Broadcast scheduling with multiple concurrent costs
(2012)Data dissemination via periodic broadcasting considers a set of items, each with a given request probability, size and scheduling cost. The goal is to construct a broadcast schedule that minimizes the mean query serving ...

The complexity of equilibria for riskmodeling valuations
(2016)Following the direction pioneered by Fiat and Papadimitriou in their 2010 paper [12], we study the complexity of deciding the existence of mixed equilibria for minimization games where players use valuations other than ...

Article
A cost mechanism for fair pricing of resource usage
(2005)We propose a simple and intuitive cost mechanism which assigns costs for the competitive usage of m resources by n selfish agents. Each agent has an individual demand

Article
The cost of concurrent, lowcontention Read&Modify&Write
(2005)The possibility or impossibility and the corresponding costs of devising concurrent, lowcontention implementations of atomic Read&Modify&Write (or RMW) operations in a distributed system were addressed. A natural class ...

Article
Facets of the fully mixed Nash equilibrium conjecture
(2010)In this work, we continue the study of the many facets of the Fully Mixed Nash Equilibrium Conjecture, henceforth abbreviated as the FMNE Conjecture, in selfish routing for the special case of n identical users over two ...

Infinite horizon average cost dynamic programming subject to ambiguity on conditional distribution
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2015)This paper addresses the optimality of stochastic control strategies based on the infinite horizon average cost criterion, subject to total variation distance ambiguity on the conditional distribution of the controlled ...

Article
Insight and perspectives for Content Delivery Networks
(2006)Content delivery over the Web has become an important element of improving web performance. Content delivery Networks (CDN) has been proposed to maximize bandwidth, improve accessibility, and maintain correctness through ...

Article
Isolating stock prices variation with neural networks
(2009)In this study we aim to define a mapping function that relates the general index value among a set of shares to the prices of individual shares. In more general terms this is problem of defining the relationship between ...

Article
Leastcost planning sequence estimation in labelled Petri nets
(2011)This paper develops a recursive algorithm for estimating the leastcost planning sequence in a manufacturing system that is modelled by a labelled Petri net. We consider a setting where we are given a sequence of labels ...

Article
Leastcost transition firing sequence estimation in labeled Petri nets with unobservable transitions
(2011)This paper proposes an approach for estimating the leastcost transition firing sequence(s) that matches (match) the observation of a sequence of labels produced by transition activity in a given labeled Petri net. Each ...

Article
Linearizability in the presence of drifting clocks and under different delay assumptions
(1999)The cost of usingmessag epassing to implement linearizable read/write objects for shared memory multiprocessors with drifting clocks is studied. We take as cost measures the response times for performingread and write ...

Low temperature and costeffective growth of vertically aligned carbon nanofibers using spincoated polymerstabilized palladium nanocatalysts
(2015)We describe a fast and costeffective process for the growth of carbon nanofibers (CNFs) at a temperature compatible with complementary metal oxide semiconductor technology, using highly stable polymerPd nanohybrid colloidal ...

Modeling the implications of DRAM failures and protection techniques on datacenter TCO
(IEEE Computer Society, 2015)Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is a key optimization metric for the design of a datacenter. This paper proposes, for the first time, a framework for modeling the implications of DRAM failures and DRAM error protection ...

A modular modeling approach for the design of reconfigurable machine tools
(Affiliation: Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, United StatesAffiliation: Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, CyprusCorrespondence Address: Ersal, T.Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, United Statesemail: tersal@umich.edu, 2004)A new generation of machine tools called Reconfigurable Machine Tools (RMTs) is emerging as a means for industry to be more competitive in a market that experiences frequent changes in demand. New methodologies and tools ...

Article
Nash equilibria in discrete routing games with convex latency functions
(2004)We study Nash equilibria in a discrete routing game that combines features of the two most famous models for noncooperative routing, the KP model [16] and the Wardrop model [27]. In our model, users share parallel links. ...

Article
A new model for selfish routing
(2004)In this work, we introduce and study a new model for selfish routing over noncooperative networks that combines features from the two such best studied models, namely the KP model and the Wardrop model in an interesting ...

Article
Parametric study and cost analysis of a solarheatingandcooling system for detached singlefamily households in hot climates
(2015)A solarheatingandcooling (SHC) system, consisting of a flatplate solar collector array, a hot water storage tank, and an absorption chiller unit is designed and modeled to satisfy thermal loads (space heating, domestic ...

Article
Periodic scheduling with costs revisited: A novel approach for wireless broadcasting
(2012)Periodic broadcast scheduling typically considers a set of discrete data items, characterized by their popularity, size and scheduling cost. A classic goal is the definition of an infinite, periodic schedule that yields ...
