The complexity of expansion problems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-06-26)
Graph-partitioning problems are a central topic of research in the study of algorithms and complexity theory. They are of interest to theoreticians with connections to error correcting codes, sampling algorithms, metric ...
High-performance algorithms and software for large-scale molecular simulation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-12-17)
Molecular simulation is an indispensable tool in many different disciplines such as physics, biology, chemical engineering, materials science, drug design, and others. Performing large-scale molecular simulation is of great ...
Characterizing and improving last mile performance using home networking infrastructure
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-07-15)
More than a billion people access the Internet through residential broadband connections worldwide, and this number is projected to grow further. Surprisingly, little is known about some important properties of these ...
Towards practical fully homomorphic encryption
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-07-24)
Fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) allows for computation of arbitrary func- tions on encrypted data by a third party, while keeping the contents of the encrypted data secure. This area of research has exploded in recent ...
On sparse representations and new meta-learning paradigms for representation learning
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-05-15)
Given the "right" representation, learning is easy. This thesis studies representation learning and meta-learning, with a special focus on sparse representations. Meta-learning is fundamental to machine learning, and it ...
The roles of allocentric representations in autonomous local navigation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-02-20)
In this thesis, I study the computational advantages of the allocentric represen- tation as compared to the egocentric representation for autonomous local navigation. Whereas in the allocentric framework, all variables of ...
