    Abstract:

    As climate changes, coastal homeowners are potentially crucial actors in reducing the risks to property and human life from rising seas and increased hurricane activity. Absent strict, enforceable regulations mandating retrofitting of existing homes or major changes in homeowner insurance requirements, coastal resilience in a changing climate will largely reflect private, voluntary decisions of millions of individuals. However, research is scarce on the current risk level of U.S. coastal home…

  • Author(s):
    Simon Hinnekens
    Abstract:

    Thanks to improvements in biomedical research, biomechanics now combines physiotherapy with models and simulations using motion capture systems. Among possible movements, the lunge motion is often studied as it is a common exercise for muscular training and rehabilitation in which the hip extensors are the dominant muscles. Long and deep lunges are of particular interest because they require greater hip motion in both front and rear legs. In this thesis, markerless motion capture data from 12…

  • Abstract:

    The document describes how to preserve, distribute and repeat two high energy physics applications through Parrot and PTU. Both Parrot and PTU can trap the system calls involved in an application and record all the accessed files. In this way, all the dependencies of an application can be collected into a self-contained package, which can be further distributed and utilized to verify and repeat the original author’s work.

  • Inventor(s):
    James L. Massey
    Patent Number:
    US 3402393
    Description:

    Digital error correcting coding techniques involving the sensing of conditions under which the decoder is operating. In one aspect a monitoring device counts the ones in the decoding decision and in certain parity checks corrected by those decisions. In another aspect the code is supplemented such that one actual decoding error can create a number of apparent errors or ones, which enables early detection of conditions beyond the capability of the decoder. In another aspect fades are detected …

    Patent Number:
    US 3429334
    Description:

    Device for correcting or detecting errors in transmission of signal information, having an information signal memory, an adder for forming redundancy signals from connections between the adder and the memory in accordance with a convolutional code, the device constructed to enable backward or forward decoding of the message.

  • Inventor(s):
    James L. Massey
    Patent Number:
    US 3566352
    Description:

    Error correction in convolutionally coded messages, using a plurality of information digit streams and a single parity digital stream with each information digit being included as a component in the defining summation for exactly two parity digits spaced apart by a certain number of time intervals (a time interval being defined to include a digit from each stream), the time interval spacing between the two parity digits being the same for each information digit in a given stream but different…

    Patent Number:
    US 3500320
    Description:

    Bursts of errors in convolutionally coded messages are corrected by a decoder in which a parity checking circuit determines whether selected syndrome digits which lie within the constraint length of the code form a codeword in a linear block code having as its codewords the set of all patterns of said selected syndrome digits that are consistent with any error burst pattern confined to the beginning of said constraint length and upon the presence of such a codeword, error detecting and correc…
