  • Ambrogi, Timothy (2004)
    This paper will introduce and formalize the problem of generating 16th-century Fuxian counterpoint using search algorithms. Several algorithms will be analyzed with respect to the problem domain, and the advantages of ...
  • Cueto, Paulina (2014)
    Cis-Regulatory Modules (CRMs) are the portion of DNA that initiates gene expression. Gene expression is the process through which the body turns DNA into functions and cells within an organism. In this paper I build upon ...
  • Rybeck, Gabriel (2016)
    Rapid advancements in the use of big data to make automated decisions may result in indirect discrimination. For example, Larson et al. (2015) find that the Princeton Review charges different prices by zip code resulting ...
  • Feinberg, Jason (2016)
    The nearest neighbor problem is one of the most important problems in computational geometry. Many of the solutions to this problem suffer from the "curse of dimensionality" that makes the runtime increase exponentially ...
  • Apte, Rohit (2001)
    In this thesis I will look at some simple Language Modeling techniques used in attacks on primitive encryption systems. My thesis will focus on two Markov models for English. I use the simpler of these models to implement ...
  • Shibulal, Shreyas (2015)
    To achieve improved real-time performance, hardware-based speech recognition systems have emerged in recent years. While past efforts have demonstrated drastic improvements over software-based speech recognition systems, ...
  • Mendelsohn, Richard (2015)
    The goal of this thesis is to create a suitable standard for evaluating lazy evaluation techniques, and to use this standard to compare existing methods of lazy evaluation in C++. For our standard we will create a rigorous ...
  • Lo, Ethan (2011)
    Missing data is found in virtually every large database, and can be a significant challenge for researchers who want to create analyses on the data. Several approaches have been developed to deal with missing data, but ...
  • Walker, Alden (2007)
    Natural language communication with robots has obvious uses in almost all areas of life. Computer-based natural language interaction is an active area of research in Computational Linguistics and AI. While there have been ...
  • Ramos, Juan (2003)
    The problem of computers understanding and communicating with humans using natural languages such as English is a complicated task with many details to examine and explore. The goal of this project, then, is to examine ...
  • Lukac, Martin (2002)
    The Number Field Sieve is currently the fastest algorithm for factoring. This paper covers each step of the algorithm explaining in detail the mathematics behind this version of the algorithm. The conjectured time complexity ...
  • Okun, Harry (2016)
    We collect the proofs and lemmas which enable linear time algorithms for first-order sentences on graph classes with bounded expansion. Bounded expansion is a property limiting the edge to vertex ratio of a graph and its ...
  • Martin-Noble, Geoffrey (2016)
    Advanced functional materials are crucial for addressing numerous challenges in medicine, communications, and energy. As highlighted by the White House Materials Genome Initiative, computational tools are critical for ...
  • Rush, Blair (2016)
    We are often interested in improving the performance of our programs in any way we can. Loop reconstruction is a common tool for improving performance. There are many different types of loop restructuing techniques depending ...
  • Lutze, Solomon (2011)
    This paper surveys methods of microprocessor optimization, particularly pipelining, which is ubiquitous in modern chips. Pipelining is a method of executing instructions in stages, so multiple instructions can be operating ...
  • Van Aken, Adam (2015)
    With the advancement of technology, daily interaction with computers is being relied on more and more. However, conventional interaction methods remain difficult or impossible to use for people with certain physical ...
  • Giovannelli, Daniel (2013)
    The decisions which language designers make when implementing new features, and the effects which those decisions have on a finished language, is a fascinating field of study which has been largely overlooked by many ...
  • Block, Aaron (2002)
    Quantum computers may provide a significant speed increase over classical computation. In order to fully exploit quantum computation, we need to have a firm mathematical understanding of quantum computation at its smallest ...
  • Guggenheimer, Brian (2016)
    This paper explores the limits of how established computer vision techniques can be applied to the problem of grading simple assignments. The goal is to allow teachers to be able to keep a traditional assessment format but ...
