• Designs and methodologies for post-silicon timing characterization 

    Jang, Eun Jung (2013-05)
    Timing analysis is a key sign-off step in the design of today's chips, but technology scaling introduces many sources of variability and uncertainty that are difficult to model and predict. The result of these uncertainties ...

    Dooley, Erin Elizabeth; 0000-0001-9080-1693 (2016-06-23)
    PURPOSE: To examine the validity of wearable physical activity tracking devices. METHODS: Participants were 62 students. Participants wore a Polar HR chest strap, Actigraph GT3X+ Acceleremetor, Apple Watch, Fitbit Charge ...
  • Mocking embedded hardware for software validation 

    Kim, Steve Seunghwan
    This report makes the case for unit testing embedded systems software, a procedure traditionally found in application software development. While the challenges of developing and executing unit tests on embedded software ...
  • Toward a predictive model of tumor growth 

    Hawkins-Daarud, Andrea Jeanine (2011-05)
    In this work, an attempt is made to lay out a framework in which models of tumor growth can be built, calibrated, validated, and differentiated in their level of goodness in such a manner that all the uncertainties associated ...
  • Validating the 1-cm orbit 

    McWilliams, Hannah Elizabeth; 0000-0002-6808-1981 (2015-12)
    Determination of three dimensional orbit accuracy to the 1-cm level is a difficult problem for even today's most well-tracked satellites. Gravity fields that are extracted from low earth orbit (LEO) satellites operating ...
