      A fundamental computational challenge that arises in the operation of online systems, services, and platforms is that of resource allocation. Broadly defined, a resource allocation problem is one where set of users generate ...
    • Algorithms for Analyzing Spatio-Temporal Data 

      Nath, Abhinandan (2018)
      In today's age, huge data sets are becoming ubiquitous. In addition to their size, most of these data sets are often noisy, have outliers, and are incomplete. Hence, analyzing such data is challenging. We look at applying ...
    • Algorithms for continuous queries: A geometric approach 

      Yu, Albert (2013)
      There has been an unprecedented growth in both the amount of data and the number of users interested in different types of data. Users often want to keep track of the data that match their interests over a period of time. ...
    • Algorithms for Geometric Matching, Clustering, and Covering 

      Pan, Jiangwei (2016)
      With the popularization of GPS-enabled devices such as mobile phones, location data are becoming available at an unprecedented scale. The locations may be collected from many different sources such as vehicles moving around ...
    • Algorithms for the Reeb Graph and Related Concepts 

      Parsa, Salman (2014)
      This thesis is concerned with a structure called the Reeb graph. There are three main problems considered. The first is devising an efficient algorithm for comnstructing the Reeb graph of a simplicial complex with respect ...
    • An Exploratory Study of Cell Growth and Division Data 

      Niu, Tong (2016)
      Understanding the mechanism behind cell-size control of bacteria such as E. coli has been an active research topic for decades. Until about 2010, most studies were limited to measurements at the cell population level. Recently ...
    • An Operating System Architecture for Networked Server Infrastructure 

      Irwin, David Emory (2007-12-14)
      Collections of hardware components are the foundation of computation and consist of interconnections of different types of the same core elements: processors, disks, memory cards, I/O devices, and network links. Designing ...
    • Applying Differential Privacy with Sparse Vector Technique 

      Chen, Yan (2018)
      In today's fast-paced developing digital world, a wide range of services such as web services, social networks, and mobile devices collect a large amount of personal data from their users. Although sharing and mining large-scale ...
    • Approximately Optimal Mechanisms With Correlated Buyer Valuations 

      Albert, Michael Joseph (2013)
      Cremer and McLean 1985 shows that if buyers valuations are suciently correlated, there is a mechanism that allows the seller to extract the full surplus from the buyers. However, in practice, we do not see the Cremer-McLean ...
