications, such as biomedical signal...

Constraints meet concurrency
Mauro J.,  Atlantis Publishing Corporation, Paris, France, 2014. 170 pp. Type: Book (978-9-462390-66-9)

Constraint-based execution and concurrency are valuable allies, but they are not natural ones. This book examines ways in which constraints and concurrency can be brought into harmony. The results reported show how constraints can be trimmed for...

Stewarding a legacy: responsibilities and relationships in the management of post-mortem data
Brubaker J., Dombrowski L., Gilbert A., Kusumakaulika N., Hayes G.  CHI 2014 (Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Toronto, Ontario, Canada,  Apr 26-May 1, 2014) 4157-4166, 2014. Type: Proceedings

Who should own your digital legacy (for example, your Facebook page or tweets) and manage your “digital afterlife” once you are deceased? As opposed to standard legal inheritance, this paper elaborately explores the option to employ...

Fast alternating-direction finite difference methods for three-dimensional space-fractional diffusion equations
Wang H., Du N.  Journal of Computational Physics 258305-318, 2014. Type: Article

Differential equations of fractional order have in recent years proven to be very useful tools for the mathematical modeling of many phenomena in science and engineering. Certain types of behavior that can be observed in reality can only be...

Risk: a multidisciplinary introduction
Klüppelberg C. (ed), Straub D. (ed), Welpe I. (ed),  Springer Publishing Company, Incorporated, New York, NY, 2014. 450 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319044-85-9), Reviews: (2 of 2)

Risk is diverse, diffuse, and multi-faceted; it cannot be addressed assuming fixed event propagation paths from root causes, or within sectorial bounds, as in traditional risk and reliability analysis. Furthermore, the information flow alongside...

The Merino-Welsh conjecture holds for series-parallel graphs
Noble S., Royle G.  European Journal of Combinatorics 3824-35, 2014. Type: Article

Orientation is an assignment of direction to each edge of an undirected graph. When none of the directed edges is in a cycle, the orientation is called acyclic. When every directed edge is in some cycle, the orientation is called totally...

The incremental commitment spiral model: principles and practices for successful systems and software
Boehm B., Lane J., Koolmanojwong S., Turner R.,  Addison-Wesley Professional, Upper Saddle River, NJ, 2014. 336 pp. Type: Book (978-0-321808-22-6)

This book is chock-full of accumulated knowledge, collective wisdom, and engineering best practices about what makes systems development successful. The incremental commitment spiral model (ICSM) extends and uses Boehm’s earlier...

Breast tissue 3D segmentation and visualization on MRI
Song H., Cui X., Sun F.  International Journal of Biomedical Imaging 20131-8, 2013. Type: Article

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a revolutionary imaging technology for many medical applications. The diagnosis of many forms of cancer and other serious conditions is made possible without invasive surgery. However, there is a significant...

Data just right: introduction to large-scale data & analytics
Manoochehri M.,  Addison-Wesley Professional, Upper Saddle River, NJ, 2013. 256 pp. Type: Book (978-0-321898-65-4)

Handling large-scale data, or big data, is among the current great trends in information and communications technology (ICT). Other trends (mobility, virtual market places, social networks, and the Internet of Things (IoT) and humans) produce...

Towards a linear algebra of programming
Oliveira J.  Formal Aspects of Computing 24(4-6): 433-458, 2012. Type: Article

We are, by now, quite used to relational interpretations of program semantics. Such interpretations live in a rich algebraic world. What if we wanted to use a probabilistic interpretation instead? Well, it turns out that this is a conservative...
